"I lived in a house in Galway with a guy and I can categorically say that he was the absolute worst.
"I've lived with people for years and I seem to attract oddballs – and that includes a girl who slept with a guy in my bed and left the (stained) sheets on and never told me – but this guy was on a whole other level.
"He moved in with his cats and dog. They pissed everywhere and when I'd ask him to clean it up I usually got screamed at. The absolute worst was when I got in one day and he was giving his dog a suppository ON OUR KITCHEN TABLE.
I do not miss him
"He thought it was the most normal thing in the world and carried on talking to me about the weather. He didn't even wipe down the table afterwards! So of course I had to. He never cleaned, he used to engage me in weird meandering conversations and he was generally a prick.
"It all ended with him getting all of us evicted from the house. He refused to pay a bill (for which he owed €300) and when one of my housemates arrived back with people after a night out he, for some reason known onto himself, made a fake assault claim against one of the guests.
"He rang the landlord and the Gardaí, sobbing at 5am, then moved out later that day – but not before he cried in front of me for about twenty minutes. I do not miss him."
