Ah, craigslist. We love perusing craigslist ads—so much insanity on display. Such as the following ads for roommates: answer these at your peril!
First off we have an ad for a "PEACE FULL ARTIST HOME." in Quogue. Apparently that translates to "every room has a Buddha picture." Let's Zen out with this one before proceeding!
Relaxed yet? OK, let's go. Dear reader, are you CONSERVATIVE? A ">>>Non-Smoker,>>>> NO>>PETS. . .. . . Working professional . . ..Responsible.. considerate Roommate. . . cleanliness , fair share of keeping house clean. . ." Are you looking to share with "mature adults ..Clean!!! And keep house....clean!! And expect the same out of anyone else. We are both stable minded. . . very quiet and keep to ourselves. . .. Non-smoker or drinkers...no medication of any kind would like a.. compatible... roommate. This is a working professional house not a party House of any kind. We are very conservative."?
Are you as frightened as we are? Not yet? How about this next ad, then?
