Beware of the Signs.

As a single woman living in New York City, trying not to spend every penny in housing, you will sometimes have to have a roommate. Create rules, map out who will do what, who will buy what, create an open discussion so that there aren’t any issues later on. Trust, its super unhealthy when you hate your roommate, and have to reside with them for a year. As fast as time goes by, it doesn’t go by fast enough when living with a person you’d rather not.

My Rules

Do not touch what is not yours. If you do, please return or replace.

If you are planning on having company, give a heads up so I can dress appropriately.

I can’t stand when someone touches something that is not theirs, then have the nerve not put it back where and how they found it. And if they use it all, how hard is it to replace it? I find that folks believe they are entitled to things that they aren’t. I’m still trying to understand why people believe this behavior is acceptable. Once again, as a single woman, I’m not out here to make sure the fridge is stocked with food you like, or snacks you like to munch on.

Have you ever had a shitty roommate?
