An anonymous reader tipped us off to an apartment ad on Craigslist. The ad, which has now been taken down, is reproduced on Curbed.com, and offered a NYC loft share for $750. Wow! But read on:
We are 2 guys and 2 girls; all young professional types. I’m an artist going back to get my Masters, we have an Architect, an Engineer and a Business professional. We are all laid back and would love someone who can fit in to the group.
But as Curbed noted, there was a huge catch:
Very Important note: you must tolerate bugs! We have bugs now and then since we live in an old old converted warehouse with tons of places for them to come from. Although they are not common, they do come in and bite us 🙁 The other bad thing is that we only have One bathroom so we must plan around that detail. Other than those two cons, its an awesome place!
How many young professionals does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Seriously, folks. Yes, I am assuming the biting bugs are bed bugs. Bed bugs are not a small annoyance to be tolerated. Occasional bed bug bites lead to a full-blown infestation quicker than you can finish that Master’s in art.
(Note: reading the Curbed comments confirms the advertisers meant “bed” bugs.)
