As I was studying in my room one afternoon, my roommate came home with the new Transformers DVD. I could only hear her come in so we didn't make eye contact, and she didn't say hello. The first thing I hear (in the most transformer-like voice an 18 year old girl can make),

I once lived with three other girls, one of which had just bought a new microwave. One night, she and I came home to find that something had exploded in the microwave. My roommate was pissed; not only did someone explode something but they just left it there! She knocked on the other girls’ bedroom doors and the culprit came running out of her room, “No, no, no! It’s okay! It’s just wax!” and points at her arm. It’s okay to explode wax in the microwave because you waxed your arms? No.

Help Yourself

One of my roommates sweetly helped me pack up my things and move out of our apartment. About a week later, I saw she posted some pictures online in a few of my clothes!

What's Yours is Mine

One morning, I woke up to see that my roommate was getting dressed in a new top that belonged to me. I hadn't even worn it yet! I told her, "Hey, that top is brand new." She just laughed, took the tags off, and walked right out the door.

Work it Out

When I lived with roommates, I used to work out to exercise DVDs in my room. One of my roommates would shout at me from the other side of my bedroom door, "I know you're having sex in there! I hear that heavy breathing!" She refused to believe that I was just working out!

Hot Dog Juice

I once had a roommate who would only eat hot dogs and ground beef. She would leave hot dog juice in the fridge and stringy ground beef on the stove.

Late Night Phone Calls

My roommate sophomore year of college was an absolute sweetheart. We got along well and remain friendly to this day; however, there was just one thing she would do that even today drives me bananas. After a few months of living together, I suddenly woke up one night at 3AM to hear her talking. Confused, I started listening and realized she was speaking Spanish, which told me she was on the phone with her mom. I thought that was bizarre, since I know my parents go to sleep like old people do at 9PM, but I brushed it off thinking that maybe she was having a bad night and needed some guidance. 
Fast forward a week, and I woke up at 4AM hearing her talking again, but this time she was giggling like a fool and speaking in English. I knew it couldn't be her mom on the other end and so I listened until I finally heard her say her boyfriend’s name! It was strange because her boyfriend not only went to school with us, but he lived in a dorm literally connected to ours. I let it slide the first couple of times it happened, but soon she was up every night either chatting with her mom or her boyfriend until the crack of dawn!

Sorry for Being so Loud Last Night

I was graduating in December and my lease ended in August, so I took to Craigslist to find something temporary. A woman in her late twenties messaged me, and while she seemed quirky, she was clean and fine with short-term. Everything was cool until she got a boyfriend. Apparently they were quite sexually active. I never heard anything, but the roommate cornered me in my room to apologize for being "soooo loud." This conversation happened repeatedly.

Today we also have our move ticket give away WINNER!

Leave it to Beaver

I once had a roommate who had a chubby boyfriend named Beaver who would sleep on our couch without a shirt on. EVERY. DAY. Rain or shine.

Keep it in the Bedroom

One night, I came home from a long day at work to find a guys pants in the middle of our living room and a bunch of candles lit around the apartment. The least they could have done was keep it in the bedroom!

Someone Under My Bed

I lived in the dorms my freshman year of college, sharing a room with one other girl. Much to my dismay, her boyfriend would always be hanging out in our tiny 75 square foot room. He would bring his roommate over, and they both would end up sleeping over. Her boyfriend in her bed, his roommate UNDER my bed.

The Alcoholic

My roommate would drink vodka from a Nalgene water bottle on a nightly basis and tell us it was water.

Haha. Not funny.

One of my roommates was a true prankster and as hilarious as he thought he was, he just mostly ticked me off. One night, my alarm went off at 3am. Startled, I jumped out of bed, clumsily searching around my room for the source of the noise. It took me forever to finally find it under a pile of clothes. At the time, I just thought it was a strange, isolated incident. But then it happened again, the next night (or morning) at 3am. This time, I put two and two together, and knew it was my roommate. Furious and delirious from waking up from a dead sleep, I shut off the alarm, which was hidden under a floor board this time, and yelled “JERK!” into the darkness. In the morning he laughed it off, called me a few names, and I thought we were good but that night when my alarm went off at 3am for the third time, I got out of bed enraged, snatched the alarm from behind my box fan and chucked it out the window. I watched it shatter on the street and in the morning, I picked up the pieces and put them in front of my obnoxious roommate. “Happy? You owe me an alarm clock.”

When Your Roommate Embarrasses You...

 My roommate and I went to a party together. She playfully told me that if I didn't ask this cute guy to dance, she would sing to him for me. So I went and asked him, and as we started dancing, she decided to sing to him anyway! The most awkward  performance/audience/third wheel  situation I've even been a part of.

Cupboard Doors

I once lived with several girls and we had a tendency to leave cupboard doors open. One of the girls was particularly annoyed by this and asked the rest of us to start closing the cupboard doors. Of course, we tried to remember but our efforts were in vain and three days later, she unscrewed every cupboard door in the kitchen and hid them all in her car! This same roommate would take our dishes and hide them in the closet if they weren’t cleaned directly after eating.

I'm Tired of Listening to You Talk

My boyfriend and I were hanging out at his house. In the kitchen, his roommate and roommate’s girlfriend were also hanging out. We walked into the kitchen while they were talking, and my boyfriend commented on something that was said. The roommate’s girlfriend looked my boyfriend dead in the eyes, and said sternly “I’m tired of listening to you talk.” We didn’t even know how to react to that, so we just stayed quietly in the living room for the rest of the night.

Bloody Mess

My diabetic roommate would check her blood sugar by pricking her finger and collecting the blood onto this little test strip, as many of you may already know. However, this roommate would then just drop the little bloody test strips right on the floor. All over the house

Mermaid Roommates

I lived with a girl once who only ever took baths, never showers...which isn't too ridiculously weird, but a little peculiar for a 20 something adult.  Even stranger, was that every time I would use the bathroom after she bathed, the bathroom floor would be covered in half an inch of water. Literally, water everywhere! I couldn't understand it until one day I heard it....I mean, her. She was THRASHING around in the tub. One could only assume she was doing flips or 'playing mermaid' by the amount of water you would hear splashing out of the tub and onto the floor. 

A Rotting CrockPot

On Sundays, we would take turns cooking dinner for everyone in our apartment. A roommate used the crock pot one week. After dinner she filled it up with water to let it soak to clean it. We all thought she'd leave it over night, a day MAX. But no, she let it sit there on the counter for DAYS. We started leaving sticky notes on it that said "clean me!", but she still didn't get the hint. It became the awkward elephant in the room...and it started growing stuff. Eventually one of the other roommates got so sick of it she just cleaned it out. The roommate who used it never said anything about it.
