These Roommate Horror Stories Will Make You Want To Live On Your Own Forever


Leaving your parent’s house and moving into your own place can be one of the most exciting, liberating, stressful and difficult experiences you can go through, but it all depends on one person: your roommate.

Just like that, your roommates hold the power to turn this liberating experience into your worst nightmare and cause you to go running back to your parents’ house. Don’t believe us? Check out these roommate horror stories…

Roommate Horror Story #1

“My roommate was running an illegal massage parlor out of our dorm room. She would have all of these old men in and out of our dorm room all the time and I kinda knew what she was doing but I decided to mind my own business. One of the men that came over ended up being an undercover cop and arrested her. It turns out everyone living in our suite dorm was under investigation for a couple of months and she ended up confessing to prostitution. In the end she ended up hating me because she thought I had snitched, even though she was posting Craigslist ads and wasn’t even being careful about it. Smh.”

Well DAMN, that roommate story escalated quickly.


So happy I never had a roommate problem like this.

Roommate Horror Story #2

When we all first moved in together, I’m talking about like a month into it, my roommate told me that his family was going through some stuff so his mom was going to live with us. I said it was totally cool. I mean if my mom was going through something of course I’m going to have her stay with me. The problem was that it ended up not just being his mom… It was his mom, his two sisters, and the two kids of one of the sisters. So instead of only us three living in the apartment, it was eight of us in a three bedroom, one bathroom apartment. And they ended up staying for 6 MONTHS instead of just a couple of weeks like my roommate had said. It was a nightmare.”

OH…EM…GEE. This would’ve driven me nuts.

This +1 invitation turned into a +20, just like it happens at most Latino family parties. ????

Roommate Horror Story #3

“My roommate literally gave the key to the apartment to random strangers. I’d walk out of my room and boom…another guy I didn’t know just watching TV. She also brought stray cats home. Filled up our place with fleas. ????”

SMH. Unacceptable.


I would’ve moved out in a heartbeat if there were stray cats and stray people in our apartment.

Roommate Horror Story #4

“I lived with two boy roomies (I’m a girl). And everything was fine until one day I realized that one of them had been using my stuff. I found out in the grossest way… My body soap was full of hairs.”

That is just plain DIS-GUS-TING.


Pro tip: Buy a shower caddy, hide it under your bed and only take it to the bathroom when you’re going to use it.

Roommate Horror Story #5

“In my college dorm room, my roommate’s bed was only 3 feet away from my bed. At the time, I didn’t have any classes until 10am or later each day. However, my roommate had a 7am class. And every damn morning her annoying iPhone alarm clock would go off around 5am. You know, that loud, annoying, horn-like-sound alarm. The alarm would wake me up every damn morning, but since she was a deep sleeper, she wouldn’t hear the alarm and it would keep ringing for 20 minutes straight. But this wasn’t the only problem I had with this roommate. Every time she was on her monthly menstrual cycle, she would go into the bathroom to change her pad and then she would toss her old, bloody pad into the trashcan that was in our room instead of tossing it in the bathroom trashcan. Even worse, is that she would leave her pad lying all wide and open in the trashcan. She wouldn’t even roll it up.”

That is just horrifying.


I would hate to have a roommate like that.

Roommate Horror Story #6

“So when I was in college I was a starving student. I hardly had any money for food and I didn’t have a car so I had to take the bus. And one day I remember I was so damn hungry during my lecture. And I remembered that I had a Twinkie in my dorm, sitting on my desk. I couldn’t even focus in class because I was thinking about how I was going to eat my Twinkie as soon as I got to my dorm.

As soon as my class was over I rushed to my dorm, all out of breath. And when I got there my Twinkie was GONE. So I asked my roommate Wanda, ‘Wanda did you take my Twinkie? I had a Twinkie on my desk and it’s not there anymore. Did you eat my Twinkie?’ And she said, ‘Nah, why would I eat your Twinkie?’ So I go back to my desk and then I see the damn Twinkie wrapper in my trash bin.”

If someone ate my food without asking, this is how I would react:


That’s just something you don’t mess with – someone’s food.

Roommate Horror Story #7

“So one day I was minding my own damn business, studying and doing my work on my desk, when suddenly my roommate grabs her cup of water and just throws all of the water onto my textbook. Mind you, this textbook cost over $100. I obviously got mad and started yelling at her, asking her why she would do that. And then my other roommate stepped in and started yelling at her as well. But this roommate of mine was far more aggressive, so she started chasing after her around our apartment until she chased her outside of our place. We locked her out and it was pouring rain outside, and she was only wearing her shorts and sports bra. She begged us to let her back inside but we waited about half an hour before we let her back in.”

Well at least this roommate was able to get her sweet revenge. ????


Moral of the story: Never mess with a broke college students’ textbooks.

Roommate Horror Story #8:

“My roommate was talking to a guy I think she found on Yik Yak. He was really sketch, but she was still into talking to him. A couple of days later after I found out that they were hanging out in our dorm, there were certain hours throughout the day that I couldn’t be around. One day I came to my dorm and my sheets and comforter were not on my bed. I was very confused. I sat down where my desk was and I was about to start working when I noticed a wet condom in my waste basket. Yup. She had sex on my bed because he didn’t want to climb up to her top bunk. She baptized that bed before I did.”

That is so gross. ????


I would been so disgusted and upset if this ever happened to me.

Roommate Horror Story #9

“My roommate had this thing where she NEVER warned me when her boyfriend was in our room. They’d lock the door, so whenever I opened it with my key I was always immediately greeted with the scene of him scrambling to get his clothes on and her frantically trying to cover him up with her blankets. This happened more than once. Not only that, but even when I was in the room and he came to visit her, he would lock the door after coming in every single time. It always creeped me out.”

That is SO annoying.


I would definitely kick the guy out the room on the spot if that ever happened to me.

Roommate Horror Story #10

“My roommate in college in Miami decided to stack our beds like bunk beds. He got more sex than a rabbit in heat and never cared that I was in our out of the room. It started any time on any day. I put up with it for 2 years. In other words, I’ve witnessed more live porn than any other student on campus and I think I should be awarded an Associates Degree on that subject!” ????

This person put up with their roommate for TWO WHOLE YEARS? I would not be able to handle that.


That roommate had no shame at all.

Jenny Solares Is One IG Creator Everyone Needs To Follow

A year in quarantine has led so many of us to doom scroll and get lost in social media. As a result, some people are getting more recognition and one person who should be getting your attention is Jenny Solares, or @es_jenny_solares on Instagram.

Jenny Solares is here with the relatable content we all want.

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Jenny • Sad Girl (@es_jenny_solares)

The Guatemalan content creator knows what the people want to see. How many times have you heard someone say that they like a woman who can eat? Well, as Jenny urges, prove it, y’all. Take your lady out and get her all of the food that she wants. Let’s go!

Now, that’s how you add salsa to someone’s food. If you didn’t already think this way when adding salsa to your tacos, you definitely will now. It’s just impossible not to.

We also love seeing her collaborating with Estefania Saavedra, a fellow Latina creator. A rising tide lifts all boats so we appreciate seeing these Latinas working together.

Solares is even creating brand new identities.

Cholas will forever have a place in our hearts. We know cholas. We love cholas. We are related to cholas. Solares’ creation of the glola is truly a work of art. Just because you’re a chola doesn’t mean you can’t love glitter and colors.

She’s even got some of the Covid humor in check.

There are going to be so many school assignments about this year in the coming years. Kids will be learning about the time the world stood still as we battled an out-of-control virus. It is going to be us having to tell the little ones about that time and it’s going to be rough. Get ready to reliving everything we have been dealing with for the last year.

On top of all of the comedy, Solares is ready to show her fans some real love for their support.

“Thank you all for letting me be me. Thank you for appreciating my silliness, my craziness, my songs, my dances, my imperfections,” Solares tells her fans in a year-end video. “Thank you for letting me be myself. This year was full of so much sadness, uncertainty, frustration, and, for a lot of people, loneliness. Thank you all for not letting me feel that loneliness.”

Thank you, Jenny. Your comedy has been a bright spot for so many during an incredibly hard and sad year.

Woman Who Watched Her Mother Die Before Her Eyes While At Sea As A 9-Year-Old Reunited With Her Rescuers

Fierce

Woman Who Watched Her Mother Die Before Her Eyes While At Sea As A 9-Year-Old Reunited With Her Rescuers

May 20, 1986, started out for Desireé Rodriguez and her family as an idyllic morning.

At the time, Desireé’s father (a 30-year-old construction worker by the name of Thomas Rodriguez) had taken her, her mother, and sister as well an aunt and uncle out to Catalina Island for a day of sailing. The plan was to go out, fish, and bask in the summer sun before heading back home. In the evening, just as they were headed home the family was impacted by a dense fog. Desireé and her 5-year-old sister Trisha awoke from a nap on the boat to calls from her father to abandon ship and within minutes the entire family was lost at sea. Out in the water and away from their boat that had capsized.

 The family of six was stranded in the chilly Pacific water for hours and Desireé watched as her father first went to swim for rescue and never returned. In the hours that slowly stretched by Desireé witnessed the death of her sister, her mother, her uncle and then her aunt.

Decades have passed since her family’s accident but Desireé has lived to tell of the story thanks to the two men who rescued her.

In a recent piece by The New York times, Desireé was reunited with the two men who were remarkably able to save her after she spent a nightmarish 20 hours in the ocean.

Only 9-years-old at the time of the tragic events, Desireé recalls believing that her father would return with help when he first swam away from the boat. “My dad was like the superhero to me. I actually thought he would get help,” Desireé explained before calling the desperate hours that followed. After watching her family members die, she found herself all alone.

“At that point, I just kind of made the decision, I need to get away from this boat,” Desireé recalled to the New York Times. “I need to swim away, somewhere else. … Where? I don’t know.”

Just when Desireé decided to give up hope, the skipper of a commercial sportfishing boat spotted her orange life jacket in the water.

The boat’s first officer leapt into the water and fished Desireé out of the water. Desireé was ultimately transported back to San Pedro and never saw her rescuers again.

“I don’t think I would have lived, I’ll be honest with you. I think at that point, I was just kind of done,” Desireé explained in a recent interview about the incident. According to an article at the time that described the incident, Desireé had suffered no major physical injuries and was “in good spirits.” She left the hospital in San Pedro the next time.

“I had even hoped that my dad did make it somewhere,” Desireé explained of her thinking of the time. “Maybe he is living on an island and just got amnesia and didn’t know that he has a family. You know, you always have hope. But you get older, and reality sets in, and you’re like, OK. He didn’t make it.”

Paul Strasser and Mark Pisano, the two men who rescued her, ultimately earned commemorative plaques for their bravery from Mayor Tom Bradley. Desireé Rodriguez, now Desireé Campuzano, was adopted by another aunt and uncle who raised her. She went onto attend junior college in Fullerton, built herself a career in criminal justice, married and had a son. Still, she always wondered what had happened to the men who saved her.

It wasn’t until the COVID-19 pandemic that Strasser and Pisano came into contact with Philip Friedman who launched a podcast about his hobby as a fisherman.

“Friedman Adventures” which launched this past December, shares incredible stories from fishermen. Ine one episode Pisano spoke about the 1986 rescue.

“It’s kind of a weird story, kind of like there are some supernatural qualities,” Pisano explained of the experience on the podcast.

Friedman felt motivated to unite the two rescuers and Desireé. Ultimately a friend of Desireé’s heard the episode when it aired and made the connection. He reached out to Desireé and then Friedman and ultimately she and her rescuers were reunited.

“I was nervous at first,” Desireé said of meeting Strasser and Pisano “just seeing [the] guys and putting kind of finalization to the ‘what happened.’” The three were finally reunited during another episode of the podcast.

“I feel like she’s sort of our daughter, in a way, because we brought her back to life,” Strasser said during their reunion. “Even though we never knew each other.”
