Emily, a 23-year-old woman, faces a difficult living situation with her roommate Emma, who refuses to shower despite going for a 2-hour run every morning, and ultimately decides to have her evicted due to the unbearable smell and health risks, causing conflict and criticism from others.
When 23-year-old Emily moved in with her 18-year-old roommate, Emma, she didn’t expect to have to deal with her roommate’s poor hygiene habits.
For 4 months, Emma had not showered once, despite going for a 2-hour run every morning. The smell was unbearable, and Emily couldn’t take it anymore.
She Tried to Talk to Her
Emily tried to talk to Emma about it, but Emma brushed it off and said that she would shower, but never did. Last week, Emily told Emma that she needed to start showering or she would be evicted.
He Could Barely Stand the Smell
When nothing changed, Emily contacted the landlord and explained the situation. The landlord came over and could barely stand the smell. He gave Emma 30 days to move out, or be removed by force.
She Was Furious!
Emma was furious and called Emily names, but Emily didn’t think she was in the wrong. However, some people told her that she was being inconsiderate, especially since it was close to Christmas and Emma was in her first year of college.
Feeling conflicted, Emily turned to Reddit for advice, where she was met with mixed opinions. Some people thought that she was in the right, while others thought that she was being too harsh. Despite the criticism, Emily knew that she had to do what was best for her health and well-being.
In an update to her post, Emily revealed that Emma had seen the post and called her a jerk. She also threatened to sue for cultural discrimination, but the landlord’s lawyer explained that poor hygiene was a biohazard and that Emma was putting Emily’s health at risk.
The Friends Agreed
On a positive note, Emily’s friends reached out and agreed that she was in the right. They said that they wouldn’t come over because of the smell, and that telling her to put up with it for longer was terrible.
A Clean Update!
In a final update, Emily shared some good news. She wrote, “GUYS I’M CRYING! SHE’S SHOWERING RIGHT NOW!!!!” It seemed like her hard work had paid off, and she could finally breathe a sigh of relief, and some fresh air.
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “If she smells so bad that the apartment stinks to the point where the landlord is throwing up, that isn’t normal. You talked to her, she did nothing. The people who are telling you that you did wrong should live with her for a semester and see how they feel about it.”
More Internet Comments
Another person commented, “Your roommate is lucky she’s not being sued by your landlord for long lasting damage to the apartment. Smells absorb into walls and fabrics. From smoking to letting mildew build up, smelly shoes etc… If the smell is so bad it’s immediately apparent upon a foot in the door, it may not even be able to be aired out of the place and would constitute damage to the apartment.”
A Final Comment
This last person posted, “Lack of hygiene to that degree is a really concerning sign that points to mental health problems. Does she have family that you can call? She’s at the age where most mental illness strikes.”
