Having roommates is a great idea to split the cost of rent, but finding people you're compatible with can be a struggle. Even when you think you know someone, learning about someone's living habits can be a real game-changer. Suddenly discovering that you moved in with someone who thinks a month is an acceptable amount of time to leave dirty dishes in the sink? Were you unaware that the internet stranger you allowed to move into your apartment sings opera all day at top volume and has a nocturnal exotic pet whose wheel keeps you awake all night? It's all part of the adventure that is shared living spaces! How exciting!
If you've ever had roommates, you're probably familiar with some of the chaos that can come from sharing a small space with people. For all the fun times you can share with each other in your home, there are often full blown nightmare horror shows that'll make you wish your biggest problem was that your roommates don't clean their hair out of the shower drain. So, when a recent Reddit user asked the internet, "What are your roommate horror stories?" people were definitely ready to share.
