Dumb roommates

A couple weeks ago my roommate and fiance (who doesn't own a room but is over 24/7) didn't do their dishes for a while and stacked them up. I don't really care that much as long as I have enough dishes to eat my own food and have room in one sink to clean by dishes out. It's annoying trying to wash a big pot when you can't even stick it under the faucet.

So I stack all their dishes on one side. Douchebag roommate comes home and gets pissed off because I had the "guts to stack his dishes". I listened to his BS, replied back with a smart ass comment, and went back to studying.

Week later the situation repeats itself and try to explain why I did it. Of course he is too dumb to understand and gets "furious" again. Later he does his dishes and runs the dish washer half full. My clean dishes are sitting right on top of it, and he refuses to put them in there. I don't mind putting someones hand washed dishes in the dish washer, but I guess he is too much of an ass to do so. But that's not really a big deal, the wastefulness of water, soap, and electricity is what ticks me off. That along with his girlfriend using our washer and dryer 24/7 and turning the AC down to 60 so his fat ass doesn't sweat pisses me off as well.

Finally thought he and his bitch were learning until a few hours ago. The dish washer was near full, but I waited to start it so douchebag could put the few dishes he used in it. Well while my other roommate and I are at the store, the dumb bitch puts all my unclean dishes in the cabinets, puts her stuff in, and runs it half full. There is no way she can say they were clean since she left half the other stuff in there that I used but down own.

How should I proceed? If she removed mine because she thought they were clean, it's going to verify her lack of intelligence. If she removed mine to piss me off, I'm going to talk to the apartment management and tell them we have an "illegal" roommate.

Worst of all she ate a quarter of a gallon of my girl friend's ice cream...at 11 in the morning.

I will probably get a little flak from this but... try being nice? Load the dishwasher full everytime you use it. Perhaps they'll catch on.

It works great with my roommates... however, I don't mind spending 10-15 minutes (at most) to do it.

Sounds like a situation I was in while in college. We lived in a Townhouse, 3 rooms with 2 people each, 1 with 3 people. We decided to just torture the kid by doing stuff that bothered him. He hated it, we laughed. We 'broke into' his and his roomates room, just to annoy him (didn't steal anything, just opened the door because it bothered him). Dishes still piled up and so did the trash... It was college, everyone was mildly immature, and no one cared afterwards... was more entertaining than it could have been.

No, it was a half gallon. She had it sitting in there for about a month and one day the behemoth ate half of it. She's a friend that is a girl..not a girlfriend.

I try to be nice and fair, but they never catch on. They take everything too personally and try to enact "revenge", which ends up making themselves look like asses. I'm not going to clean their dishes every time especially when they make no notion to do it themselves. I will do some of theirs if they aren't too dirty, but I'm not cleaning half a load of dishes covered in grease and old pizza.

Jump up and down vigorously and see if you can get your testicles to drop.

They have a whole word for that, and it's pretty simple really:

quarter of a gallon

Why thank you. How should I ever repay you for this wonderful piece of information you have bestowed upon me?

PayPal him a quarter of a dollar.

how do you have both a dish washer and a dish problem?

it's not rocket science -- rinse off your dishes, stick them in the dish washer, and whoever fills the dish washer or uses the last clean dish (whichever happens first) flicks the switch to do a load. the next person who happens to be in the kitchen when they're done puts them away.

Break their dishes so they realize they need you're clean dishes to eat off.

This only works if more than 2 roommates are mature
