Am I Being Unreasonable? (Roommate ettiquette)

I'll try to be brief, but essentially I'm sharing a college dorm with a friend (mistake #1), and his everyday living habits are driving me batshit insane. Essentially, he sees nothing wrong with farting and burping as loud as humanly possible several times per hour he is awake. He thinks I'm crazy to tell him to knock it off, and that burping and farting are signs of being a "true man." I explain that on occasion is normal, but several times an hour, every hour, is downright obnoxious. I think it stems for the five pounds of muscle milk he drinks a day in order to sustain his legendary 135lb flat-bench lifts. I explain to him that yes, burping and farting are normal body functions, but when I have to do them, I make every attempt to be subtle about it, rather than project it like he does. His counter is, "that's what little bitches do" despite the fact that I could level him. I'm somewhat used to behavior like this, having been in the Army for a few years, but I'd like a little more common courtesy and "class," if you will, within my living area. I put up with his bong collection and the fact that he smokes in the room several times a day and generally lives like a degenerate loser. Naturally, I'm inclined to think I'm not being unreasonable, but I'd like to get an outside opinion on the situation.

Nope, thats pretty nasty even for dudes in college. Tell him that you are going to start kicking him in the balls every time he farts from now often, just say it casually but so he hears you. Next time he farts kick him in the balls and he'll get the idea.

You're being perfectly reasonable. Not sure how you could get him to stop though.

Interestingly, me and my housemate both try and out do each other in the same way. We both however find it highly entertaining so aren't bothered by each other. Its funny to see a high flying accountant come home from work and belch the alphabet. If we have guests round we stop and I'm sure if one of us had taken offence in the first place when we originally started our belching competition when we moved in together we would have stopped.

Your housemate sounds immature.

Not that unreasonable. But on the other hand, if he can't even do that shit in his own house, then where? Maybe he can fart and burp loudly when you aren't around. I mean, he doesn't blaze up when you're around does he?

Still better than the single roommate ive ever had that publicly masturbated near constantly (didnt even care that i was in the room), left rotting food all around, literally never saw him shower once, and left cumrags all over the place.

All in an 8x10 room.

omg

*clears head*

No, you're not being unreasonable. However, the point was made, where in the world can he fart/belch besides home? I fart an absolute ridiculous amount -- there is no way in hell I'm going to go to the bathroom every single time. Holding it in is terrible too, feels horrendous.

Welp, TMI, oops

I fart and burp at least a few times a day, the difference is I am able to do so without making any noise, I don't understand why he can't do the same. He doesn't simply do it at a normal level, but rather seems to project it as much as possible, as if making some kind of statement. He doesn't do that shit when girls are over, so I know he's capable of being more subtle with it.

Eh, you're not being unreasonable, but farting/burping loudly is, at least to me, one of those college annoyances that you put up with. Do it for now, get out in May, get a single or a new roommate next year, and have a funny story about a shitty roommate.

be sure to mention to him if he's going to extend this courtesy to some hooker he wants to dip his balls in, the LEAST he could do is extend the same courtesy to his boy. know what i'm sayin?

if he keeps pullin the 'manly' line on you, buck up and move out and let him be slob by himself.

from the sounds of it though he doesn't care what you think or feel about the situation. giving a shit about his friends doesn't really seem to be his M.O. he'd much likely rather ridicule you then admit his absurdity.

You're not being unreasonable, but if that's the worst of your complaints, I wouldn't worry about it that much (unless they stink to high heaven)

Not that it isn't obnoxious, but I agree, it could be way worse. Just be glad he doesn't jerk off in front of you.

Yeah, it's not unreasonable, but it's a small room and he doesn't exactly have a place to go. Of all the roommate issues you could have, this one is minor (he showers, right?). I'd just hold out a little bit longer and find a new place for the next quarter with some different people, as ROTS suggested.

I can't see why you'd care...but if you don't like it, then talk to your RA and get a new roommate. Sometimes you can switch mid-semester; dramatize the situation if need be.

Just be happy you didn't get a goth psycho who liked to put butt plugs up his ass

Keep in mind this is his friend he's rooming with.

Which IMO means it's even more less likely he's going to be able to reason with his roommate (friend) to have him cut that shit out. If I asked any of my friends they'd tell me to shut the fuck up and probably fart in my face, or in the least I doubt they'd take it seriously.

He could wait till the dorm lease term is up and then get a place where at least everyone has their own private room with a door.

Or find his roommate a girlfriend
