My worst roommate experience occurred during my first year of college, when I was paired with an…eccentric young woman named “Jane.” Jane was nice enough, but her requests for me to shave her mohawk and keep the window open during the dead of winter were somewhat unnerving. The most uncomfortable incident, however, was when I stepped out of our bathroom in a towel, only to have her corner me and start a half-hour rant about why evolution is false. I actually did end up writing Jane a note about the incident, but it was very sweet and filled with lines like, “I totally respect your views.” Some roomies, however, forego the polite mannerisms and leap straight for nasty notes. Read a few great ones here!
