I draw the line at them borrowing but not paying back significant sums of money. Is this person even paying their part of the rent? If not then kick the fucker out. And don't cave to his protests, because he will of course protest. A deadbeat who takes all your money and holds it against you when you want it back is no friend.

Also, I second sonofz. Although I'm not sure there are any stories about my old roommates that I haven't already posted multiple times on this forum.

I try not to lend money to people either. I had a situation similar to this and it still haunts me to this day. It's a massive factor in why I personally stopped drinking and drugging. I don't want to go into specifics but it was a raw deal and I know how this play leaves everyone feeling when the dust clears.

I hate money. I think one of the reasons I don't ever hang onto it for very long is I don't like the effect it has on people, least of all myself. It's a terrible way to judge someone and it's always a horrible scenario when someone forces your hand.

See Tommy if all of us had inordinate incomes like you do we might have the same philosophy. I personally have a love-hate relationship with money, because I really dislike it and its effect on many people, as well, but I want the freedoms that come with the having of it in a money-based and -focused society.


I always thought that it was a shame that most western cultures did away with bartering and trading, anyway. I think I want to have a business one day where both are allowed.

Sorry, minor quibble here because I hate building a reputation I don't deserve. I am reasonably well paid but I do not have an inordinate income by any stretch of the imagination. I also think I am barely compensated for the amount of work I do. I've worked the last five days back to back for very long hours, for example. I worked the fifteen days before Xmas and I only had two days off to recover. I might have periods of inactivity but I do a lot of work for a comparatively small amount of pay. After I have paid my mortgage, petrol and housekeeping I do not take home much money at all.

The only reason I appear to have money is because I don't have a social life. On the occasions when I am on holiday, I have a reasonable amount of money to spend because I literally do nothing but sit at home or at the office for the other two hundred and fifty days of the year.

It's sad, but yeah, I know exactly where tommy's coming from. The fact that you're dealing with an informal economy and have no real way to protect your interests other than opting out entirely or confrontation is for me the single biggest argument against drug use even if you do think you can handle your use fine. In such an enviroment sooner or later you're likely to meet someone who's going to be a dick about it, and I just don't think it's worth the aggravation even when things are going relatively smoothly, and that's even before you get to the part where people fuck up their priorities and become deadbeats. Mixing friendship with money matters is just bad in general.

My friends and I try to live on an informal system of paybacks. They realize I make peanuts compared to them so they are nice enough to cover certain expenses when we hang out. There is no explicit repayments by me, though I do try to treat at less expensive venues. This seems to work fine and helps iron out some of the income differences between us.

My old roomie and I liked to drink a lot, and when we drank we liked to listen to Bush and Pearl Jam. We lived in college town appartments, the kind that had been inhabited by 1200 drunken idiots before us, and the stains on the walls and floor were just barely covered over with the latest coat of paint. These apartments were small, and the main attraction in our livingroom was a 32in Tube TV, not one those nice new flat ones. Besides weighing 500 lbs, this TV had the loudest speakers of any television I have ever heard, so we watched Bush and Pearl Jam DVDs on it, jumped around the livingroom, knocked shit off all the shelves, and basically had a great time. I had checked out a copy of "The Romance (or Tragedy, or something) or Tristan and Isolte" for a paper in Early British Lit, and one night my roomie decided it would be fun to take the book and jump up and hit the ceiling with it when we were rocking out. A couple weeks later we were partying with a friend of ours and were taking turns jumping up and hitting the ceiling with the book until we realized how ridiculous it was and started laughing. We ended up with a hole in the cieling and the poor book trashed so I had to pay for a new one for the library. I'm still not sure why we started smashing the book against the ceiling in the first place, but it sure was fun.

Yeah, I've had a lot of trouble with being to nice and subbing a certain girl a twenty here and there whenever she needed it. Problem is, she's a royal bitch and doesn't talk to me any more. She actually gave me her guitar as payment, but then took it back when we fell out, and now I'm down money and a guitar. I hate people.

Yeah, don't lend money to folks. And if you're getting in trouble because of it, and they're still refusing to pay you back, I think that's the point where they're no longer considered a friend. There's being down on your luck, and there's taking advantage.

Me and my friends have a policy of no counting, but always return the favor. And we do, most of the time. Anyway, moochers should all burn in hell. My brother had a guy mooch off of him for months and then the guy basically robbed him and left. He stole the car and a bunch of stuff. He did get caught and arrested, but they found the car with everything in it on fire in a ditch. Yeah, so this guy was basically a crook and a meth addict that somehow wheedled himself into my brother's trust. I wanted to kill both of them.

I once lent my friend 1400$ for a bike he wanted to buy, in exchange for the assurance that he would pay me back within several months due to an impending windfall employment.  He didn't get the job and then our mutual best friend was using the bike once and it got stolen.  I've given up on the money at this point because neither of them is in a position to pay me back and therefore both are quick to point out that the responsibility should be placed on the other.  It's not worth it for me, mainly because coming up with that kind of money isn't in their capability anyway.

On the other hand, I've lent money to lots of my friends, sometimes in pretty heavy amounts, and I've never truly been punished for it (my friends are really good about fulfilling debts for the most part).  I guess the above story would suggest otherwise but at the time I was actually in a pretty good position to lend the money out and my income was accelerated enough that by the time it became an issue (when the bike got stolen) I honestly didn't need the money anymore, so I don't count it as much of a loss.

I will lend friends something like $1 or whatever when they need it, but that's really about it. I don't like lending money and I also don't like borrowing it, unless it's for $1, which usually is because I don't have any cash at work and therefore can't get a drink from the vending machine.

My brother has stolen small amounts of money from me before to pay for drugs.  (He owes me somewhere in the realm of 50$, but I stole some pot from him which he never found out about, so now it's more like 20$)  He keeps promising to pay me back, but he still does not have a job and is not actively looking for one, because he is content to be mooching off my parents (who are tired of listening to his excuses).  He recently one 100$ in a fantasy football pool, but instead of paying people back (he's also had some run-ins with dealers and apparently owes more than just our family), he goes and buys a half ounce of mexican crapweed.

In terms of lending people money, I don't have a lot to lend, but I don't lend unless I'm absolutely positive I'll get it back.  Or unless I believe it's something I'm willing to lose money on (an investment, in this case).  I lent my best friend 200 for car insurance, which I got back, and I've been buying computer parts for a friend of mine so he can start writing (which he's really good at, he just needs a spell checker/grammar checker) which he can't afford because him, his girlfriend, his brother and a friend/tenant are basically paying rent/utilities on the house while their mom lies on the couch watching movies/tv all day.  Two of those people are currently out of a job, and one's a drug dealer, and they've got hospital bills to pay.  Basically I'm helping them because they're up shit creek and don't deserve it.

Not really about lending money... but the first share-house I ever moved into was an absolute cliche of a student share-house.

One time the washing-up was left for so long that a small plant sprouted out of the grouting next to the sink, obviously a grain-seed of some description had germinated and made a desperate bid for freedom. Other attractions included: A slowly expanding hole in the kitchen floor covered with chopping boards taped over it, a light switch in the bathroom that gave you small jolts whenever someone would use the shower, the Slug Cupboard, some random unemployed musician living in the garage, and to top it off, one time the upstairs neighbour's pipes started leaking, giving us a steady indoor drizzle which the dodgy landlord refused to fix for a week, leading to the adoption of indoor umbrellas.

Good times!

On the plus side, every other house I've ever lived in seems much nicer in comparison.

that book is great. anyone wanting to share a house should read it. the movie is also good.
i wasn't willing to lend money as i don't have it and i am now in awful debt and have many other problems but i was mostly trying to cover my own arse with the rental records and all that. if i get evicted it's pretty impossible to get a lease again. it sucks seeing someone fall so hard. also, it was a she and she was freaking arrested for assaulting me and her boyfriend, cut herself up real bad and tried to set herself on fire with nail polish remover...luckily she has gone!!! hell yes! rehab for a year!
i don't expect to get any money back though. at least i got a fridge! my food is nice and cold

Maybe just move all their stuff out on to the street and move someone else into their room. Also change the locks. When they come back claim that you don't know who they are. If it is an apartment you might have to pay off some off the neighbours to go along with the "prank".

Not a money-lending story, but definitely a crazy housemate.

I met this guy almost four years ago when I first moved out of my parents house.  I rented a room from a family friend, and this guy was as well.  He was a nice guy, and all, but a little off the reservation.  Since he was 15, he never spent more than 6 months in the same place, he had been jumping around states attending a semester of college in whatever city he came to.  He rode his bike everywhere.  End of semester comes, he moves out.

Now, a year and a half ago, he comes back to attend my uni again.  He bought some house a mile away from the uni, and claims to have fallen in love with the state.  Then one day, in the middle of the semester, he's biking to class through a "shifty" neighborhood, and is approached by three men.  The men attempt to mug him.  He decks one of them, breaks the second's elbow, and the third runs off, but not before they break four ribs and destroys his ankle.

I had a really terrible roommate who just moved out a few weeks ago. *celebration dance*

She co-signed a 1 year lease with me, and decided to skip out 6 months early, giving me 11 days notice. Then, the next day I got fired from my job (okay, not her fault, but still really bad timing). The best part is, her parents gave her several thousand dollars for Christmas but didn't "allow" her to pay rent with it, because her mother thought I was scamming her.

"But we're still friends, right?" Uhh.... what? Sorry. You lost friend privileges when you basically stole $600 from me. Not to mention she destroyed her blinds and spilled something on the nice hardwood floors that is not coming off, so I'm not going to be getting all (if any) of my damage deposit back.

my housemate takes stupid large amounts of acid (i've done acid before, but this is something else).
that might be alright by itself but it's all he ever talks about now, about his "visions" and how he can heal people by laying hands on them, which is so bloody tedious.
he once took a "heroic dose" and trashed our lounge room, wrote stuff in permanent marker on our TV, and stuck some of his own bizarre and awful artwork up in our lounge room.

he's moving to newtown next month, which is great, because we were going to have a Discussion About Drugs In The House. THAT would have been horrible, not only because i like to take drugs very occasionally, but because the dude concerned is sociopathically clever and manipulative and usually has to win every argument. so basically he would have rhetorically speared us through the guts.

Man that time when we got invited out to AIM's birthday, that was so fuckin cool, that's why I liked living with Adium, dude is cool enough to get invited out to the wack shit but is not too cool to chill with his old bud Gabbly.
Well at least he used to not be too cool for me. Mofo don't even take my calls anymore, let alone make me a plus one when MSN had that big Halloween bash.
Fuck that dude. Really. Fuck that dude.

one of my room mates is just loud and obsessive compulsive. she slams her door repeatedly each time she closes it, cleans the house every day, and wears her damn snowy boots inside. She upsets me greatly, and I have only had reason to be pissed at her once, when she woke everyone up in the house with her music and door-slamming.

But Gabbly, I like Adium.

Is it okay if I... I mean, do you think it'd be weird if I... Okay.  Look, can I have his phone number?

Liz, maybe you ought to stop judging so harshly and being a little more supportive, maybe then Gabbly wouldn't need therapy.

ElIzZyBeTh (girl damn, why do you not spell your name like that all the time? With the double zs and the y!?) girl I would give it to you if I had but I do not anymore and that is the cold hard truth when you roll with cold hard bitches like Adium. You're more than welcome to mine, as always, for a lady.

Misconception, girlfriend, why don't you quit taking your shit out on me? Go get yourself in your therapy, and quit being such a dick (sucker) yourself.

Slick, I don't need you to get my back. You go fight your own battles, you got plenty to speak. I don't need your pity.

HEY MISCONCEPTION, WHY DON'T YOU GO FELATE SOME PUPPIES. I HEAR THEY LIKE IT WHEN YOU PRACTICE ON THEM.

HEY MISCONCEPTION, I HEARD THAT THE LAST TIME YOU WENT TO A MACDONALDS THEY CLOSED UP SHOP. BECAUSE YOU ATE EVERYTHING. BECAUSE YOU ARE REALLY FAT. BECAUSE YOU EAT PUPPIES ALL THE GODDAMNED TIME.

I just wish my roommate would spend time at her boyfriend's place instead of vice versa.

Also if she would stop ashing in any convenient dish and leaving soggy butts in the kitchen sink.

Guys I get the feeling from my housemates that I am becoming That Guy that no one wants living with them. Like, I mean I clean up after myself, but it takes me two or three days to actually do it. I don't do the dishes until after a few weeks of everyone else doing them I get sick of how they just get crusted with food from being tossed straight in the dishwasher; my own dishes tend to soak with water in them from whenever it is that I finish using them to whenever the next time I go down to the kitchen is. I am up at odd hours, listen to music without headphones (which counts as loud I guess because this house echoes so goddamn much), and right now the vacuum cleaner and the brooms and stuff are out on top of some of my rugs that need cleaning that I just haven't gotten around to (they are sitting on the landing on the stairs). And sometimes I do crazy things like masturbate or have sex or whatever in my room, but I get the feeling that it makes at least the girl with whom I share the bathroom uncomfortable because she's right on the other side of the wall and, like I said, the house isn't very soundproof.

I do almost all of this in my room, though! Guys, is this ok?


I did clean the paint splatters out of my side's sink in the bathroom today, which have been there since Dec 20 and I just haven't bothered to bleach, though.
