I Think Saddam Is Alive, And Is My Roommate...

I have a roommate here at this dorm I live in, and he is extremely bizarre. First, everytime I turn on the AC, he goes apeshit and comes out and turns it off, and then mumbles something. The AC is for the living room area, he hides in his room all day, and the AC doesn't even affect there. He's just doing it to be an asshole.
He also spouts out Anti-Semitic rants all the time, I finally told him I was Jewish so he'd shut up.
He's kind of a hermit, and he says all sorts of bizarre things.
He's a control freak and a germophobe too.

I don't think Saddam Hussein died, he just got cosmetic surgery and enrolled in school, and moved in here.

Three words:

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Seriously though, I'd consider moving. Explain the situation to your residence life people. Living with a roomate is never easy, but some people are just impossible, and being miserable because of a roomate with serious issues just isn't worth it.

Why should he have to move because his roommate is a dick?

A couple of pranks to screw with his head.

1 - "Penny" his door shut so he can't get out.
2 - Freeze some urine on a cookie sheet and then flick it under his door while he is out. It'll shatter everywhere and melt and he'll have no idea what happened.
3 - Find an album cover (you know those things us old folks had before CDs) fill it with shaving cream and then place it just under his door. Stomp on it and fill his room, preferably with him in it, full of shaving cream bits.

Good stuff!

Though I won't take responsibility if he tries to kill you in his torture chamber.

Because the situation isn't going to change or get any better. It is notoriously difficult to get a disruptive student kicked out of the dorms. I know. I was a floor moderator in a college dorm or two years. IMHO Copaair has two choices. He can stay where he is and be miserable, or he can do something about it. It may be inconvenient in the short term, but longer-term sanity outweighs the short-term inconvenience in this instance.

As appealing and reasonable as it seems, the desired course of action (removal of a problem) is always more difficult than the removal of oneself from the problem situation. This applies to every aspect of life. The more action one takes, the more one controls one's situation.

Well, everytime I have people over, no matter what they look like, I tell them they are my Jewish friends, and that we are going over to the Temple on Saturday. Everytime I have a girl over, I always comment how she is a "nice Jewish girl" and he has no idea what to do.
It's funny as hell. I'm not Jewish, but I'll act like it to drive him nuts.

Another reason he may be Saddam...he's obsessed with the Gulf War. I had a Super Nintendo game going, and he came in and told me that Mario 3 was based on the Gulf War. Shit like that.

You should find an Arab guy to come over and play Jew. That'll fuck his mind good.

I also forgot to say that he has no idea how to talk to women, and he' s got to be about 30-35 years old.
He told my brother some girl wouldn't give him her phone number, but she gave him her room number, and he said he was going to go show up at her room bucknaked.

Weird fucking guy.

and Mark, good idea.

Sounds to me like your roommate isn't being an asshole, and isn't 'crazy' either. Sounds to me like he's autistic. Let's see: he lives his life 'apart', secluded in his room. He reacts strangely to fairly normal every-day situations, has a limited number of interests, but is pretty obsessed about those he has. He has difficulty communicating ('has no idea how to talk to women'). And he's a control freak. I'd be very surprised if he turned out not to be autistic.

A word of advice: don't try to mess with his mind. Don't try any of the things some people are advising you to do. Autistic people often have a pretty high tolerance level, but once a certain line is crossed, they will snap completely, and when that happens, things could be bad. They sometimes have no idea of their own strength, and the both of you could get hurt.

Take it from someone who deals with autistic people on a regular basis.

Wait, if you are 21-25 then you're probably not a freshman, so why didn't you get to pick your own roommate going into this semester? I guess maybe you and some friends have a suite and the housing staff put him into an empty room that you guys couldn't fill... That sucks! I do like the idea of playing loud jewish music all the time. I bet he's also a homophobe, so you should bring over some gay friends and have them hit on him while wearing yarmulkes. Mario 3 based on the gulf war, eh? Strange fellow! What is he doing going to college as a miserable 35 year old anyway?

Yes. That is what ended up happening.

I have no idea. We tried being nice to him, but it didn't work out well.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

I beg to differ. Most of us OCD'ers keep our ruminations to ourselves because we are both aware and ashamed of them. Although the AC issue may seem like obsessive behavior, the mumbling, hermit-like behavior and anti-semitic rants are more indicative of paranoid or delusional thinking. That is less likely to be found in an anxiety disorder (OCD) than in a psychotic disorder (schizophrenia or possibly an extreme phase of bipolar disorder.) He may be having a delusion that the AC is involved in his thought processes.

Copaair, I would strongly suggest that you go to your campus health service and talk to someone about getting help for your roommate. Your roommate may not even be able to distinguish his inappropriate behavior if he is having a psychotic episode. He needs help that you can't give him. Even if you do not live on campus, the school is responsible for the safety of its students.

Good luck.



Up, up and away!

Isn't he a little old to be living in a dorm? I would talk to someone, especially with Virginia Tech still being fresh in most people memories.

Could he be a Gulf War vet who has some unresolved issues? Even if he isn't, why be an asshole when you can take the higher ground and maybe get the guy some help? I would still recommend moving out but the guy has a problem. No one chooses to be that messed up.
