  • I would put it very simply.  Step up and chip in or find some place else to live.

  • I put up with a roommate like you described for 7 months before said roommate moved out because I said " since I do 95% of the work you pay 95% of the pills. Worked like a charm. Seriously though if its someone that you have to harp over and you can't get them to toe the line you might have to go to your own extremes to do so. Good luck
