1. Trying not to judge people with messy bathrooms.
Who can shower with that much mould in their grout?
3. Seeing an empty packet left on the kitchen counter.
Try not to cast blame – it’s the messy people’s way. But seriously, the bin is JUST THERE!
4. The horror of empty toilet roll tubes that have not been put in the bin.
The bin is literally next to the toilet!!!!
5. When people think tables are storage devices.
No, that is what shelves are for. Shelves are like little tables that you can leave your all your shit on.
7. Or that floordrobes are a thing.
No, wardrobes are a thing. Inside them is where your clothes belong.
9. When your housemate asks where the hoover is.
“IF YOU USED IT MORE YOU’D KNOW!!!”
10. The guilt when you have to leave the house straight after dinner and can’t wash up.
I’ll do it in the morning… I PROMISE!
11. The shame you feel after your drunk self left all your clothes on the floor.
Your sober self would never dare do something like that.
12. Trying to hide the horror at how much your housemates let the tidiness standards slip if you go away for the weekend.
13. Trying to subtly stem the tide of shoes from people’s rooms into communal spaces.
14. Or worse, when people leave their socks in communal places.
Try not to throw them back in their faces.
15. Trying not to start a war when someone leaves the butter out.
Especially if it’s spreadable, because letting that stuff melt ruins it.
16. Or worse, the milk.
It will go bad, and then who will buy more? Probably you.
17. Trying to ask your housemates to tidy without sounding like a total bitch.
This gets harder on the third repeat of: “You know what’s fun? Taking the bins out.”
18. Desperately trying not to do your housemate’s share of the chores.
They will do it in their own time. And if you do it, you will hate them for it.
