Three Different Types of Roommates
Having had plenty of roommates in the past has given me a chance to observe the different kinds of behaviors a roommate can exhibit. Living with a untamed jungle monkeys is a good comparison to leaving with roommates. Roommates can never be easy to live with, especially if you get one that is like the roommates I mention in the following paragraphs.
