Living with someone who doesn’t have the same standards as you can be hard work – but one man has shared how he got sweaty and gross revenge on his messy and slovenly roommate
There’s a saying that you never truly know someone until you live with them and get to know all of their annoying habits, quirks, and idiosyncrasies. While you can normally learn to put up with them if it’s a partner, if it’s just a housemate then it can be incredibly frustrating.
One man has revealed how he felt so irritated by his former friend and his disgusting behaviour that he ended up getting revenge in a very gross way. Taking to social media to share his story with others, he explained that this happened a few years ago in Singapore after he’d finished university.
After arriving in the country he found a room in a house but due to costs, he ended up having to share with his friend, who was also looking for accommodation. He revealed that he and his friend Xavier* had a big room with two beds that came with an attached bathroom.
According to the man, there were many rules that their landlord put in place that made being at home difficult, including that they weren’t allowed to use the kitchen for cooking and could only use the washing machine and dryer at certain times in the week.

He wrote on Reddit: “So Xavier and I had an agreement that I would do laundry on Tuesdays and he would do laundry on Fridays. We also agreed to clean the room and bathroom once a week.
“The revenge was done because of the things he had done that built up a lot of anger in me. He always forgets his turn to do laundry. I needed to remind him every time. He also played a video game almost every single day and blasted his speakers with the sounds.
“He would sometimes ask me to help him put the laundry in the dryer because he was in the middle of playing his game. I kept telling him to lower his volume as I was usually on a video call with my girlfriend. Mind you, I used my earphones. She could hear his game sounds better than my own voice when talking to her. He would reduce the volume but then slowly turn it up as though I didn’t notice.”
In addition to the annoying noise levels, Xavier would also forget to clean their shared bathroom, meaning that he had to do it more often. He added: “Obviously, we use the sink to brush our teeth and all that jazz. But we also had to use it to wash our cups and cutlery there. We could use the kitchen sink, but it was troublesome as the landlord would usually be there, cooking or whatever.”
Putting it bluntly, the man called Xavier a slob. He admitted: “After he was done eating or drinking, he wouldn’t wash the cups or cutlery until he was going to use them the next time. There was once he just left his cutlery in the bathroom sink. Gross, I know.”
One day, the man came home early from work and found Xavier in their room playing his video game at full volume. At the end of his tether, he left to go to the gym to work out his frustration. He continued: “After the gym, I came back home all sweaty and s**t. He was still playing. I straight away went into the bathroom to shower but then I saw his mug was on the side. I was about to lose it again. I felt like beating the s**t out of him, but I’m not a violent man. I should have just sighed again, but the Devil in me had had enough. I let the Devil win this time.
“Remember how I came from the gym all sweaty? I took his mug, shoved my sweaty, grimy d**k and b**ls in it, and twisted the whole mug with my d**k and b**ls in it, twisting and turning for a good 10 seconds. I then put the mug back where he’d left it. After that, I had the best shower ever.”
Later that evening the two men decided to go out for dinner, and on their way back Xavier asked his roommate if he wanted to try a new beer. Continuing with his story, he went on: “I agreed, and so we bought two bottles of beer and headed back. We got into the room, and I got my mug, which is always clean and ready to be used. I popped my beer bottle and poured it into my mug. Then, I wanted to cheers with him.
“Xavier went to the bathroom picked up his mug, looked at it for a second, and brought it out. I felt a little bad because I had rimmed my b**l sweat with it and was also sure as s**t he hadn’t washed it yet. So I gave him a chance, asking if he wanted to wash it first. He shook his head and poured his beer into his mug.
“I made sure my mug brim didn’t touch his and clinked. Both of us gulped from our mugs and I was just waiting for his reaction. And he said the beer tasted a bit different. I had the biggest s**t-eating grin as I replied that it tasted pretty good. He carried on playing his game while I was riding the high of what I had just witnessed with my own two eyes. To this day, he still doesn’t know what I did to him. I still think about it sometimes and laugh to myself about it.” People who read the retribution story were thrilled. One person replied: “Superb revenge haha!” And someone else joked: “That was a d**k move. Great petty revenge! Roommates can really suck sometimes.
