My College Horror Story: My Roommate’s Boyfriend Walked in on Me in the Bathroom

By Oore Olayinka on July 13, 2017

Cringe. Shudders. Shrieks.

I did all those things on this day. A day that started out as normal as any other day turned out to be a horrific day. But before I delve into the horrors of this story, let me provide a little background information. My lovely roommate and I have been roommates and best friends for two years. She is my everything — my confidante, advisor, comrade. In fact, as they say in my country, she is my “personal person.” Now, insert her boyfriend of six months. *Ugh, eye roll*

In the initial stages of their relationship, we were friends. Like, we were so cool, I used to refer to him as my brother. But as things between them started progressing, her boyfriend and I developed issues. I mean, we’re not enemies, but we’re not the best of friends either. Let’s say, we’re “frenemies.” Yup, that’s it.

Okay, so let’s delve into the horror story. On that fateful day, he came over as normal. I mean, I’m so used to seeing his face at our apartment. It doesn’t even phase me anymore. So I went to the bathroom. Did I mention my roommate and I happen to share a communal bathroom? A simple pee turned into one ultra-horrific moment in my life.

Back to this fateful uneventful day, I went to pee as is normal for, you know, all human beings. Looking back now, I realize the tragic flaw lies in the fact that I failed to lock the bathroom door. Like why? Anyway, after peeing, I stood up. At this point in time, I got carried away by my phone. So there I was, standing in the middle of the bathroom with my pants and underwear still in a bunch below my knees. My dumb self was texting in that half naked state! And it happened!

The door opened and it was my roommate’s boyfriend. I froze. He froze. I’m black so my melanin prevents me from blushing. But I’m so sure my face turned a thousand different shades of red that day. He mumbled an apology and got out of there super-fast. I just locked myself in the bathroom, hyperventilating. What else could I possibly do? I texted my best friend to tell her what had just happened. And she just laughed!!!

I followed in her footsteps and did just that! I laughed it off too. Needless to say, nobody  — not me, not him, not her — has spoken of this horrific occurrence since then. In conclusion, girls, please! Please lock the bathroom door always!

Just your regular teenager trying to turn her passion for writing into a career.
