Forced into a small space, a few metres wide, with bars on the windows and little more than a bed, a desk and a sink. Oh, the joys of living in pris… I mean, on campus.
Still, most students have it easy compared to Winnie – a UCLA student who discovered she must serve her four years with the roommate from hell.
The pair have never even met, but it took just one email to trigger alarm bells, and lucky for us she’s shared it via Twitter for our horror/entertainment.
It began like this.
Okay so I’m not sure why neither of you responded back to my emails, but I don’t really care just as long as you both know this and understand that I’m not going to settle for anything less than what I’m gonna tell you that I’m gonna get once I arrive in the dorm.
Right. So not the most polite start, but let’s see where she goes with this.
I’ll take the top bunk bed that has a bottom and top bunk bed. 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. There should be two white closets, and I’m taking one of them. I don’t care for which one it is, just know I’m taking one of them.
Maybe not. That sounds disturbingly like a list of demands, so maybe tread very lightly and give her what she wants.
I want the desk near the window. Plain and simple. I don’t care who gets the bottom bunk, but just know what I stated is what I’m expecting once I arrive at the dorm, and I won’t be in the mood for any arguing or other nonsense because one of you decided to deliberately disregard this email.
Okay, Millie, run. Seriously, get out out of there. It’s not safe.
If needs be I’ll turn it into a bigger situation so don’t try me. Sorry but not that sorry for the attitude.
LEAVE EVERYTHING BEHIND! THERE’S NO TIME.
I don’t like being ignored because that’s just rude, but that’s what you both decided to do, so I decided to make it clear now on the kind of person I am and what I will and will not take.

Oh, we know what kind of person you are, alright. And we're freakin' terrified. But thankfully, there are heroes in this world, and Millie's other roommate, Guistinna (pictured above), is one of them.
