Living with your best friends can go one of two ways – Either extremely great or terribly wrong, and you can assume that most people will tell you that it usually goes the latter way. There is something about sharing a space that is just so specific for everyone involved, that even if you love each other and enjoy each other's company, it does not mean that you will enjoy living together. The main problem is that you will not know until you try, and that is why most people would recommend simpl…

But when your parents come to visit you, it can get quite… tricky, to say the least. The biggest problem of all, is the sleeping situation – Where will your parents stay? Will…

Woman replaces shampoo with vinegar to figure out which roommate is using her products: 'I called them out'

Sharing may be caring, but using without permission is cause for petty revenge… Sure, roommates share things all the time but those items are usually agreed upon by both parties. It's not even about being possessive of one's belongings; it's financial as well. If you and your roommate share groceries, then the cost for groceries should be split evenly amongst everyone in the household. Some of you are probably wondering why this needs to be addressed, but you'd be surprised how many entitled ro…
