Roommate From Hell--UPDATE

DD and roommate had a meeting with their RA yesterday.  They talked it out with her and agreed to be more communicative with each other, instead of letting things build up.  Later that evening, DD and roomie went out for ice cream.  DD says everything was fine, as if nothing had ever happened.  RA told them that with some of the other people on the floor she's dealing with, their problems were a breathe of fresh air to deal with.  Interesting,  Can you say, "Parents, do you know what your children are doing?"  Scary.  I am glad this has passed. 

Thanks, ladies for all your stories and input.

BTW, the campus police shot a homeless man on the roof of one of the campus buildings yesterday.  What?

And 48 hours later, the truce is over.  Roommate says she's moving out ASAP.  Got upset when DD brought a guy (the first all year) to the room.  DD says she texted roommate beforehand and asked if it was OK.  Roomie (who had met guy a couple of days ago) says yes, they come in and everybody is laughing and talking.  After about 30 minutes, DD walks guy down to lobby when he leaves.  Roomie texts her and says she doesn't want him in room.  DD apologizes and says OK, I'll just have friends over when I know you're not going to be here so you're not disturbed.  Roomie says, no, I don't want him or anybody in the room.  And I can have him banned from the dorm!   Again, she won't have conversation face to face and storms out of room when DD comes in.  RA says nobody in the room until the two talk.  Roomie is not having it.  DD is done with her and I'm done with situation.  I know things are bad when Mr. Cheapo DH says last night, maybe she should get a single room next year, LOL!

Hi game gaga, I saw the news on the guy on the dorm. Good thing someone saw him and notified the police! Glad to read the update. Has your dd decided what she will do for housing in the fall yet?
