People Share Shocking Stories About The Worst Roommates They Ever Had

Time to Go

This story is crazy but we had some sympathy for the perpetrator until we read until the end. Often several people share a single bathroom in a house or apartment. A problem may arise when one person is in the shower and another requires the toilet.


“I was in the shower so my roommate decided to poop in a coffee tin and put it under his bed and then forgot about it,” the Redditor wrote. “We went to sleep, woke up to the whole room smelling disgusting and us having an inspection in a few minutes.”

Angry Pitbull

A Redditor revealed that one of their worst roommates kept a vicious pit bull in their house. We’re not talking about the famous hip-hop artist but the muscular dog. He had no control over the intimidating animal but reacted violently to any complaints.

The Spruce Pets

Bortnib wrote about one of the worst housemates ever. He said: “the guy refused to train his pitbull. If you shoved the dog away while it was biting you he would threaten to punch you in the face.” This is a harsh reaction because he obviously should have trained his pet.

R.A. Woes

Usually, when people have a problem with a college roommate they complain to the R.A. But this person found themselves in a horrific situation because their nemesis went there first. They lied about the Redditor’s behavior and created a massive problem for them.

“Had a roommate in college that went and told the R.A. I threatened to kill her just to get me kicked out of the dorm,” WonderWoman005 said. “She succeeded and I had to move, and also got banned from that building.” In short, they were one of the worst roommates in the history of the universe.

Protein Workouts

Few things annoy people more than wasted space in a house. One of the worst roommates abandoned all of his gym supplements in a public space. The craziest aspect of this was that he didn’t train at all. This meant it was a waste of money as well as a public annoyance.


TheDankBank1021 said: “He insisted on keeping his protein supplements, pre-workout, post-workout, and an ungodly amount of “testosterone pills” on an openly visible shelf and would go crazy if you touched them. He never once worked out in the year that I lived with him.”

Vomit Fan

This internet user admitted that they don’t hate their former roommate but they still had a horrible story. Many of these tales involve drunken nights and these create awkward situations. However, it’s impossible to script something like this because nobody would believe it.

“Roommate came back to the dorm after drinking,” the Redditor wrote. “Rolls over and throws up on my fan, which is running, and ends up literally blowing chunks of food all over the room. He tries to clean my fan with a paper towel the next morning and give it back to me.”

Wet Wipes

Imagine living with somebody who had a phobia of showering. This is a concept that’s too horrifying to imagine because the person will have a disgusting body odor. Meanwhile, the individual in question had a vile personality that didn’t help matters.


Erekes wrote: “I had a roommate named Lydia who was afraid of showering and only used wet wipes to clean herself, rather unsuccessfully. She also faked medical issues (Munchausen’s)? Oh, and she never took her dog outside, she let it poop in her bedroom.”

False Security

People must receive a receipt for their payments because things may go drastically wrong. If one person is responsible for a single payment they can abuse their power. The following story should serve as a warning to those in a similar situation.

“Roommate lied about paying utilities,” Manice08 said. “Spring came and so did a $1,500.00 bill I was stuck with and my roommate went across the country off the radar.” There’s nothing that anybody can do in this situation unless they hire a hitman to serve retribution.


Everybody should feel comfortable in the space where they’re living. That’s why housemates should clear potential guests with each other because it creates a sense of trust. It’s never a good idea to bring random strangers into a house because it stirs up problems.


“Punk hippy housemate let two homeless alcoholics crash on our couch with their chihuahua,” ChuckDuck253 explained. “I got scabies from them and got to deal with that for six months.” That’s a disgusting problem to deal with.

Cat Fight

Another cultural difference emerged when this Redditor shared a room with a Korean girl. The new roommate left some food out and the cat approached it. However, the girl reacted harshly and unexpectedly. It was disproportionate and created immediate tension.

DerpCatz revealed: “she decided the best course of action is to punch my cat in the face and chase him around the apartment. I literally had to drag her away from my cat while she screamed at him in Korean and swung her arms like a drunk kosher.”

Shower Woes

Sharing a bathroom can be disgusting because people are vile. The worst roommates leave traces of themselves behind and force others to clean after them. It’s disgusting because nobody wants to find hairs or dried vomit all of the time.


ThisIsNotAWar wrote: “She pooped in the shower. Multiple times. She puked on the floor and left it there all weekend while I was away. Oddly, what I found to be her worst offense was when I walked in on her washing her dishes in the sink with my toothbrush.”

S.W.A.T. Team

One person had an insane story because police entered his flat and arrested his housemate. It emerged that he was involved in a serious kidnapping in Toronto that led to the death of one person. This is a crazy tale about one of the worst roommates ever but it could have been worse.

CSO Online

They wrote: “My roommate kidnapped two guys and held them for ransom. One hostage was set free weeks later while the other wasn’t so lucky. The body was eventually found in a basement cemented and buried in the ground. Cops busted into the flat and apprehended my roommate while he was sleeping.”
