People Are Sharing Their Freshman Year Roommate Horror Stories (21 Stories)

11. Puppet Roommate

“My roommate wore a puppet on her shoulder and if you asked her a question, she would answer with the puppet. It was a puppet of a griffin, which is a mythological creature that’s a combination of a lion and eagle. We also had all the same classes together and I woke up late more than once to that damn puppet in my face telling me the time.”


12. It’s not mine! I swear!

“My freshman roommate had a habit of hiding his booze in my desk (without my permission) so he wouldn’t get the heat if he got caught. One day, I came back to the room and found my tablet smashed. Apparently, he heard someone knock on the door and thought it was an RA, so he opened a drawer in my desk and threw a glass bottle in it, shattering my tablet.”


13. Dad in my bed?

“My roommate thought it was okay to have his dad sleep in my bed (without my permission) after they partied together while I was gone for the weekend.”


14. VERY bad sharing skills

“She taped a piece of paper over her clock because she didn’t want to ‘share’ it. She, of course, could not read the time either. But she’d rather suffer than have to share anything with me.”


15. You had sex where??

“At the end of the year, my roommate gave me a list of everything I owned that he’d had sex on.”


16. Too lazy to pee

“He left dozens of water bottles of piss all over the apartment since the six-foot walk to the bathroom was too much.”


17. Nudist Colony

“He used to walk around completely naked, with the exception of a hat. He even did this while my girlfriend was over. I said something to him about it once. He walked up to me, almost close enough for it to touch me, and asked if I wanted my ass kicked. I changed rooms shortly after.”


18. HANG the Towel.

“She decided it’d be a good idea to dry a towel on top of a lamp. It caught fire, and we had to move to a different hall for two months.”


19. Bathtub …tea

“My roommate freshman year brewed tea in our bathtub and would bottle it up with empty apple juice containers and store it in our fridge. I did not store anything in the fridge for the remainder of the year.”


20. A horrible dog

“She brought a chihuahua into a no-pets dorm and left it alone all night. It howled.”
