A New Zealand woman identified only as Sarah has told what may be the worst roommate story we've heard to Australia's 9Honey News. She and her boyfriend, both 28, were sharing an apartment with another couple they had met on the website Trade Me. Everything seemed normal, until they noticed objects being moved in their bedroom. Then they noticed foreign hairs in their drawers, which is when things got really weird. Sarah described one bizarre encounter with her female roommate:

I often used dry shampoo which was brown to match my dark hair and she has blonde hair. One day after work, I asked if she had dyed her roots because they were so brown and she went bright red. At the time, I didn’t understand why a simple question would get that reaction, a couple of weeks later, I found out why.

Sarah and her boyfriend began placing a shoe next to their bedroom door. Sure enough, they found it moved every morning. (Man, these roommates are bad at covering their tracks.) At this point, they were well within their rights to confront them. Instead, they decided to go full Paranormal Activity, and set up a hidden camera. But what they saw was a thousand times scarier than any ghost.

Yes, they caught their female roommate stealing beauty products. But they also saw something much, much worse. Every day, their male roommate was going into their bathroom, lowering his pants, and rubbing their toothbrushes on his genitals.

When Sarah's boyfriend called to tell her about the video, she was shocked. First she cried, then she bought new toothbrushes (smart), then she went home. Seeing this dirty man, she held up the new toothbrushes and asked him, "Why the f*** do we need these new toothbrushes?" He turned bright red before meekly responding, "I have a toothbrush obsession."

Sarah threw the defiled brushes at him and stormed out. She and her boyfriend moved out the next day, but didn't follow up on their threats to call the police or tell the landlord. Instead, they just shared their story and video with the media, to serve as a cautionary tale for unsuspecting roommates the world over.

Do you find that your mouth tastes weird after you brush your teeth? Do you have a roommate? It might be that you're using the wrong toothpaste. But just in case, you'd better invest in a camera.
