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?
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.
