Roommates. Ya can’t live with ’em, and thanks to housing cost significantly outpacing wages, ya can’t live without ’em.
That’s what my grandma always said.
If you’re lucky, you end up with a roommate you actually like, or maybe just kinda never see. But if you’re unlucky, then you end up like these poor saps on Twitter.
10. This aspiring artist
Hey where are you getting your material evaluations done because I think they might be a scam.

9. This dog abuser
The fact that he’s homophobic is irrelevant but makes this more concerning, somehow.
my homophobic roommate on the boat just grabbed a dog by the collar and held it in the air and laughed ?? and if that’s not psycho vibes I don’t know what is… if I mysteriously die it was deffo him guys no joke he’s a freak

7. This wannabe environmentalist
On the upside – free food for you.
Crazy roommate: I'm v focused on the environment and mother earth!
Also crazy roommate: Moves out,leaves $200 of unopened food, and tries to "recycle" a bunch of trash including unused household goods

6. This person with no soul
I don’t even understand how one could do this.
My flatmate eats boiled chicken with no seasoning and HE'S scared of ME

3. This book thief
Man, who DOES that?
Feeling a little frustrated and cranky. Wanted to relax and read a book today but my former roommate stole most of my books.

2. This person from around the block
My my, how the tables have turned.

1. This water waster
I hate to tell you this, but according to my math, that shower (wasteful as it was) still only cost about $3.
If you’ve got a cheaper therapist than that please do tell.
My roommate just finished her 1.5 hour shower and apologized, saying it was "soooo theraputic".
Honestly, actual therapy would be cheaper.

I think all of those folks should find new people to live with, for their own sanity.
