FML’s Roommates from hell

If we could, we’d probably all live on our own. Exotic dancers would do our cleaning and housework; bartenders would serve us glamorous cocktails with mini paper umbrellas in them every hour on the dot. We would also have no need for unfulfilling relationships, search for that one true love that rom-coms would have us believe actually existed. Life would be one long parade of cats, booze and high-carb meals. Unfortunately, the economy as it is means that we can’t afford to live the dream, unless you’re the person who invented the Rastafarian-hat-with-the-fake-dreadlocks. Some of us, not having that special someone (i.e. an extra income), or the money themselves, have to resort to sharing their accommodation with other people, mainly strangers (AKA weirdoes). And that’s when the trouble starts. Because hell is other people, as French footballer Sartre said. It starts with food in the refrigerator being labeled with each other’s names, then maybe names and polite reminders, and then some added threats and insults. Or the case of the roommate who doesn’t pay his rent because he spent all his money on getting a bangin’ new stereo system for his piece of shit truck. There are many reported cases of terrible roommates; wasn’t The Exorcist just an example of two roommates just not getting along? Here’s another installment in FML’s video series, about roommates and the troubles they can cause. Enjoy!

Waking up with a used condom on your face has got to top the cake.

This reminds me of my college years when I had some pretty awful roomies. My fellow American ones were by far the worst and the Japanese students studying abroad were the best. Over the course of four years, about 10-12 different roommates moved in and out of my place. Totally sucked.
