(WTNH) — A tweet from 17-year-old UCLA student Winnie Chen has gone viral after her future roommate e-mailed an intense list of demands before the start of the school year.

According to People Magazine, Chen, one of the three roommates in the dorm took to social media after an e-mail exchange with one of her prospective roommates Ashly.

Chen tweeted a screenshot of the e-mail sent from the potential roommate after she and her other roommate Guistinna Tun failed to respond to her past e-mails.

“Okay so I’m not sure why neither of you responded back to my emails, but I don’t really care just as long as you both know this and understand that I’m not gonna settle for anything less than what I’m gonna tell you that I’m gonna get once I arrive in the dorm. I’ll take the top bunk of the bunk bed that has a bottom and top bunk. I DO NOT want the single bunk where it has a desk underneath the top bunk so don’t try to leave me that. I’m also taking one of the white closets. There should be two white closets and I’m taking one of them. I don’t care for which one it is, just know I’m taking one of them.”

Chen also shared a response from the third roommate, Guistinna Tun explaining to Ashly that they did not purposely ignore her e-mail.

“1. You assuming off the bat that we are ignoring you. Please, don’t play the victim. It’s petty.

2. You making all of these demands. While it may not seem like it to you, it seems like it to us.

3. Your attitude. GIIRRRL, WE HAVEN’T EVEN MET YET. But at this rate, I don’t think I wanna even meet you anymore #SORRYBUTNOTTHATSORRY.

4. Your sense of entitlement…just because you gave up the BOTTOM BUNK. Please, there is more to live than the bottom bunk. And that doesn’t give you the excuse to automatically demand ‘THE TOP BUNK THAT HAS A BOTTOM AND TOP BUNK, ONE OF THE WHITE CLOSETS, AND A DESK THAT’S NEAR THE WINDOW.”

Chen has tried to request another roommate, but has yet to hear back from the university.

Good luck ladies.
