Classist Roommate Gets Called Out After Insulting Plumber

People that assume other people aren't carrying on with meaningful and incredibly helpful professions just because they didn't go get that college education are something else, man. This particular roommate got a swift reality check after making some disrespectful remarks pointed toward the fee that the plumber charged to come through and clean up their literal sh*t. The moral judges of Reddit's AITA in this thread are in agreement that the classist roommate was the one who was out of bounds in this scenario.

Woman Can't Stand Roommates, Breaks Lease, Roommates Flip Out

If you're not prioritizing your own needs, then people are bound to take advantage of that and walk all over you. When it comes to maintaining the balance in the fragile ecosystem that can be an apartment/house with younger roomies, it can end up being a bit of a struggle. Dramas can break out at a moment's notice, and if people aren't committed to playing nice with one another, you can find yourself in some real hot water. In terms of the scenario we have here, it seems like the woman's decision to move on out of the place was totally warranted.

Housing Listing Describes An Absolutely Disastrous Abode

Just when we thought we'd seen it all, we come across a listing for a "home" that looks anything but hospitable to its residents. We can only imagine what kind of gauntlet the realtor tasked with trying to sell this place has had to run. Like, what about this place, literally anything at all, would inspire a human being to put the offer down? I guess it could be a wonderfully difficult project if you wanted to try and flip it? The monstrous abode clearly needs some tender loving care.

Why is this way better than it should be? Seriously, there's a catchy vibe going on. Outside of that though, it's a pretty good idea to act out conversations with choosing beggars or other strange people in the online housing world. There are some serious gems.
