7 Reasons Why Your College Roommates Hate You

Posted: Updated:

The other half of the battle involves secretly tampering with their stuff... (I'm just kidding. I don't endorse tampering. Please don't write angry comments, or in any way corrupt your roommate's Captain Crunch.) And feel free to add your own comments on why some roommates can't help hating each other.
