I know I live in a student flat, I can expect a bit of mess, but I don’t fancy being in a pigsty. Bit of mess being a fair bit of post-it notes floating about on the table/floor, a few empty glasses floating about (it happens), and potentially a few other things, as well as one or two empty mugs + cutlery (it’s not exactly economical to wash up one mug).

However, some of the mess in the flat, especially the washing up bit is a bit.. pathetic. One excuse I’ve had (not naming names) was it’s a student flat, mess isn’t going to go away. I wasn’t impressed just now having to empty a cold sink with tomato sauce floating, and then unblock it because a paper towel is stuck while everyone else bar one was watching a film.

Now I do try to do my bit. If I’ve left something to be washed properly, it’s usually a mug or something small that isn’t that dirty such as a fork which had just been used for pot noodles or tea spoon. As long as it’s not covered in gunk and isn’t lying around, surely that can be coped with.

While I’m on the subject, am I the only one who seems to empty the bins and recycling?! I’ve not seen anyone else do it. I’ve also seen a bin bag hanging on a chair when the bin was full. Superb isn’t it.

And just to emphasize the point, look at my room. Tidy!

Rant over. In short, how’s about tidy up?!

    I feel your pain given I live with 2 friends right now. We take it in turns to do stuff but it’s not on a rota, it’s just one of those “oh I think its my turn” style rotas. However it’s annoying to come to the kitchen to make a meal to find there are no clean plates etc.

    So yes, I know how pissed off you can get. God getting my own flat will be epic. My own boss and everyone else can screw themselves.

    Nice to know there’s a troll about. Congratulations for not succeeding.
