What to do when your incoming college roommate is an *&@&^%&#***^&**—in so many words.
A freshman at UCLA, identified as Ashly, has already started a brawl with her roommates-to-be, after she made unbelievable demands to the girls she hadn’t even met yet.
One of the roommates, named Winnie, received the email and shared it on Twitter earlier this month.
“My roommate that I haven't even met…” she wrote.
The email from Ashly read:
“Okay so I’m not sure why neither of you responded back to my emails, but I don’t really care 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. I’ll take the top bunk. 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 which one it is, just know I’m taking one of them.
I want the desk that’s near the window. Plain and simple. I don’t care about who gets the bottom bunk but just know that what I stated above 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 two decided to deliberately disregard this email. If need be I’ll turn it into a bigger situation so don’t try me.
Sorry but not that sorry for the attitude. 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.
So as a final reminder: I am getting the top bunk of the bunk bed with the bed on the bottom, I am getting one of the white closes and I’m getting the desk near the window. That’s fair enough to ask considering that I’m giving up fighting for the top bunk.”
A third roommate, named Guistinna Tun, wrote back to Ashly saying that her and Winnie were “more than willing to compromise” on the living situation, but put her in her place about being entitled and rude. It worked. A week later, Ashly wrote back with a much kinder email, offering to move out and look for a different dorm if they wanted her to.
It’s not clear if that has happened just yet.
