But maybe I'm forgetting about the pleasantries of living with a Stranger. One time, I came back from classes to find my Roommate's girlfriend napping, which should be up there in Awkward Roommate Moments. You can't wake her up, but now you can't do anything in the room without being a little Buffalo Bill creepy. So I pulled the fake cough and "Sorry, did I wake you up?" routine, which might seem pathetic now, but what would you have done?
