2. The Food Thief

If one of your roommates keeps "accidentally" eating your food — even though your initials are clearly written in very visible, bold Sharpie — call the refrigerator police. You are living with the Food Thief. Okay, don't literally call the police, but do call your roommate out in a mature, calm manner. At first, go about it in a way that makes it seem like you are assuming it was an accident, but don't be overly accusing. However, if this behavior continues, you'll need to be stern. Nobody comes between humans and their food — especially other humans.
