Imagine being excited to go off to college. Now imagine getting a letter from a terrifying roommate you haven’t even met!
Winnie Chen, a UCLA student, received an email from her future roomie… although, it was less like an email and more like a list of demands.
“I’ll take the top bunk of the bunk bed that has a bottom and top bunk,” the stipulating roommate wrote. “I DO NOT want the single bunk where it has a desk underneath the top bunk so don’t try to leave me that. I’m also taking one of the white closets. … I want the desk that’s near the window. Plain and simple. … Once I arrive at the dorm … I won’t be in the mood for any arguing or other nonsense … If needed be I’ll turn it into a bigger situation so don’t try me.”
The third roommate, Guistinna Tun, didn’t sit and take it.
“GIIRRL, WE HAVEN’T EVEN MET YOU YET,” Tun wrote in her email, posted in a tweet that has since been removed. "But at this rate, I don’t think I wanna even meet you anymore. #SORRYBUTNOTTHATSORRY"
The no-holds-barred roommate wrote back that although she didn't appreciate the snarkiness, she is pleased Tun and Chen stuck up for themselves. She went on to explain she has “anger issues” and is a “ticking time bomb that sets off when certain things I don’t like happen to me.”
Last minute, Chen tried to change roommates, she replied on the tweet that has been removed, but is “stuck with Ticking Time Bomb.”
