    My first set of housemates used to wake me up every night, have parties in the kitchen, and generally be absolutely bloody horrible.

    On the nights that they pissed me off, I used to have toast with Marmite, using only their stuff - and because they were very, very well off, they always had the best stuff so it tasted even better, especially with the added revenge ^_^
    Mine are just like this!!
    It pisses me off no end. I once went into the kitchen and contemplated taking a left out ipod because they had been screaming in the corridor outside my room until 6am the previous night. I would've felt guilty though, so I didn't it. =/

    Oh I thought about that too. Or taking the fuse out of the iPod speakers they had so that they wouldn't be able to play their bloody obnoxious music at high volume all day and night, with my room next to the kitchen, and refusing to turn it down ¬_¬

    I realised I was perfectly justified when one of their friends got kicked out of a club and proceeded to pee himself all over our flat because he was just SO drunk.

    Me and one of my old house mates got into a prank war.....at first it was just him leaving my Pc homepage to very very disturbing websites as i never bothered to lock my door while i was down in the living room.

    It moved on to him stealing my entire Computer along with everything on my desk and replacing it with an identical replica he had made and painted out of cereal boxes, lava lamp, Keyboard and mouse all included

    Also he filled my freezer draw with all my food in with my cutlery, plated etc then filled it with water and left overnight for me to find a lovely block of my stuff in the morning ><

    However I went into his room, filled his computer with gay man porn and changed many of his Desktop Icon short-cuts to turn off his computer and also bought several bags of microwaveable popcorn to which i filled his entire cupboard, fridge, freezer, teapot, pots, pans and cereal boxes with
    Wow, that is pretty epic. I'm sharing a house with them next year so should be interesting.

    I totally disagree with people being malicious using food, that's a totally different ballgame. I mean stealing someone's icecream is just an ********-y thing to do. And I can't really afford to buy loads of food myself so it would be pretty stupid to go and ruin someone else's.

    Please tell me this did not occur :nothing:
    In my household it did.

    Though, I realised before I even began preparing it :yy:

    I merely ask because in an ongoing series of pranks, I got locked out of my room. To which I replied, the longer you leave me in the corridor, the longer I have free access to people's food in the fridge. All in jest obviously. However I was given a dark look and told that you can't mess with food. But my question is, is messing with people's food (obviously in a non lethal/serious way) going too far?

    On a completely unrelated note, what is the chance that putting some lemon juice on a burger will render it inedible? I figured it would make little to no difference
    Yes it is.

    1. Don't mess with someone's food
    2. Don't mess with someone's bed

    Anything else goes really, within reason.

    Well, fair enough. But we already removed someone's mattress and put it in the kitchen, so I guess we'd already crossed the line of sanity.


    We did help them put it back tbf.

    That's ok. I mean messing as in putting sand in it or something that could cause lack of sleep or discomfort.

    Same with food too. I think if it's something like chillifying a single biscuit, that's fine. But not the main meal.

    That's just what I reckon anyway.

    As far as i see anything distructive to someone's belongings is a no go area. Food is something that you shouldn't destroy/make taste gross but i don't see the problem with moving it or something.

    Who knows, you be amazed if someone is allergic to lemon juice. If theylocked you out, next time, lock them out so they know how it feels. Same level, same prank, hopefully one another can understand the feeling of how it felt.
