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 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.

They'll get you the rent in a week or so, just spot them this time, and they'll even give you double that, honest! OK, maybe not in a couple weeks... also, can you buy the toilet paper again? They would have picked some up but they needed new headphones. What? It's for work. Get you next time, bro!

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?
