My roommates are driving me crazy. They are not terrible, but EXTREMELY particular about everything. I am the opposite. I make sure to always clean up after myself when I cook, and when I’m home (which isn’t that much) I’m usually in my room doing school. But it seems like they always come up with something to nitpick about, or are creating rules or complaining about something to me. They are just so freaking annoying.
Best way to deal? I feel like I’ve gone above and beyond to get along with them. I feel like they’re always upset about something and I’m just over it.
If you are new roommates, they are probably just testing waters with you. If their not new the beat them, all of them. No actually that is a bad idea. I have a really weird coping mechanism that I learn when I got heat sickness once. Keep a bottle of water with you everywhere you go. If they start annoying you, start drinking water. It gives you something to focus on other than how annoyed you feel plus it keeps you hydrated. Chug it if you must. It will distract you, and give you something to do with your hands. Starting a fight probably wont do much good and it will just make everyone dislike you.
