Today, my new roommate woke me up at noon to bitch about my "selfish sleeping habits" and how they ruin her ability to invite anyone over. I work the graveyard shift at the hospital. FML

Take your roommate to the graveyard & bury her.

That's so rude of her, not everyone is on the same sleep schedule.

Simple fix. Wake her up mid sleep and bitch about something irrelevant. That'll keep her away

Kick her ass out and get a new roommate that understands the fact you work at night

18: I like your sarcasm! :)

Some people are Inconsiderate bitchhes.

78 - Except girls. We don't do that stuff...

100 that does make me wonder because I know that when a bunch of women live together their monthly visitor will that the only thing that will sync??????!?

87: I can't stop looking at your stomach. I've forgotten what I'm even doing.

Then the prank of flushing all the school toilets at the same time wouldn't be as fun.

Imagine... You may call me a dreamer... Dammit I forgot the lyrics and I've run out of edit time!

We're gonna need a lot more toilets if we all sync up taking a shit..

They're? Is the room-mate schizophrenic?

Schizophrenia is not the same as Dissociative Identity Disorder. Why can't people get it, already? DID is the condition formerly known as multiple personality. Schizophrenia is a condition characterized by seeing, hearing, or otherwise sensing things that do not actually take place (aka delusions).

Although I get the comment on "They're". It's "he/she" if you don't know a third party's sex.

2. - You guys don't know how to read the FML apparently...,

28 - Depends on if you're using APA, Chicago Manual, MLA, etc. Every organization has their own rules regarding gender unknowns.

I apologize if I didn't use "they're" appropriately. I wasn't aware that it was that big of an issue. That is all.

22- do you watch untied states of Tara?

Inheritance 10

Considering OP is female we can only assume her roommate is a she. Since schools don't allow co-ed.

Pretty_Pink_Lady 10

A lot of people have roommates just to save money or have someone to live with. OP isn't necessarily in school.

71, I prefer the "Tied States of Tara" personally. I find that show to be much kinkier.

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

No way bro! I had no idea that's what graveyard shift meant!! .... -_-

wait, so they don't have nurses at graveyards?!?!


Kick that bitch out as soon as you can! Your house your rules unless you don't own the home.

ByronJess 17

Except if it's a lease that has both of their names on it, she legally can't just kick her out.

How does she not understand? You should find a new roommate as soon as possible.

To be fair it would suck to not be able to make noise during the day time or early evening because your roommate was asleep whenever you were awake.

-67 Well, it doesn't seem that OP's room mate is very "considerate" seeing as how she woke up OP, just to yell at her instead of waiting until she woke up and talked to her in a civil manner.

Ppl who work graveyard shifts tend to tell roommates b4 they move in together. That bitch just sounds like a moron. U don't wake someone up like that n if u have a problem with it grow up n move like the OP who is probably working her ass off n needs her sleep.

How rude of you to be working at a place that saves lives..if you can Schedule them for a colonoscopy

How are people disliking this comment?? Haha

Ik that's what I was thinking.. Give it five minutes and it will happen to this one to

It would mainly be people that don't get sarcasm.. and trolls.

142, Exactly. Sarcasm is very hard to read. On a aide note, thanks Original Poster for working the graveyard shift at hospitals. You guys are my favorite when I'm in the hospital :-).

Roommates are always lame (some), he should look for a new place to stay! Not your fault OP.

Wow your first sentence totally didn't make sense (a little). (:

I know I'm stating the obvious, but your roommate is being a bitch. She needs to understand that since you pay your part, you are entitled to the hours of your choosing. If she can't get the point, I'd advise you to find a new roommate. Basically, what I'm saying is, FYL for having an evil roommate. I've been in that situation too, and it sucks!!

Her roommate ALSO has the hours of her choosing. If OP works from 0AM to 8AM, as I think she does, she could either sleep from 8AM to 4PM or from 4PM to 0AM. Why should someone else change their whole life if they are living a normal life. If her roommate would be hosting parties all the time I could understand, but she can't even invite someone over!

I highly doubt OP chose to work these hours. I know how hard it was for my stepdad to sleep during the day.

I'm not saying OP chose those hours, but if she sleeps right after work, her roommate can still invite people over in the evening, cause I presume her roommate has work/college during those hours. And sleep during the day becomes a lot easier with dark curtains (perhaps earplugs). I'm in college and during holidays I sometimes sleep from 1PM to 11PM. I know my sleeping rhythm is of and I won't complain if I get woken up by my roommate. Also I'm just saying, there's a difference between having people over and throwing a party.

If OP is like any normal person, she probably has other things to do (eat, do laundry, pay bills, etc.) during the time she winds down after work. Also, hospital employment usually entails some kind of constant studying. I understand why OP is set in her schedule, but I also see your point. :)

That's ridiculous, would you go to bed immediately after work at 5 pm? I doubt it. If the roommate went to bed after she got off work, their schedules would be more in synch according to your logic. You obviously have never worked graveyard, just like any job, your mind and body needs to wind down for a little bit before bed. I'm sure the roommate (and you) would be upset if the OP brought home a gaggle of people to party 6 am. It's the same situation, learn empathy and simple logic.

I've never had a fulltime job since I'm still in college, but I have had times where I went straight to bed as soon as I got home after a part-time job or classes.

Also, they main reason people don't go to sleep at 5PM is because it's still light outside. If you work a graveyard shift it's gonna be light outside at whatever time you go to sleep.

Most people need time to wind down after work, even if you don't. My boyfriend works a twelve hour night shift, 6 pm to 6 am, and he still takes an hour or two most of the time to wind down before he can go to sleep. OP pays half the rent and is entitled to relax for a little bit before going to sleep. Maybe the roommate should have people over when op is at work or after op wake up. Furthermore, if the roommate was planning on being reasonably quiet with her guests, having people over wouldn't be a problem.

Glidah - you've never had a full- time job so your opinion can't count for shit on this topic. I work from 6pm to 6am and I don't fall asleep till around 8:30 am (yeah it takes time getting home from your job too) even that is because I have to squeeze in my 7-8 hour sleep so that I'm not tired when heading to work at 4:30pm (omg yes commuting time again)...quite simply OP's room-mate is a twat, and if she's bothered about waking her up then it's partying for certain. My room- mates has friends over all the time when I'm asleep, never bothers me and they're a bunch of stoners too

:) sorry, my last comment was meant for someone else!!!
