of her room and it has been siting outside for three weeks now. She used some dishes and they have been sitting on the stove for a week now. I cleaned the kitchen u, but I left her dishes sitting there because I'm tired of cleaning up after her. I thought when she came back to the apartment and smelled bleach but still saw her dirty didshes she would wash them and take her trash to the garbage but she still hasn't all she does when she gets in the house is the air condition down low to make the house freezing and go in her room. I can't stand her. I stay in apartment on campus and she is my roomate. I'm going to move to another apartment soon so that I can have a new roomate.

The joys of sharing with a lazy slob. Have you talked to her and discussed your expectations? If you do move, make sure beforehand that the people you share with have the same ideas about tidiness and cleanliness that you have.

You're situation is exactly identical to what mine was last year. Me and 3 other room mates lived in a cramped 780 sq. ft apartment together. Two of my room mates were perfectly cool. One of them sometimes had friends over late, but that wasn't too bad, because they'd quiet down after a while. However, the room mate I shared a bathroom with...as interesting of a person as she was, I couldn't stand a lot of her bad habits. For one, there was only one time in the entire 2 semesters we spent under the same roof that I can remember her cleaning (and that was when her boyfriend broke up with her). She'd do the dishes every now and then, but only if they piled up and there was little else to use. She was also one of those women who liked to wear weaves. What's worse is, she would put them in and take them out in the living room, which got hair all over the couch. She also put changed them in the bathroom, and wouldn't clean up after herself when she was done, so my entire bathroom floor was covered in hair (both real and fake). Because it was everywhere it would get tracked all over the apartment, and even managed to make it into our refrigerator. What's more is that, out of all of us, she was the one who had the least classes. Instead of doing something useful, she'd sit on the couch all day and watch T.V. It wasn't even good T.V., either, it was all those annoying reality shows MTV likes to feature. She wasn't really a bad girl - in fact she had one of those personalities that you'll never forget. She was also very nice. However, she was a complete slob, and I hated having to clean up after her (we had a roach problem so I had to keep the apartment relatively clean). But yeah, room mates like that are awful, and they leave you wanting to hit them over the head with something hard, and then ask what the hell is wrong with them. It can't be that hard to pick up after yourself, right?

I don't think I would either. However you have to go say something to her. If you are just leaving hints that won't do, you have to tell her that she needs to clean up and stop being a pig. It's hard to say, but that's what has to be done. I remember someone told me about throwing the dishes and everything dirty of a room mate in the trash. I think that is some hard justice, but your roommate needs to start doing stuff. Pablo

Why would you go instead her? Have you talked to her about it? WHy wouldn't you try talking to her about it then file a formal complaint so that she will go to another place? Go away from your current apartment means that you are the one who is at foult and you accepted it so you are moving out...which is not good..you should to talke to her first and when she refuse to cooporetate about those household chores then file a complaint.
