There's no better way to start off college than by proving yourself to be a "ticking time bomb"—or being forced to live with one. The latter is UCLA freshman Winnie Chen's predicament. Less than 48 hours after Chen and her two future roommates, Guistinna and Ashly, received each other's contact information at the start of the month, Ashly sent a rather insane email, which Chen posted to Twitter. Claiming her roommates had ignored previous emails, Ashly demanded a top bunk, one of two white closets, and a desk near the window of their dorm, per USA Today. This "is what I'm expecting once I arrive at the dorm and I won't be in the mood for any arguing or other nonsense," she wrote. "I'll turn it into a bigger situation so don't try me."

"Sorry but not that sorry for the attitude," she added. "I don't like being ignored because that's just rude … so I decided to make it clear now on the kind of person I am and what I will and will not take." After Guistinna sent a reply bashing her "sense of entitlement," Ashly accused her of "fighting fire with fire." She then described herself as "really chill" but also an "over-analyzer" with "anger issues" and little patience—essentially a "ticking time bomb that sets off when certain things I don't like happen to me," she wrote. "If that scares you then you can request another roommate." Unfortunately for Chen, "housing never responded to my request," she says. Users suggest Chen should arrive early when she moves in Thursday to "fart on her pillow," per Mashable. (Read another college-roommate-hell story.)
