Hello everyone, hope this is okay.... I am here to advertise a new community you may be interested in!http://community.livejournal.com/housematehorror/
If you've lived in shared accommodation before, I don't doubt you know exactly what this community is about already.
Dishes left in the sink for weeks on end. Things growing in shower plugholes. Rent, phone bills, power bills unpaid. Dirty underwear left on top of the TV. Ridiculously loud sex noises coming from the next room when you're having an over-the-phone job interview. All these things and more are the perils of living in a sharehouse, flat, dorm... you may have moved in with a friend and thought you'd get along great, only to discover they like to clip their toenails on the kitchen table. You may have moved in with complete strangers in the vain hope you'd have something in common, only to discover they have a penchant for growing poisonous exotic plants in the bathtub. You may have moved out of your parents' house with your brother or sister, only to discover that once out of the nest they spend all their rent money on booze and leave you in the lurch. We understand. We're here for you. WE HATE HORROR HOUSEMATES!!!
Whatever your dilemma, post about it here! You'll be sure to find sympathy from like-minded people who enjoy such things as personal hygiene and not being in debt!
