Re: Bad flatmates
1st year of university. Living in on campus housing with 5 other people, 3 guys and 2 girls. The 2 girls were Chinese and were an absolute nightmare. They were typical rich foreign students who obviously had everything done for them, like their parents had cleaners or something. Anyway, they were two of the rudest most obnoxious people I've ever met in my entire life and their friends were equally as bad. They would literally keep me and my friend Pieter up till 5 am every single day of the week whether we had to go in for class in the morning or not. They would be blasting their music really loud, talking extremely louding, screaming at each other, running up and down the hall and stairs, slamming the doors...I wouldn't mind this on the days I've got nothing to do the following day but this was every.single.fucking.night.
They contributed nothing to help maintain the house, didn't take any of the rubbish out whatsoever and didn't clean up after themselves. I'm not a clean freak but I like everything to be relatively tidy at the least. They would always cook dinner and not clean up any of the mess after them, they would track their muddy shoes into the kitchen so the floor was constantly really dirty and they would never do anything any of the rest of us asked of them. Whenever something happened in the house that pissed me or Pieter off they would blame it on Dan who they didn't get on with. They used to constantly piss him off by knocking on his door and shouting outside his room. We knew he wasn't doing anything.
This is all relatively normal stuff with bad housemates until we get to the Chinese girl's friend who would come round every 2 days or so and cook for them, he would make such a mess where all the workboards would be covered in so much food which of course he didn't clear up. The worst part of it is one time the cleaner came round and saw food fat had been thrown down the toilet which we all got into shit for. The girls naturally blamed it on Dan who it clearly wasn't because the meat that was cooked was red and Dan doesn't eat red meat. A few days later, me and Pieter whilst getting ready to cook for ourselves caught the guy trying to throw food fat down the sink which would have almost certainly blocked the sink and got us in some major problems. So we knew it was him doing it. About a week after that the same cleaner came in and caught the guy throwing the fat down the toilet again...so in the end, we resorted to telling the guy to fuck off and never coming back. The funniest thing was he was obviously attracted to one of the girls as he was always kissing her ass and sucking up to her yet she was such a slut and would be fucking a different guy every 2 or 3 days (she was ugly too, really greasy, just yuck). One time I got drunk and saw that some purple liquid shit was thrown down the toilet, this was close to the food fat incident and I was so angry I bashed on her down and shouted at her for it. I felt quite bad after but at the time, I was just super pissed.
They were just generally weird too. Like they would cook their food at our house and then take the food all the way across the field to another house to eat it...and I'm thinking, why didn't you just cook the food at the place you were going to eat it? So fucking strange. The worst part of it was we all wrote letters complaining about the two girls and it took ages for the head of the college to respond and then when he did he was such a fucking joke. He didn't do anything to help us and was too much of a pussy to even move the girls out of the house and into different accomodation. The girls claimed that the head of the college was being "racist" and threatened to take legal action...so much bullshit and he caved into it! Obviously didn't want to get his reputation hurt or get into any trouble...no backbone!
So in the end after a nightmare ordeal, I moved myself out to a friend's house which was much better.
This is an alarm clock, so wake up wake up now.
