Here Is Your Open Thread

they once put a bag of trash in my room because they felt I should have been the one to take it out. they did not bother to start by asking.

It’s Friday. In honor of Zan’s essay this morning, let’s trade roommate horror stories.

I guess it’s been long enough now: As I replied to Zan on Twitter, an old roommate of mine used to keep a list of things she was ‘missing’ taped to the outside of her bedroom door, the implication being that I stole them. She also would take pots i had washed off of the dishrack, write “NOT CLEAN” on a post it note, and leave them on the kitchen table.

In her defense, we were 24 which is a horrible age to be, and I was probably a pretty unclean roommate.
