Re: Need help with problematic roommate.

ouch. Too much.

I would buy him a bucket of toiletry with a nice note saying that cleaniness is next to godliness - or some such drivel. Then tag on that if he doesn't change within a week, and I mean personal hygene wise, you'll have no way but to kick him out; with the understanding that friendships have nothing to do with this.

Holly smelly a$$ batman. Showers only every other day? I won't leave the house without a shower. Does he ever change his shorts? I would buy him some Cruex and some Preparation H. A real grunter aye?

Hes a slob and he stinks. He has always been a total pig. Example. in his room, he has never vaccumed and we have been here for 6 months. he, at one time, had about 25 empty pop cans all over his room. he leaves food in there for days. that is just his room. I literaly have to yell and tell him to do **** around the house. i have to tell him to do the dishes that have been sitting there for days. hes never swept, never mopped, never cleaned the bathroom, never vaccumed the living room, even on his days off, which he is home all day.

Next thing, the big thing, his hygenie. When we first moved in together, i bought 3 bars of soap, one for each, to get us going. i lost track of mine and tossed all of them. now, this was 4 months ago, and he still has yet to buy a bar of soap. he does shower every other day but i never see him use a washcloth or even if he did, what does he use to clean himself. He is on the same bottle shampoo as the day we moved in. Anyway. he has a ass problem, thats the biggest thing of them all. Example, when he shits, there is always little flakes of **** in the toilet afterward. he took a **** once and left blood and skin on the bowl!! His ass smells so bad. Example. He comes home from work 2 days ago. he is about 10 feet from me and Tasha Standing in the doorway and we can smell his ass from the couch and he didnt walk anywhere yet. and he showered the day before. I just bought $1300 in living room furniture and it already stinks cuz of his ass. if he sits down and watches a movie, when he gets up it STINKS, like gag stinks.

I dont know how to talk to him about it. people used to call him stinky in school so i know it hurts his feelings. Any ideas on how to confront? Be straight forward? I dont want to lose $1300 in new furniture cuz of stinky-ass-syndrome.

Edit-changed name just incase
Been there. I've lived with some real slobs. This one sounds like he may have a medical condition that contributes to the problem. In any case, it is not likely he will change his habits for you. Nor is it your responsibility to "fix" him. Either he makes himself easy to live with or not.

You have a good excuse to ask him to find his own place. You have a family now and you need your own place. He should totally understand. I wouldn't say anything about hygeine. I'm sure he already knows how messy he is.

I was in a similar situation with a roomate when I got married. Funny thing was that when he finally bought his own house he had to take a roomy. Then he said to me, "you know, I never knew how good I had it. Now I know how you felt". Sweet justice.

Re: Need help with problematic roommate.

Maybe if you just tell him to shave his ass it won't hold the stink so much.

I had the messy no cleaning problem with a roommate and told him about it and we just decided that getting a maid once a week would help a lot. It worked for the most part.

Re: Need help with problematic roommate.

Damn Stegy!!!!
I'm at a loss for words.
Skin and blood on the toilet?WTF?

You will need to distance from him a bit,but do your best to stay buddies man.

Does this dude ever have dates?
If not,maybe say to him"well if you didn't smell so F'n bad you may get some booty,stinky."
Maybe he just gets "stinky booty"
