Today, after being nearly homeless and couch-hopping for the last few months, I finally signed a 1-year lease. When I got home, I was surprised to see a picture of my new complex on the front page of the newspaper. It turns out that they are fighting a serious bedbug infestation. FML

...Don't let the bed bugs bite

Comments

Welcome home! Talk about a house warming gift!

Not to worry OP. I've got a couch. And a bed. Make yourself at home...

I subconsciously finished that phrase and chuckled delightedly to myself at the irony.

I laughed when I saw #3s comment was the rest of the phrase.

...Don't let the bed bugs bite

and if they bite, squeeze them tight, so they won't come back another night!

Or. 'And if they do, take a shoe and beat them 'till they're black and blue!'

There are 2 kinds of people...

and I hate both of them

Well now you know why it was a bargain. If it's too good to be true, it's usually not true.

At least you should be able to get out of the lease. Non-disclosure of such a problem is a serious breach of contract by the landlords.

This is horrible man, but this could be swung into profit with a little number called the couch hop. Just hold your head up it'll get better.

And no one one told you about this before you signed the two year lease? Damn, the world is a tough place.....

it was a 1-year lease.

At least you have a roof over your head. That is, if you don't mind sharing your apartment.

I'm so surprised that a complex that caters to hobos and transients would end up infested with bugs.

Do you think you could possibly be any more of a condescending douchebag?

#14, no, I think I nailed the "snooty douchebag" attitude just about perfectly.

Perdix it caters to almost homeless people.

Oh my, you told the truth! How DARE you!

Fact: Hospitals are the most common facility to find those buggers.... And we know how much time the homeless spend at hospitals... Along with schools, public transit and hotels. It's actually way more unlikely for homeless to have them seeing as they mostly avoid those places...besides buses. Even the cleanest people get them. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

Not sure where you find your "facts", but hostels and low budget inns are in fact the most commonly infested. Hospital cleaning routines most often kill any bedbugs brought in on patients and staff before they breed.

Anybody, even the cleanest person can get them, they could be on a bus seat or something like that, and then attach to your clothing and end up at your house where it lays eggs and burrows into your couch or bed

#34. Read the news paper. Hospitals are having MAJOR issues with bed bugs. You're welcome for the free education. Glad to learn you something your obviously having trouble learning yourself. Hostels. LOL. Thanks for laugh.

Perdix, hobos prefer to be called vagabonds. Don't be so rude.

40, I strongly believe that in order for you to insinuate that someone's unintelligent, there is a need to display some sense of brain activity. From your comment, I highly doubt that much is working up north. Notwithstanding your spelling/grammar, your logic is highly flawed. Your supposed newspaper articles only claimed that hospitals were having make problems with bedbugs. How you linked major problems to number one infestation site bemuse me completely. Moreover, I'm sure we all know that newspapers are th most reliable and unbiased sources of information known to mankind. Just remember, before you go on a major bitch out at someone, denying them of the basic respect they deserve, remember there are others who too have the capacity to verbally abuse you.

I see this as an opportunity to get on your feet, and every morning when you wake up you will always be itching to get going and be productive.
