17 Types of Roommates That Are Actually The Worst

If you're living out in the big, bad world, chances are you're going to have to bunk with a roommate at some point. But for every Craigslist angel you may find, there are about a dozen devilish roommates just waiting to sign that lease agreement on the dotted line.

What are the worst types of roommates? Have you ever said, "I hate my roommate"? Knowing this list could help you avoid your very own roommate from hell. Some of these bad roommates you may recognize from your own life. And if you don’t, well, maybe somebody up there likes you.

    The Snoop

    Lock your doors and reset your passwords because this kind of roommate has no idea what privacy looks like. You're not quite sure what they get out of looking through your closets and reading your emails, but you're pretty sure they've got a bright future if Facebook is ever hiring.

    The Thief

    They don't know where it is and they don't know how it got in their room, but they definitely had nothing to do with hiding it in their secret drawer with the other stuff you thought went missing. But don't feel special, their sticky fingers have a big reach no matter where they go. Well, at least you both get a nice TV out of it.

    The Slob

    If you haven't been able to see your bathroom sink for over a week and you live in daily fear of opening tupperware in your fridge that you didn't pack yourself, chances are you're living with a slob. Why pick up after themselves when they've got you around?

    The Drama Magnet

    Why can't you understand?! It's not their fault that they missed their shift at work. And that their car was towed after being in the red zone for only, like, a minute. And that their friend got them both arrested because they tried to steal a police horse. And that that horse is now in your yard eating your new vegetable garden. It's really, like, not their fault, OK? Don't be so judgmental!

    The My Stereo Goes to 11!

    If your roommate trips and falls in their room and nobody is home, do they make a sound? Nobody knows, because your roommate has been blasting the same wubwub dub step track so unfathomably loud that the entire apartment complex would probably ignore it even if they did.

    The Absentminded Pet Owner

    Sure, you think rooming with a pet owner is going to be 24/7 tummy rubs and couch cuddling with their pet without all that pesky responsibility. But you'd hope SOMEBODY would be responsible for this needy creature and all the poop it makes!
