Before voting please read into the descriptions of their characters. Imagine that you MUST live with one of them. You also cannot kick them out, kill them, get them arrested or use any other tactic to get rid of them. They are here to stay. Also they will not break their habits. You can use tactics to try to stop them from their actions such as putting up cameras but they will not change their behaviour. Anyway heres their character descriptions.

The tweaker is always high on meth. He doesn't steal due to religious beliefs and he usually picks up after himself. However he is extremely irritating and will invite over his drug dealer and smoke meth in the bathroom no matter how many times you have told him not to. He hoards useless electronics and is very delusional about the government and is always looking for where the "bugs" are and will do the same pointless shit for hours. He even pours your beer down the toilet because "it was poisoned" and keeps you up all night on a regular basis. You cant leave him alone for even a minute without him doing something stupid.

The theif is pleasant to be around, isn't on drugs, does chores and is mostly a good roommate except for the fact that she will steal anything that isn't bolted down. She will then make stupid unbelievable lies about what happened to your stuff. Even when you catch her in the act she will make up some excuse. She is always talking about how shes the victim even though its obvious that she is the one stealing and lying. You can't really have anything nice with out it disappearing.

The slob does not pick up after himself at all. No matter how much you try to clean up the house, he will destroy it even more. He hoards garbage and even pisses in a coke bottle in his room at night so he doesn't have to get up. He refuses to go look for a job but his dad usually pays his rent for him. Sometimes he is short on the bill money and you have to pay the difference. He watches tv literally about ten hours a day and only watches horrible childerns cartoons on the christian network and gets angry if you want to watch something else. He spills beer and bong water on your couch and has a cat that he rarely cleans the cat litter for which he regularly uses sawdust. He has anger management issues and gets mad and damages the properity which you know will come out of your deposit. He rarely bathes and even less he will do his laundry. You can't walk by his bedroom door without gagging.

This is why I live alone.

Interesting poll. I feel in some way it's a psychological test of IIN users but I'll play along because I've nothing really to hide. Before I read the full description, I was reasonably sure I was going to favour the slob.

But it's the thief. She has bad personality traits that can be swerved (lock on my bedroom door) and has good personality traits too.

I hope this isn't a poll about your current three flatmates. Poor you, if so!

I don't live with any of them anymore but have in the past for at least a couple months each. Me or someone else in the house ended up kicking each one out.

My God! I guess I should have known these people were out there because of how well you described them but, eek, it makes me want to stay away from humans in case they are any of the people you described.

I have almost exactly the same answer, but I have a few more reasons and wonder if you'd agree with them.

• The thief is the only option who isn't dangerous. The tweaker brings potentially dangerous people into your house, risks getting you both arrested for the meth in your home, and regularly prevents you from sleeping. Even if he just regularly kept you awake, that's unhealthy and dangerous enough on its own. The slob's hoarding can easily cause injury, disease, and damage to the home, and that's not to mention his anger.

• The tweaker is likely to become a thief, and the slob might as well be already. The tweaker will probably run out of money for drugs and get desperate, and as his roommate, you're the easiest person to steal from. The slob will destroy your property both by hoarding and in fits of rage.

• The thief is the most predictable. You know what the deal is, and you can figure out how to prevent the worst bits. The tweaker and the slob would keep me constantly on edge and afraid. Losing things is much easier than losing control.

My second choice, actually, would be the tweaker. That might seem like an odd thing to say, but I'd actually rather deal with being kept up and having strangers in the house than worry about the slob's fits of anger. I can lock myself in my room with a crowbar if there are other people around, but I can't live with somebody I'm afraid of. Also, since I use a wheelchair, living with a hoarder would trap me in my own home, and that's terrifying.

I do like that the slob has a cat, though. Anyway, are we allowed to seduce the thief? Maybe the tweaker, too?

We have the same order and for much the same reason, although with one difference (which I'll get to). The slob moved from my potential choice to the bottom of the list because he's doing damage all the time whereas the tweaker (I have no idea what this term means so I may be missing out on context) brings only the threat of damage. And, to be honest, what little I know of drug dealers, they're just normal people. Apart from one who committed a pretty gruesome murder which everybody knows about but nobody will publicly admit because it was the murder of someone who did exactly that.

The reason I hinted at early on in this is that people who take a lot of drugs can be kind of funny when they're altered.

A tweaker is a drug addict, but the term only applies to certain drugs. Meth is a common drug to use it for, as is crack, but I've also heard it applied to amphetamines and PCP.

You're right that drug dealers are pretty normal, and it was silly of me to allow my judgement to be clouded by a stigma that I know is inaccurate, especially as I've known people who deal. I think here, it might kind of depend on the drug, as some have connections to organised crime, but meth is made, not imported. Still, I'm unsure as to how safe it would be. People do get hurt in drug deals, but it depends a lot on the circumstances. I would still have a problem with having someone I don't really know in my bathroom at unpredictable times, and I stand by what I said about potential theft, although "likely" may be too strong a word. If it were something less addictive, I wouldn't be so concerned, but meth is kind of serious business.

I failed to consider that I'd almost certainly end up on meth if a meth dealer were in my house regularly. Hmm.

Weed dealers are normal people but almost all the people on meth Ive been around are anything but normal. Meth dealers are almost always on meth.

The tweaker. I stay up all night anyway and I hate thieves. I couldn't stay a week with the slob.

I'd keep a knife on me at all times, though.
Comment Hidden (show)
Damn, good poll.
I would have been OK with the Tweaker had it not been for the "he will keep you up all night" thing. Other than that, he doesn't sound worse than any other roommates I could have had.
I chose the slob, I can clean up better and light incense and keep to myself in my room. I have actually lived with a FAMILY of slobs and what you described sounded like a fairly mild version of their house. I pretty much gagged every time I went downstairs from all of the dog shit and pee-pee.
Thank God I live with my husband (who is a decent dude) and don't have to have any roommates.

The tweaker: Invites his drug dealer over.

Sorry, I'm not seeing how this is a choice?

I stay up all night any way and bashing Xbox while hyped up on meth would be fucking sick.

Haha, the second paragraph (the one about the thief) sounds like a description of my sister. She doesn't even live with us anymore and she still steals our stuff.:(

For the thief, would it be possible to get your things back? Or are they stolen and gone for good?

Often they are gone for good. Every once in a while the police find it in the pawn shop if you always report it.

All these characters are based off past people ive lived with.

I was going to pick the slob but I was told to read the descriptions so I did. Damn you...thank you. I guess I'll have to go with the thief since I have absolutely nothing of value, materially anyway.

The thief will steal the shiny objects that you decorate your nest with.

That or your plumage.

The Tweaker. The only thing I wouldn't be able to stand about him would be having my beer poured out. 8U Otherwise, I wouldn't care.

The tweaker! I don't mind what they do on their own time as long as they're clean and don't steal my stuff
Comment Hidden (show)
Tweaker, I'd just install a deadbolt on my door and keep all the important shit in my room. (Since I trust him, maybe, but like hell I trust his dealer.)
I'd definitely keep 911 on speed dial, though, in case of a bad drug deal or an overdose.
Comment Hidden (show)
I chose the tweaker, I would just lock the door to my room when need be. I am not of drinking age and don't enjoy beer,so I wouldn't really care about the pouring out booze thing.

I didn't choose the thief because sorry, I care about my stuff. <_<
Comment Hidden (show)
The Thief because

1. Girl (horribly shallow and sexist, sorry)

2. Hate drugs.

3. Overcame lazy my self and don't want someone like that around

4. Can easily hide/secure stuff.

5. Convince her to steal other people stuff.
Comment Hidden (show)
The thief because I live with one anyway but I just lock everything in my room.

I also live with a smackhead and that's pretty annoying. I'd have the thief any day.

What if your stuff was valuable and she didnt have anything good to steal because she pawns or sells anything she has of value?

She rarely had money either because she would spend it right away on cigerettes or other crap like hair straighteners. She pawned my nintendo wii for $20 and bought cigerettes one time. The pawn shop will not give you your moneys worth.

I'm pretty sure the tweaker would be a slob and a thief anyway

Interesting poll, OP.

I chose the slob. I have known tweakers, and that is not something that I want to be around. I fucking HATE thieves and would probably end up kicking their ass. The slob would probably drive me even more crazy, but I could probably deal with him the best out of the three I think.

At first I was thinking the tweaker, but then I thought I can just buy a bad ass safety box.

But the food. THE FOOD I NEED THE FOOD.
Comment Hidden (show)
I'd take the thief. Lock the door to my bedroom and I'm all good. I don't really have much in terms of things anyone would want to steal anyways.
Comment Hidden (show)
The thief. And keep anything valuable on me or locked away. Also sometimes I might set a trap so leave something out to steal with a tracker and as soon as it's stollen call the police and have him/her arrested. Also i'd probably have a way of having that person banned from the pawn shop.
I could handle the slob until you said he urinates in a bottle.
And the tweaker, i'd eventually kill him out of annoyance. So wouldn't want that.
Comment Hidden (show)
I guess I would have to pick the tweaker. However, I do have a few rules.

1. Let me sleep at night.
2. Leave my beer and 420 alone. Violating this rule will have severe consequences such as me hiding lighters, butane torches, & glass pipes. If this doesn't phase them then I swear I'll flush their bag of shit down the toilet. =-O
3. I'm gonna need extra money for the electric bill. Those late night sessions with every light on and every single electronic device plugged in isn't free.
4. Check your dealer at the door. If you need to recop then you can hitchhike, jump on your skateboard, or hoof it. I don't care how you do it. The last thing I need is being raided by the cops. Btw, I know I mentioned that I partake in smoking herb. I'm not being hypocritical because it is legal where I live as long as you have a medical card.

If they can't abide by these rules then they can get the hell out. Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya :-)

This is actually a tough question to answer, I would have to say the slob, the thief I would probably just kick in the ass if they stole something and the tweaker wouldnt bother me as much.
Comment Hidden (show)
The theif. I don't associate with tweakers for a number of reasons including but not limited to

1. It would tarnish my good reputation.

2. They're highly unstable, unpredictable, unreliable and manipulative.

3. His habit of inviting their dealer over is unacceptable due to the risk involved in allowing drug deals to be transacted in my home.

And now the reasons why I wouldn't live with the slob.

1. I don't have the time, money or inclination to deal with his bullshit.

2. His inability to pay rent and fits of rage are entirely unacceptable as is his hoarding.

3. Hoarding is disgusting and creates a great environment for disease and mould as well as cluttering up my home.

4. I own cats. I don't need his nasty, uncared for cat potentially giving my cats worms or other maladies.

Between tweaker and fat-slobs you do know tweakers are thief's too hell im going with the fatslobs fuck being robbed by a tweaker.

I chose the Thief, since she seems to be the only one who's not religious. I can take having my shit taken as long as she's not religious. Not sure if the Slob is religious, but I assumed he is since he's watching Christian TV.

You would actually be suprised.
The thief was mormon.
The slob was not religious but watched christian tv because there were only 3 channels with the hack box he was using to watch tv.
