We all know about flat Whatsapp groups. They include that one person who tries to have good banter and fails horribly, the one who always takes control in organising nights out, and more specifically that one person who whinges about keeping the kitchen clean. If you’re reading this and don’t think your flat Whatsapp group has one of these – well, you’re probably that person.

It wouldn’t really be a student kitchen if it weren’t for the enormous mountain of plates and cutlery which end up piled beside the sink. Even the clean dishes on the drying side of the sink still remain piled up and don’t get put away.

If university teaches you anything, it’s that if you’re determined enough you can always push last night’s pizza takeaway box further down into the already full bin so you won’t have to take out the rubbish.
