Are You The Messy Roommate?
You're DEFINITELY not the messy roommate! Yeah, you're the exact opposite of messy. You might actually be the cleanest person in your apartment. Just remember, Clorox wipes aren't your only friends.
You're not really a messy roommate! Sure, every once in awhile you might not feel like cleaning but on the whole, you're pretty clean. You're the ideal roommate because you're pretty clean but not anal about it. Good for you.
There's no easy way to say this but... You're the messy roommate. There's nothing wrong with doing laundry every now and then but remember that the trash doesn't take itself out. What's the harm in helping out to clean?
