My roomate freaked out

    So, a roomate moved into my apartment maybe 2 months ago. Very unassuming Korean med-student. He was very nice, and whatever, but very quiet and kept to himself.

    So tonight, I leave the door unlatched so I can run down to see my girlfriend who lives in the same building. When I arrive back at my apartment, the door is locked tight. I buzz the buzzer, and my roomate opens it.

    He says "Why don't you close the door." I say "I ran downstairs for a minute, what do you mean." He goes on for about 15 minutes about the laundry I left in the corner of the living room, how he can't bring his one (male) friend over because I sometimes sleep on the couch, how I left his TV on a few times and he had to turn it off, how when I do sleep on the couch he can't use the couch in the morning when he wakes up before me (which happened one day last weekend when I was sick), and how leaving the door unlatched lets cold air in which makes his fish cold. Then he demands to know what I intend to do about the situation, and says "I don't think you know someone else is living here."

    Once I realized that he had a list of grievances that he had kept to himself like a bitch until his one (male) friend convinced him to say something and then was going to demand shit and be rude about the entire situation, I began to correct everything he was saying in the most demeaning and sarcastic way possible. For instance, one part of the exchange went as follows:
    "I can't bring my friends over because you're sleeping on the couch."
    "You mean your friend?"
    "What?"
    "You mean that one guy that sometimes comes over to appraise your anime figurines?"
    "Anyway..."

    Then I insisted that it was "because I'm white," and demanded that he write up a list of grievances and proposed solutions and fed-ex them to my work address. He refused and I ended the conversation. I eventually went to my room, but not before moving all of my mobile possessions, including every lightbulb in our living room the power strip to which his VCR and TV connect and the wireless hub, into my bedroom, standing my coffee table and couches on their sides against the wall to prevent him from using them, and removing all of my cooking supplies, silverwear and china from the kitchen.


    I'll show the passive aggressive bastard...

    I hear these chumps at all hours of the night giggling in highpitched nasally voices about "that's so awesome, I can't believe you got that, it's so rare..." Either they're appraising anime figurines or dude has a virtually unknown West Indian strain of herpes simplex...

    I was going to say dude, it does sound like he's kind of anal. But it's not totally unreasonable.

    Bleh, I guess sometimes being a cunt is in your interests.

    yea, don't know how fucked up it was that he brought these complaints up--he was probably straight with everything, kind of, until the door was left open then just felt you crossed the line.

    Still, i think what you did is mad funny.

    Im going to go out on a limb here and say that his requeset were not unreasonable but he needs to be more vocal about his oppinions if your partnership is going to work.

    The problem I think was that he became too posessive about his shared property. Theres no reason why the two of you cant sit down and work this out. Both of you are acting like spoiled brats based on what I read and if you are going to make your last few month bearable changing that might not be a bad idea.

    You should be able to figure this out on your own but if you need suggestions on rules to make things work just say so.

    Itching powder on his pillow. It the meanest prank I ever pulled. Sleep deprivation + non-stop itching = psycosis.

    ^ I like what you're saying buddy, but have you visited the real world lately? Reasonable negotiating just isn't the way things get handled. Being a cunt and locking everything you own in your room. And then maybe peeing on a pillow and then maybe mocking owner of said peed on stinky pillow by making fake praising of anime noises really loud at 5 in the morning in a fake Korean accent, is much more realistic.
