Roommates Issues

Roommate issues often arise in college or university settings where we often end up living with somebody we are not that familiar with. For example, let’s take a look at the following situation.

Hey, have you seen my fish sticks? I thought I had some left in the freezer. Also my beer are gone too.


No dude, I haven’t seen your fish sticks. I don’t even like fish. I think Tom had some friends over last night. He may have drank your beer. You should go ask him.


No matter who is right or who is wrong, we should always approach the situation calmly. In most cases, problems can be resolved without being argumentative. Dealing with roommates are part of the growing up process. If the friction persists, you should be able to find new roommate that will give you less problems. Good luck!
