Roommates.

Poll #1218407 Roommate etiquette

When it comes to food...

My food is my food. Your food is your food. Period.
19(17.4%)
I don't mind sharing condiments, but that's it.
23(21.1%)
It makes sense to share things like eggs, milk, bread, cereal, etc. Just stay away from my fancy restaurant leftovers and my expensive organic burritos.
51(46.8%)
We share! You can eat my food and I'll eat yours. We're roommates, after all.
16(14.7%)

Cleanliness...

Every person is responsible for his or her own mess, but not the mess of any other person.
68(62.4%)
It's normal for people to have to clean up after each other occasionally.
41(37.6%)

You're about to clean some dishes from the lunch you just made yourself and you notice that roommate has left a few dishes in the sink before leaving for work. You...

Clean my dishes only. I'm not a maid.
30(28.0%)
Clean all of the dishes, hoping that he/she would be willing to do the same if I were to leave dishes in a hurry.
77(72.0%)
Clean none of the dishes. If he/she isn't going to put in any effort, then why should I?
0(0.0%)

How often do you purchase things for the house? (paper towels, cleaning supplies, trash bags, sponges, dish soap, etc.)

Whenever I notice we need a particular item.
82(75.9%)
Only when it's my turn to do so.
21(19.4%)
Hardly ever because I rarely think of it.
5(4.6%)

Guests.

I don't ever mind if my roommate has people over. It's his/her house too. I wouldn't mind if my roommate's friend was hanging out watching TV even if my roommate wasn't home.
10(9.3%)
My roommate can have friends over as often as they like, provided they are home to entertain them and they aren't disturbing me.
67(62.0%)
I don't mind if friends and lovers visit sometimes, but I don't want to see them every day.
30(27.8%)
I'd rather we didn't have people over very often.
1(0.9%)

You're expecting a very important email, but your computer isn't working. Your roommate isn't home. You...

Use your roommate's computer. It's just a computer, no big deal.
16(15.4%)
Sneak into his/her room, use the computer to check your email and then leave everything as it was in hopes they won't notice.
8(7.7%)
Use his or her computer, and then tell him/her immediately when they get home while explaining the severity of the situation.
41(39.4%)
Find an alternate computer elsewhere (library, friend's house, work)
39(37.5%)
