inconsiderate roommate? HELP!!!

PanitchanokePanitchanoke 3 replies2 threads New Member
I'm currently a freshman in a famous art university in the west coast, and my entire semester is ruined because of my roommate. She is so loud, arrogant, rude, and ghetto. she think she can pick a fight with anyone just because she's from NewYork. Approximately three weeks ago she got into a fight with this gay guy who live across our room and he has this nail and bite marks all over his neck and arms. At first i try to be okay with her but all her ghetto behaviors are just driving me insane. She alway has her ghetto music playing on her speaker and the speaker is on like 24/7. She has it on even when she's asleep and i has to sleep with that blasting sound. Also she would roll her weed up in our dorm room and sometime smoke in it our share bathroom. Mid semester she start accusing my friends and I of stealing her stuffs but ever since i got here i never once touch her stuff. Getting accuse of stealing stuff are big deal for me, never once in my life have i ever been accuse of taking other's belonging; partly because i came from a really rich part of town where most people are well raise. There's no point for me to steal, my parents are very wealthy. She went through my belonging thinking I took whatever she loses and don't even have the decency of putting everything back into place. She think its okay to use my iron and ironing board without my permission and just leave it out on the floor after. She once ate my food i kept in the room, she ask me afterward if she could have some but didn't apologize once. Last month while i was over in my friend's room my laptop got water damage, my roommate and her friends are the only one who was in the room that night. My laptop is broken and whoever knocked the water over it got away, because the housing wouldn't call my roommate and her friends in for an investigation. My parents payed a good amount of money for me to stay in the dorm and I can't even sleep in my own room because of the loud music and because I'm scare of my roommate (she got a knife hidden in her comb's handle, which she threaten to use it against that gay guy she got into fight with). Maybe I came out as too nice so she took advantage of that, because according to her i was her best roommate. I've heard stories about her previous roommates, one accuse my roommate of trying to poison her and the other one got accuse by my roommate of stealing her cloths and sell it online (her sense of fashion wasn't that good so i really don't know what to believe) so to get back to her previous roomie my roommate cut up the girl's credit cards. Right now I'm really paranoid that she will do the same to me.

    also she has her friends over a lot, and more than once i came in to see them laying and eating on my bed; and just touching my stuff...my stuff. i mean i get it that i have the bottom bunk but they should at least have some respect for me. The list just go on and on...never end. I'm really stressed out right now, finals are coming up. I just don't want to deal with her right now.

    What action have you taken up to now? It's already May.

    Have you talked to your RA? When you do, don't bring up the part that you're from a really rich part of town and that your parents are very wealthy. It's irrelvant and comes off as really arrogant.

    I'm confused as to why you're posting this now, you must be in finals already? No? The semester is over. If you really need to address it, I would refrain from using "ghetto" as an adjective.

    Tell this to a guidance counselor, but omit all the "I'm rich, she's poor" bs.

    So don't. If they're on your bed, tell them to get off. Otherwise, coexist. Less than a month to go.

    Make sure you aren't living with her next year. Minimize time spent in your room for the next few weeks until the semester is done. This rant would have made more sense earlier in the year.
