@thecoffeestain I live in a smallish town (half an hour from a state university and a very expensive tourist area) and I had to turn in $85 for the credit check (mine/my mother's), proof of employment (my financial aid/my mother's most recent paycheck), and copies of my/my mother's ID. I wouldn't have been able to get my nearly $1300/month one bedroom if it hadn't been for having my mother as a cosigner. Basically, apartments are the worst, moms are the best.
oh, so glad i read this right before i'm going to tour an apartment building that has 1 star on apartmentratings. so glad. :/
@pawnknee Holy. Shit.
@muggles You beautiful tropical fish.
@stuffisthings Yes, thank you!
@Sarah Rain@facebook Seriously. Kill yourself if you so wish, but give your pets to a no-kill shelter first. Jesus.
@the electric mayhem Oh dear. This bodes ill for my plan to eventually move to the PNW (from Central Ca). I can make great Mexican food at home, but sometimes a woman just needs to pick up a burrito on her way to the library, you know?
@selenana Aha, I couldn't read your tone either. I retract my snark.
@selenana That's not what the article says at all, actually.
@Megano! Alternately, just let your dog poop on the sidewalk, gather it into a bag, and fling it over the walls of the garden to land explosively where it may? Add live scorpions to create a scorpion bomb for even more exciting results!
