    23 Struggles Of Being The Tidiest Person In A House-Share

    The temptation to leave passive aggressive notes is strong.

    1. This is what your housemates think of as a clean kitchen.

    2. You're always the person who has to sort this shit out.

    3. And this shit.

    4. You're pretty sure you're the only person who knows where the hoover is.

    5. If you do see one of your housemates cleaning, it's like seeing a rare wild animal.

    6. And they probably will miss a spot.

    7. You're pretty sure if you didn't live in the house, this would happen.

    8. Even if you say you won't do the cleaning up after a party... you probably will.

    9. Sometimes you decide to play by their rules, and go on strike.

    10. But you still always end up cracking first.

    11. Sometimes you think everyone else must be blind to dirt.

    12. It's a constant struggle not leaving passive aggressive notes.

    13. It's almost impossible to sound casual when asking someone to take the bin out for the third time.

    14. Everyday it's you against the shoe tide.

    15. When your housemates leave something on a table for weeks, treating that table like it's a shelf.

    16. How people can leave an empty packet in the cupboard is a complete mystery to you.

    17. Or when they don't even bother putting the empty packet back in the cupboard, and just leave it on the counter top.

    18. This is a crime against civilisation.

    19. Their slovenly habits have made you fear for your health.

    20. You fantasize about doing this all the time.

    21. Sometimes it feels like this might be true.

    22. Maybe one day they will learn...

    23. But probably not.

    Keep up the fight!

    And when it all gets a bit much just watch some nice pressure washing.
