Throwback Thursday: Do you have any crazy roommate stories? #TBT

It's Thursday!


I once had this roommate that had this super fast metabolism. I mean, he literally had to have something to eat on him at any given time or else trouble was brewing. This is all good and fine (well not for him, poor guy). We all have our challenges. But the thing is, he ate almost everything in the fridge! Also on my side and then when I asked him where my food was, he was like "I dunno, I didn't take it!" Yeah I paid for two - well probably three or four - when I had that roommate...


Alright, spill 'em crazy roommate stories but keep it clean and non-nasty :)

Let’s make it a great Thursday!


I don't remember any specifically weird roommates but I have a sneaking suspicion that some of them might name me as the crazy/weird roommate they had :þ

When I was a freshman at university, my roommate for the first few weeks of the school year was actually our floor's RA (someone employed by the university to live on the floor and keep an eye on everyone and act as a peer advisor). So I had to follow all the rules perfectly or else she could lose her job.

RAs are supposed to get their own room (as a perk for their work) so she wasn't exactly happy to have me, either. We never had any direct issues, but it was just sort of awkward.

Not so weird, but definitely not a fun match! I spent maybe $40 on candles as soon as I moved in with someone else.

Thanks everyone for sharing @Thorhalla Gudmundsdottir Beck  @John Carriero  @Samie Kaufman - Your Gal at Gliffy  I guess "crazy" and "weird" is all relative and "in the eye of the beholder" :) Fun stuff. Hope you all have a great weekend!
