i hate roommates!!

okay, so. I have a roommate right? we don't really talk anymore which is fine with me but now she's putting notes up instead of talking to me which got us into a huge fight a while ago. so anyway, since we pretty much stay in our own rooms, i put a note up for cooking because our dish rack is right beside the spot where we cook. on the note i put "If cooking with the pan or pot, empty the dishrack, cover it up or cook on the table please, to avoid having to rewash dishes." i put this because i've had to rewash my dishes many times because of splashing and such (and idk how but the dishrack gets food like spinach on it). and i worded it so it's not directed towards her...and just now i went out to refill my drink (also because she's cooking) and she completely ignores the note. and whenever i go to cook, i always empty the dishrack even if it's her stuff because i don't want to get it dirty.....what do i doo???

Sometimes it is difficult to live with a roommate that is not considerate about others. If you have already tried to talk to her...and she still has not changed.. then forget it. Some people are just not considerate. Whenever you wash your dishes...let them dry.. then just put them away. Leave hers in the dish drying rack, don't move them. Whenever you do cook and her dishes are there...just let them get splattered on. I know this is more work for you to keep your dishes dry and put away...but it will be less washing. Suck it up ....till your lease is up and you move out. ( I have had a bad roommate once.)

sometimes with roommates you just have to accept they're not like you and they will never be. usually one roommate does turn into a more mom role while the other is a more dad or kid role



there's not much you can do about that besides continue to make rules and notes for each other (and it's best to do this at the same time while you both sit down and have a meeting in the living room or something.) or just let it be and continue to do the more work



another good thing is if you can find somewhere else to put your dish rack i'm assuming you don't have a dish washer i sometimes use my dish washer as a drying rack. also do you have space to put things on the other side of the sink? can you lay some kitchen rag over the end of the dishes that aims toward the stove?

she sounds like an idiot.

you just need to tell her, or, do a massive thng and keep your cooking equipment in a locked cupboard =P

have a proper sit down chat with her, and then she will prolly realise.

very typical roommate problems-doesnt make it any easier though i know! its prob is gonna have to be face to face-sounds like she is more of an aggressive type personality so put it on her up front. always be calm, never accusing, ask questions like you dont know whats the matter-not like you think its her just say theres a problem at least to me and and what should we do to help make this better? I put a note up but maybe theres something more we can work out. if you get defensive or angry or bitchy then she's only gonna fight back making for a miserable year. theres no way anyone would respond teh way you want them to if they are being told they are wrong or stupid even if they know they are.

well...we don't have any room on the other side of the sink or else i would have moved it already and we do have drying clothes that could be used to cover the dishes...but do you think she'd do that? nope.

well, we live at residence (dormitory) so it's in both our names...and i've paid too much money to move out early. today was better though...we talked a bit (not about the problems we're having but it's okay...i think) we;ll see i guess
