Re: Roommate from Hell

When he's not home, just start taking his blongings and lathing them down to nothing one by one.

Seriously though, that thing's not that big. Why doesn't he keep it in his room?

Here's the way out of your situation... You, or one of your other good roomates needs to "come out" (hey, take one for the team!) and start hitting on this guy. Repeatedly and constantly. When he complains, you guys all have to stick together, call him a homophobe and insist the rest of you are all open minded... If you really want to get him out fast, start regularly making out in the livingroom with your other roommates.
i'm not sure how making out with his roommates helps his situation??

He's probably smart enough not to want a lathe in his room.

Re: Roommate from Hell

That is about the funniest picture I have ever seen. And even funnier to me is I have no idea why it's so funny.

SLOTD sir! I'm crying I'm laughing so hard.

Just print up that picture and carry it around in your wallet. Pull it out if anyone ever tries to take your roommate's side or doubts his douchey-ness.

Simplicity. There's nothing fancy or pompous, it's just a lathe in the living room.

After reading every [censored] update of this thread I finally decided to find out what a lathe actually is and I must say that is [censored] funny.

He put a lathe in the living room? Man, you don't want to go crossing this guy. He'll be making you a coffin before you know it.

I would ebay this to someone. I don't know what model you have in your living room, but you should get some good dough.

These things are expensive.

Hey man, improvise. Build the living room around the lathe. Make an industrial-type motif.

Re: Roommate from Hell

My sophomore year roommate was:

-Schizophrenic
-Paranoid
-Alcoholic
-A sleepwalker/talker

In his sleep, he crawled over to my bed (we had lofted beds), punched me in the face, then lept off the bed (5'5" tall), landed on his side on the tile, then ran out of the room screaming "THE MOUNTAIN LION IS GOING TO EAT ME."

This is only one of many stories.

So, in short, I don't want to hear it.

All would have been better if you bought a lathe.

Re: Roommate from Hell

Let's all really be honest here. This is less about the [censored] roommate and that the rest of us are jealous that WE don't have lathes in our living rooms.

Re: Roommate from Hell

(snip photo of lathe in living room)

I can't say I was expecting that.


Talk to the other two guys, and agree to pony up the cancellation fee. Then once you are all in agreement, go tell the lather that you guys are no longer interested in living with him, and that you are breaking the lease. No cost to him, you'll pay the fee. Break the lease, move elsewhere. Voila.

Other options are having a come-to-jesus talk with him, or asking him to leave. You might want to see what the cancellation fee is, then offer to just give that amount to the lather for him to leave and have his name taken off the lease. That way you get to stay there, he has an actual cash incentive to leave, etc. That mitigates bad feelings and also gives him incentive not to screw up anything in the place before he leaves - he'll want his money.

You almost certainly can't just kick him out, if his name is on the lease.

Re: Roommate from Hell

Throw the Dirty dishes in his room, throw any mess he doesnt clean up in the common area into his room, hide your liquor (mini fridge in room works), tell him to [censored] off about the job thing. The loudness thing, I dont have a problem with, when you havve roomates, certain times (usually during the day, and early evening) you are allowed to be loud. no big deal. Buy a big salami, or cheese log, and everytime you guys want some use the lathe to slice a little off. Meat and Cheese always tastes better when you take some off while its spinning at a million RPMs.
