    Hi Guys!

    I have a roommate problem: he keeps on going into my room.
    We've had a chat, but he didn't seen to get it. I'd value your feed back. This is the note I'm thinking of sending him:

    Re: A Room Of One's Own

    Hello Andrew,

    Thank you for our chat. To reiterate: I appreciate your hospitality, however, when I rented my room from you for $740.00 per month I understood it was supposed to be my space. It would be most hospitable of you if you would ask before you entered my room, or switched things up: sheets, lights, lamps, Art, etc. I value and need my privacy, as I am sure you value yours. I accept your apology and forgive your transgressions. Please don't do it again.

    Sincerely,
    Owen

    It's nice but firm in addition to being a second request. If that doesn't do it, find a new roommate :/

    I would have had a teddy bear nanny-cam going by now.

    No noteā€¦..just pull a seriously fucked up WTF face when he comes in and be like "Oi!! I just had a chat to you the other day about not coming into me room"! and really assert yourself!, don't be backed into a passive aggressive corner lash out like a rabid dog and protect your territory.

    I'm thoroughly confused. Who's the landlord and who's the renter here?

    Can you simply tell him in a friendly manner in person? Leaving a note seems more serious in my opinion.

    It's his house, his room technically. Although that doesn't necessarily give him the right to go through your things, you have to approach this carefully. First off, not sure why you're writing him a note since you've already had a chat with him. Has this been a recurring problem? Or is this the first occurrence?
