2. "She was allergic to menstrual pads and would wash her bloody panties IN THE BATHROOM SINK. When I would go to brush my teeth, I'd see drops of blood everywhere."

I lived in a dorm for four months and would rarely have a week when the girls who lived with me wouldn't drive me up the wall. This girl who shared the bathroom with me would never ever under any circumstances take out the garbage. She was even allergic to menstrual pads and would wash her bloody panties IN THE BATHROOM SINK. When I would go to brush my teeth, I'd see drops of blood everywhere. I honestly have no idea how I didn't just grab her and throw her into the river next to our place. —Anonymous

3. "The girl had left a ROAST CHICKEN in her closet."

This is my mom's story: she was living in a dorm with this girl who would eat all of my mom's food and would hide her own food in the closet so no one would eat it. One day the girl went on a trip, and they started to notice a rank smell in the air. When they went to check it out, the girl had left a ROAST CHICKEN in her closet. But since the closet was locked, they had to break in to get the chicken out of there. When the girl got back from her trip, she still had the nerve to get mad at them for breaking into her closet. —Bruna Garcia

4. "I shared a room in a boarding house with a girl who never bathed. What's worse is that she was always scratching her vag, taking stuff out of it, and wiping it on the wall and on the furniture."

"I shared a room in a boarding house with a girl who never bathed, which made me feel quite uncomfortable. And what's worse is she was always scratching her vag, taking stuff out of it and wiping it on the wall and on the furniture. I was mostly afraid of getting into a fight with her and her shoving her 'vag-hand' in my face. But when I saw her sitting on my pillow, I had enough. I lunged at her and took a swing... She ended up leaving the place. —Gabrielle Thomaz

6. "There was a cardboard box on the floor from the move, and he decided to just sweep around the box."

During my first week living with a roommate, we both did our first big cleaning of the place. He was supposed to sweep the room. There was a cardboard box on the floor from the move, and apparently he decided to just sweep around the box. When I came back, everything was clean and I was surprised that the box was there. When I picked it up, I saw that the floor underneath was still dirty, and the spot was in the perfect shape of the box. —Aldo Cintra

7. "My roommate had gone five days without showering, when normally she would go one or two days."

My roommate had gone five days without showering, when normally she would go one or two days. We happened to be living in Santos, and boy was it hot as hell! And the first of the five days was right after she had spent an entire weekend with her boyfriend, if you know what I mean. —Camila Martins

8. "Everyone has shared a dorm with somebody who would make 'cotton candy' in the rice cooker."

Everyone has shared a dorm with somebody who would make 'cotton candy' in the rice cooker. You know, they make some rice, leave it covered and out in the open. In four days' time, the magic begins, and instead of rice, you get 'cotton candy.' Sometimes it's white, other times orange. It depends. —Daniel Moreto Silvestre

9. "I went to pee in the dark because I was too lazy to turn the light on. When I went to lift the toilet seat, I got my hand wet from pee."

One of my roommates wouldn't pee into the toilet bowl when he relieved himself. I got everybody together, sent photos, put up Post-it notes; until one day everyone had gone away and it was just the two of us in the house. I woke up in the wee hours of the morning, went to pee in the dark, because I was too lazy to turn the light on. When I went to lift the toilet seat, I got my hand wet from pee. —Guilherme Richard

10. "We decided to kick him out after discovering his collection of used condoms under the bed."

I was living in a dorm and in one of the rooms there was this really awful guy. I don't know how he ended up getting with some of the girls on campus. He never did his share of the chores, and he only ever complained about everything. We decided to kick him out after discovering his collection of used condoms under the bed. It was so bad there were maggots... Arrrgh!!!! —Carla Raiol

11. "Only those who have seen a rotten potato up close will know the horror I experienced."

"My roommate went on vacation and left a potato out in the open. When I got home, the potato had turned to mush. Only those who have seen a rotten potato up close will know the horror I experienced. It smells like human feces, but worse.  I am at a loss for words. I don't know how I didn't hurl." —Gabriel Brito Generoso

12. "The final straw was when she ruined one of my boots that I hadn't lent to her, plus I caught her using my roll-on deodorant!!!!"

There was this girl we lived with who ended up being kicked out of our dorm. She wouldn't wash dishes or she would wash/blow her nose there as well, and would still blame others. She would even take bras and panties from the girls without asking, and would leave them in her hamper for weeks. The final straw was when she ruined one of my boots that I hadn't lent to her, and I caught her using my roll-on deodorant!!!! —Bia Venâncio

14. "The dishes they used would sit in the sink for WEEKS to the point where mold would go from white to pink to green to black and then would fade away... in other words, THE MOLD DIED!"

"I lived with four guys! It was the wooorst! The dishes they used would sit in the sink for WEEKS to the point where mold would go from white to pink to green to black and then would fade away... in other words, THE MOLD DIED! They broke the glasses I bought, ate the food I bought.. But to me the worst thing was when one of those guys (my ex) went to the bathroom while having a smoke and threw a lit cigarette butt into the garbage and almost set the apartment on fire! —Fernanda Brandim

15. "During the 4 months we lived together, he NEVER washed his clothes."

"I shared an apartment with two girls and a guy. The guy just didn't wash his clothes. He would take off the clothes he wore and put them back in the closet, and would wear the same clothes again another day, and so on and so forth. During the 4 months we lived together he NEVER washed his clothes. It smelled so bad, and we simply didn't have it in us to speak up and tell him that he stank. Until one day the smell (think dead body) became too much, and I hurled. I sat down to talk with him, but he couldn't have cared less. He said he would do his laundry after that, but a week later he announced that his aunt had called, that he would be going to live with her.Note: From the time of our little chat to the moment he announced he would be moving, he still hadn't washed his clothes. When he moved out, we had to do a thorough clean of the apartment and throw out his mattress, since the stench had even gotten into the walls. —Bárbara Santeiro Gomes
