Never worked at my house. Always ended up with trash laying all over the floor and then no one was touching it with a 10 foot pole.
To OP: I lived with four other guys and had two roommates who never cleaned shit. We had a lot of parties too where we'd have multiple kegs so cups and all kinds of trash would be all over the place upstairs and down. One always conveniently claimed Sunday morning that he had to go to the library by no later than 11 a.m. and slip out when everyone else was asleep and the other one would either spend all of Sunday out with his girlfriend or at home and then would come home Sunday night and make comments about the place being a shithole. By Monday no one really cared enough to clean stuff up and it'd be a half-assed clean at best. It kind of sucks but unless you just act like a huge girl about it at the risk of being called out for being a huge girl about it, nothing will get done. Just got to be like 'Hey, clean. Stop being a lazy fuck and help me'. If you toss them a little bit of rope and make it a team effort, they'll be more willing to help more often.
Also, don't pile dishes in the person's room or on a person's desk. That's weak and it's a good way to get your dishes thrown in the street.

Might have to try that one myself.
Haha. Just got to keep after them. As long as you get them off their ass and get them working for that first 30 seconds, they'll be on their way to helping out. It's just about getting them off their asses.
My roommates were pretty lazy and magnetized to computers/Halo but once we got going on a project for even just five minutes we were like a Cambodian sweatshop.
We start cleaning and my roommate just sits there or goes up and hides. Next time I'll yell. And I can yell.
Yell it loud, yell it proud.
There's gotta be a student poor enough to clean the place for $5.
Keith, I'll give you $5 a week to clean our house.
hahaha, your roommate must have massive balls to pull shit like that
I think he takes advantage of us. But shits about to hit the fan.
The problem is I'd have to do this like every few days. I mean, just on the shelf where I keep my Xbox controllers/games, there are currently 8 empty pop cans. And unfortunately "empty" does not mean empty. He insists that the bottom of the can doesn't taste as good, and thus leaves a little at the bottom, then leaves it there while playing CoD with high school friends all day. This also holds true for bottles. And when I take the "empties" to recycling, I have to empty out the crap at the bottom of each can and even then it's still a mess. Everything else is similarly messy and smelly.
In short "stop being a lazy fuck" seems like a viable option.
I hate when somebody knows they're being disappointing, and the response is, "we're expected to be disappointing"
Dude is going to become an obese pig it sounds like with all that high fructose corn syrup he's drinking.
This drives me crazy because if mommy or daddy are not there to help them or do it for them they won't do it, and women are just as bad as men these days. It's disgusting.
This one woman had clothes all over her bedroom, on the bed, on the furniture, all over the floor. I made a joke about buying her hangers.

Hey now, theres some responsibility that comes with this advice.
When you see a beer, you drink it and slam the ca
Keith Stone is deflecting blame from his own issues.
Don't be a pussy is the only answer. Take all of their dirty dishes or whatever in the sink, tell them to clean it. If not done in a reasonable time, throw all of their crap into the dumpster/trash or pile it on their bed on their room.
This is how to deal with it. And when they bitch, tell them to fuck off. I had to do this with a roommate. Would never clean up. Took all of his empty beer cans, and put them all on his bed.
My roommate would make pasta, poor the sauce in and eat it out of the pot. Then he'd put the pot under his bed. I shit you not.
If he does that to beer too, all witnesses are legally obliged to kick his ass. You never, ever, leave a wounded soldier behind! It’s against the Geneva Convention. Look it up.
