7 things never to tell your roommate

Just because you're sharing 450 square feet with one or more roommates doesn't mean you have to share everything.  Some things no roommate wants to hear include:

  1. I log in under your Facebook account and creep on people.
  2. I hooked up with someone in your bed. 
  3. I use your expensive shampoo and refill it with cheap stuff. 
  4. Saks did deliver your new Chloe sandals and I wear them when you are out of town. 
  5. My girlfriend has bed bugs and is moving in with us while they clean her place. 
  6. I haven't paid the cable bill in months. 
  7. The goldfish you think you have had for 9 years is only 2 weeks old - I flushed Flounder while I was drunk.
