Ridiculous landlord / house share rules that went viral

This week a woman from London went viral with her list of 12 rules in search for her new flatmate.
  1. Be out of the flat on weekdays during working hours so I can work from home.
  2. Be quiet and considerate. Use door handles rather than slamming.
  3. Don’t use the phone or Skype a lot throughout the day.
  4. We’re not a sociable house but you should have good manners and speak to your housemates.
  5. Be someone who has friends and don’t spend to much time at home watching tv on your laptop.
  6. Follow the cleaning rota this is not a student dorm.
  7. Don’t move in if you go to the toilet a lot or take long showers.
  8. No cooking in the flat between 8.30 am and 11 pm. I don’t like people spending a lot of time cooking in general.
  9. Everyone is expected to clean up after themselves in the kitchen and the bathroom.
  10. I don’t want to see your friends constantly hanging around the flat.
  11. Boyfriends and girlfriends are ok as long as they’re not sleeping over more than 3-4 times a week.
  12. I don’t want to see people under the influence of drugs and alcohol. reasonable amounts are fine.
