62 things your housemate does that pisses you off but doesn’t deserve a bitchy text

A sure way to make or break friendships

You made the exciting decision to live together in October of first year after you had known each other for a full two and a half weeks. You've looked round flats and sorted out your Wifi. You're finally an adult, and boy are you ready for it.

But although living with your mates can be the best of times, they can also be the worst. You don't want to piss them off and complain, but you also can NOT live with them for much longer. But sometimes the issues just aren't worth the drama…

We've done some research and created a list of cardinal sins that you hate your housemate for, but don't quite warrant the dreaded 'Hey guys, can we have a chat????' group text…

1. Leaving food in the plughole

Just scrape it off before you wash it, it’s not THAT hard.

2. Malting and leaving hair everywhere

3. Not buying bin bags

4. Running up and down the stairs unnecessarily loudly

Bang, bang, FUCKING BANG

5. Slamming doors unnecessarily loudly

Slam, slam, FUCKING SLAM
