UCLA Freshmen Roommates Take Spat Over Dorm Furniture to Next Level on Twitter


Posted on: September 18th, 2016 by ABC News No Comments

ABCNews.com(LOS ANGELES) — Freshmen college students at UCLA have moved into their dorm room after a dramatic dispute over beds and more went viral online.

It all started when an unnamed freshman student sent a demanding list of expectations to her two future roommates before moving into a shared dorm. The two other students, identified online as Winnie and Guistinna, declined to reply, sending the sender over the edge and led to an even sterner response.

Winnie decided to air her future roommate’s list of expectations on Twitter earlier this month, before the girls had even met in person.

The list mainly focused on the girl’s furniture expectations, “I’ll take the top bunk of the bunk bed that has a bottom and top bunk,” and stressed that she would not take the bunk bed with a desk underneath. “I’m also taking one of the white closets…I don’t care for which one it is, just know I’m taking one of them,” she stated.

The list didn’t stop there, “I want the desk that’s near the window. Plain and simple.”

Just in case the roommates didn’t already understand, she added, “I won’t be in the mood for any arguing or other nonsense because one of you two decided to deliberately disregard this email. If needed be I’ll turn it into a bigger situation so don’t try me.”

The Twitter-verse went crazy and chimed in with various responses to Winnie’s post of the aggressive email. One person wrote, “I’d be all up in that top bunk when she arrived.”

Many others offered their well wishes for Winnie and anxiously awaited updates to her roommate drama.

Guistinna eventually responded to the list writing, “We appreciate that you are letting us know your preferences.” BUT?…”GIIRRRL, WE HAVEN”T EVEN MET YET … I’m not here to fight with you…but I am not going to allow anyone to talk to me or Winnie like that.”

The roommate who first sent the demanding email replied by writing, “You throwing it right back along with other snarky, unnecessary comments is just fighting fire with fire.”

She added, “I’m also really chill too. But as you can see from my previous email, I am like a ticking time bomb that sets off when certain things happen to me.” The roommate also said she wouldn’t mind “starting over.”

UCLA officials told ABC News they have been in contact with all interested parties and hope for an amicable solution.
