My roommate is unorganized and messy. She constantly leaves things out and on the floor. She almost never puts anything away. I am tired of cleaning up after her like I'm a maid. I want the house to be clean but I'm tired of her making it dirty.
There are three or more ways that we could work this situation out. These three solutions are compromise, avoidance, and win/lose.
Compromise: Tell her that I don't want to feel like a maid anymore. If i'm going to clean up after her, she can pay me.
Avoidance: I can stay in my room so I won't be bothered by her messiness.
Win/Lose: Just continue to clean up her mess. Even though I have to sacrifice, I get a clean house.
