Top 10 tweets about flatmates that’ll make you appreciate yours

It’s often said that you never really know someone until you’ve lived with them. It’s safe to say that our flatmates are the sort of people who see us at our best and at our worst in life. Our drunkest and our sloppiest. Our most stressed and most blissful. And whilst we’re not trying to put you off house-sharing, we couldn’t help but share these flatmate horror stories. Honestly though, who even are some of these people?

We love us some entertaining flatmate stories so in case you missed our recent Flatmate Horror Stories post or our 10 Tips To Make Sure Living With Pets And Flatmates Works Out, feast your eyes on this flatmate’s demands.

We discovered Twitter user @rxdazn who posted a list of roommate requirements to someone who had innocently expressed interest in his available room. Among the main stipulations was the fact that the new housemate is not even allowed to be there!

“I need you to be out of the flat on weekdays during normal working hours (9-5) because I work from home 5 days a week and I need the place to myself,” he writes.

Also not allowed? “laughing out loud after 11pm” and “cooking in this flat before 8.30am and after 11pm”.

“I don’t like people spending a lot of time cooking in general,” the person adds. “If you ONLY eat cooked/fried meals because you don’t know how to make a sandwich, and you hang around the kitchen for hours a day (and I do mean HOURS) or spend every weekend preparing elaborate meals and baking, etc, this isn’t a place for you.”

This is not even the worst of it. He goes on to say “If all you eat is canned beans and cooked lentils and drink beer, you’re not my kind of flatmate. I need someone a little more sophisticated here.”

And here the rest of us are being contented with the kind of roomie who just cleans up after himself and pays the rent on time.
