New roommate. Doesn't really cook, and suddenly my freezer (which I also use for some things even though I personally prefer non-frozen/fresh food) is literally jam packed with frozen stuff. Which is fine, I'm not here to judge anyone, but a secondary effect of this is that food is EVERYWHERE in the freezer like with no space at all between items including on top of the ice created by the ice maker in my freezer. I find this unsanitary. I use that ice in drinks and for other things. I asked my new roommate about it and told him that have to throw away the ice and that the freezer can't look like this again - he agreed and apologized but he also said that "in some freezers, that's not meant for use in food/drinks, it's there for keeping food cold" (or something along those lines). He basically had TV dinners shoved on top of the ice tray.
Is that...at thing? Am I the one that finds that crazy? I have never heard that before, people shoving food into or on top of the tray that collects the ice from the ice maker and that people don't use the ice in food/drinks?
This was actually the exact issue that triggered the end of my relationship with the crazy previous roommate of ~2 years ago. Of course, it wasn't that one thing, it was a long string of things and that was the straw that broke the camel's back. The primary issue with my old roommate was his attempt to gaslight me. I come out of my room one day to get ice for a drink and I find a mini wine bottle shoved into the middle of the ice in the ice tray. And my roommate was not a clean person, with all the implications that carried with me finding his wine bottle in the ice tray. He accused me of "staging" him doing that, of me planting the wine bottle in the middle of the ice tray, which was really the incendiary thing that led to our relationship permanently dissolving overnight.
Anyway, someone please help me understand this trend because it seems bonkers to me.
