Hoarder Alert
My freshman year of college, I lived in a forced triple dorm room. Space was already limited, but what made it even worse was one of my roommates was a hoarder. She slept with trash around, under, and even on her bed. My other roommate and I would try to get her to clean by enforcing clean up days and occasionally leaving a passive aggressive post-it or two to no avail. On the bright side, I did develop a habit of being extremely clean in response to the experience.
