As college students we all have one thing in common, we have all had or have known someone that had a nightmare of a roommate. I’m not talking about someone that was a little messy or that accidentally locked you out. I’m talking about the disgusting, obnoxious people that make you wish that you never left your parents house.
These are, in my opinion, the top 10 worst types of college roommates.
You thought your uncle who liked to have a few drinks was too much to handle at family gatherings, until you moved in with this guy. He always leaves beer cans and liquor bottles everywhere and refuses to clean, making the entire dorm room/apartment smell like alcohol.
The Kid Stuck in High School
By the time we get to college, most of us have left high school behind in hopes that we can move on to better things. Unfortunately, this kid hasn’t left high school and won’t let you forget. He/she will realize in time that no one cares about how many “crazy” nights they had or how they were the most popular kid in school.
Not just the person that is always trying to cheat in some way, but the person that is always trying to cheat off of you. Every once in a while it doesn’t matter if they copy your homework but when it’s every night it can get old. Fast.
You move in and begin to notice that over time you are missing quite a few things. Then you realize that your roommate is starting to get a lot of new things that look like things that you used to own. The worst part is no matter what you do, they never stop.
Mr./Ms. In Your Face
Just because you get stuck in a dorm with someone does not mean that you two are going to be best friends. Too bad some people don’t understand this and will pretend like you are lifelong friends. At first it’s fun because you have someone to hang out with, but after a while you start to figure out ways to leave without them tagging along.
The Depressed Art Major
This is not referring to all art majors because in my experience most of them are cool. I’m talking about that guy/girl that always seems to be tragically upset about something and covers the room in depressing artwork.
The Life of the Party
Everywhere this person goes there is a party that follows. You aren’t sure how he/she is always going nonstop, but you do know one thing – you want them to take the party anywhere but your apartment. Too bad your dorm room/apartment is now the place to party. Every night.
The College Harlot
Your roommate has been single for a while, but there is always someone doing the walk of shame out of your dorm room/apartment every morning. It wouldn’t bother you too much if they didn’t keep you awake all night, and you didn’t have to check to make sure some strange guy/girl wasn’t outside of your room before leaving.
The Drug Dealer
Depending on what you like to do in your spare time, having someone with connections around all of the time could be a good thing. But not these kind of connections. Few people are okay with the constant sketchy people in their apartment indulging in illegal activities at all hours.
Everyone has their messy habits, but most people confine them to their bedroom. This person leaves a mess in their wake no matter where they go, and you are always stuck cleaning it up.
Here’s hoping you aren’t stuck with one of these types this year. Are there any bad roommates you would add to this list? Let us know in the comments.
