I really haven’t. Don’t know why I’m posting this, I just wanted to talk about the hilarity or insanity of it. I live with three other housemates and they are all pretty decent. Like it’s not going to always be perfect. Two of them are away at the moment which just leaves me and the other guy. Now there’s a lot of insanity I could post about this other guy (and frankly I can’t be bothered and I’m not going to gossip about it), but there is this one interesting experiment. Basically it’s common sense to empty the trash from kitchen right? Well apparently not. The image below is the other guy just filling it, filling it, and filling it even more. It’s never got like this before because someone has always emptied it (including myself). What I can’t get, is that the other guy has never emptied the bin, and now that he is effectively on his own with the trash, I don’t know what it is. I’m not sure if he is a snob and refuses to empty it (and he expects me to), or he is perhaps retarded. I really haven’t fracking foggiest.

Maybe he doesn’t understand how bins work. I would look on YouTube for a video that explains them for you but I’m on my phone11/04/14 at 10:03 #216907ron_mcphattyParticipant
It’s fairly appalling, but me and my girlfriend fall into the same trap occasionally. We have a first floor flat, its a 90 second round trip to the bins and we both pass them on the way to our cars to go to work, but our bin often overflows. We both swing between being OCD about cleaning and ridiculously lazy, but luckily neither of us refuse to do it when the other mentions it. Maybe your housemate’s got that ‘oh the next person will do it’ laziness going on and can be talked round? Hopefully anyway, it would be better that than the ‘I’m not emptying this bin. Plebians, your bin is full and the smell is offending my nasal orifaces! Remove your refuse immediately! And mine while you’re at it, although I’m of the opinion my waste is sweet smelling and would offend no one if it remained indefinitely, it seems that our single bin mean our excess packaging must mix. Thusly, you must all take it away and leave me to concentrate on higher functions. Where’s my pipe? Plebians!! Bring me my pipe and a room temperature double measure of the finest malt immediately! And an unsoiled copy of Nuts!’.
Either way, fracking excellent use of the word ‘fracking’.11/04/14 at 10:23 #216908
Who was the person who had Uncle Ben’s and the Beans – these look like the last two large items, and whilst the bin could have been emptied sooner, these larger items clearly do not fit. If they are his, he should empty it. Or, if he’s really never emptied the bin, he should empty it.11/04/14 at 10:57 #216912
haha yeah, I’ve been watching too much Battlestar Galactica. They use the word fracking as a swear word, and a mighty good one I think it is too.
To be honest it’s a small issue. But it’s one of many, so much that sometimes it gets me pissed off. In the bin episode though, I’m the only other one in the house for now, and I’m disposing of trash another way instead of using the bin (I mean it’s not like I can use the bin anyway, where the frack do I put the rubbish???). So I’m interested to see what he does seeing as he is all on his own with this one (all the above mess in the image is his). He’s an adult, he’s going to have to empty a bin sometime in his life, it’s ludicrous to think he wouldn’t just do it. I don’t think he is retarded enough not to notice the rubbish, or that the bin does not empty itself. In fact I have the sneaking suspicion he expects someone else to do it. But no one else is around (Easter vacation), and he knows I’m not doing it simply through the length on my inaction. He’s never emptied the bin, ever, for the 7 months of tenancy. It’s always been me or the others, which is why I’ve stopped. What the photo doesn’t show is that rubbish is now accumulating slowly on the above tabletop also. Like I say, I haven’t the frackin foggiest.11/04/14 at 11:16 #216914
I would just ask him mate – say “Look Derek, or whatever your name is, it’s defo your turn to empty the bin – look at it – this is ridiculous. Man up and sort yourself out, otherwise me and the others (when they return) are going to have to consider renting your room to someone else, someone more cooperative”. ;)
I can’t stand people who don’t take turns with chores, who are effectively sticking two fingers up at you by expecting you to clean up after them. It’s not on.11/04/14 at 11:50 #216916
I’ve just found he is going away for Easter now, and is leaving imminently. Whilst that’s good news (I get the place to myself for like two days perhaps), he has shoved even more rubbish around the bin and intends to leave it there. So I’m not putting up with that, absolutely not, so I told him just now to clear it the frack out before he goes. He looked at me innocently, as though I was asking him a favour, and he said yes. I think he is emptying it now. Now realised that he is someone who can actually empty the bin (and do a lot of other things he doesn’t do around the house), but that he will always try to ignore it and leave it for someone else to do. Either that or he is really that dumb to think he is doing me a favour.
I like the name Derek. It’s not his name, although I did think about nicknaming him Keith. It sounds comical. No offence to anyone called Keith, but if you look at my house mate and call him Keith, it would be hilarious.11/04/14 at 12:36 #216922
I also like the name Derek, I think that’s why it was the first name to come to mind!

I would like to read about the domestication of Keith going forward. Can we have updates?11/04/14 at 18:25 #216964freezebug2Participant
Oh dear, whatever happened to the recycling generation?
I’d have to have half of that crap in specific green bins for the caged van arriving on Mondays lol!12/04/14 at 10:37 #216970blast71Participant
I thought this was going to be a debate about gas fracking, gladly, it’s a much more interesting thread :)12/04/14 at 15:55 #216971Stefan LKeymaster
I think the real reason why he looked at you so innocently was out of confusion when you started your little confrontation with “Look Derek, or whatever your name is…”
I’ve been chuckling to myself for the last 5 minutes about that one.
I’m a bit mental.13/04/14 at 00:24 #216990
@Stefan He’d of probably looked at with me disgust if I’d had actually said such a thing, either that or perhaps confusion in an attempt to downplay me taking the piss.
@Freeze the normal trash collection is too much for Keith to handle at the moment, so I think it’ll be a while before he develops and moves on to any recycling activities. We wouldn’t want to strain him.14/04/14 at 14:24 #217075Dan JonesParticipant
I have an issue with one of my house mates similar to this!
My flaw is leaving my plates on the kitchen drainer for one too many days, but that’s hardly major, it doesn’t affect anyone, unless you’re massively OCD. However, one of our house never takes the trash out, cleans up, remotely helps, washes up, washes his own clothes, or showers, or uses deodorant. I’m not kidding. It’s disgusting. We’ve told him countless times and he never changes. I have to hold my breathe going upstairs as it smells.
When we were all (house effort) cleaning the living room and giving it a little reshuffle the other day he got pissed as I turned off his laptop charger (while he was sitting there doing nothing on it while everyone was busy cleaning) while I was cleaning his PS3, and PS4! I was furious.
Plus he fancies and spends loads of time with my ex girlfriend, and doesn’t see why I find that annoying. Literally what the fuck? On top of that he never sleeps, or goes to lectures and spends all day on the same sofa under a blanket that’s never been washed playing the shittest PS4 games (fucking Dynasty Warriors) on my TV (which I generously put in the living room).
I think I have it worse :P14/04/14 at 18:38 #217094freezebug2Participant
Wow Origami, that dude sounds like he’s waiting for the evolution clock to kick in. He needs a Monday trip to the recycle plant :P
