I have had two crazy roommate situations before, but this one is more unique so I’ll tell it instead. Plus, we’ve all heard the story about the crazy roommate that steals and is passive aggressive. My first college roommate situation started out fine, but then she started dating a guy in our building. His ex girlfriend from back home, coincidentally, lived on our floor. Prior to this incident, he had told me he had dragged her by the hair down the hallway a bit before this. I didn’t know if he was telling the truth or not since it seems he lies a lot and I wasn’t close to the ex girlfriend at all. Anyways, something happened where they started fighting in her room and he allegedly punched her a few times in the face, banged her head against the bed frame, and pulled a knife on her. Then he knocked on my door (my roommate wasn’t home) crying and was saying how he messed up his life. This is where he told me what he did to his ex. He then tried to stab himself with the knife. I remember holding the knife trying to pull it away from him. I don’t know if it was serious because he is stronger than me, but still. Anyways, he gets arrested. The girl’s face is completely bruised and her teeth are chipped. She doesn’t press charges. The guy and my roommate told me they were going to blackmail her to her parents, so maybe that is why. They are very strict and she was extremely promiscuous and did a lot of drugs. I’m not slut shaming though! (He did tell me when they dated, she took a video of her sleeping with other guys and sent it to him, but who knows if that is true.) Our school has a hearing. He and his girlfriend ask me to essentially lie for him. Also my roommate asked if I would lie for him in court. I noped out real quick. Also, my roommate was victim blaming the ex which pissed me off. As soon as I heard he didn’t get kicked out, I asked to switch rooms. I just packed up my stuff and didn’t tell her. They’re still together 4 years later. I ended up moving in with my now “college best friend,” so I guess it worked out? The girl ended up transferring to a different school.
