Daniel Ewald’s roommate pulled a gun on him; Shana Challmes’s roommate stole their rent — and her shoes; another commenter’s roommate “went to the bathroom” in the bathtub — multiple times. There are plenty more roommate horror stories where that came from, thanks to your friendly local city promotion non-profit, Live Baltimore.
The “worst roommate ever” contest actually kicked off a couple of weeks ago, and today is its final day — so Live Baltimore’s Facebook page is stuffed with stories that will make you appreciate your roomie who does nothing worse than forget to take out the trash. It’s technically a contest, where the story with the most “likes” by noon today (hurry!) wins $100 in Baltimore-themed loot, but I’m treating it more as a distraction from my last minute tax-prep. Never have I felt so glad to live alone!
The event also serves as promotion for Live Baltimore’s second Roommate Speed Date, scheduled for this Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Fitzgerald in Mt. Vernon.
