I'll pass on the King's Landing pool thanks

Derek and I are apartment hunting and quite frankly it sucks.

We're not asking for much. It has to not be a shit hole, allows cats, has a dishwasher and is public transit accessible. Apparently realtors on Craigslist think we should pay them a full months rent as a fee for shit holes.

If you're too lazy to post pictures on Craigslist why would I even bother calling about the apartment and why would you ever deserve a fee? You don't.

Would it kill you to spell words properly? Can you read a rental contract because I'm concerned a 6 year old is posting ads.

One apartment we saw advertised a pool. Derek thought awesome! I thought this is too good to be true.

The pool was in the middle of a parking lot with giant spikes around the top. Am I swimming here or is this where Ned Stark's head goes? No thank you King's Landing pool.

The search continues and I may pull a Joffrey level fit soon.


  1. Yeah yikes about the King's landing pool.

    If one is advertising for a business such as rentals they should have proper spelling and grammar it is common fucking sense. I hear ya sister!

    1. It's just poor business and lazy.

  2. Ugh! I know that's the worst. Hope you find something soon!!!

    If anything, lose the dishwasher thing. I've been sans a dishwasher for over 10 years now and it's not that bad... if an apartment is perfect but it doesn't have a dishwasher don't make it a dealbreaker! GOOD LUCK!!

    1. That is one thing we will give up if needed. It would be really nice but it would be silly to turn down a place because of not having a dishwasher. I'm sure looking for a place to rent in NYC must be even more stressful than Boston.
