    My present roommate, he sleeps through his alarm for about 30 minutes at a time. I am sitting here typing and can hear his damn alarm, its been going off since I got home 15 minutes ago for lunch. I rarely hear it cause I'm rarely here at the sametime he is but if it starts going off someday when he is away on vacation or something, damn I will be pissed.

    After I bought my house, I had a guy move in. I used to be a trusting person. Long story short, in the 6-7 weeks that he was here, he paid rent only once, could never afford utilities, and the final straw was when I discovered a credit card had been stolen and maxed out. I gave him two hours to get out of my house. Had to change to locks.


    Murphy's Law and my luck go hand in hand....

    Used too share a house with some friends. I would be gone for a week at a time, (at girlfriend's apt.) and when I'd get home, they'd expect me too do dishes I didn't dirty. Hell with that crap !!!! I have no problem cleaning up after myself, but no way am I going too clean up a mess I didn't help make. I was at the house about 3 or 4 days out of the month, and still paid 80% of the bills. The least they could have done was keep everything clean.

    um yeah... guess you lived in the same house but not on the same planet. I'd not be copesetic with paying 80% other peoples' and oding their work too...

    I had a roommate while I was in the dorms in college who had exema (I think that's what it's called). Anyways, he had to use this prescription lotion to keep his skin from being totally dry. He also avoided using soap in the shower cause it dried out his skin even more. After he would grease up he would chill in his underwear cause other wise the grease would soak into his clothes. Oh by the way he didn't have a computer so he would get all greased up and then sit in my padded cloth covered chair and noodle around on my computer till all the lotion had soaked in... to my chair!:mad:

    That was just the tip of the iceberg. As I said he didn't have a computer so he would spend a lot of time on mine. He ended up downloading stuff, screwing with my settings, deleting all sorts of files, and simply using it when I wanted to be on it.

    We were also on a limited dining plan, but I would go to an on campus store and buy some snacks or something like that on my meal plan and he would snarff all my goodies and leave me with crap.

    We bought some furniture together at a second hand store and split the cost 50/50. Then at the end of the year he wanted me to buy his share off of him because he wasn't coming back the following year and I was. I didn't budge on that one.

    This lists go on and on, but for how nice the guy was, he had zero consideration for other people.

    Tell me about it. It lasted 1 year till the lease was up. The first 6 months was cool, but the last 6 months I had too pay the majority of the bills.

    Couldn't.... I was trying to get the Navy to help me, and any ass-kicking on my part would have worked against me. 'Course, he's re-stationed, and nothing was done about it.

    You just can't understand that some people may like something you don't. [Insert profanity and imuture name calling] and please STFU about it.

    I lived with 4 other roommates, and we split all the utilities 5 ways. Well that was't bad, but one of my roommates decided his $25 was too much. So while we were gone he would go around and turn everyone's heat down. (Each room had an electric base board heater with its own thermostat.) This was in Idaho during a cold winter.

    That made me mad, so I went into his room and turned his heat off. Oh, and I also opened his window. At least he never touched my thermostat again.

    Another of the roommates had an annoying girlfriend with a 2-year-old. She would give her daughter my Lucky Charms, but only after picking out all the marshmellows for her and dumping the grain cereal back in the box.

    my most annoying roomie was hands down the most selfish SOB to walk the earth! One of those, whats mine is mine, yours is mine kinda stuff. I worked graveyards for awhile, and he'd get home at 4:00 and CRANK the stereo up...of course waking me up. BS! So after a week or 2 of this, one day I got home on a saturday morning (6:00am) and cranked the stereo up for him....he ran out and ripped the wires out of the stereo and proceeded to tell ME how much of an ass i was!! S'ok though, I poked his GF a few months after that and we parted our seperate ways on good terms ??he said he didn't like her much ayway??

    My roomate in the dorm freshman year woke me up all the time. The best one was after a night of drinking he falls out of his bunk bed at 530am. As he gets up I roll over and ask him what the hell he is doing. He says "I'm going fishing with my uncle." He then staggers into the bathroom vomits in the bathtub, and passes out on the bathroom floor. Classic.
