Messy people are more fun

We’re just so laid back

Properly messy people always have a floordrobe. It will take them hours to find anything – but it’s not messy, it’s ‘organised chaos’ and they “definitely know where everything is”.

Even so – they’re more fun and make better friends. This is why.

You never judge

Tidy people nag all the time. It’s a constant stream of passive aggressive notes or passive aggressive WhatsApp messages from your tidy housemate telling you to do the dishes, take your clothes/shoes/books out of the living room, and can you please actually take the bins out when it’s your turn? When you’re messy you never judge anyone, because they could probably judge you more. Haven’t washed up your plate from last night? That’s cool, a few days never hurt anyone and I haven’t done mine either.


You’re the life and soul of the party

The only reason anyone is messy is because they are just too busy to be tidy.  You’ve just got in from work and you have 30 mins before you have to be at drinks. That pretty much just gives you time to change and grab a bite. And you know those clothes are going on the floor.

You’re probably a workaholic

Being messy doesn’t mean you’re lazy, in fact you’re probably the opposite. What with working a 60-hour working week, making an appearance at every party, turning up to every practice for your sports team, and still making time for the gym, no wonder you’re a little messy. Who has the time to clean?

You have loads of friends

You’re so laid back everybody wants to be your friend. When you have a house party it doesn’t matter if things get a little rowdy: your house was messy in the first place. And as you’re so unflustered by mess, you won’t care if the mate you’re hanging out with hasn’t had a chance to tidy their room. Yours is worse.

They're happy because they know they don't have to clean up

You’re fun

You don’t have the same neuroses as those who are spick and span. You don’t worry about a little bit of mess on a surface because you know it doesn’t hurt anyone. And that makes you 10x more fun than tidy people, who worry constantly about what people think of them, about all the bacteria that could be growing if a surface isn’t wiped down every five minutes.

You’re the best kind of housemate

You aren’t crazy so you won’t peer into housemates’ rooms without permission. You’ll never be the psycho housemate who leaves notes everywhere telling people to clean. And when everything really is getting too messy, as soon as you’re in the mood the entire house will sparkle. Because when you tidy, you bring a whole new meaning to the word.
