What did your roommate do wrong?

Editor's note: Yes, disagreements over sleep times are very common,
and yet the issue is surprisingly under-discussed in the manners literature.
College dormitories seem quite aware of it, though; see "Further Reading"
at the bottom of this page.

	5. Prefers sleeping on the floor because its "more comfortable".

Uh huh. Is this actually hurtful to you, or are you just being judgmental?

Ah, you make some good points. You're right, a roommate shouldn't be creating 
hazards, nor borrowing (nor even moving) your stuff without permission. 

And as for the bird parts and the open-bathroom-door thing -- Gross! :^) 

Thanks for many good ideas.

Editor's note:
Pretending not to know what you're talking about is a sign that he's doing it on purpose. I would guess.
