After Splitting Everything 50/50 with His Roommate, His Annoying Girlfriend Who Practically Moved in For Free Demanded He Pay Her Back for A $3 Redbull

Two friends, Jack (M24) and Tom, share an apartment and split all bills, food, and rent down the middle, but when Tom’s girlfriend, T, started staying over every day and night, Jack initially didn’t mind. But a particular incident sparked a rift and disagreement between them all. Here is what Jack had to say:

A Free Ride

Jack and Tom had been living together for over a year and had no issues until Tom started seeing T, who is also a university student and hates her studio apartment. Jack never asked T to pay for anything, and she ate all meals at their place and took food to university if she needed it.

One day, Jack grabbed a Redbull from the fridge, assuming it was for both of them, but T got angry and accused him of taking her drink without permission, demanding he buy her a replacement. Jack apologized to avoid conflict, but T started labeling her food and drinks and making a point of saying they were hers.

Jack decided to ask Tom to make T pay for rent, bills, and food, or stop staying over because he didn’t want to pay for her anymore and be abused for taking a drink from his own fridge. However, he was hesitant to confront her because he didn’t want to damage his close relationship with Tom and because T was manipulative.

Asserting Dominance

T had also been trying to assert dominance by whispering to Tom during their weekly movie night and drawing him away to the bedroom. Jack wanted them to separate, but Tom was attracted to T’s looks which clouded his judgement.

In the end, Jack realized that he needed to stand up for himself and confront T about her behavior. He also talked to Tom about the situation and asked him to make T pay or leave. T spent more time at her own place after that, but she still came over and had the ability to kill the mood in any room.

Jack learned that sometimes, standing up for yourself is necessary, even if it means risking a close relationship. He also learned that manipulative behavior should never be tolerated, and he hoped that Tom would eventually see T’s true colors and end their relationship.

The Internet Responded

This commenter wrote, “Your roommate may actually be violating the lease by letting another person stay over too much. But beyond that, you need to sit down with your roommate and try to set some reasonable visitation limits. Unfortunately, beyond getting the landlord to establish a no trespass on her, there’s not much you can do to really enforce anything other than look for another place.”
