You'd think these kids could just work it out on their own. Sign of the times and helicopter parents when the kids don't know how to handle basic roommate issues.

Back in the Dark Ages(the early 70's) I woke up once with my then roommate in bed with her boyfriend. I think they must have come in very late and drunk and collapsed on the bed in their clothes. I got up and sneaked out until I was reasonably certain they were gone. The kids today have it much better than we did as most colleges have tiny private bedrooms where you share a bath and small living space/kitcheonette with a couple of other people, "suites" I guess you would call them.

Back when I went to college I had to sleep in a box while my roommate had sex with four Yorkshire men.

What if you're doing your roommate? The logistics boggles the mind...

We had bunkbeds. I can remember some really interesting drunken nights. Talk about syncopation.

I'm pretty sure no sex occurred in my dorm room, regardless of who was there. No beer drinking either.

Really? Why? Just because a topic combines the words sex and something else that rhymes with erectile dysfunction doesn't guarantee a popular thread.

Heyduke, you definitely don't have to have kids to witness helocopter parenting--just have a sister who teaches college!

And yeah, the washcloth, note, door hanger stolen from a hotel...whatever...that was the clue, Janet.
