Death would be too swift

Its been a common complaint against me that I tend to blame others for my problems. Its something that I admit to. I make too many excuses, I do. But I have to say, with 8 pages due tommorrow, that the loud, distracting sex that my roommate is having on the other side of that goddamned collapsable wall, that even my headphones at full blast can't drown out, isn't my fucking fault.

I can't take it someplace else, either, because the door is on the other side, too.

I am not asking for sympathy, I'm asking for suggestions as to how I should repay this act. Because one thing is certain: This aggression shall not stand.

And yes, SuperKate, I stand by what I said earlier that if I'm not getting any at least someone should be. But it has to be someone I like as a person.

  3. Make it obvious. State nice and loudly 'So..uh.. How about you stop fucking?' Generally if he's not embarrassed, she will be, and that'll be it. Or just ask 'would you mind slapping her ass once and have her yell out my name? that'd be great, thanks.' If he confronts you, that'll be fun. 'dude, you're *fucking*!'

    you're an actor, be creative, make it a game. Your roommate can't really be angry, he's invading your space. He'll recognize that when you bring some chick home and have her scream. Bang on his bed if that happens, because that's funny too. :)

  4. Well the thing is I've let it slide on previous ocasions (albeit usually unintentionally) I do like that last idea though.

  5. Perhaps next time you won't wait until the last minute to do your homework.

  6. a valid point, though the other days I'd been working on finishing my play. None of the new scenes I've written seem to fit quite right so I've been kinda spinning my wheels. As it happens I was able to scrape something together in the morning, which I finished fifteen minutes before class started.

  7. i agree with mickerdoo. make it REALLY obvious. when they're done ask them if they'd like a cigarette. or walk into the room and ask him if he's found her volume control yet (i hear its right next to the g-spot, but my knowledge of the female body is VERY limited).

  8. I love the cigarette idea. It almost makes me want to have a roommate again just to try it out.
