It's not easy being as student. Your budget is tight, you scrimp and save to get by and when you bring home your shopping you intend to eat it all yourself. But your housemates have other ideas. Here are the eight types of food your housemates will steal from you.
Probably the most common infringement. Tea is the main use which is okay unless your housemates like really milky. Then it becomes an issue.
Another obvious one. The thing about having your butter taken is that the loss is so gradual that you don't even notice. It's like the death from a thousand cuts, one day you'll wake up and realise you've gone through a whole stick of butter in two weeks.
If you leave your alcohol in a common area or the fridge it is inevitable someone will take it, it's just a fact of life. If you really care about you're alcohol you'll drive out to a field and bury it under a tree, like I do.
Pizza is the lazy cooks dream. Chuck it in the oven and as long as you don't forget about it, you're golden. Their ease of preparation is also their downfall as any conniving roomate can take your Goodfellas and have it cooked and eaten in under 40 minutes.
Biscuits are a primary target for stingy housemates. The worst offenders are the ones who buy shite biscuits but take your good ones. A Tesco cookie is not a substitute for a chocolate hobnob. THEY'RE NOT EVEN IN THE SAME LEAGUE!
Again like butter, it's hard to pin down the condiment thieves. You nearly have to catch them red handed. Maybe taint your ketchup with tabasco and see if they say anything.
Bread is an essential for student must have. As such, it is in demand. As the old saying goes: keep your friends close and your enemies closer and your bread within arms reach at all times.
Teabags in a house is usually a free for all. You can't be too protective of teabags, but you can insist they use them twice, or three times.
