    Room Mate

    Hey guys Ive got an awful roommate that I havent talked with in almost 3 weeks and today he asked me to clean the apartment. Most of the messes are not mine. there has been serious tension between us and I feel like there is going to be an argument/fight in the near future.

    this guy has no social skills and probably hates my guts, since most have you have been to college how do you guys handle these situation.

    by the way he says sports are a waste of money and they should not be wasting everyones time.

    Can someone give me some advice?

    Jack that mother****er in the face.

    But seriously, screw him. The semester is almost over and if it's his ****, he'll have to clean it up when he moves out.

    Re: Room Mate

    How often do you help clean the apartment? Just trying to figure out if he has a point.

    Re: Room Mate

    Youre going to want to start by covering his room in plastic, with a table in the middle.

    Then you're going to want to put up some pictures of the people he has wronged.

    Something like this when you're all done:


    Let me know when you've got that done and we'll continue.

    Re: Room Mate

    Just move out or ask him to. I had an awful roommate too. He basically went crazy our senior year and fell out with the whole group of friends. Basically, enough got to be enough and I went to our apartment manager and told her I wanted out, or wanted them to relocate him. He moved out, and life was awesome. We used his room as extra storage/party space, and had a great rest of the year.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    My solution is still the easiest. If it's your **** that needs cleaning, clean it. Otherwise, tell him to do it himself.

    Or fight him. That fixes everything if you win.

    Re: Room Mate

    One thing to think about: nobody is perfect, not even you. There is probably something that you are doing that contributes to the situation but perhaps you don't know what it is. Maybe he has already tried to bring it up and you thought "whats he complaining about, its no big deal"; well to him maybe it is. There is always 2 sides to a story. Just something to think about before its gets outa hand.

    Re: Room Mate

    I had a psycho roommate. My fault for not making sure she was okay before I moved in(i trusted a friend). Anyways she eventually moved out and got another random guy to move in who was a slob but not near the ******* tendencies she had.

    If I were you, just say **** it. Maybe he is counting on you bending to his will. If you know you didn't make the mess then don't pick it up.

    Re: Room Mate

    I actually did this and it worked well. THere wasn't another problem the rest of the year, to my amazement.

    Clean the apartment. Any mess that's his, put all that crap in his room. Don't be an ******* about it. Don't dump food in his bed or anything, just put his messes in his room.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.
