Basic Rules For Living Among Others Without Getting Your Ass Beat, shit like respecting other’s privacy and belongings, don’t call motherfuckers names or talk shit, that sort of thing – no big deal really because you either got to be friends with your roomies or you swapped room assignments around until you ended up with your friends.

Even in a room with a couple roommates there’s still privacy, even if it’s in your own mind. You just have to learn how to close that curtain. If I was in the common area reading my book, I was cool, but if I was in my bunk don’t even bother talking to me because you’re not even going to get a grunt back.
