Hypothetically: You're a sophomore in college. The school year has just started, and you and your room mate, who is a stranger to you, have just arrived at your dorm room.

How disgruntled are you to find that your room mate's parent of the same sex will be spending the first night there? Really super annoyed? A little bit bothered? Indifferent?




I would not like to start off on the wrong foot with my room mate, but my mom thinks she will be spending the night in my room before she goes home. I'm not really sure if my room mate will even be there yet. And my mom does not really want to sleep in the car or in the apartments of any of my actual friends. It's unlikely we will be able to get a nearby hotel. So I'm not really sure what alternative to propose to her.  I don't think I would like it much if my room mate's mom spent the night but I don't actually know if I would mind at all. And I can't ask the girl ahead of time because she hasn't been using Facebook and the school did not see fit to provide me with her phone number or address (though they gave her mine.) Anyway, what would you do? What should I do?



PS. The top half of Florida is engulfed in a Tropical Storm. How bad of an idea would it be to go driving through the top half of Florida?
