Living with roommates can be difficult, especially regarding finances and responsibilities. In this case, the poster has been charged extra rent for utilities and feels like a freeloader. On top of that, she has to take care of her messy roommate's animals and clean up after her. To make matters worse, her tiny room barely fits her bed, while her roommate has a bedroom and a spare room for herself. After her roommate demanded even more money for utilities, the poster decided to move out and was wondering if she was in the wrong. It's understandable why she would want to leave a stressful situation and live with a friend who offers cheaper rent and emotional support. But is it fair for her to put more financial burden on her roommate? What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
