To ppl saying “how does she know it was her tampon?” Maybe she counts them ….I’m strictly a tampon user, & a box of tampons is like, my lifeblood (no pun intended,) during “lady time”.

Plus i mean, a box of tamps is what? On average, 16 deep?? If i misplace one, or use one, or had one in my purse & it falls out… If im missing one in any capacity that i didnt USE, I KNOW. I don’t have any sisters so I don’t have to worry about that part, but it’s not hard to remember how many little cotton sticks you did or didn’t put in your body LMAO

Hs your sister tried TALKING with her ROOMMATE instead of you? Why are you so involved in this? The mature thing to do would be to hve an open conversation about expectations woth the roommate——operating with he assumption you have diffferbt norms not that somebody is “wrong.” I’m a light sleeper——and also of the school that you get to do laundry at 2 am if you want to in your own home. So I wear earplugs. I also joined Costco and just buy all the toilet paper so I don’t have to worry about it. In exchange I feel free to use my roommates toilet paper and eggs when I run low. Because in the end we are a household, which involves give and take. Sometime my boyfriend is over and we watch loud tv. Sometimes her soccer team stops by for breakfast at an unfosdly for and I groan to myself. It’s each of our homes and we BOTH have a right to feel comfortable in it. My norms are t magically better than hers.

 

i think your sister needs to realize that she has PREFERENCES—-that she has to openly discuss and workut woth her roommate who might have different PREFERENCES for how the house or organized. Nobody —-not the roommate, not the sister had a magical right to have all their preferences in place.

If Dad is paying off her lease, why does the roommate have to move? I am worried she will just move out and sister will have to cover the whole rent herself. When I lived with roommates in college the on campus apartments all had separate leases- meaning if my roommate bailed, the landlord couldn’t insist on me paying her share, but a lot of leases are joint and severally liable, meaning they’ll come after the sister who is still living there before they’ll hit up the co-signer.

 

If sister does have to get a new roommate, I recommend she make it clear she wants quiet time during normal sleeping hours and not take anyone with pets.

How old is this roommate? She sounds so irresponsible. Dad is doing her no favors by constantly bailing her out.
