My brother has just come into my room eating a pack of hula hoops, whilst I am trying to get to sleep.

Now he has just asked me to turn the tv up... is it me or is this going too far???

What's going on?

So at what point did you write the opening posting of the thread? Was that after you had turned up the TV? Laughing

Throw his hula hoops out the window, throw the TV out the window, and if all else fails, blockade the door when he goes to the toilet.

yea, this didn't work with my college roommate. it just doesn't work with some people! i'd think the best solution is to talk to him about it. just be like yo, wtf? uncool. and then try to work on some ground rules. Or, you can do it to him and then that way if he wakes up and yells at you you can be like 'hey you did it to me first now you know what it feels like!' and then pursue a conversation about rules and whatnot.

Worst comes to worst there are always the parentals if this is happening in their home (versus you and your brother perhaps being roommates elsewhere). If this is their house, well, you may not want to get them involved but you're kind of in a situation that is out of your hands and if talking to your brother doesn't work, you may not have a choice. Do it for your sanity! Trust me. You guys need to respect each other's space/sleep!

Mine neither as he was also the party guy in the block so attracted rowdy people to the room as well. I knew talking would be a waste so instead got into the habit of spending hours of the night outside, walking long distances or in Denny's drinking gallons of lemonade and studying or reading. Sort of the positive thing to do for me at the time. Was actually a good habit to adopt as from then on forwards in the odd situations that I hit accommodation snags, this is the method I use to work my way around it.

deanhills - did you actually try talking to him, or did you just assume it would be a waste of time?

It would have been a waste of time. He was actually a nice guy and I liked him as well. He was enjoying himself and so were the guys who visited him. Sometimes it was fun as well and I joined in. But in overall when I wanted some quiet time a pain. I could probably have tried talking to him, but I thought that would not make sense at all. It would have been the equivalent of asking an elephant to walk on his toes. Smile

At first I questioned the eating of hula hoops...luckily I read further before I commented wrong. BUT....what is with the "Prawn Cocktail" flavored ones?? Laughing

We had a topic some time ago that dealt with *very* oddly flavored topics...it was really quite amusing.
LittleBlackKitten
Not everyone is aware they're being rude, especially if there's no communication, and they themselves are not tired. Have you actually tried saying "Dude, I'm tired. I need to sleep." If they ignore you, then yeah, that's rude. If not, and you haven't said anything, then no; they're not mind readers.

I am not exactly sure, but I believe the Hula Hoop (shown here was manufactured by the Wham-O Toy company, and I'm pretty sure they must have patented the idea (if not the manufacture and sale) of the item...so exportation may be a problem.

Fixed. Wink
medesignz
does that mean we should perhaps close this topic now... or must we wait until we decide whether I should start a potato snack based export company?
menino
If you do start a potato based company.... dont employ your brother! Laughing
Parkour_Jarrod

Or you could just give him the plastic kind, those will be in his digestive tract for a while...

my bro could be the spokesperson... but in all honesty, Hula Hoops are in a world of their own.
