Rental of the week: somewhere on College Street

This place is so bad that whoever uploaded the photos thought they could Microsoft Paint over the worst bits, like a kid putting Wite-Out over a question on a test they don’t know how to answer. 

It didn’t work then and it sure doesn’t work now! You can’t just Wite-Out the stuff that's not desirable.

I don’t know what’s more bleak, the duct-tape exposed wire, the water damaged floor, the half-painted walls, the pathetic window coverings or the exposed pipes? 

Oh wait, no. The bleakest part of this place is definitely the fact that it costs $1,450 a month. 

Yeah, $1,450 a month and there’s already mould growing on the floor.

Wouldn’t it be fun waking up once a month to a swimming pool? 

I imagine it would look like the room that woman who lived with a dolphin lived in, minus the dolphin… Man, that was such a weird experiment. Seriously, just Google it.

Move On If
