From college roommates to Craigslist randos, you know the anxiety that comes with living with another person. You might find yourself asking, will they be clean and organized? Are they going to loudly hook up with someone every night? Are they generally sane and tolerable? While some roommate situations can spark amazing friendships, other scenarios can be total nightmares. Here, 17 people reveal some truly horrible tales that will make you consider living alone pretty much immediately. 

1. “My roommate stayed at school the week between spring and summer classes while I went home. When I returned, I found a mysterious phone charger in my room. Not thinking much of it, I put it out in the living room for its owner. Later, I told my roommate that I found a phone charger and asked if it was hers. And she says, “Oh yeah, I meant to tell you, I slept in your bed while you were gone because my boyfriend puked up red wine all over my bed. She had slept in my bed multiple nights because she was too lazy to clean her sheets and she didn’t even clean my sheets.” —Amanda, 20

2. “I walked into my roommate having sex with a guy … her boyfriend of two years wasn’t in the room with her.” —Sam, 20

3. “Having bunk beds and waking up scared that the bed is moving. Then realizing what that means, what is happening below to make the bed rock. Also, we were not close and it wasn’t with the father of her 1 year old, who woke me up crying a couple weekends. Why is a baby in a dorm? —Kristen, 22

4. “I had a horrible, nightmare roommate who had no sense of smell. Her boyfriend was a creep who lived with us without my permission and they each paid one-quarter of the rent while I paid half (he also loved to leave hair in the bathroom sink!) She got pet rats that stank, and they escaped and ate/pooped on a bunch of my stuff when I was out of the apartment on winter break.” —Kylie, 22

5. “One of her requests was that my nails and toenails always be painted. I should have known from that things would get weirder. I came home from class one day, and she had all the lights off and was just sitting in the dark. I went down the hall to hang with some friends and she came bursting through the door screaming at me. She was so hysterical, I can’t even tell you what she was saying. We all sat there in silence while she screamed and cursed at me. I slept in my friend’s dorm that night; the next day I came home from my morning class and she had moved out.” —Laura, 28

6. “During my freshman year of college, I woke up one morning to my roommate lying in her bed reading a book. That was normal. What wasn’t normal was when she realized I was awake, she told me she saw a ghost in our room last night. Apparently, it was a man who looked like a hobo and he was sitting on my bed watching me sleep. She said once she looked at him, he disappeared. I haven’t roomed with her since.” —Liz, 21

7. “She ate all of my Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. All of them. Wouldn’t restock, wouldn’t even leave the last for me. She never mentioned it or asked, so I guess she thought they were free for all?” —Hannah, 23

8. “Freshman year, my suitemate had loud shower sex with her boyfriend in our shared bathroom at 3 in the morning. She got even louder after she was told to stop.” —Taylor, 23

9. “For my freshman year, my best friend and I moved into a two-bedroom apartment together. Not even a month into moving in, I was suspicious someone was going through my stuff and decided to set my computer up to record while I was at class. Turns out she had given her boyfriend a key to the apartment and he had let himself into my room when we were both gone. He stayed in my room for about five minutes, in which he used the time to go through my underwear drawer.” —Morgan, 20

10. “My drunk roommate had texted me demanding that I leave the room so he can have sex. Now, before my roommate had gone out that night, I had made it explicitly clear that I was studying and that I had an exam early the next morning, so I needed him not to be a drunk asshole so I could get some sleep. Nevertheless, he was very adamant and argued incessantly that he needed the room … An hour later, I come back and the door is locked. It is very late at this point, and I didn’t feel like putting up a fight, so I went to a friend’s room and slept on his couch. With my exam the next morning in less than six hours. The next day after my exam, I come back to find my roommate, who confirms that he did not have sex, and that he sexiled me to a friend’s couch the night before I had a big exam for absolutely nothing.” —Daniel, 21

11. “He would never clean the bathroom. No, in fact, he used to poop and then not flush. Now I don’t know what was more disturbing, the fact that he didn’t flush or the fact that I NEVER SAW ANY TOILER PAPER IN THERE. This gets worse. I decided to finally approach him about this one day because, quite frankly, I was tired of literally cleaning up his shit. So he awkwardly walks over to the bathroom with a piece of cardboard … and he would chop his poop into tinier pieces and then flush it. Gross. But still not the climax of this horror story. You see, he would leave the shit-covered cardboard in the bathroom next to the toilet and USE IT AGAIN LATER.” —Charles, 23
