$1150/800ft – ONE CORPORATE GRINDER SEEKS INANIMATE BLOW UP DOLL THAT DISPENSES RENT AND DOESN’T MIND THE C TRAIN (Trendy Neighborhood)
Looking for a roommate to share my three room apartment. Yes, that’s right: bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. THREE ROOMS. How else did you think I could afford this place?
I know a lot of people who complain about having to tip their server at a restaurant. I even know people who stiff waiters and baristas on the regs, because they’re broke or just cheap.

Sadly it seems people still don’t understand the basic requirements to living with others in a small space (unless you live in some squatter-hippie-commune apartment thing. That’s like the wild west as far as I’m concerned so anything goes there). But fret not, people of the city. To set the record straight I’ve
