Like I'm sorry, but unless there's a fire or you're about to burn something, there is no reason to disturb everyone with your stomping feet.

2. Burn food

3. Leave hair in the shower stall

It'll be super embarrassing!

5. Sing songs while blasting music

9. Invite 5-10 people into the room almost every single day

18. Leave laundry in the washer/dryer longer than necessary

19. Barge into people's rooms to either ask for something, rant about their problems, or be nosy

20. Smoke weed inside the residence hall
