8 Types Of Roommates From Hell

July 14, 2021

In life, depending on your living situation, you will encounter several types of roommates. At every point in your life, you’ll most likely have to deal with roommates. As a child with your siblings, in the hostel in secondary school and university, when you move out of your parents’ house (and you get a roommate because you’re trying to save money), and the rest of your life, if you choose to get married. Living with people isn’t fun so you must come across at least one of these roommates from hell.

1.The roommate who thinks you should share everything 

There is nothing as annoying as living with this kind of person, especially the one that begs for food. Not because they don’t have but because everything you eat looks a hundred times sweeter when you eat it. You will then find yourself hiding to eat and for what?

How they beg you.

2. The compulsive cleaner

Imagine leaving your parents’ house – where you were being judged for being an occasional slob – to live with someone who IS NOT your parent but judges you for being untidy in your own space. Beat them up. You have my permission.

3. The ghost

This type of roommate isn’t exactly bad because you will have the place to yourself most times. However, if you are a worrier, you’ll just find yourself worrying if they are alive or not. Also, if something ever happens to you, you can’t rely on them to show up.

4. The loud roommate

This type of roommate delights in disturbing your peace. They play music by 3 a.m. and somehow wash plates so loud the whole street can hear them. If you like things quiet,living with this type of person is exhausting.

Them for no reason

5. The stingy roommate

If you are a broke person, this is the worst person to live with. They measure everything from their milk to their sugar. No such thing as splitting costs because they do not like to share. They probably have post-it notes with their name on every item in the fridge that belongs to them. On the rare occasion theat they share, you’ll wonder if the world is ending.

6. The roommate that always has people over

They have no respect for your shared space so their friends won’t either. Imagine coming home after a long day to meet people you don’t know in your home. The ghetto for real.

7. The spiritual roommate

If you don’t have the same views with this type of roommate, you are in for a long drive to hell. You will be constantly preached to, or worse judged for everything you do. If that’s not hell, I don’t know what is. 

8. Children

Of all the roommates in the world, these are by far the worst.. First of all, society has gone past the need for more human beings so please stop making them. All they do is spend your money, eat your food, and cry. Why would you want that?
