For most people, at sometime or another, homelife means sharing space with roommates… and we all know it isn't always pretty. Take this example, for instance: "I had a roommate who was totally awesome. I loved her dearly then and love her now. She had a boyfriend who I actually really liked, too. Then only thing I disliked was his propensity to climb on top of the refrigerator and perch there, bird-like, in the middle of the night. For reals."

Or how about:

But I could hear the rat squeaking in its box and one night I got really paranoid when he wasn't home and shoved a bunch of books in front of his door to cover the small gap by the floor. He came home drunk and I was in bed, and I heard him kicking the books around and screaming at me. We got in a huge argument and I basically put my foot down and said the rat had to go.

Those are excerpts from two of ten truly terrible roommate stories collected together in one terrifying collection on Jezebel. Click over to read through (if you dare) and cast your vote for "your favorite roommate horror story".
