Boy oh boy is this a thread I’ve been waiting forever for.
One of my roommates in college is genuinely one of the worst people I’ve ever had the displeasure of knowing.
Here’s an abbreviated list of grievances:
- Constantly talked about our mutual roommate’s girlfriend and how much better she and him would be together, in front of my other roommate.
- Talking about money as if it was nothing because his parents paid all his bills. Very much like Lucille Bluth’s “How much could a banana cost? $10?”
- Getting onto my laptop while I was away to read a script I was writing and then criticizing it in front of all our friends.
- Generally being an unprofessional jerk to underclassmen during a video shoot we were all doing and then starting a witch hunt when he found out that someone complained to the department heads about him.
These last three are very messed up so I’ll throw some warnings before each one:
CW: non-consensual drinking
This roommate was a big drinker and pot head and kept trying to get me to drink with them. I was 20 and extremely not interested in alcohol or drugs for some private reasons that he ignored leading to many an argument about me “missing out.” This culminated in him handing me drink at a party, telling me it was Pepsi and taking a sip to taste Pepsi and Vodka and I spit it out dumped it in the sink and left. Until the last day that I spoke to him, he maintains he didn’t do anything wrong there.
CW: Manipulating an impaired person
This roommate once hounded two of our female friends at a party to make out with each other while they were both extremely drunk and they did. He then showed them the video the next day which led to one of them crying and begging him to delete it, which he didn’t do.
This roommate was dating a woman whose father had just committed suicide. About two weeks later he broke up with her because he “was sick of hearing about her dad.” I still get sick to my stomach sometimes thinking about his cold dismissal of his girlfriend’s pain.
