If you’ve ever lived in an apartment before, you’ll know that the level of quality is almost like a roulette wheel in terms of how dicey it can be. Some people get luckier than others and find an incredible place for a better value. Others have the misfortune of landing on a sketchy landlord, a sketchy apartment, or both. If quality wasn’t a bad factor, a roommate has the potential of absolutely ruining your first apartment stay. In New York City, all those factors are heightened, because the apartments tend to be small and overpriced, and as far as roommates go, well, there are some sketchy types around. Still, some people are willing to put up with that, in order to live in one of the best cities in the world. This game of chance has led to some very interesting first apartment stories. These people open up their first NYC apartment and prove to us once again that finding the right place is a lot about luck and chance.
A Case of Bad B.O.
It’s one thing if your roommate has a bad personality, but what if they have a bad B.O., like the person in this story? If it’s their personality, you know it’s something you can’t control, and just have to learn to live with. But if someone has a bad trait that can be controlled, such as bad B.O., and they choose not to do anything about it, it can be a big inconvenience for the whole apartment.
When your problem is so bad that a whole wind-tunnel needs to be made in order to curb it, that’s when you know you have a bad roommate. Wouldn’t it just be easier to get proper treatment and not use vinegar for your laundry? It seems like this guy wants to make his roommate’s lives are as difficult as possible.
