The Dorm Room Drama: A Summary 🎭

Our freshman protagonist is in a dorm room deadlock with her roommate over cleaning and laundry services. She's drawn a line (literally) and refuses to pay for her 'enemy's' side of the room to be cleaned or her laundry to be done. Despite the backlash, she stands firm on her stance, asserting that her money, her rules. She avoids her roommate like the plague and wishes for nothing more than for her space to be respected. But is she being reasonable, or is this just a case of dorm room drama gone too far? Let's see what the internet has to say... 🕵️‍♀️🧺🧹

"ESH She is violating your space and your stuff, sure. But you’re not the first person to have conflict with a dorm mate. You sound like a miserable person to live with as well. And dear lord, how big is your dorm room that mommy and daddy need to pay someone to clean it? Considering her your enemy is only going to invite in more of what you are already getting. You can pay people to do things for you but you can’t pay anyone to make you a decent, well adjusted human being. That takes effort. Grow up. Settle your disagreements like the adults you claim to be." 🤷‍♀️
