Default Big roomate rant/problem

My roomate in my one room dorm is driving me nuts. He never, ever, leaves the room, all day, weekend, night, never. He only goes to class then plays video games for the rest of the day on his computer.

I work all weekend (fri-mon) and I stay at my parents house since it is very close to where the boats I work on are stationed. When I come back my room is a complete mess, his garbage, clothes, and my water bottles I keep in the fridge are everywhere. And it smells, bad, like something died in my room. He also keeps my TV on 24/7 and never watches it, he just likes to have that warm fuzzy feeling you get when the scifi channel is on.

I have told him COUNTLESS times to pick his stuff up, clean up, take the trash out, everything and he does nothing. I can only stand the smell so long before I take the trash out myself. Also, I want my own room to myself everyonce and a while, how can I get this mommas boy to get the hell outta here. Damn I gettin upset about this.

Dump the trash on him while he is sitting there playing video games. Steal the power supply from his computer while he is in class. Take a whiz on his pillow. Put his cell phone number up on a dating site with someone else picture, you know like "tall blonde seeks a guy. Any guy. Now." Take your TV home with you. Invite all your Jeep friends to your dorm room to party at 4am...

to make a point you could abuse his stuff/space. Throw snotty klenex on his keyboard, clip your gross overgrown toenails on his bed. Throw some skid mark boxers on his pillow! Will he even flich? Some people are so sick and nasty he might not even care. If he is one of those people no amount of bitching by you can cure him, or make him care, or even notice he stinks up the room. he is maybe jsut in his element when he is surrounded by stink and sci fi stuff lol

Some people are just in their own world. If he doesnt even react there is nothing you can do. If he doesnt react to you clipping toe nails on his bed he is hopeless. Just focus on the fact the school year is almost over.

I used to just push all my roomates shit he left on the floor into a big pile by his half of our giant desk. That was good enough for me. Dont spend much time you can clean a whole room by this pile method in two minutes. I used to stack it high! he barely had room between the loft and our desk. He didnt mind it was like a comforting cocoon/ junk nest. He was in his element. lol

As long as it wasnt everywhere its easy to ignore a giant shit pile as long as his nastyness was not draped on my chair, the tv, etc.

Ohh spray him with fabreeze lol that should give him a clue.

Done that, twice, with axe

I am trying to handle this like an adult, not poop on his pillow, I really do think being a complete fucking dirt ball doesnt matter to him at all. I guess I will just have to deal with this shit for a little longer.

Is your RA someone you could talk to about him? Sometimes it takes a third party to intervene. Best of luck to you.

I've had talks with my roommates about keeping our apartment clean. If I wouldn't keep up with cleaning after them, our apartment would turn into a mess. Finally one day I got done cleaning and I was royally pissed off about it. My roommate asked me what was wrong and I just flipped out and yelled at him and my other roommate and since then the apartment has looked great.

Who knows if it would work with him, but just yell at his ass, instead of asking him to do stuff.

All of the above ideas sound pretty good to me too. :tonka:

how many weeks do you have left before school ends and you two go home? 4 weeks?
Just grin and bear it, no point of getting in a bitch fest now.


I had a roomate that would make pizza's and leave them in the fridge or stove top for over a week and it would reek, so i would just walk up to his room and set it on his dresser, he would get the point and clean up his stuff. One time even i went to do that, and i opened his door and his room just smelt like ass, and he realised it too, hahaha, poor guy had no idea where the smell was coming from, so he did a major cleaning over haul and that took care of it.



and now, i live alone, i have to get on my ass once and a while now even. eveyone is not perfect.

you guys are to easy, the rest of the world suck in roommate terms. I have had room & house mates that would go as far as steal the food I bought and take my tooth brush. I have been inclined to drag their shit out in th yard and leave it and change the locks, but I was nicer then that. I would take their pillow case and scrub my arm pits with it after work and put it back on their bed, that was ussally enough to get their attention that the house stunk. I had a room mate invite a friend to stay for a couple of weeks, it turned in months. we finally shut off the heat and he left(in January) we had to turn off the phone & cable first, he was like a cockroach you couldn't get rid of him.

heres what i did?

go to whatever store that sells the 7 foot tall, 4 feet wide, 12 inch deep cheapy(i got mine for 25 a piece), "assemble-em yerself" book cases, and divide the room best you can right down the middle, all yer shit to your side, all his shit to the other...of course make sure he is looking at the cheap wall board backing. so you have some excellent shelf space..it may take some rather inventive stacking and spacing to get all your stuff in, in a way that is beneficial to yourself..this way you have a 12inch barrier to his mess..absorb your TV to your side in a way he cant see it with out laying or sitting on your pillow, then run its power thru an extension cord to one of them breaker panels with the lil red on /off switch and locate it respectively so its hidden but you can access it easily,, use this to control power to your TV, hence when you arent around he hopefully wont dig to hard to figure out how to turn it on while hes sitting naked on your pillow case watching porn..

it worked for me. he got the hint and started cleaning up and his shit tended to stay well away from my shit..so the stink wasnt to bad, as well in my "grab" for real-estate i occupied a window wall and put my bed under it so i could leave it open constantly, and he would have to crawl over my bed to close it..which would illicit an unwanted reaction from myself...

sometimes action and sacrifice speaks way louder than yelling..

just a my own bullshit experince with a messy artsy fartsy SCAD student..wanna be DJ..for what its worth..
