roommate etiquette

i have come to the realization today that my roommates girl stays here during the day whenever she pleases. everyone else works and today is my first day of unemployment, so you can imagine the instant i had on display when i walked downstairs and saw her shoes were here.

my roomate and I have had this discussion before about having her over. i said she was over too much (sometimes 3 nights in a row), and he said he can't just tell her "no". there's really nothing even going on between them, it's just a sympathy thing and it's getting in the way of my unemployment yoga.

do i step to the girl, try to reinforce it with my roommate, or shut my yap?

I PAY TO LIVE HERE!!!!

    Get her to do stuff around the house. Make her goto the store for food and beer. See how she responds to that. If you want to get rid of her. It's time to become a slob. Don't flush after you take a dump. Stuff like that. Or you could ask her to beat it. Tell her she's interfering with your slacking.

    this is my philosophy, but i've never had a steady girl ( )

    dudes w/wifeys, this is a legit rule, non?

    I love living with people. So long as they respect our place and I can get a good nights sleep I say the more the merrier. I know not all people share that opinion. If the situation were flipped would you want your boy telling you your girl was over too much? Whatever you do, don't step to the girl. You may not want her there all the time but don't make her feel unwelcomed.

    it shouldn't be an issue of being over too much,
    as long as ol' girl has her own residence.
    but ol' girl is there and his roommate isn't.
    that is not cool.
    occasionally sleeping in is one thing,
    reclining on the sofa while her dude
    isn't even around is another.

    Is she just hanging out in his room asleep? Or is she hanging out on the couch eating popcorn watching her stories? Need more info plaese. So far, I agree with Sween. Especially if he is with her for sympathy's sake.

    the thing about this is, we're all musicians. so lady love is chilling in her bedroom with the door locked thinking i'm none the wiser and it's no biggie. but i know she's here and now i can't go down to the basement, light one up and rip off a quick peart solo because girlie would catch feelings fer sher. a few times when songs were being created she sat down in the living room adjacent and started watching tv like it was no big deal. totally distracting tho.


  • you pay rent.
    she doesn't.
    cygnus x-1 yer fuckin' heart out.

    if this is the general consensus, OK then. but what do i do about it? the girl is a legitimate "princess", and believes the world revolves around her. my roommate is totally under her sympathy spell. do i really have to scare her away?

    kill her

    Tap it

    Kick her out.


    in any order as long as kicking her out is last





















    But for real. Same situation I had on my hands. I moved out.

    She didnt have a job and neither did I. I would get up in the AM and Watch porn in my boxers for about 3 hours. I figured that would be enough to send this girl away. NOPE.

    She started watchin porn with me everyday. For my birthday she bought me a book that lists hundreds of porn movies from the 70's and 80's and gives little write ups about them.

    I had to move out.


    tap it first though son.

    it depends on 3 things

    a. how many hit points the princess has



    b. what level spell your roommate is under






    c. How many rolls and with which die will you get to increase your stamina?

    i will consider.


    seriously tho, i just got back from the PO across the street and i walk in and shes sprawled out in the living room, HGTV in full effect. now i can't feel comfortable doing anything downstairs. this shit has gone too far. she doesn't even have a ride so i know she's not leaving any time soon.

    this is seriously out of control.

    Me and my girl were unemployed at the same time for most of this past year. I would hang at her place all the time. There were times she had to duck to job hunt or whatever and I stayed around. I hated that though, because my girl's roommate's dude would still be in the place (she had a job). That dude had no job and pretty creepy. Cat was like 35, professing to be 28. The worst was when my girl would be out and I'd stick around, they would both be there and decide to have sex. My girl's roommate was a wilderbeast, so the imagery makes my brain hurt.

    Anyway, unless you're cool with your roommate's signif and you don't see the point in getting cool, then yeah... he's/she's got to go.

    I can hang with a cool chick all day though, as long as she can make a mean pancake or omelette.

    Walk around the house with a full on sweatpant boner, or just in your boxers or tighty's.

    Talk to her while it's kicking, look her straight in the eyes.

    Whatever happens you'll be happier.

    when i first bought my house, back in july of 1999, i had an old friend move in with me to rent out my downstairs room. things were really cool for the first two years, while we dated a bunch of different girls, started a couple bands, smoked a million cigarettes, etc. then, while i was away for a weekend, i came home to him moving a bunch of his new girlfriend's (month and a half) shit into the basement... when i asked him what up? he came at me all defensive, like "she's in a really bad situation where she is, and it's my responsibility to help her... for just a few months." i thought about it for a while, and figured it wouldn't be so bad with her paying some of the rent and bills, so i said sure. the very next morning, i came downstairs in my boxers to take my morning shower, and she was sitting on the couch. i said hi, or whatever but not much more was said between us. that night, my buddy said that we needed to talk. he said that his girlfriend found it completely unacceptable that i walk around the house in my underwear, and that i'd need to cover myself up in her presence. !!!? i then reminded him that it was my mortgage, and he and his girl were simply renters. he and i ended up wrestling in the front yard for about 20min, and then he said they were moving out. then they changed their minds and wanted to stay... until she got preggers and moved into her mom's house. six months after the baby was born, she left him for an army guy who ended up picking my friend up by his throat in an attempt to dissuade him from coming around again. i always thought that she fucking sucked, plus his daughter looks like E.T.
