I got a slight chuckle out of this(9 posts)
I'm not laughing at the person who wrote this, but rather along with him...and for his sake, I truely do hope that he didn't "bomb" his living quarters.
holy crap that is the coolest thing EVER. Thanks so much for sharing that.
Pretty sure this was a woman in Chicago from a few years back. A lot of people assumed it was written by a guy, but I'm almost positive it was a girl. It's been featured on the Best of Craig's List.
I think people automatically assume a male voice, when there is no other indicator of gender when things are written on the internet. Screen names, etc. Unlike there is a clear indication of femaleness, I think most people assume male.
My husband laughed hysterically when i read it to him. Best of craigslist is where I found it while searching for "my bedbugs" children's show.
Man, woman, or god...That was a boost of pure positive battling attitude!
that was written by our very own JessicainChicago (or something like that).
Nobugs gave her a special designation - she is not a "Newbite" or a "Junior Member" .
No indeed. That priceless discourse earned her the special designation of "Craiglist Ranter".
you will see her when she posts again - she has not been around for a while
I think many of us - if not most of us - can relate to the feelings she writes of but very few of us could write like her and express it so well
Yes, it is Jessinchicago and funny.
But there is another open letter, too, that takes a much more tender and regretful tone to the little beasts. After all, you are so close to them during one of the most stressful times of your life. I can't find it! I think it was linked here.
That was good. It really lets the emotion out and I bet she felt better after writing it. Funny stuff!!
