My roommate noticed I'm not going into work anymore. I told her I left that job and am looking for a new one. She said "so now you're a professional homeowner, basically?" I disagreed with that assessment. She said I'm leeching off of her and the other girl because I don't want to work.

'She said I'm leeching off of her': Unemployed live-in landlord changes terms, draws ire from roommate who is subsidizing his existence

The dynamic of a homeowner bringing in roommates is interesting: on the one hand, they're a roommate; on the other, the landlord. This can create delicate situations and result in either party harboring ill sentiments for the other. Many people are pouring a significant amount of money (>30% of their income) into their rent, which is the equivalent of setting a pile of money on fire every week — in that it does nothing to help you invest and advance your life. It's no secret that many (most) of…

One is guaranteed to be exposed to all kinds of people from all walks of life and experience, and while that's a beautiful thing, you sure do run into a…

Weird Choosing Beggar Wants Roommate Who Pays to Be a Live-In Nanny

There are a lot of similarities between a roommate and a domestic worker. For one, both live in your house—which is probably the most obvious. Both are also responsible (partly or wholly) for doing chores and keeping the place neat and tidy. (They probably also spend more time than they want to cleaning up after your lazy buns.) They restock common items, may help care for your pets and may provide you with a source of companionship. But, for as many similarities as they might share there are s…

"All of my roommates knew that these sandwich bags in the fridge were my dog food.  One day, I come home, and my last 3 bags are gone. Like I didn’t misplace them. They were there this morning, gone. I had to make an emergency grocery run, and everybody denied eating it."

Weird Roommate Steals and Eats Dog Food, Gets Revenge With Petty Prank

Alright, just going to clear the elephant in the room here right off the bat. Why in the Hugh Heck-ner was this person eating their roommate's dog food? Like, you just see some mashed food shoved into little sandwich baggies, and your first thought to yourself is “Oh, gosh that looks positively succulent . I simply cannot wait to consume each and every one of these.” It's not uncommon these days for pet owners to prep their own food mixes from ‘human food’. We'd often make my dog his favorite a…

'She said that we need to leave': Roommate insists that her father will be staying in female roommate's bed, internet disagrees

Living with people, whether strangers or friends, is a gallimaufry of strange and weird experiences. Everyone's a little odd in their own way, and our strange habits have a way of manifesting themselves in the worst way possible when in a joint living situation. (Good thing that, even in 2018, one in three adults lived with an adult roommate.) All things considered, a little bit of strange is a best-case scenario… As there is no end to the horrible ordeals that a terrible roommate can inflict u…

Terrible Roommate Tries to Bully Roommates, Shocked When They Move Out

Well, if it isn't the consequences of my own actions?.. That's exactly what this abhorrent roommate must have been thinking when her roommates announced they were moving out after she decided to make their lives a living hell. The terrible roommate had decided that she was “unhappy” and was going to move out prior to her discovery that she was getting a steal of a deal for her BigMac supersized room. So, instead of moving out and putting herself in an inferior position… somewhere in that twiste…

Roommate Books Hotel Room Due to Lack of Hot Water, Live-In Landlord Refuses to Pay

This tenant took matters into their own hands, and when their live-in landlord let them know that the hot water would be out for the weekend, they booked a hotel room for themselves without saying a word. After pulling a vanishing act for the entire weekend, they returned and hit the landlord with the bill expecting them to pay it. The landlord, Redditor u/SheHadaStaycation, posted this topic to Reddit's r/ AITA (Am I the A-Hole) subreddit, wondering if they were wrong for refusing to pay for t…

Guy Shares This Insane Note His Roommate Sent Their Landlord

A terrible roommate is something that can turn your entire world upside down. There's nothing like coming home from a long day's work only to experience the antagonizing torment of sharing your space with an insane stranger. This hellscape is all too real in our modern dystopian world, with more adults “doubling up” or sharing living spaces with someone other than their partner than ever before. A study done by Pew Research Center in 2018 showed this trend, and that was pre-COVID times, so you…
