This is a question Housemates

Catch21 says "I go out of my way to make life hell for my shitty middle-class housemates who go running to the landlord every time I break wind". Weird housemates are the gift that keep on giving - tell us about yours.

Hasn't this one...
...been done already?

www.b3ta.com/questions/housematesfromhell/ Ah, that'd be a "yes" then.

See you next week.

EDIT/AFTERTHOUGHT: One thing though, is the same thought that sprang to my mind as did the last time: What the fuck is wrong with (some of) you people? I've shared houses with folks here and there and never had problems like some of those described here, but if I had, the offender in question would have been dragged out of whatever pit they'd misguidedly made thier own and soundly beaten until they agreed to fuck the fuck off, with a promise that more beating would be thiers to not-enjoy if they decided to make something of it afterwards. Maybe there's a connection between this policy and the fact that I/we never had any problems - you decide.

repeated questions of the week
face it, it was going to start happening eventually wasn't it.

i predict the b3ta question of the week to become much like hollywood pretty soon, with many remakes of old classics because there are no new ideas left.

^^ this
And besides, it was originally posted almost 2 years ago. I am sure there are many people that have signed up in that time that have some good tales to tell.

I'm not very good at beating people up
Especially being a tiny short-arse girlie...

But BY ALL MEANS (I'd even make you cups of tea - and possibly even cakes if you gave me advanced warning) if you fancied coming round to my house and explaining in language he can understand that leaving shit (as in poo) on your bedroom walls is not an appropriate thing to do.

In the meantime small-time vengeance is the plan to keep my sanity.

In your position...
...I could spend a merry ten or fifteen minutes slamming his face against said stains until he knew (and would remember forever) what they tasted like - that should go some way to sorting out his approach to ablutionary procedure.

Be aware though, this isn't outside the realms of possibility for those of more ickle stature - all you need is to groin the fucker first then cable-tie his hands to ensure minimum resistance ;)

As a point of pedantry
This question is different, as it is simply housemates and could therefore be positive of negative... Whereas the other was housemates from hell, so surely purely negative...

Thank you.

Actually, no.
Thing is, we never adhere rigidly to the letter of a given question and instead render it to a more genaralised collection of anecdotes on the core topic - a fact bemoaned by many more often than I've been bothered to read. Indeed, in the last pretty much identical QOTW, people posted positive and negative despite the "from hell" bit, but mostly negative as they make for more interesting and in most cases, comedic reading. Exactly the same is happening in this one.


Also, the question itself, leaving the title aside for a moment, doesn't sound neutral to me. But of course this is a point made moot by my argument above.


Oh, and did I mention?


If there's anything worse than pedantry, it's weak-ass pedantry. Plenty of things worse than both, looking at it in perspective, but I'm bored now. This is happening a lot with me and B3TA recently. It's a shame.

It's getting worse isn't it.
B3ta is getting old and tired, nothing lasts forever and I think this is on it's way out. I have been reading b3ta for years and lately it has just got, well, sort of, bleugh.
Can't see it lasting much longer.
