It’s great to have a neat roommate, but this roommate takes it 10 steps too far. They’ll constantly nag you for not putting away that one dish you used 20 minutes ago or for not taking out the trash at exactly 2:15 pm every Tuesday.
Okay, so this one’s not a technical roommate, but everyone has had that one roommate who just has to have their significant other over all the time, to the point where they really should start paying some rent...
Having a roommate that cooks all the time can be great, except when it consistently looks like a tornado hit your kitchen after every one of their culinary experiments. And God forbid you need a dish for your own food - it’s being used to create a masterpiece and you’ll never see it again.
Luckily the partier roommate doesn’t tend to exist as much outside of your college years, but it can still be irritating when you’re trying to study for that big exam and your roommate invited over a “small group of friends” that actually turns into the rager of the century in your living room.
Conversely, we have the slob who couldn’t care less about cleanliness. In fact, the slob is a person who has absolutely no sense of what a shared space is and will leave their old food sitting around for days on end. When you gently point out to them that just maybe they should put that away, they seem bewildered that anything could be wrong at all!
It’s great to have people over to hang out, but if your roommate is constantly inviting people over without asking you first, then it can get pretty irritating. Sometimes after a long day you just want to head straight to your room and not have to talk to anyone.
Instead of simply talking to you about something they’re annoyed about, the Passive Aggressive Note-Writer leaves post-it notes everywhere to detail everything they don't like, because confrontation is too hard for them, man.
You know, the one who’s constantly asking mommy and daddy for a “loan” and can never seem to hold down a job for longer than two months. This person is probably a big part of why you decide to never live with Craigslist randos again.
Why is it that the people who play their music the loudest are always the ones with the worst musical taste? And they also seem to insist on playing it either early in the morning or late at night when you’re trying to sleep.
That’s what headphone were invented for, people!
15. The One Who Insists That You Should Split The Rent Evenly
This person is the epitome of cheap-assedness. You’re moving into a new place and they insist that they take the larger room with a walk-in closet and huge bathroom while you’re stuck with a closet-sized room that barely fits your bed. And they have the nerve to ask you to pay the same amount of rent.
