"One minute you'll be enjoying each other's company, playing cards, watching funny cats on YouTube, just hanging out — then you'll go to the bathroom and see toothpaste smeared all over the hand towel and sink. You'll stand in the doorway and yell, 'Dude, you've got toothpaste everywhere. Clean up after you brush your teeth.' Your new roommate will come chuckling down the hall all, 'Sorry, dude, I dropped my toothbrush after I put toothpaste on it, and I just forgot.' And you'll both laugh because that's a good enough excuse, but the next day the same thing will happen. And the next. And the next.
"Some days your ~roomie~ tries to weasel his way out of responsibilities, and those days just suck because there you are standing over your roommate like 'Jeez, dude, just get a job, you can't freeload forever and by the way, I'm not picking up all the stuff you leave in the living room anymore and dude, you should probably stop eating on the couch because it's kinda getting gross' and you both just scowl at each other." —Tamara Troup
