If your roommates hate you, you’re in deep shit. Which is why as the sweethearts we are, we’ve decided to tell you how to make sure this never happens to you.
Lay their beds
Sometimes, your roommates are late for lectures, or just too tired to lay their beds. Being the nice person you are, you should do it for them. If they don’t already like you, trust us, they’ll love you after this.
Share your allowance with them
God would love you for being a cheerful giver, but do you know who’d love you more? Your roommates.
Do their assignments for them
Because you’re selfless, and you want your roommates to like you, after doing your assignments, ask if they have any assignments you can help them with.
Cook for them
Everyone loves free food. Your roommates would adore and kill you with hugs if you cook for them. When you come back from your classes, head straight to the kitchen, whip up a nice meal, and serve it to them on a platter.
Fetch water for them
We all know how Nigerian school hostels are; sometimes, the taps don’t run. Go out of your way by making sure your roommates’ buckets are always filled. How you’ll do it, we don’t, but just imagine the look on their faces when they see you’ve filled their buckets for them when they wake up in the morning.
Don’t stay in the room
Distance makes the heart grow fonder. If your roommates don’t see you every day, they might miss you and be nice to you when they finally return. So please, don’t spend too much time in your room.
Don’t touch their stuff
People hate nothing more than when you touch their stuff, so please, respect yourself, and leave their property alone.
Be funny, but not too funny
Everybody loves a clown, but let’s be honest, it gets to a point where it’s just tiring. What we’re trying to say is, to know when to shut up and stop being funny.
Don’t be too loud
Noisemakers are annoying because why are they always shouting? Just be calm, and your roommates will instantly love you — except you live with agberos sha.
