Default Roomate Rant

Ok so those who room with someone else know what I am talking about to an extent. I have what they call a "religious" roommate. Lets just call him "X". I don't want to specify which religion cause I don't want this thread to become a religious debate.

Anyways I've been X's roommate for about 6 months now ever since school started this year. The dude gets on my ****in nerves. He tries to be all religious and **** in front of me and my other roommate even though we both clearly know he isn't really that good of a person. X goes around the house literally lecturing us ever damn second on the correct way of "living life". For example he would lecture us on not to watch porn, smoke weed, curse and all the usual bull****. The ironic thing is me and my roommate both know he does the exact same **** when we are not there (don't ask how, we just know). The guy is a douche bag in real life and stingy and cheap as hell. Every quality about the guy makes me want to reverse time and not make the mistake of having him as a roommate. The other thing that pisses me off is whenever he wants something done his way, all other opinions and perspectives go out the window. We have to have the AC on only when he wants, we can open the blinds only when he wants, everyone must wear headphones when listening to music, we can only turn on and off lights when he wants etc. Another thing is he tries to justify **** with religion whenever he wants to do something that clearly goes against his religion. However whenever me and my other roommate do it he says its wrong. WHAT DO I DO ISH?

well, you should really talk to him about this. if he won't budge or take some sort of criticism then it's about time you look for a new roommate - letting one guy ruin your fun and basically cause you to have a bad time whenever you're around him is silly. but honestly, if you did talk to him, he seems (from what i've read) like the kind of guy who still wouldn't change, so honestly, i just suggest kicking him from the crew and finding a new roommate.

good luck!

he sounds like a wanker.

why do you take his sh*t?

i'd tell him nicely to chill with the preaching and if that doesn't work i'd get nasty with him (start by peeing in his mouth wash).

i definitely would not allow him to preach, tell me what do, all of the things you described he regularly does.

lol you guys outnumber him 2-1 how does he take advantage of you so easily?

Honestly if you can, you should try to get rid of him if he is unwilling to compromise.

Religious idiots depend on you thinking its "ungodly" for you to tell them to shut up.

i don't care how busy i was if i had some super obnoxious roommate (like yours) i'd get him the f*ck out of there and i would not be cool about it for a second.

i'd make him not want to live there anymore.

I lived with some annoying fukcs in College too. Just move out, or move him out next semester.

I had a roommate my 4th year (only for about 3 months) in College that wouldn't do dishes because the he said the soap dried out his hands. I had to teach this dude how to do his own laundry, and even make a sandwhich (yes, he couldn't figure out how to combine the components of a sandwhich)... and this guy was fukcin 21 years old, and close to graduating College.

I have to agree with this too (minus the pee in the mouthwash part hah). I would have already put this dude in his place quick. I actually can't stand people who constantly push their beliefs on me.

^^^

yeah that word right there...

ask him if he wants to...nicely


the "music head phone" thing can be an ordeal...

because when i am relaxing at home I would get pissed if I had a room mate that constantly blasted his music...so I can see where he is coming from on some parts...but he has to be willing to "compromise"...

Friday nights = no music allowed

Saturday nights = blast away

ect...with everthing else

as far as the religious stuff goes you should just say "look buddy, I smoke, I drink, I cuss, I sin, and that is just how it is...I'm sorry you don't like the life I live but it isn't going to change anytime soon"...

Just tell him to stfu. My sophomore year of college I had 4 extremely religious roommates. We had these things called quads, sort of a tiny, tiny on-campus apartment. Three single rooms, a double, bath, and a little shared living room. I registered literally the day before classes, and these quarters are pretty sought after (since it's where the sororities were located, they didn't get houses), but I wasn't about to live on the 14th floor of an unconditioned non-smoking dorm, so I took what I could get. They encouraged me to go to church with them, their prayer groups, bible study, all that, for the first couple weeks. Not in an overbearing way, they were laid back about it. I just let them know I wasn't interested and if they'd please no longer ask me, and they did, easy as that. Then I moved off campus 2nd semester.
