what happened to, "yea, i'll give you a heads up"

so, i'm sitting here in my apartment watching tv & looking around on this site. just a few seconds ago, my new room mate walked in w/ her bf (no big deal) & HIS PARENTS! i'm sitting here in teeny tiny pajama shorts & a white take w/ a teal bra. luckily, i have a blanket covering some of me, but still. when she moved in, we talked about a few rules that we wanted each other to follow. ya know, like the usual, please don't eat my food, labeling food w/ our initials, please being quiet if we're sleeping, & of course, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE PEOPLE OVER! we were both very nice about it & understood each other. i'm going to have to talk to her later about this b/c i feel a little embarrassed sitting here dressed like this in front of someone's parents. she also kept me up last night. it sounded like she was hammering something AT 2 IN THE F*** MORNING! she didn't stop making noise until around 3:30, despite the fact that i texted her to please be a little quieter. she had to know that i was trying to sleep b/c my lights were off & there was no noise coming from my room. i feel like the rest of this semester is about to go to shit. i miss having the place to myself. the worst part is that she moved in MONDAY!

Roommates are God's way of saying 'Are the split utilities really worth the loss of your sanity?'

Haha, I totally agree!!!

If she's already going against the rules you two set, politely hand her back her deposit and find a new roommate.

Things will likely only get worse!

well, see, i can't do that. the apartment complex i live in rents out by the room, not the apartment. we have a utilities cap, so we each pay $60 a month for utilities (i live in a 3 person town house). i got a text from her last week saying that she was moving in. the front office moved her b/c 1 of her old room mates was going into their rooms & moving stuff around. my other room mate & i knew each other & signed up to live together, but we never found a 3rd person which means that we were going to get stuck w/ someone we don't know. i just have to make it to the end of december. then i have to find someone to take over my lease, b/c they won't let me pay my way out of it, & when i went to ask about changing it to a semester lease, they didn't tell me that they only offer 10 a semester. so, when i actually went to change it, they had none left. i have to have an internship next semester to graduate, & i'm trying to find 1 somewhere near my home town so i can commute from home & save money. either way, i'm getting out of here in december no matter what i have to do. i can't live in this out in the middle of nowhere town anymore.

Since it's only been a week since she moved in I would probably try revisiting the rules with her before just asking her to leave. But SaMiKaY has a point that a lot of the time things get worse. If your roommate gives you attitude or a wishy washy response like "Alright, whatever" then it's definitely in your better interests to boot her out sooner rather than later.

Okay, I can see where you're coming from. Since she's still pretty new in the living situation, she probably has to be reminded about the rules a few times - some people learn better by repetition. I do hope it settles down in the meantime.

But congrats on getting ever closer to your degree! Yay for an internship!

i wish i could ask her to leave, but i'm not allowed to. the only way i could get her to leave is if my other room mate & i were to go to the office & ask her to be moved to a different apartment b/c we didn't feel safe living w/ her, or if she asked to be moved to a different apartment. other than that, i have no say in whether she can stay or go. it's a lot like student housing.

Good luck and try to nicely reinforce the rules for her. Sometimes it takes a few reminders for it to sink in.
