Unreliable Roomates >:O

So, a bit of a background story.

A college friend of mine, lets call her, Katie..calls me back in February and decides she's going to move back to Providence because she hates it back in her hometown (somewhere in PA). She had heard our other roomate was leaving in the next few weeks and asked about our open spot. So naturally, wanting to fill the spot..and keep our rent at the same amount, we say yes. March comes around, she moves in, all is good.

She was basically getting by from all the money she had saved over the time she worked when she was back in PA. So from March, until now..she decided that she didn't want to get a job, because she wasn't the "kind of person" to work forty hours a week. Anyhow, I kind of brushed it off and assumed that when the time came, she would step into action and start looking for a job. Naturally, I dont have access to her bank account so I don't know just how broke she is..

So today, she comes into my room and tells me that my landlord, JUST cashed her check for last month's rent. Apparently she doesn't know how to balance her checkbook, and forgot to factor that extra $300 into her plans. So now, rent is due August 6th and she has $5 to her name. WELL DONE

It amazes me how someone of her knowledge level could completely ignore the need for money to survive in this world. I mean , she's a smart person. She graduated a year before me with a bachelors Marketing degree. Anyhow, we'll see what happens. She's got a few applications out to Starbucks and CVS, which is another mystery to me..considering she has a degree..

On that note, post your unreliable roomate stories!

Re: Unreliable Roomates >:O

Shitty deal, I got a comical one for you to lighten up the mood.

Right out of highschool I was rooming with 2 friends, Kelsey and Mike, the 3 of us sharing an apartment condo. We drank constantly, and basically every night there was a small gathering in our apartment. Mike had no vehicle, no license, and he rode his bicycle to work every day, he was a gas jockey, so obviously he didn't make much coin, constantly had to borrow money for beer or he couldn't afford the rent and the lifestyle we had become accustomed to.

Now for a little more background on how crazy/stupid he is, this is a little story I have told once or twice on the forum before definitely once in the old RCT. One night (probably a tuesday or wednesday) we had a few girls at our place and we were all drinking. And we had this bottle of 151 (75% alcohol for those that don't know what "proof" means). The 3 of us (meaning me Kelsey, and Crazy Mike) decided we were gonna do a little scientific experimentation on ourselves to figure out what the most sensitive areas of the male body are. Basically the rules of the game are we all take some 151 get a good amount on both hands and then apply the liquid to various areas of our bodies, and we were gonna do the 5 point star....so we start with the armpits, and that burned pretty good. Then we apply some to the nipples which was a little worse yet and I didn't want anything to do with the point on the star (nut sack), so me and Kelsey quit at this point. But after a few minutes Mike gets a shitload of 151 on his one hand...yells out "5 POINT STAR BOYS!!!" puts his hand down the BACK of his pants in a vain attempt to get the 151 on his nuts without exposing himself...well, on his way out I guess he dragged his hand right up his ass crack and got some inside his o-ring, which almost immediately triggered him screaming, and running towards the bathroom while ripping off clothing on the way there....he didnt even shut the door in the bathroom and jumps in the shower and started singing a song so loud we could all hear it in the living room "I just burnt my o-ring of fire, I go down, down, the bacardi goes higher, and it burns, burns, burn,s my o-ring of fire, my o-ring of fire!"

So anyway hopefully by now you have come to a conclusion that he is an idiot (and possibly that I am also an idiot, just to a lesser degree). Fast forward a few months from here and we are all going seperate ways....well Mike has been sleeping on the sofa in the living room all this time and it belongs to Kelsey. Mike is gonna be moving into another mutual friends place his name is Jess, so Mike buys the sofa off Kelsey, and he buys my old bed from me, some shitty old wooden thing thats no longer good anymore due to some epic vag poundings that occurred during my stay in that apartment. So anyway, as mentioned earlier Mike has no vehicle, but he has me and a buddy coming over with a truck to help him move this stuff....not being one to wait Mike decides he will bring down my bed from the 3rd floor down to the main level all by himself and the elevator was not working at the time. So he drags it while its all still assembled instead of taking it apart or waiting for help. Keep in mind he gave me $150 for this POS. Well he manages to get it outside and lean it against a wall on the outside of the building while he goes back outside, but there was some strong winds that day and after the vibrations of being dragged down 3 flights of stairs and being blown over in in the wind, this already shitty bed has been completely destroyed and is now useless. Meanwhile, as me and buddy show up with the truck Mike is upstairs deciding how to get the sofa downstairs which btw he bought for about $400....and because the bed was hard to move this was gonna be even worse.....so he drags it out to our balcony and throws it over the edge down onto the lawn below (knocking some potted plants off the neighbours balcony below in the process....about 15 seconds after the automatic sprinklers come on and start soaking the shit out of this sofa (chesterfield if you are hardcore american). Well me and buddy are laughing so hard downstairs after watching this sofa plummet to its doom, but we wouldnt help Mike get it too the truck because we didnt wanna get wet, so he drags it through a muddy field getting himself and the sofa dirty as shit and the 3 of us take it over to Jess' place. Mike is never one to plan ahead so of course he hasnt measured the small opening in the basement and we watched him struggle with it trying to get it downstairs....again not helping because we are laughing to hard and didnt wanna get dirty so we started drinking. Eventually Mike gave up and started drinking as well....so Jess comes home after being on duty in the oil patch for 3 weeks only to see this shitty, broken, smelly, dirty sofa STUCK in the stairwell, and it just will not budge at all.....we watched him hack it apart with an axe for about 20 minutes and we had ourselves a good ole fashioned bon fire in the back yard...so he was out $550 for absolutely nothing. Good times.

Re: Unreliable Roomates >:O

I personally have never had a roommate that's been too bad, but I read this the other day and I was laughing my ass off. It's a couple of pages and kinda long, but well worth the read.
