40 People Shared The Moment They Realized They’re Living With A ‘Monster’

What would you do if you have a monster roommate? We’re not talking about Godzilla-type monsters. We’ll be using the name ‘monster’ to describe sloven people who enjoy a messy home. Are there even such people, you may ask. Truth is, there are lots of them around. In fact, we have testimonials from unfortunate people who have messy, disorganized monsters as their roommates.

Living with a roommate isn’t as fun as you think.  Comedy sitcoms such as Roommates (2009) and New Girl (2011) typically depict the exciting life of living with flatmates. But fiction is a far cry from reality. If you want to know how it feels living with someone else under one roof, ask those who’ve actually experienced it. Whether they’re living with their partners, friends, colleagues, or flatmates, people have their own stories to tell about their roommates. While having to share a home with someone else has its own benefits, it’s not all about rainbows and butterflies. There will be some conflicts and disputes along the way. Contrasting habits and incompatible preferences will become more evident as the days go by.

So, if you’re a neat freak, you’ll definitely don’t want to have a slob for a roommate. But if you’re unfortunate enough to have one, you just need to cope with it. Could you live with someone who hoards unnecessary stuff for no reason? Or could you last a day with someone who has no hygiene standards? Living with a monster roommate is indeed a living hell for tidy people. While some people may lose their minds seeing a messy house, these people choose to share their misfortunes for comical purposes. Here are some photos revealing what it’s like living with a monster roommate. And don’t forget to share your own experiences with unruly roommates on the comment section below.
