I am so thrilled you decided to live with me starting June 1 2012 and ending June 1 2013. I am looking forward to spending time with you, it will be a lot of fun having you as a roommate. Before you move in, I always like to discuss and heavily define some roommate responsibilities. I do this NOT because I am crazy, but solely due to the fact that I have had roommates in the past who do not know how to be decent roommates and are quite frankly lazy and semi-cheap. I feel a sense of responsibility when taking on the role of being a roommate and I hope the other reciprocates equally. I always write out of list of items each of us need to purchase in the next year because I am a very organized person and I feel it is much easier to see on paper. Once you read this over and agree with the following, please date and sign this document. Furthermore, please let me know if you have ANY questions and I will be happy to answer or modify any of your needs/concerns. You can contact me via email (
Can't wait to live with you!

HE RESPONDS AFTER THE BREAK...
While this has absolutely nothing to do with fashion, someone in the ArmHe forwarded this Roommate Responsibilities Contract and He could not pass up the opportunity to share this with the world. He is all for spiting things with roommate so it works out to be financially fair, but if I have to buy you sheets for your bed and share half my Snapple with you, there is a problem.
1) Any woman who says she is NOT Crazy, is 10000% a crazy bitch.
2) Love how this chick calls her past roommates "semi-cheap" but cannot be bothered with buying personal items herself
3) He has never met two girls that use the same shampoo, hell you go into a girl bathroom, its like a freakin Duane Reade, each girl has like 10 different soaps, shampoos and conditioners. Maybe cheapo here enjoys Costco Generic Shampoo, but there is no way another other girl agrees to this.
4) Bug Repellent for Apartment - Do the cockroaches have to sign a similar agreement?
5) Laundry Detergent - Please, you know laundry gets sent out to be done
6) As your roommate I am commanded to buy 4 bottles of wine a week?
7) Hand soap - has to be lemon or vanilla? If peach is on sale, that's against the rules?
8) Tampons - You need Costco sized tampon? What kind of wild flow do you have going on?
9) Paper products - Somehow Solo cups and plastic cups made it into this category, but napkins did not?
10) Body wash? Does the roommate need to buy you a loofah too?
Further proof women are crazy. Good luck finding a roommate.
