Question: What’s the best way to cure a hangover?
Episode 3 Winner
Congrats to Sara for Episode 3’s Best Answer. Here’s her answer:
If you’ve ever had roommates, then more than likely you’ve experienced roommates from hell once or twice in your life. The problem with getting rid of roommates like that is that they have keys to your home, they know where you live, and they know what you do. The last thing you want to do with a roommate from hell is to make things worse than they already are. So what is a person to do? You have to get rid them but make them think that they are leaving because THEY WANT to leave. That is the trick. Now, it does take a bit of finesse and maybe a little bit of acting ability to carry this off.
The smart and funny things you can do:
1- Trash the room when your roommate’s not around. Then leave and wait for your roommate to come back. When he/she does, walk in and act surprised. Say, “Uh-oh, it looks like THEY were here again.
2- Eat lots of Lucky Charms. Pick out all the yellow moons and stockpile them in the closet. If your roommate inquires, explain that visitors are coming, but you can’t say anything more, or you’ll have to face the consequences again.
3- Keep a tarantula in a jar for three days. Then give away the tarantula. If your roommate asks, say, “Oh, he’s around here somewhere.”
4- When you walk into the room, look at your roommate in disgust and yell, “Oh, you’re here!” Walk away yelling and cursing.
5- Watch “Psycho” every day for a month. Then act excited every time your roommate goes to take a shower.
6- Have “nightmares” every night and scream loudly, remembering to sometimes throw your roommate’s name into the mix. You can even try getting out of bed to do some “sleep walking.” Never acknowledge this if your roommate asks about it.
7- If you and your roommate actually share a room, tell him or her that you must sleep with the lights on. Possible excuses include night terrors, the buggy-man, acne, you used to live in Alaska, you hate the environment, you sleep with your eyes open, etc.
8 -Become needy of your roommate. Always ask where he or she is going when your roommate leaves the room, even if it is to go to the bathroom. You can also try calling continuously and asking him or her, “Well, where are you now?” or “Are you almost home?”
The legal ways:
1- Evaluate who signed the lease. If you are the only one who signed it, this will make it much easier than if you both co- signed it. If you are both co-tenants, you can still file a complaint to your landlord – for example, stating that your roommate does not pay the rent on time!
2- Sit your roommate down and talk to him directly about the issues you have been having with him. Give him at least 30 days notice to move out and find his own place.
3- File an eviction notice to your local courthouse if your roommate refuses to move. Or else enlist your landlord to help you evict this roommate.
