“Craigslist can be a shifty place to find a room to rent,” writes Iris in Portland, Oregon, who speaks from experience. “I found a beautiful house renting from a 40-something professional,” but shortly after moving in, things got weird. (Like, meth-fueled mood swings weird.)
“One night,” Iris says, “he decided to take EVERYTHING out of the kitchen, leaving not even so much as a plastic fork. The next day, everything was put back with this note taped to the inside of the fridge. This is brain on drugs, people!”

The only think Derek — I’m sorry, “Dman” — had to say about this note was, “i live with some girls, and one is pretty funny.” Something tells that “funny ha ha” isn’t what comes to his roommates’ minds when mopping up Derek’s puddles of urine.

Maureen is the first to admit that when she studied abroad in Belgium, she was not the best of roommates (coming home intoxicated at 4 a.m. several times a week, an awkward run-in with a boyfriend, that kind of thing.) And yet, over the course of many months, her Belgian roommate never once complained.
One night, Maureen came home to find her roommate’s possessions neatly packed up in boxes. Before she had a chance to talk to her, everything — save this note — was gone, which Maureen interprets as “a not so subtle way of telling me she never wants to see me again.” (I’d say that’s a pretty safe bet.)
