I’VE BEEN LIV­ING WITH TWO MATES FOR SIX MONTHS AND SMALL THINGS THEY DO HAVE STARTED TO AN­NOY ME. SHOULD I STAY OR GO?

GQ (Australia) - - THE SOURCE - DY­LAN, VIA EMAIL

Ig­nor­ing some­one’s bad habits is OK as long as you love that per­son. With house­mates, though, even the slight­est an­noy­ance – the way they do the dishes or talk on the phone too loudly, how they breathe through their stupid nose while watch­ing TV – will grate and slowly drive you in­sane like a liv­ing Ed­vard Munch paint­ing. There are three op­tions: dis­cuss them; ig­nore them; get out. Is it really that bad if they squeeze the tooth­paste from the mid­dle of the tube, rather than from the end like a nor­mal per­son? Yes, it is. Leave im­me­di­ately.
