Now that is some harshness.
2006-04-03 02:19:53 PM  
And the roommates weren't arrested for theft, why?
2006-04-03 02:19:58 PM  
That ain't right. They could have sold it to a Russian emigre for $500.
2006-04-03 02:20:01 PM  
Hope dumbasses enjoy their stint in Federal prison for wire fraud among other charges.
2006-04-03 02:20:34 PM  
Argh. I thought about it.
2006-04-03 02:21:35 PM  
Hmm... Amusing because credit fraud/identity theft is funny? I guess my sense of humor does have its limits.
2006-04-03 02:22:41 PM  
Nice admition of fraud. Have fun in Federal PMITA prison, J.H.

Used to steal our food and liquor from the fridge even after repeated warnings. He never cleaned, rarely bathed and seldom smiled.

I had a roommate who drank seven cans of Red Bull in one sitting "to see what would happen," broke a punching bag by hanging from it, got stuck while climbing a tree, set fire to his plastic desk out of boredom, and cleaned up the toilet (after it was clogged) with a mop and then used the same mop to clean the floor.

"This guy was an asshole, so we kicked him out and stole from him. Well, not from him, so much, because he'd just report the card stolen and Visa would cover it, passing the price tag on to everyone else who has one of those cards. But he would have to call them, and probably get put on hold for a while and get real annoyed. Which is, of course, worth sticking to everyone else. We're soooo much better than that jerk!"
2006-04-03 02:23:51 PM  
Hahaha! Crimes are funny when you've got a blog.
2006-04-03 02:23:52 PM  
Rarely smiled or bathed is a reason to get kicked out?

I'd better change my ways before I need a new place to live.
2006-04-03 02:24:56 PM  
Oh, well, then N. S. Radieaux, that gave you every right to clean out his bank account and wallet and take a vacation to the Bahamas with what you got out of it.

Okay, no, not really.

But it does definitely qualify him for some sort of violence...It wasn't your punching bag or ceiling, was it?
2006-04-03 02:24:58 PM  
Laugh it up, douche. It's all fun and games until someone nabs your CC numbers and charges outrageous things to it. I don't believe in "karma", but you'll get yours as well you immature waste of space.
2006-04-03 02:25:06 PM  
Uh oh. I just realized I used a bad word in the above. I'm sorry.

/hangs head in shame
2006-04-03 02:25:34 PM  
i had a roommate in college who thought that a big mac covered all four major food groups.

/not applicable, but oh well
2006-04-03 02:26:03 PM  
But I can feel the food stealing aspect. I have to buy food my roomie doesn't like. He'll eat my bread, cold cuts, cheese, and prepared rice (I don't really care about the rice, considering it's like 10 cents worth), but he won't touch tofu , lentils, or any 'good' cooked food with a 10 foot pole. So in a way, I win because I have to make better meals.
2006-04-03 02:28:06 PM  
I had a roomate that died. meh.....roomate threads....but I did not, repeat did not steal his gun collection nor did I steal any of them...honest
2006-04-03 02:28:12 PM  
This was a crime yes, but it was literally a delicious crime of revenge.
2006-04-03 02:28:21 PM  
This blogger is an idiot. Don't understand why FARK wants to link to cocky thieves and liars.
2006-04-03 02:28:37 PM  
$10 says these asses vote Democratic.
2006-04-03 02:29:25 PM  
xolik....cause neocons would have ran up the bill to at least a grand.
2006-04-03 02:29:46 PM  

I don't think anyone else has mentioned this, but the roomate was probably out $50 (assuming there was fraud-protection back then...).

So....good for you for sticking it to the man! I mean VISA.

Whatever. I want my 2 minutes back.
2006-04-03 02:30:57 PM  
I had a very similar experience! We kicked the guy out, stole all of his belongings, had his father killed, his mother and sisters sodomized by the Harlem Globetrotters, and forced him to watch all of the above. Then we decapitated him and used his head as a hood ornament on my Oldsmobile.

I think we taught him a lesson, as he never darkened our door again.
2006-04-03 02:31:07 PM  
I would have gone shopping for TVs and computers not going to a restaurant.
2006-04-03 02:31:22 PM  
2006-04-03 02:28:12 PM Teucer

Revenge on who? The actual card owner probably did not pay a dime of this. Who did? The charges were either reversed and the restaurant had to eat it (haha, pun) or the charge end up paid by the rest of us in the form of intrest.
2006-04-03 02:34:07 PM  
The ostracized roomate had to have been a pure dumbass to not realize what had happened. Did he forget his old address the day after he moved out?
2006-04-03 02:35:39 PM  
Can't expect much else from someone who hails from Detroit, the butthole of America.
2006-04-03 02:36:26 PM  
yay credit card fraud! why hadn't I thought of such revenge?
2006-04-03 02:41:32 PM  
Nice. Post a blog entry about how you commited identity theft and fraud. Is there a statute of limitations in fraud cases?
2006-04-03 02:44:25 PM  
Nice, dining at the expense of others! I tip my hat to you sir.

2006-04-03 02:47:40 PM  
So that's what happened to my credit card.
2006-04-03 02:48:46 PM  
xolik: $10 says these asses vote Democratic.

$1 million says they don't vote.

I had a roommate who dealt marijuana from our apartment (within 500 feet of a school), charged $500 of porn to my Comcast account and kept hiding the bills, glued pages of porn magazines to his wall (on MY deposit), smoked indoors (despite me being allergic), put his fists through half a dozen walls during a flipout only a tazer would snap him out of and tried to frame me for stealing his friend's TV and DVD player when he needed drug money (I got the SNs written down and gave the info to pawn shops. He got nailed on a few small counts that added up to a year in the pen. Helped that the prosecutor was a PC repair client of mine.

And while in jail, drank what he thought was smuggled cheap whiskey but turned out to be methanol, or so a friend who was being held for driving his mom to the hospital on a suspended license told me.

What's the problem with methanol? It metabolizes into chemicals (formaldehyde, formic acid) that attack the optic nerves and other neural structures. He's permanently nerve-blind.

He deserved punishment but didn't deserve that.

/what a dumbass
2006-04-03 02:51:54 PM  
It's called fraud and it's illegal.
2006-04-03 02:54:18 PM  
The beauty of this article is I'm sure that the statute of limitations have probably passed.

BTW, drinking methanol rocks. I prefer mine in antifreeze.
2006-04-03 02:55:36 PM  
Die in a fire, crappy blog author.

N. S. Radieaux
You told that story on the energy drink thread. Sad that I remember that...but I do.

camaroash: And while in jail, drank what he thought was smuggled cheap whiskey but turned out to be methanol, or so a friend who was being held for driving his mom to the hospital on a suspended license told me.

Shoulda gone for the prison wine or prison beer.

Never been in prison, can you smuggle in malt extract and a small packet of ale yeast?
2006-04-03 02:59:13 PM  
What's funny is that the blog author thinks the ex-roommate is the jerk!
2006-04-03 03:02:17 PM  
$10 says these asses vote Democratic

$15 says you have no friends and the ones you do are lying to you.
2006-04-03 03:04:55 PM  
There was this one time in band camp...

and it was like totally cool!
2006-04-03 03:08:12 PM  
There goes a minute of my life I'll never get back. Here's another one for the submitter:

One time our housemate got totally drunk and passed out and we were drunk too and we shaved off his eyebrows and wrote all over his face. It was totally cool and funny. The End

"I had a roommate who . . . glued pages of porn magazines to his wall (on MY deposit)"

Camaroash . . . that wasn't glue!

/and it was HIS deposit.
2006-04-03 03:20:35 PM  
I had a roommate who was a real loser. Never talked, never smiled, didn't know how to form a dialogue. Yet when his girlfriend came up, he'd act like we're best buddies and that he's the big man on campus or something.

Couldn't wash his dishes even after being told repeatedly, so it got to a point where I put all his dirty plates on his bed to remind him. Didn't say a word to me for three months after that. I woulda kicked him out, except it was on-campus apartment and so there were signed agreements and that sort of nonsense involved.
2006-04-03 03:24:28 PM  
Felonies are funny.
2006-04-03 03:27:13 PM  
My horror roommate was this choad named James, or "sack of shiat" over the course of five months he raided our CD collections (it was that long ago) to sell for drug money, moved a pair of squatters into our living room, created a massive ass groove on our couch, stole our food, never did a dish, and cut a deal with the management company to not let us know he wasn't paying rent... which was tacked onto our bill owed after vacating the apartment.
2006-04-03 04:04:35 PM  
All I want to know is, did anyone click on the "First Time Lesbian" link...?

Because that's all I'm really interested in on that page. And I can't click on it at work.
2006-04-03 04:08:44 PM  
Hope dumbasses enjoy their stint in Federal prison for wire fraud among other charges.

Beat me to it. I hope they enjoy being charged for federal credit card fraud.
2006-04-03 04:19:43 PM  
Ass Groove (pops)

Because knowing is 17/32 the battle.
