I live with 3 girls and there was a day i called the cleany lady and let them know that she was going to clean my things and if they wanted her to clean their things let her know. The day when the cleany lady was cleaning my things and their things i payed her my part and then when she went to them to charge her service the girls were like owowo we though u were going to pay the cleany service... they thought it because there were 2 times when they didnt hav money i was too nice and payed all the cleany service but does it mean that if i called the cleany lady i was going to pay fr all of them as well!! they just told mee that i wasnt clear and i didnt tell them that this time things hav changed and each one has to pay . but i was clear by telling them that i called the cleany lady just to pay my things !!!

I had a 4-day room mate once.  My best friend, played to my sympathies, and begged to move in to get her daughter away from her abusive ex.  She offered to pay half of everything, and we spent a month moving all of her things into my place.  The day of her official move-in, I told her what her half was for the month, to which she responded, "I'm not paying rent."  She tried to take advantage of me.  I told her she had two options - stay and pay rent, don't and move out.  Thus, my 4-day room mate.  Moral of the story?  There are many faces to wolves in sheep's clothing, and no one is exempt from trying to take advantage of you.

Good list! All of these seemed pretty accurate, especially the thief. I'd much rather not live with someone I don't trust!

I rent rooms in my house and have had every kind of roommate known to man.  I had a follower who followed me from when I opened my eyes to when I closed them.  I've had thiefs - gone were my laptop, diamond earrings and Social Security card.  I had a gay guy who turned my lower level into a gay nightclub and always took my things without asking.  Mostly I've had slobs.  One was a well educated older man who lived like a pig and brought a hooker in.  Currently, I'm getting rid of one who completely floods the newly-renovated bathroom so I have to mop the floor and take the bath rug outside to dry every day.  He leaves the front door open, works on his car and leaves me with all the crud to deal with and smokes in the room tho he denies it.  Today I was outside and saw all the cigarette butts he threw out his bedroom window that I get to clean up.  One day he went out and left the bathroom sink running full blast and I didn't know it for a few hours - no wonder my water bill doubled.  Another one I think was a junkie and brought his girlfriend in to live.  He denied it but how come her car was parked outside every night, all night long.  He wanted to bring in a stove and sealed the bottom of his door with plastic so I knew he was dealing drugs.  He also broke my clothes dryer.  No matter how hard you try to check people out, there's always something going on with them.

I was told "there are children here."  I didn't know that meant four out-of-control teens who played their music so loud that the bass caused two framed prints to jump off the wall and become wrecked.  The wouldn't lock the front door and this was when the Night Stalker was roaming the area. I slept with a rock hammer under my pillow.  They stole my food and went into my room when I wasn't there, stole money and jewelry, and their mother defended them!  One would ditch school, come home, and smoke pot all day.  The final straw was when I found a revolver in the (open) garage.  I left that day and was charged money because I hadn't given 30 days notice.  I was also charged for damages their cat caused.  Never again.  I never had roommates after that and never will.

I had one room mate who was on ODSP, when I first took her in, "I am a very rich woman, you want have any problem with the rent." when she moved in she gave me a piece of paper saying it was from her work place, that was strange, her screws were loose so went after my place to unscrew anything everything on sight, her parents had gone and when they came back, they couldn't find their daughter, how the heck did they know she was my tenant, but they did, they use to come knocking at my door, and demand seeing her, I had to politely let them go. The tenant was a crook she stole everything I had from my room, and took off when her time came to leave, month to month is the best way to go, cause as long as I don't get along with people who bother me I give them one month's notice for them to leave, or call the police if they don't leave.

I cant top that. That she was bad.

awww it can't be THAT bad with a best friend as long as there is respect. My best friend and I are the types that love to sleep in and stay up all night. I already know what she does that gets on my nerves from sleep overs and it's things that get on my nerves whether we live together or not. Because she takes forever getting ready for something and if I'm not part of it I don't care, but if we're going somewhere together then I end up waiting in the car anyway, or go up to her place and pace around. We don't have the exact same style either but very similare taste in food. And she's always wanting to go out when I don't feel like it or the other way around and we end up mad at eachother and we're not even roommates so, I think it wouldn't change much. Only money wise, because we like spending on eachother lol and don't believe in paying back but that might get tough later on...

Why is it, that when you talk about nightmare roommates, the one showing a thief just happen to be black, out of 21 situations you show black hands taking money from a wallet?   There's not a black face in any of the other 20 situations.  CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!​!!!

This was the most hilarious slide show I ever went through.....particularly the picturesOpen-mouthedOpen-mouthed!!!!  It's the ghost room mate that will be the most disturbing.....what are they up to will keep me up a lot. At least you will know what the illegal Entrepreneur is about for you to manage the situation from there.

And as far as handling the drug dealer, just make an anonymous phone call to the cops...just make sure you don't come back until he's been taken away...

 

Man, I'm evil.....

Both my roomie and I are "ghosts" between our different work and school schedules, he usually spends weekends at the parents, ect....it's GREAT, half of the expenses, none of the drama!!Open-mouthed  We don't even fight over the bathroom-he's usually gone while I'm there, or vice versa!!

 

Don't know WHAT'S going to happen when we graduate next summer....probably drive each other up a tree....

I've dealt with various roomates for the past 4 years and I'm done! They have no respect for your personal property they never clean and they eat up all your food. I've decided I will try my hardest to get my own place because I haven't done to good with roomates.

Sharing space can be just as difficult. I rent the front house from the owner that lives in the back house. I'm at my wits' end with her "new" dog she got after I moved in, if I leave the sliding glass back door open for my "good" dogs to go out, her dog runs in and pees in my home, now her original dog does the same thing. And the huge mess along the side of my house is still there after she said told me when she showed me the house and again when I moved in that she'd get rid of.  Her pool rafts, balls, and surfboards are strewn all over the backyard along with whatever mess she makes anytime she visits it. I'd like to have a talk to her about community areas, however, she's so sensitive I'm afraid she'll cry and hold a grudge forever. I love the house, but dealing with her mail being stuffed in my mailbox due to her lack of ever visiting it to collect hers, the fact she's broke so I feel bad asking her to fix anything in my house and her negativity about everything in her life is getting to me... Oh, how I'd love to be ready to buy my own house!!

I had two room mates a year or so after high school, they were good friends of mine who I worked with at a fast food restaurant for a while.  They exemplified two of the traits listed in the examples, slob, party animal, but I was, to some extent, the clean-freak.  We worked most of it out between the three of us. One of them followed me to a new job when I made Manager of a local video store, but when I lost my job, they would come home with some of their friends and expect me to clean up after them. When I didn't they got their panties in a wad and started making an issue out of it. I was still paying my fair share of rent and didn't think I should be recruited as the 'maid' unless they paid me to do it.  My major resistance to this was that I wasn't just cleaning up after the three of us, but all their friends as well. I ended up moving out.Thumbs down Our friendship suffered for a while too.
