Reddit is always a fun ride on the crazy side, but sometimes you almost wish you hadn’t clicked. That’s what this list feels like because even though you know it’s going to be bad, you can’t stop reading about these awful roommate situations. We all know living with someone is hard, but moving in with strangers is even harder. You have no idea how they grew up, what habits they’ve learned, or whether they might have a screw loose. If you’ve never lived with a roommate, count yourself lucky! These people below lived in their own personal nightmares for months. True, some of these transgressions aren’t that bad, but some of them will have you cringing in sympathy and thanking your lucky stars you weren’t in this situation. Some people really need to either grow up or live alone!
#1: Responsibilities Not Included
There’s nothing quite like a slap in the face when you realize your roommate has been taking all your rent money and using it. It’s not the most novel story, but it’s still infuriating. It’s also a good warning for anyone who is passing rent money to a roommate instead of a landlord.
Take this as a precautionary tale and always ask for a copy of the rental receipt because evictions can wreak havoc on your ability to rent or own property later. This guy probably couldn’t care less, but everyone on that lease with him will struggle later on in life to do simple things like move into a new place.
