Moving into a new house or flat, whether you’re a student, post-graduate or post-post-graduate, can be an awkward transition for everyone involved.There’s a reason for this: enough people have lived with enough weirdos to warrant caution (by the way, if you’ve never lived with a weirdo, you’re probably one). However, we’ve never heard about such a hellish roommate as this…
Most people don’t know they’re living with a less than ideal roommate until they’ve moved in. For poor Winnie Chen and Guistinna Tun, students at UCLA, they knew they were living with a monster before she’d even arrived.
The roommate referred to as ‘Ashly’ by Teen Vogue emailed the two roommates and when there wasn’t an immediate response, sent the kind of demanding email that you can’t even believe is true.
The story ends there for now. According to Winnie’s Twitter there was a back and forth between the parties but it didn’t result in anything positive.For now, I thought it’d be fun to pull some quotes from the most aggressive email of 2016. I can’t imagine a worse foot to get off on – maybe if it had gangrene or like three big toes?
“I DO NOT want the single bunk where it has a desk underneath the top bunk so don’t try to leave me that”
It really sounds like she’s been burned with this savage ploy before and will not let it happen again. Typical college deviants assigned bunks – these menaces need to be stopped!
“Once I arrive in the form I won’t be in the mood for any arguing or other nonsense”

What a way to start the college experience: in a pre-ordered bad mood.
“If needed be I’ll turn it into a bigger situation so don’t try me”
That’s fair, don’t try her. Unless you want a horse’s head in your bed and your childhood home burned down… jeez.
“Fair enough to ask for considering that I’m giving up fighting for the bottom bunk”
What a saint. Bowing out of the privilege to fight for the bottom bunk which is ironic considering this is the kind of girl that sounds like she’s itching to get her hands on as much privilege as possible.
