1. The house will only get cleaned if someone's parents are coming to visit.

Which is as good an occasion as any.

2. Before long, you'll have to start getting creative with what can double up as a vessel for food.

Eating cereal out of a pan because no bowls. Life is at an all time low

3. The cleaning rota will last approximately 12 days.

But top marks for creativity.

4. This will be the cause of at least one argument:


Why would you leave this little milk in the carton?!?

5. You'll have grandiose ideas about sitting down and enjoying the Sunday roasts you'll cook together.

6. Only for your diet to largely revert back to tea, custard creams, and "two for Tuesdays".

We're not judging. Sometimes you just don't have the time to cook as a group.

7. You'll have one, comically undersized clothes horse.

Meaning damp clothes are forever hanging off chairs and the bannister.

8. The landlord-tenant relationship is all about hearing no evil and seeing no evil.

Which means you pretend not to know about that stain you made on the carpet, and they pretend not to know about the radiator being on the fritz.

9. You probably have one of these lampshades.

And friendship will only truly be cemented once you've made your first collage.

13. There's always one who'll either be streaming or downloading at every hour of the day.
