i am the queen of having jerkoffs for roommates. oh lord.
one of my roommates before had a cat that didn't understand the concept of a litter box and also thought the tops of my records were a scratching post. i hated that cat so much. i would shut the door of my room, but my roommate always would go in there and borrow clothes and not shut the door back again, so the cat could still come in. the worst was when i got a brand new down comforter for christmas and the cat took a massive shit in the middle of my bed. i came really close to animal abuse a couple of times. when we got in a fight one night, she came into my room and took the needle to my record player and scratched it across one of my records that she didn't like, but i loved. it was pretty much completely fucked - both the record and the record player needle. she also threw one of my glass vases across my room and shattered it and blamed it on the cat, saying it knocked it off the shelf. riiiiight. that's why it was all the way across the room from where it was and completely shattered and there was a mark on the wall. she hid the mlgw bill from me so she wouldn't have to pay it. it was in my name and i was wondering why i hadn't gotten a bill for a couple of months. she lied to me about time warner too and asked for money for it until one day it was turned off for nonpayment (that was in her name). she didn't pay the landlord rent twice, even though i did. we got evicted, but fortunately my name wasn't on the lease at all.
another roommate in cincinnati that i had at one point went fucking nuts on speed and quit her job as a legal secretary in order to hang out with some of her old punk rock squatter friends who she let live in our house. there was even a squatter kid living in our backyard in a tent. the landlord was pissed as hell. i ended up moving and then the girl that moved in after me, when i talked to her a year later told me that one of the squatter kids was shooting heroin and ended up stealing a fuckload of her stuff to sell it for money. glad i was gone before that happened to me.
had another group of roommates who was awful when i was in bloomington. one was a speed dealer, one was a stripper, and the other was a stupid whore raver chick who was a wannabe promoter. the day i moved in, the stripper was od'ing on speed. the stupid raver chick was a dumb whore and a half who would fuck anything that walked as long as they were a dj or a promoter. her room was so nasty. when the rest of us would clean the house, we would pile all the stuff she left out in the living room on her bed, and the dumb bitch would just burrow underneath it to sleep. funny thing was that i was in school at the time too, and i ended up splitting out of house and didn't even care that i was in the middle of the semester. i just wanted the fuck out of that house. i would cook and people would complain about the smell because they never ate at all. it was insane.
