craigslist: An Open Letter to my Bedbugs

This is one of the funniest and truest personal stories I’ve read about bedbugs. It was posted on craigslist by a Chicago bed bug sufferer in August 2006, and is now a “best of.” In case you haven’t yet done so, you should read it. I’d quote it, but you really do need to read the whole thing for full effect.

I have to add that bombing (as in bug bombing) is not, from what I understand, a recommended treatment method. Bombs can disperse the bedbugs to other units. And this means they can come back. But perhaps the author was using the term in a more poetic sense.

Small bedbuggy world, I guess.

What a hoot (and a well-written one, at that). It could have been my story. It’s all our story. The details are so painful. That only adds to the dark humor.
