In a tale of roommate woes turned fishy, a college student named Damien took matters into his own hands when his roommates’ irresponsibility pushed him over the edge.
Dorm Days Turned Awkward
In his college days, Damien found himself sharing a studio apartment with two fellow students from his college.
One was in his program, and the other shared a few classes with them.
The Exodus Begins
Life changes led both of them to move out – one switched schools, while the other moved in with their significant other.
The Quest for Subletters
In their absence, Damien decided to find subletters to fill the vacant spots in the apartment.
Strangers Under One Roof
This transition brought about some awkward moments, as they were essentially strangers living together in one big room with partitioned “huts” for each of them.
Consistent Late Bills
Over time, they managed to get to know each other enough to coexist peacefully, but an issue began to surface: they were consistently late with bill payments, including their share of the rent.
His Name on the Line
Damien was the only one of the original leaseholders, so everything was in his name – the lease, the utilities, and all.
This meant he had to regularly remind them to provide their share of the money for the services they all used.
Racking Up Debt
Since they were so bad at paying on time, Damien slowly started racking up debt and taking on a lot of stress.
Employed but Unreliable
While Damien struggled to make ends meet, relying on loans and occasional side jobs as a college student, both of his roommates were employed full-time!
Seeking an Escape Route
Fed up with covering their unpaid bills, he decided it was time for him to find a way out of this predicament.
Over the course of several months, he managed to add their names to the lease, collect most of the outstanding bills, and secure a new place to live.
When he finally informed his roommates that he was leaving, they appeared indifferent.
But the situation took a turn when Damien started moving his possessions out of the studio.
Selling Essential Appliances Sparks Conflict
His roommates became agitated about services ending (internet, etc) and were clearly unhappy.
Damien, however, calmly suggested that they could set up the services in their names if they wished to continue using them.
Things escalated when Damien began selling the essential appliances – first the stove and then the fridge!
One roommate who was particularly furious about losing the fridge confronted Damien, demanding to know why he hadn’t sold it to them.
Damien’s response was sharp and to the point: “I wouldn’t sell you that fridge for a thousand dollars because I don’t like you.” Boom.
The Tension Peaks
The next few days were full of tension and discomfort. Damien, with the help of his siblings, orchestrated a swift evening move, clearing out the remaining belongings.
The roommates stayed in their huts while Damien’s things were being removed. Before leaving, he had one final idea – a parting gift inspired by his dislike of these guys.
A Parting Gift
He decided to open a can of tuna and secretly stuff the contents into the shower curtain rod! After rehanging the curtain, he left the studio for good.
Regrets and Reflections
Looking back on the situation, Damien’s only regret was not witnessing the aftermath of his unconventional parting gift – a slowly intensifying stench that must have accompanied every trip to the studio’s single bathroom!
It was a fitting payback for the stress they had caused him during their time as roommates and a funny ending to a challenging chapter in his life, one he was glad to see the back of.
Fans of Damien’s Revenge Tactics
Redditors loved Damien’s long-term revenge. One user quipped, “Satan has entered the chat. Well done.”
