That One Final Straw That Makes You Want To Put Your Partner/Roommate/Friend Who Hangs Out at Your House All the Time Through a Wood Chipper And Leave Him Out By the Curb on Brush Pick Up Day

    Mine is watching my DVDs or listening to my CDs and leaving them scattered all over the place instead of putting them back in their cases and placing them back where you found them. A close second is not putting the remotes back where they belong. Or leaving towels on the floor or sink instead of hanging them on the rack. I probably have a touch of OCD but seriously, didn't your mother make you pick up your toys and put them away when you were a child?

    Not picking shit up when they drop it 'cause they're too fucking lazy to get up and do it.

    That and coming to my house, my kitchen and cooking shit I can't eat and leaving all the fucking mess and having my house smelling like dead cow.
    Oh Christ.
    lol

    Oh yeah, the cooking one's a big deal too. Don't cook seaweed filled whole wheat pasta or something similar and put it on my plate next to my hot dogs and chips and say "Try it." I'm not gonna try it.

    OMG I have a whole list:

    Hocking up a big wad of mucus, spitting it into the kitchen sink and just letting it SIT there.

    Never rinsing a plate or cup and putting it in the dishwasher. Instead, setting it down right in the middle of the sink where it HAS to be moved when I come along to rinse my dishes and put them in the dish washer.

    Not cleaning up after cooking a huge meal. Instead, piling the items that will fit into a dish pan full of dirty water that hasn't been emptied out in three weeks and letting them sit there for several days before finally washing them but continuing to leave the dish pan full of dirty water sit there with the dish sponges and scrubber soaking in it.

    Never cleaning the hair out of the bath tub drain.

    Never cleaning up the tooth past spittle in the bathroom sink.

    Never putting the new role of toilet paper on the holder.

    AND constantly asking ME to figure out what is wrong with THEIR computer when what it boils down to is they are too fucking lazy to figure it out for them selves!

    Ah, I feel SO much better now icon_smile.gif

    I guess we're just lucky in our friends, or a function of their older ages. We never experience this stuff.

    And we have some who stay with us for a couple of weeks at a time in our spare bedroom, South Florida being a popular vacation destination. One of our regulars is even a lesbian from Boston, and my only problem with her is she calls me every time she needs her TV volume adjusted or channel changed, claims she can't operate the remote. A lesbian? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Rofl! How about this: 'If I'm going to be a food taster you can try being a housekeeper. Fair?'
    And grin winningly as only you can.

    Yeah, where DO those things come from? I had no idea that so many images of well-attired sharks with monocles existed. Is Aristo commissioning them?

    Thankfully I have not had to deal with roomies since I lived in DC..about 3 1/2 years ago. I'm way to old for that now and hope/pray those days are over.

    Some classics of my past were:

    -The usual dish drama. Especially when left in the living room or, in one case, under the sofa.

    - Nasty and gross bathroom habits.

    - Bringing drugs into the house or drinking too hard, too often

    - In one case, a guy that had a thing for roughneck types, often homeless. He brought one home and wanted him to stay 'temporarily'. All hellz no. icon_exclaim.gif

    Really, I stockpile the output from the woodchipper in a big pile behind the barn. It's good for growing mushrooms and as a surface mulch.

    But yeah. There is one guy who comes out to the ranch "to help" for a couple of days - it takes me two days afterward to clean up all the mess he makes. icon_mad.gif

    I'm leaning more toward the BDSM solution though. Ten strokes with the paddle for every mess I have to clean up. And an extra weight on the ball stretcher for every tool he doesn't put away. Except I don't have that many weights.

    I lived in an apartment/residence with five flatmates for two years, and almost took it upon myself to be the guy to take out the garbages. We did have people to clean up the shared areas like the kitchen and the washrooms every once a week, but garbage bins would always fill up in two days or less. For the first part of first year, I sort of ignored it and just started avoiding the kitchen, but then noticed that we were getting fruitfly infestation.

    The worst was when the garbage bins were overflowing... some of the flatmates would just leave the leftovers and other garbages to rot on the countertops or the dining table. Coming home after a long day of work and studying to notice fruit flies buzzing around the leftovers that have been sitting out for fuck knows how long always drove me crazy

    Can't imagine I ever would, but I would say if he ever did something that showed a flagrant disregard for who I am or "who we are as a couple".

    Inviting you to gay clubs to pick up in straight chicks for them.
    No.

    No OCD Mike. You are NORMAL.

    Leaving the spent toilet paper roll on the rod, which you don't even have to unclip because its free standing, and having a new toilet paper roll sitting above it on the window sill. icon_evil.gif

    Constantly closing the water valve under the kitchen sink. I fucking went ballistic.

    My roommate uses all of my laundry detergent and never replaces it. Ditto for the plastic cups next to the refrigerator water dispenser and paper towels.

    I don't understand why so many of us gay guys have roommates when you have to fucking deal with shit like that all the time. Every once in awhile I'll meet someone who lives alone, and that's a shocker.

    I am clean, but equally messy. I clean up when I feel like it. I may not get to it for a few hours, but it'll be clean before guests come over and before I go to bed at night. It would be hell to live with someone breathing down my neck to clean up all the time.

    There was a few times I almost threw my friend out drunk at 7 am and told him to drive because he had the music blaring loudly because he couldn't sleep due to doing 'Molly'. I'd literally go to the circuit breaker, and cut power to the whole house.

    Use the tools as weights.
