Today, I had to try to convince my roommate that, yes, you do need to use dish soap when you hand wash dishes because of bacteria in old food. She still won't believe me, insisting that, "There's no such thing as bacteria in food." FML

Make them a special dinner with raw chicken and eggs


I'm pretending this is sarcasm #1, just to make myself feel better

It was sarcasm but I guess I didn't really make it clear. It's hard to tell when your typing

Sometimes, I wonder how people survive so long...

Ever see the movie "Idiocracy?"

It's probably time to get a new roommate.

It's possible that op and her roommate aren't in school together but are just simply splitting rent to make living more affordable

She probably filled out the application. You know, the one that doesn't ask whether there is bacteria in food.

That's just unhygienic besides disgusting! Always wash your own dishes then OP.

While that works in theory, how is OP to know which dishes are the ones she washed? It's like at my mom's, I have to wash the dishes BEFORE and AFTER because my mother doesn't know how to anymore, and there is no way to tell if she hasn't used my dishes or not. The only solution might be to take the clean ones she plans to use and hide them in her room. It's what I started doing.

Good point, though she can also try to give each piece she plans to use before a meal a wash.

You should definitely volunteer to do all the cooking and cleaning!

…Are you the roommate? This was your plan all along! :o

Best take the soap out of the shower, because germs can't possibly be a thing there either. Lol

Soap in the shower is to remove dirt, sweat, and the various undesirable (eg BO producing) fungi/molds that have built up on your skin. It has nothing to do with "killing germs"

I wonder what she thinks food poisoning comes from? "Food poisons, duh!!"

Your room mate is an extreme optimist. She has apparently never eaten a contaminated or poorly prepared salad and spent agonizing hours in the loo wondering why she did not just eat dried nuts instead. Live and learn OP.

That doesn't mean that the roommate is optimistic. Sounds more ignorant and oblivious than anything really.
