I have this roommate who plays video game all day, every day, while I spend the majority of my free time reading and studying. He spent five years of his life after high school smoking weed and playing video games, while I went to college and got a degree.
On a particular Saturday morning, I was sleeping while he was playing video games. When I woke up, he called me "the laziest person he has ever met".
Why would he say such a thing?

The more important question is, why would you let something this silly bother you?

Another question: why are you living with someone like that? Do you have sort of romantic relationship with him?

We were roommates in the military. I didn't really have a say in the living arrangement.
Now may I get my answer?

You were or are in the military? The military lets you smoke weed all day? Is this someone who is or was your roommate?

A friend once told me that it's easier to see our faults in others than in ourselves. He was probably subconsciously talking about himself.

Buy him a mirror?

He graduated from high school five years prior to joining the military, and he smoked weed during that five year period.
