Storytime: Housemates from Hell

I've been renting for about eight years now and have always been sharing room for reason to cut down cost of living. I usually have no problems with my roommates though I'm pretty sure they might have found a few quirks of mine but usually my roomies say I'm the nicest person ever, I greet them, we shared stories, I clean up after myself and the list goes on and on. I'm sure my landlady love me for the fact I pay my rent on time :D (except for one who hated me because I'm everything she's not, but that's a story for another day)

Today I'm writing of the few not too nice experiences I had and these are NOT meant to spread hate. Some of you may relate to them or if you have not_ lucky you!_ feel free to be emphatic towards my experience or just laugh at my past misfortunes like my bff does. She thinks I have quite interesting stories to tell.

Rotten Apple

One time I was staying with this housemate who from what I hear is from a not-too-bad family but has the tendency to steal. His habit made him got kicked out in college. 

My then roomie and I only found that out one day when she was alone in the room and the dude came into our room, thinking the room was empty. Later, we confirmed that we did loose a few RM50 notes_the one time I left some cash in my room! His roomies knew about this and only after the incident, told us WTF. Later his roommates moved out in hope to get away from renting together with him because they too had lost quite a sum of cash.

Romeo, please leave me alone

So I have this housemate that was smitten by my independence and face WTF and ... Turn down factor _ he talks too much and need me to babysit him. From "where should I put (my stuff)", "how should I do this", it got to the point that it was so annoying I had to ask him to stop talking. He tried to 'buy' my attention by giving me gifts which I turned down the second time. Personally, one, I don't want to accept gifts that expect any sort or returns unless it's from my best buddies. Secondly, I can buy my own stuff. Damn right I can if I want to.

I thought rejecting his gifts were direct enough but I only found out he only 'get it' after, well, let's not have me describe how it happened. Later he moved out, I presumed for another job.

Slippers-wearing roommates

Yes, a lot of them. They all have one thing in common, wearing indoors flip flops because the have no time to clean the room, or totally don't give a damn about how dusty the house are. Totally not my favorite people.

Blood-y scare

A few years ago I lived in a townhouse and rented the top floor together with another girl, while a family of three lived in the ground floor. One night I got back home from my parttime then and was shocked to find the porch of the home splashed with red paint. I initially thought it was blood. Took a while to register it was paint because the housing area was dark.

It appears that the daughter of the tenant living downstairs had not paid a loan she took from loan sharks and they were finding for her. Thinking back it was good I came back after the loan sharks had left, what if they had mistaken me for her?! Not long later I moved out and was super relieved.

Ghost at home

So I have this one housemate, who, before she became my roommate begged me for a place to stay but forgot all about my niceness after staying with me. She wouldn't greet nor bother to talk after a few weeks of living there. Literally she's MUTE and goes about around the home without sound except for the time she calls her parents and bf, which is why she's like a ghost.

Many times I had stopped myself not to ask her to move out cause it's so annoying having her as my roomie, probably the first of a kind. (Though my bff reminded me that I have bad experience living with girls who's name rhymes with Shan Shan. What a curse!) And oh, one time I found my belt on her rack and yanked it back cause I wanted to wear it. And after that it went missing without a trace. I wonder which fucker who took it.

The only bright side is that she's paying her bills on time. Still, can't wait for her to move out or for me to get my own place :/ Would you gals actually stand this type of roommate or is this just me?

And this concludes my #storytime. I hope you people who are renting are not one of these sorta people here LOL. I have a few more post on #storytime but if you want to hear me talk about any of my previous experiences, tell me about it!
