Oh my Gah....that's horrible!!!! but why do you have to clean after them? I would call them over, point at the issues at hand and give them a rant about cleaning habits and how utterly disgusting they are.

I have someone like that currently living with me BUT he does it only in his room after I yelled at him numerous times!!! He's my 20 year old brother and we live with my mom. Mom only comes home to cook because we don't want her to work more at her own home so the cleaning is our responsability. He's a disgusting little twat and I'm never cleaning after him, I always call him, fight and yell a little but he eventually does his job.(btw, he washes his clothes/ the dishes he uses/or whenever he cooks and cleans the bathroom every other day...I don't care about his room so I never bother him about it...mom is the one who's always nagging him about his room)

I'm moving out soon by myself but if my boyfriend or husband were like that I would definitely leave them!!!!

I'm not the cleanest person in the world yet I'm not the dirtiest either. I refuse to have a roommate like living with me and besides I rather live alone anyways.

Used, q tips... shitty toilet paper ok im not domestic goddess either but that's just plain gross I can feel my gag reflex kicking in. Id prolly buy him a box of depends recommend that if he cant clean up after taking a shit that he should go back to diapers :P

In all seriousness though I would be asking them to shape up or ship out and go back home to mommy

A cat?





No. Lol. Though I wish he was. He does sound very cat like though. Just a buddy of ours who got out of the military and is going to college. I love the guy but he is the perfect combination of bachelor and college student. I'm contemplating setting him up with someone just so they can help me police him. My cats are determined to knock over the dirty laundry hamper and pull out all the clothes and crawl inside or if there is nothing in the trash can besides the bag then they do the same to it. Plus they cuddle and don't have opposable thumbs which is the only reason they haven't taken over the world.

LOL to you and the person who said that they would put him in depends---though I automatically think about the messy depends that would be left everywhere. : /

I have tried calling him over and pointing it out.....being nice or picking a fight or leaving it until it's nasty beyond belief.....but no matter how nice I try to be it winds up being a horrible fight. As soon as it's apparent that I'm "pointing a finger" at him he flips his lid.....and I think a lot of it has to do with how he was raised.....people in his family just flat out refuse to admit they've done anything wrong ever and will just flat out lie to seem innocent and I feel really start believing that as the truth after a short time has passed and somehow see that as admirable behavior. It's pretty childish. They are decent people.....but the fucked up people I was raised by taught me to admit when I've done something wrong and just explain why and try and do better next time.....maybe that attitude has gotten me in trouble every so often but I feel that at LEAST acknowledging to yourself that things are potentially your own fault encourages positive change and growth and I respect others for acting the same way.

.....at times I tell myself that it's just the ADHD and upbringing but when faced with a nasty attitude after cleaning my ass off for said person when I'm trying to find the nicest way possible to beg that some small thing I'd prefer be done differently......that's just disrespectful and I love the fucking shit tits out of this person but more than the mess I'm upset by this persons lack of ability to communicate properly or compromise. Let me just say that I was his first girlfriend and we married I'm not perfect....I think he'd be pretty shocked at how hard it would be to keep any other woman around who had to take that attitude and mess. Though in some ways, because I'm not bringing in as much cash as he is or working the 9-
5 like he is.....is pretty much the reason as to why he is undisputedly allowed to do these things and I am required to pick up after it and to some degree I'd definitely agree to do more of the chores buuuut.....

I'm actually really understandable about the majority of the mess I have to deal with.....but I've gone to the trouble of putting garbage cans everywhere, and I'm not asking him to empty them out and take out the trash I'm just wondering why the HELL can't the garbage be put in them and not on the floor or any available surface.....

I still live with my family and they're much more of a clean freak than I am
My room is way messier compared to theirs even though it's really neater compared to let's say this one friend's room (I don't pile my clothes on the floor since I love my clothes, and there aren't any piles of junks either because that'll attract spiders and bugs)
What really irks me is when the trash is full and none of them have the initiative to take it out it's always been me who does that, but I guess it's fair sine I don't do anything else in the house.

Writing this makes me realize I'm actually kind of a neat freak and if I ever share a living space with someone who is messy beyond reason I'll kick them out

i've had those, i was always riled up about it because i'm such a clean freak especially about trash or piled up dishes, that always drove me crazy. but i think whoever i live with will have a hard time because i'm the type that moves your drink to put it on a coaster and don't even bother helping me clean, because i'll go right behind you and fix things the way i want them

i even make up my bed everyday...

This is why you shouldn't have roommates.

I saw this thread a few days ago and I didn't know what to think about it. It must really suck to be with someone who doesn't clean up that badly.
My brother's bedroom is all upside down with clothes laying everywhere on the floor. There is also a dust party there. I don't really like going there for that reason. He doesn't want to do anything about it. : O
I've just returned from work and there dishes everywhere in the sink instead of the dishwasher. And no one put the recycle blue bin on the side of the road. I really want to clean up that mess but why should I? It is their doings and not mine.
Where is Ryuuji when you need him?


......All right! I'm probably going to clean things up a bit and then go for a wonderful shower. : D

Anyway what is the worst mess you have had to deal with? The messiest person? Where do you draw the line? :o



Holy Toledo you're the adult in the house!... Others have offered plenty of advice so I'll just say I'm sorry to hear that you have to deal with the whole thing. One of my friends has a disastrous apartment (lives by himself) and whenever I'm there I'm just glad that I don't live with him

My wife is neat so if I wanna stay on her good side I had better not mess up the house LOL

(As for the line... The toilet paper thing you've described is seriously out of control)
