Some people really hit the jackpot with great roommates, while others…others get the short end of the stick.
I’ve been in both situations and let me tell you, the bad ones are the ones I remember vividly like it was yesterday.
Let’s enjoy some funny and accurate tweets about having roommates.
1. A whole lot of options.
I still think there should be a Grammy category for "Best to Play 438 Times in a Row as a Declaration of War on a Roommate"

my roommate just told my other roommate that she's the worst roommate ever. That puts me in the clear!!

3. You’re outta here!
My roommate just described an acapella performance as "one of the best things [he'd] ever seen," and I changed the locks.

4. No way to tell, really.
great day to play the classic game, Is My Roommate Dead or Does He Just Have Off for This Weird Holiday and Therefore Has Been Sleeping for 12 hours

5. Life lessons.
“i’m so unbothered, i’m so unbothered, y’all be so pressed while i’m raising daughters” – a beyoncé lyric about me watering my roommate’s plants while she’s away

6. Good advice.
My roommate just asked me "how boiling" water has to be before it cooks something. I answered, "7".

7. The dog probably didn’t mind.
my roommate just tried to make a bread bowl by hollowing out an entire baguette and he spilled clam chowder on my dog

8. Living alone is PARADISE.
How the fuck do people live alone? My roommates been gone for a week and I’ve started to have full conversations with my dogs after a full bottle of wine. Then getting upset when they don’t answer me. Like all I wanna know is who’s a good boy.

10. Sounds like a smart fella.
DUDE my roommate just cut his hand open cutting onions because he put on sunglasses so he wouldn't cry as much, but HE JUST COULDNT SEE

11. The water bill’s on you this month.
My roommate just finished her 1.5 hour shower and apologized, saying it was "soooo theraputic".
Honestly, actual therapy would be cheaper.
