14 People Share Horror Stories About Bad Roommates

A desk drawer devoted to his fingernail clippings. I didn’t learn about it until the day he moved out. The pile was surprisingly huge.

12. He would grind his socks between his toes like a bad stripper grinds a shirt between their legs.

I guess I should put my story in here. I’ve been fortunate enough to have pretty good luck with roommates. Normally, just the usual stuff that I can deal with. This one though…

-Absolute slob. Was borderline morbidly obese and like I mentioned in a reply, would grind his socks between his toes like a bad stripper grinds a shirt between their legs. Like he had some kind of athlete’s foot and never bought any Lotrimin.

-Just reeked. All the time. I would borrow his car sometimes to run to the drug store if he was parked behind me. An SUV with empty McDonald’s bags everywhere. From the floor to the seat.

-Would do just the dumbest shit. Every decision he made regarding the house made no sense. Not a single thing.

-Like I said he was a slob. Instead of cleaning up after himself regularly, would let the shit pile gather up for two weeks then would go on a cleaning binge. One time, after one of these, he accused me of being dirty and said I needed to help out.

-Ended up trying to steal from me by lying about our cable bill. Also, he hadn’t paid it in like 3 months. When I found out, I told him I would be paying the company directly. When he found he went to his dads (our landlord) and must’ve whined cuz I got a text from my landlord about 45 min later saying he would be handling the cable and folding it into the rent. He also changed our online username/pw for looking at the account online and wouldn’t tell me.

-I worked in an home office taking calls in our basement. I deal with some very sensitive private information and can’t have people lurking about. He decided in the middle of my shift to start rearranging furniture down there. I told him it wasn’t the best time and he stormed off raging. This was despite the fact that I only worked 2-6 that day and was home the entire time.

Needless to say, I left and am at the folks’ place for the time being…
