    I currently live with two friends (both guys) and they are driving me fuckin nuts!!!! First off the biggest thing that pisses me off is that they dont feel the need to clean up after themself, they leave bowls and plates and other shit sittin around with food sometimes still in it. Dishes are hardly washed by them, i have to wash them everytime, and then clothes....when they finish with them in the dryer sometimes they just leave them on top. In the bathroom they leave wash rags laying around in the shower and the rug is sometimes sopping wet because they dont dry their feet before stepping out of the shower. And the sink and toilet sometimes are apalling, and i clean it every fuckin time! I have never been one to be neat but come on this is rediculous. Last night one of them decided to go play basketball in the rain with some others and they just waltz on in teh house soaking wet and walking around like it aint nothing. WTF DO I DO!?!?! Ive already tried talking to them but that doesnt do shit!

    Yeah I would move out if it's that bad.
    Or personally, I would talk to them about it. Open communication.

    Sounds just like my one roomate i have 3 in total but 2 of them are never around...
    the one that is super messiy just turned 20 and thinks hes mr right about everything
    i have started to tune him out and all that I never come home now unless to shower or sleepi don't really even talk to him when i am home when he asks why i tell him plain out just go do the dishes or clean up i'll tell you after.
    anyways i don;t really have any advice to give becaus eI don't know what to do myself i just figured I would let you know your not alone with the annoying roommates thing.
    good luck!

    honestly, i suggest doing what we did.. hire a maid.. an under the table "maid" is really pretty affordable. We pay ours $14 an hour, and thats more then she asked for. figure it takes her two hours to clean the house, split up, thats 10$ a week to not have to worry about it.

    by the way, you totally screwed yourself by cleaning up after them. now they know its easier to listen to you bitch then to clean up after themselves. you have to make it more of a pain in the ass then its worth. this means you cant be a pansy. dont put the dirty dishes they leave in the living room in the sink, leave them on the offending roomates bed. yes, they are gonna be mad, but unless you do something, you are gonna be stuck playing their mother.

    the only solution at this point is to move out

    Sounds like classic repressed homosexual urges.

    i was in a similar situation about 6 months ago.
    i got to the point where i was seriously ready to hurt one of them.

    what i did was find the one thing that really got to them and did it over and over and over. for instance, one of my roommates absolutely hated indie music, so i would blare it as loud as possible. he would get pissy, so as soon as he would ask me to shut it off, i'd strike a bargain with him. it usually worked.

    or just start refusing to pay bills or something. i dunno.

    i hope it works out for you though :)
