Dear Miss Smartypants,
My interactions with my roommate's boyfriend have been fairly limited, but just as I was getting ready to leave the other day, I heard him buzz into the building and start yelling as he went down the hallway, "I'm here! I'm here! Don't worry, I'm here!" My roommate ran to the door and threw it open, and a major lip lock began, complete with over-exaggerated mouth noises and "mmm"s on his part. And I was right there. I checked in with my roommate's old roommate, and it turns out that this was not a special occasion but how they regularly greet each other. It's disgusting. I can't tell if this is above and beyond or just the price you pay when you split the rent with someone. Plus, I already though the guy was a douche. This just confirms it.
Fed Up Roommate
Dear They Already Have a Bit?
How long have they been dating that they already need a bit? Maybe they're just that excited to be reunited, but it sounds like a bit, which could mean that they are headed for a break up. Anyway, no, rudeness is not the price you pay for having a roommate. It's all well and good if they want to do that when you're not around or think that you can't see/hear them (and ew, by the way), but it's quite another thing to do that right in front of you. The next time they do, loudly "Ahem" to make them aware of your presence. Reasonable human beings should be instantly embarrassed that you caught the show, but it does not seem like you are dealing with reasonable human beings. You may have to follow this up with a pointed "I'm right here" or even ask that they not do that in front of you.
Feel free to add that they are blocking the doorway,
