    Text - t 24 347 Brian Hamilton @_brianhamilton 24h We lived in a studio apartment together. When I was sleeping, he would walk in, turn on the light, and start making dinner. When I was making dinner, he would turn off the light and go to bed. I got very good at cooking with my phone light.

    Text - t 64 650 Emily Gadek @emilygadabout Feb 21 Replying to @GeeDee215 When I lived in LA, my roommate bought two 'miniature' rabbits off a guy on the Venice Boardwalk. Needless to say, they soon became enormous, peed on everything, and because they were both male, had constant, terrifying, Watership-Down style fights to the near-death

    Text - Emily C. Singer @CahnEmily Feb 21 t 29 245 Mic Union True story: In college I had a roommate have an orgy in our living room and then when we confronted her with housing staff, she refused to move out, so we just had a passive- aggressive standoff for months. It was horrendous.

    Text - Steven Hyden @Steven_Hyden Feb 21 t 84 577 In college, I had this dream that I was on a boat in the middle of a storm. I kept rocking back & forth, and thought I was going to die. When I woke up, I was still moving. After 10 scary seconds, I realized my roommate was having sex in the lower bunk.

    Text - 216 1.7K amara @caitlinamara Feb 21 Replying to @GeeDee215 College roommate abruptly stopped speaking to me; I alter came home to find her stuff gone. All she ever said was she "told housing services what [i] did." I later found out she was mad I didn't show enough respect when her boyfriend told me he was related to the Wright Brothers

    Text - t28 413 Mallory Yu @mallory_yu Feb 21 Replying to @GeeDee215 I did manage to get the passport back through some finagling (i.e. I bribed her horrible son with $25 and candy to find it for me the night before I moved out)

    Text - 180 1.1K Sara Lang @SaraLang Feb 21 Replying to @GeeDee215 T had a roommate who would stress eat watermelon, then get drunk, then decide that her "food baby" was an actual baby, buy it baby clothes online, and then fall asleep and wake up the next day and do it all again. We had so many baby clothes.
