During my first year as a RA, I was placed an all male hall, of mostly first year students. I was in charge of the second and third floors. Half way through the first term, Dan, a first year resident, knocked on my door asking to speak to me in private. So I invited him into my room. He said that he was concerned about this roommate. He said that the roommate was becoming very bad tempered and he had some “issues” which other residents living in the same floor disliked.
So I went to talk to Dan’s roommate and see what was up. He kept telling me that nothing was wrong and that he was about to head to the shower. As soon as I walked out of his room, another resident called me in and asked me to wait in there for a few minutes. What happened next was very fast…
I heard someone from Dan and his roommate’s room run out and slam the bathroom door behind him. And all the rest of the people near to me seemed to know what just happened, because they were all laughing. Puzzled, I walked over to the bathroom to find that I couldn’t open the door, because someone was pushing it from the other side. I asked what was going on, and one of the residents that was laughing at the time told me that it was Dan’s roommate trying to take a shower, only that he is not using a towel and he is totally naked, well, semi-naked since he still had his glasses on. Dan said, this was what he was trying to hint me to me earlier on, because his roommate runs back and forth to the bathroom naked every night, and that many misfortunate girls had met him during one of his trips.
The story continued…unfortunately, Dan’s roommate doesn’t allow anyone to use the bathroom once he is in it (it is a big bathroom with two showers and two toilets), he tends to hold the door until he is sure that everyone has cleared, and as a result, he stays in the bathroom for more than 2 hours each evening.
I stayed on the hallway waiting for the roommate to get out of the shower to hopefully talk to him about this. After about an hour or so, I noticed the bathroom door started to open a little, and a head pops out looking around, as if he was searching for something. When he saw me standing there, he ducked back into the bathroom and slammed the door. The same thing happens for another 3 times, and I decide to return to my room, so that he can get back to his, and talk to him later when he’s fully dressed.
Meanwhile, many students (including Dan) came to my room to talk to me about the roommate. It so happens that the roommate has told others that he has a towel and that he does use it. But according to many “victims”, he has not used his towel a single time. And according to Dan, he has had many “accidents” on his bed, and throughout the term their room had a very noticeable smell of urine, which is another headache for Dan, since none of his friends wanted to enter the room.
Two weeks later, the roommate’s behavior still hadn’t changed, and so a group of unhappy residents decided to call security while he was taking a shower. As soon as security entered the bathroom, he asked Nick whether he had a towel, and the roommate responded yes but was not able to show him one. Security asked for his name, and he said: “Jacob Allorbie”, then he screamed at security saying that all the residents wanted to kill him and that they were all “Gay” and that “They should die in hell”. Security charged him for indecent exposure, and he was then placed into a single room WITH a bathroom, so that he wouldn’t feel the need to use a towel.
However, during Dan’s roommate’s second year he got himself an international roommate who barely spoke any English. They lived in a separate building from where I was an RA. The new roommate happened to be my friend, and I would often hear him complain about Dan’s old roommate, (who was his roommate now), who apparently slept naked at night on his back…with an erection from time to time.
Not a very pleasant experience. The new roommate (after Dan) was freaked out at first, but now he is used to it.
