Roommate horror stories are pretty popular topics of conversation at college. Everybody’s got them. Follow a few simple guidelines to ensure you're not the awful roommate everyone's talking about—and learn to deal with your terrible roommate.

大学生之间聊天时常常谈及室友那些惹人厌的事迹,每个人都可以讲出一些。如果你想确保自己不是每个人口中的烦人室友,或者想学习和糟糕室友的相处之道,有几条简单准则你可照办。

I know bad roommates. Last year my noisy, inconsiderate roommate constantly woke me up around three in the morning. Her side of the room was always messy and covered with clothes. Her suitcase from Christmas break didn’t move from the middle of the room all second semester. She used my makeup. She ate my food. One night, her boy toy stole my pillow off my bed. While I was sleeping on it. And she brought a kitten to live in our room (which, just by the way, is totally against dorm policies). Y’all, I don’t like cats. Not even kittens. But who did the kitty like best? Me. Whose bed did it sleep on? Mine. Who did it wake up every morning to be fed? Me.

我有一个烦人的室友。去年,我室友常常制造噪音,不顾及我的感受,常在凌晨三点把我吵醒。房间里她那一侧通常是乱哄哄的,衣服到处都是。圣诞节假期返校后带来的行李箱一直放在房间中央——整个第二学期就没挪过地。她用我化妆品,吃我东西。一天夜里,她的小白脸从正在熟睡的我的脑袋下偷走了我的枕头。此外,她在我们寝室安顿了一只小猫咪(提一句,这完全违背了寝室制度)。好吧,我不喜欢猫,可爱的小猫咪也无感。但小猫咪最喜欢的是谁呢?我。它睡谁床上呢?我的。每天早上它醒过来给她喂食的是谁?我。

Oh, and it gave our room fleas. FLEAS.

哦,跳蚤也跟它一起住进了我们寝室。

While my rooming situation left much to be desired, I know that I probably wasn’t the perfect roommate either. However, my roommate and I were still able to get along together fairly well (all things considered) and managed to end the year on good terms. There are a few basic things you can do to help start off a successful roommate relationship and some tactics to help alleviate even the worst of rooming circumstances.

我寝室的状况差强人意,我知道我作为室友可能也不完美。但是,我们两人仍然能够相处得非常好(如果所有事情都考虑在内的话),我们在和谐的氛围中走过了去年。做到这几件基本的事情,将有助于建立成功的室友关系;寝室局势恶劣至极时,有几样技巧将起到缓和之作用。

Respect Each Other

相互尊重

First and foremost, you need to respect your roommate. I know, sometimes, it’s really hard. But when you’re living in tight quarters with the same person (or people), if you don’t respect them first, they sure as hell won’t respect you. Your parents have hopefully been teaching you what respecting others mean since you were about four. The same rules apply in college as they did in preschool.

首先和首要的,你要尊重你的室友。我知道有时真的很难。只是你和同一个人(或同一群人)生活在局促的方寸之间,如果你不展现你的尊重,你也必然得不到他们的尊重。想必你的父母从你四岁就开始教给你怎样才算尊重别人了吧。学前班的规则同样适用于大学。

Be Considerate – If your roommate is sleeping or attempting to sleep, keep the noise and light levels down. If your roommate is studying, don’t have loud conversations in the same room. It really should be common sense, but it is truly amazing how people don’t understand what it means to be considerate. If in doubt, ask yourself if you would be annoyed if your roommate did whatever it is you would like to do to you. If the answer is no, take it elsewhere.

顾及别人。如果你室友已经睡着或正试图入睡,调低你的音量和光亮。如果你室友正在学习,不要在他学习的房间内大声交谈。这真的只是常识,可人们却不懂得怎样去顾及别人,确实令人吃惊。如果对此有疑问,问问自己,如果正在做你想做的事的人是你室友,你会否感到被搅扰。如果答案是不想被打扰,那就另寻他处吧。

Keep It Clean – Seriously, I cannot emphasize how many horror stories I have heard about dirty roommates. Hair in the shower, toothpaste gelled to the sink, bathrooms littered with magazines or dirty clothes. It’s gross. Respect means keeping your side of the room clean. Now, I’ll admit, I’m a rather messy person. I don’t like picking up my clothes, the concept of drawers, or making my bed. But at least once a week, I pick all of my stuff up off the ground and make my side of the room clean again. It’s a good habit to get into and it will make you a better roommate. And hopefully, if your roommate sees you keeping your side clean, they’ll be more inclined to keep theirs clean.

保持卫生。我不再强调我听过了多少恼人经历是和关于脏兮兮的室友相关的。淋浴留下的头发,洗手池上粘的牙膏,浴室里杂志或脏衣服乱扔。恶心。尊重的意思就是房间你那一侧保持干净。我承认,我不爱整洁。我不喜欢捡拾衣服,收拾抽屉,整理床铺。但是一周我至少有一次,把我的东西从地上捡起来,把房间里我那一侧打扫干净。会让你成为一个更好的室友。还有,你室友看到你那一侧卫生保持得很干净,他们也有望保持他们那一侧的干净。

Keep Your Hands Off Their Stuff – Respecting your roommate means respecting their stuff. I already told you my former roommate used my makeup, usually without asking. Just don’t do it, especially with personal items like brushes and stuff like that. It’s gross. If you really need to borrow something of theirs, always, always ask before you do. If they say no, don’t get offended. Some people just don’t like other people using their stuff. This goes especially for food. It’s super annoying to open the fridge and see that your lunch that you planned to eat is now gone. If you eat your roommate's food, it is absolutely your responsibility to replace it.

不要碰室友的东西。尊重室友意味着尊重他们的物品。我前边说过,前任室友常问都不问就用我的化妆品。不要这么做,特别是像刷子这种私人物品。乱动私人物品很恶心。如果确实需要借用,务必用之前提出请求。如果他们不借,那就别得罪他们了。一些人就是不喜欢别人用自己的东西。特别是食物。打开冰箱,发现自己打算吃的午餐不翼而飞真的超级冒火。假如你吃了室友的食物,换一份新的绝对是你的义务。
