The Joy of Roomates, via Apartment Therapy

Living with other people can be…challenging, and Apartment Therapy shares some interesting stories and websites detailing people’s experiences with roommates from hell. It’s an entertaining read, from their link to a livejournal community called Housemate Horror to their own slightly more diplomatic way of handling roommate relations (“1. Don’t leave notes or send emails – always talk in person. 2. Discuss ground rules and expectations when you move in, or, preferably, before you move in. 3. Conquer Dish Mountain before it turns into Dish Mountain Range.”)

In a similar vein, some of the inter-roommate notes over at www.passiveaggressivenotes.com will make you feel a lot better about your own roommates’ vicissitudes!
