Has anybody else had to suffer the misfortune of dealing with 'that housemate' in houseshares (student or otherwise) who has any strange and/or disgusting habits?

Some fairly common ones I can claim include the token 'Guy who never leaves his room' and 'person who never tidies up after themselves'. Generic yes, but the struggle ha real (or whatever it is the homos are saying these days).

WARNING: If you can't think of who the one is in your house, it's probably you!

Yes. Refer to every post i made here between Sept 2012 and July 2013.

He wasn't even "horrible", in fact he was lovely. He just had a penchant for pissing on the bathroom floor, clogging up the bath with his ~hair~, being a nuisance with his wild & wacky cooking, banging on my bedroom door at 1am to tell me he was home, stinking of alcohol, and inviting his MUM to live with us in our final 2 weeks.

I had one that spoke on the phone/skype ALL. THE. TIME... in ITALIAN. Super annoying. But at least he cleaned up after himself.

My housemates have labelled me as the one who stays in his room; I'd rather sit in my room instead of being forced to watch Come Dine With Me and Eastenders? laugh.gif

Last year in halls I had the most disgusting flatmates and can't even begin to think of the state of their housing this year with no cleaners....

I know dont understand whats wrong with relaxing in your room where you can do & watch what you want instead of making sure its ok that your watching such and such and even when everyone is happy with what you want to watch if they dont watch it you always feel they are judging you for liking it lol.

Also cant fathom people who cant clean up after themselves - just pure selfishness!

This, this and more this. I don't see the point in spending every night with housemates as well when you have weekends to spend time with them?

Another thing is the floor, if you drop something pick it up instead of leaving it to go all disgusting and sticky and eww sick2.gif

My new set of flatmates I'm still getting to know (most of us are in advanced years and all on different courses so there aren't huge chances for socialising) but there's one who I've only crossed paths with once so I guess that's the 'stay in room OR out all day & night' type of flatmate. Which I don't mind too much, he's not bothering anyone and I stay in my room a lot of the time too so I'm hardly a saint in that respect.

Thankfully I've never yet shared a house with someone who doesn't clean up or is anti-social, it takes quite a lot for me to get annoyed so it'll probably and hopefully stay that way.

So I've generally been lucky when I was at University.

It was only in my third year when we had bad housemates. There was the one girl who just avoided us completely, literally as soon as we had left the iamspamspamamicooking she would come in. And then there was another girl who would Skype home at ridiculous times to her parents, and she had the loudest voice in the world.

Don't think I could ever flat/house share with people that I don't know beforehand anymore though.. I was lucky to live with amazing people 90% of the time at University, but I'm sure my lucky would run out in the real world.

I'll hold my hand up to being one of those lazy people that doesn't clean up straight away biggrin.gif Used to hate washing up after meals!

My worst experience was between March and August this year. I posted these things one housemate did during Teams and bare in mind this was just 6 weeks after the creep moved in.


1) not locking the front door at night.
2) leaving lights on at night here, there and everywhere
3) turning the dining room table into a nonsensical mess of paper
4) leaving random tea bags on dining room chairs
5) leaving computers, iPads, wallets everywhere. I could technically steal from him
6) watches tv late and loud
7) very heavy footed on the stairs, constantly going up and down and late at night too
8) using my printer cable without asking
9) using my shampoo and other housemates razor blades (our things are no longer left in the bathroom because of this)
10) pissing on the toilet seat and not cleaning it up
11) not flushing the toilet even after a no.2
12) underwear left on the bathroom floor (y-fronts no less)
13) communal hand towels disappear into his room and then reappear a few days later unwashed.
14) dishes are left out and not placed in dishwasher even when he goes away for a weekend
15) he is messy in the iamspamspamamiand never cleans up
16) he randomly goes to sit in his car
17) he is an unsociable f***

Me and the others were living blissfully before he moved in. We would confront him about three things and he was extremely defensive and would deny things when we knew as fact he was responsible. He would constantly stare at you if you were in the same room. He smashed a bathroom mirror I bought just by getting out the shower. He replaced it 2 months later after denying it constantly even though I heard him do it. He once took my clothes out of the washing machine midcycle so he could wash 2 pairs of underwear and a pair of socks. My clothes were soaking wet and I was fuming.

We spoke to our landlord but nothing was done. We all threatened to leave and in the end that's what we did. The three of us now live alone because we don't want to take a chance on sharing again. I don't know if anyone has moved in since then but the house will be in a shocking state since we couldn't keep cleaning it once we'd left. It's hard to imagine it would appeal to anyone.

Besides, living alone is IMMENSE.

We would have done but there were other factors. One of them getting his girlfriend pregnant being one.

I guess, after that awful experience, it's because I get to do what I want and have my place how I want it. It's only a small flat but it's all I need right now. It's not really depressing. Lots of my friends live in the same village, the nearest pub is a stones throw away and my family live in the next village. I like my own space regardless but after 6 months feeling incredibly uncomfortable with my living arrangements, it's a a breath of fresh air to be alone.

My 'housemate' has apparently complained about the way I left the bathroom last weekend..

Well excuse me, I'm not the one who keeps blocking the toilet bowl up with absolutely loads of toilet paper or keeps leaving the lid up for no apparent reason (we're not even on about a man here) mellow.gif

Just spent nigh-on three hours cleaning the house (mostly the iamspamspamami..) as I have to do every weekend. I work too much during the week to clean up after everyone, and my god the state it gets into by Saturday without me running about cleaning up!!

This is the week AFTER they said 'let's clean up after ourselves straight after eating'.

Ok, I said, and started washing up every 2nd day. I eat out for breakfast/ dinner 1, so I only really eat once a day in here, maybe twice with cereal but I wash that instantly. Then the next thing I know, after washing the iamspamspamami last Sat, the dirty plates started coming. And by Thursday I could literally not use the sinks or the benches.

One is a hippy with really long hair who doesn't wash it. He whipped me with it a few times when stood next to me the other day sick2.gif And it gets EVERYWHERE trapped on plates, which I have to clean btw, trapped around my feet, puke.gif and it just literally makes me feel sick to think about it. It is really greasy btw. He doesn't wash his stuff and when he does I wish he didn't as he rinses them with cold water, which means every time I get something out (unless I know I've washed it, and usually I have to be fair), I have to re-wash it before use!

I went to mop the floors today, poured the water somebody had left in for who knows how long out the bucket and ... the bathroom still smells. It REEKED and was shit-brown colour with black things in it. I'm steeping it now with water and water disinfectant.

I go to bed early and they don't. They have free time during the week, I don't.

Speaking of going early, last Saturday night, they brought a party round, plugged in the speakers (after about 5 minutes of trying and the usual screechy speaker noise),with many in the party opening my door and walking in! Then walking back out. I soon locked it.

Soo yeaaah.

T Boy's flatmate sounds HORRENDOUS!

Oh, also one of them was eating my porridge, which I would've known anywhere from the fact there was less in the box ahahaha, if he hadn't left me the dirty bowls to clean up too for good measure ...

Oh, and the ONE thing I asked for, to clean the oven top? Well, I'll be doing it today as well. This is after they pour oil all over the top of it too.

I share a flat with 7 lads (John's idea of heaven). 6 of them are rather great though so I'm not complaining. The other one however is horrific. He's from France (and he's gay). He has horrific hygiene, horrific manners, he uses all my plates / food without asking and doesn't clean up. He has also moved in his other friend who's French into the flat (he's also gay) and the things that's heard at the early one in the morning sad.gif He put a dirty bannana on my xBox 360 and he wears vests.
