If the majority of your guests is gluten free/vegetarian/dairy free, etc., that's one thing. You should understand that when you invite them and cook accordingly. But if only 1 or 2 guests out of the 10 or more that are coming have specific dietary requirements (NOT allergies) then the everyone else shouldn't be held to the whim of this one person. I find it ridiculous that if 1 person is eating fat free/gluten free/vegetarian/etc. that they should hold everyone else hostage by forcing them (and the host/ess by cooking the food) to eat as they do. The host/ess should make 1 dish that the person can eat, invite other people to bring similar dishes if they like, and then have that specific guest bring 1 dish of their own so they have something else to eat, but to plan a whole menu around them? No.

The floors. We have a rental hardwood floors that are rarely swept or mopped and are poorly maintained from previous tenants. I just wear flipflops or slippers around the house because with my roommate's 2 dogs, I figure it's a battle I just can't win.

Bad neighbors, oy. When I was a senior in college, a couple moved in upstairs from my mom and I. I lived on campus three hours away so I wasn't there when they moved in. My mom would talk to me on the phone about them but she sort of down played it so when I went home for winter break, I got to hear how bad it really was. I'm pretty sure that the second bedroom was their music room because that's where it was loudest. Every single Wednesday they would come home around 11pm and break out the guitar and bongos. Yes. Bongos. And then they'd sing until about 2-3am. Then they'd do this again on Friday and Saturday nights.

My mom and I did moved sight unseen. We were moving from Southern CA to Chicago, IL and couldn't afford to fly out there to go apartment hunting. We had to rely on my aunt who lived in the area. The location was good (across a busy street from the school I would be going to) but the apartment was horrible.
