11 things every girl who's lived with a load of lads knows to be true

*burps loudly*

1. You’re never 100% sure where the toilet roll is

Because they pee standing up, they leave it wherever is convenient for them. Which is not always particularly convenient for you.

2. And the toilet seat is almost always up

You’ve learned to double check, but not before you almost fell in one night.

3. They can be messy and disorganised…

A microwave on top of a washing machine on top of a dryer? Who does that? Oh. Lads.

4. …But give them a big project and they will commit

Getting the garden ready for a summer BBQ, clearing out the cupboard under the stairs, unblocking the shower… They relish these challenges.

5. They have a monopoly on the telly

The downside to living with lads. They take over everything! #lads #xbox #gaming #livingwithlads #theguys #uni #unihouse Source: Instagram/thatsutherskid

It’s a cliché, but anyone who’s lived with boys knows it’s true.

6. And you’ll come away a significant amount of obscure sports* knowledge, learned through osmosis

*Or facts about whatever else they happen to be into, be it table tennis or death metal.

7. You’ll learn to recognise an impressive fart or burp

8. And maybe, eventually, you’ll join in the competition

They’ll all be very surprised, but you’ll sense they now have an even deeper respect for you.

9. You’ll realise at some point that you’re completely starved of female company

What did you do before you were here, nodding along to a detailed analysis of the smell of a fart?

10. Because there’s no one around to attend to female matters

Why the fuck has some smart cunt not invented a revolutionary tool used to put tan on one's own back? We're not all in relationships, don't have a boy to do my back. #TheStruggleIsReal #TheydMakeAMint #IdBuyOne #JusticeForSingles #Tanmyback #SortItOut Source: Instagram/4shadefairley

Like providing spare tampons or tanning your back.

11. But it will never, ever be boring

There is not only a nerf gun fight every night, but sometimes the drone gets involved. Now we have 4 nerf guns and 2 drones. #livingwithguys Source: Instagram/valthevoyager
