That's true though.

I mean, it could be any commodity that's communally stored, but prone to differences of opinion about appropriate behaviors like drinking from the jug, or not leaving a teaspoon in the bottom to avoid rinsing it out, or ganking someone's specialty milk (like lactaid) when there's no regular instead of going to the store.

And the toxic ones will not only do rude things, but insist that they have a right to do them, and you're nuts for objecting.

And no, I didn't deal with milk issues personally, but some ex roommates told horror stories.

Now, you wanna talk about some toxic shit, get two people that disagree about something like if a bread bag should be twisted or folded under. Or whether you dip into peanut butter or jelly first when using the same utensil; or that using two utensils is better, or that you should wash utensils rather than cross contaminating. Doesn't even matter what side you're on with those, they're either/or questions and the more toxic a person is, the more you just want to either punch them, or just say "fuck it" and buy your own stash.

Not that it matters, because if you buy your own milk (or whatever), the toxic people will still fuck your shit up.

That little shit can drive two people crazy over 50 years, no doubt.

Me washing 4/5 of the dishes and leaving them to air dry drove my roommate crazy in 2 years. This considering I'm paying him an extra $50 a month for the trouble.

He's surprisingly chipper about me moving out considering that he's my brother and I've all but told him I'm gladly paying an extra $600+ premium not to deal with his shit attitude anymore

Why is leaving them to dry cause them to be angry? Did he want you drying them with a rag and putting them up right away? Cause that's lame

3

u/RollinThundaga Jul 02 '22

Yeah. Wash absolutely everything and rag dry if there isn't room in the strainer, and throws a bitch fit if I leave a pot or something at the end.

Now I'm wondering if the rag drying is why every glass he washes is streaky as hell...

u/eltanin_33 Jul 02 '22

What's the reasoning behind getting mad about?

3

u/RollinThundaga Jul 02 '22

That's how he does it, and he's got a stick up his ass, so that's the way I have to do it myself;

Despite me paying him for him to do it, and yet still pitching in here and there when he doesn't.

u/eltanin_33 Jul 02 '22

He convinced you to pay him money to 'do it correctly' while also getting you to do the dishes so they could be lazy but also bitch? Sounds toxic.

u/RollinThundaga Jul 02 '22

Nah, I'll admit I'm the lazy one to an extent in this scenario.

What actually happened was, months ago, he gave me an ultimatum to either pull my fair share as he saw it, or to pay him a $50 'maid fee' each month to do my share of the chores for me.

He apparently wasn't expecting me to pay up. But even then, I still did some chores, like doing the glasses, plates and silverware when we burned through them all and doung the cat litter when he flat out forgot about it.

Fun fact, they're his cats; when I complained about being the only one doing the cat litter he tried to blow it up into "if you don't want to help take care of the cats, then why do you pet/play with them?! I dont want to see you coming in and calling out to them like they're yours if you're gonna be like that"... this despite me explaining to him multiple times that the cats need regular interaction, or they'll get angsty and piss in random corners again.

People put spoons in milk?

6

u/southsamurai Jul 01 '22

Nah, as in the amount of a teaspoon. Like, leaving enough in it to claim "but it wasn't empty", despite it not being enough to do anything.

u/Ancient-Quiet-5764 Jul 02 '22

That's enough for coffee, which I will only leave if that's the anticipated next use.

The "toxic" person may have had a reason to drink that person's milk. Petty as it is. Dig deeper and don't believe people's violin stories. It's just milk. 🤷

u/ClumsyBarry Jul 01 '22

I guess his 18 years of education were just really bad

u/TheGordianKnot1 Jul 01 '22

I mean 18 years is a long time to be in school considering K-12 is only 13 years long....

u/hihiihigiggitigyiigi Jul 01 '22

I'm pretty sure he means leaving like a dad going out for milk

3

u/Admirable-Arm-7264 Jul 01 '22

Oh I didn’t even think about that, definitely could be

u/Deggo00 Jul 01 '22

Spelled milk?

3

u/karmiccookie Jul 02 '22

Isn't this just about the saying "why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?" Like telling girls no one is going to date you if you're willing to have sex without a commitment.

So, the guy with the gf problems would be better off buying his own "milk." Because the relationship required to get it is not worth the trouble

u/InitialDevelopment18 Jul 02 '22

Cause then they can’t take it away from you
