Housemate with TB

The guy doesn’t take the drugs that reduce the risk of infecting other people, and doesn’t cover his mouth when he coughs in communal areas.

he is moving out in the next few months.

How would you deal with a person like this in the interim


I’d wear this…

…at night.

slit his fucking throat

I agree with hungry… Actually, I would move out, for good. Quarantine the house.

Twice.

Why the hell would you let him live with you?

Why would he not take care of himself??

Seriously. What the FUCK are you doing living with someone with tuberculosis of all things? Do you guys rent out a space under the local bridge or something?

Do you live in an 1800’s saloon???

I’d get the fuck out of there in a hurry.

Stop sleeping with her,

This isn’t the sort of thing you just sit around and wait out. Stay at a buddy’s until he gets the fuck out. If he takes to long, YOU gtfo. Whatever you have to do to not get infected.

Fuck him in the asshole!

Just out of curiosity, is it possible in the US to call cops or whatever on such highly contagious people, so that they get locked up and treated until they can’t infect other people anymore? In Germany there is probably a rule, that requires you to get treated if necessary.

To the Op: Kill it with fire! But you might be already infected… I would check it, after you’re out of that mess.
