    I am a student and I live in private accommodation with my best friend and a guy I cannot stand. We use to all be friends and agreed to move in together. However, he has turned out to be a nightmare. I work 20-25 hours a week outside of uni and I also work in the labs with my lecture so I am busy. He doesn't work so he has more time than me.

    Anyway, he refuses to clean the toilet as he thinks it is horrible etc so me and my other flat mate (sarah) agreed to do the bathroom and living room as long as he does the kitchen. Now he is complaining about the kitchen and thinks he should do less and says hes better than us etc and thinks that why he shouldnt have to do it.

    He also shoved a condom on my ceiling after I came back from a 10 hour shift because he was mad at me after I told him straight about his attitude. Then today, he threw my protein shaker and my dishes on the drying rack which could have broken and I had a go at him. He turns round and says 'I did it because I need space to dry my dishes'. I got even angrier and finally snapped, I ended up losing it then he turns round and says I am the one with the attitude. He just doesn't get it, he thinks hes better than everyone else and thinks he can treat people like dirt. He can't even put my stuff down nicely, instead he throws it just shows he has no respect for anyone. I had it on the rack because it has to air dry or it will smell. I cannot stand him anymore, I will not put up with his attitude either.

    how long is the lease, aka can you and friend find somewhere else? also id say have a meeting with all 3 and just explain
