This treasure appeared on Craig's List:

I have a huge bathroom.

I am a female in my mid 60's and I am looking for a room mate. Times are tight and I need some extra money.
I am willing to rent out my bathroom in my 1 bedroom east village home.

My bathroom is large. You can easily put a twin air mattress in there. I only ask that when I need to use the bathroom, you or your air mattress are not in it.

I do ask that when you are in the apartment, you confine yourself to the bathroom. I do not feel comfortable with a stranger walking around my living room. This might change as I get to know you better.

You may have guest over as long as they are confined to the bathroom as well. This might seem a bit odd but please remember the rent is $400 and the bathroom is large.

* cats are OK - purrr
* it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

I just read this in craigslist"best of". My guess is that it was written with the goal of making it to the 'Best of' catagory. Have you read the one about the dog with the ugly tits?

Are hot plates allowed in the loo?

Ian Lidster said...

So, if she's caught short in the middle of the night does the tenant have to leave?

furiousBall said...

holy moly... that is classic. i loved the purr after the bit about cats being ok. because that totally validates it

franki said...

more than anything, that purr after the cat thing convinces me this lady is looking for her next victim.

I knew you'd love it.




My daughter sent it to me, but I checked out the Best Of after reading your comment. They're all pretty funny.


As long as they're removed when the lady of the manse wants to pee.


That seems to be the idea.


Yes, just when you think it can't get any stupider...


I'm sure you're right.

I'm leaving for L.A. right now and don't have a laptop so I'll check back in with y'all over the weekend.

Is that sad? I find it sad. Although i see that some folks think it's not for real, which might be true.

I'd like to know if it's tenanted yet!

Something tells me that person is not going to get too many offers -- and might want to be very careful about anyone who does apply.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I also wondered if it was true. Sadly, it probably is, although I cannot imagine anyone agreeing to this arrangement.


All the crazies show up there, sooner or later.


Now that is too awful to contemplate.


You raise an excellent point. Anyone who would accept such terms is probably an ax murderer or a pervert.

Warty Mammal said...

As bizarre, funny and sad as this, I'm afraid that someone will go for this deal.

ahahahahahahaha. When I went to Berkeley, I saw things like this and worse. Hell, I lived in this cave - when it rained there was a river though my apartment.... $200/mo!

michelle of bleeding espresso said...

Wow. Just. Wow.

In any event, happy holidays to you and yours :)

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I'm sure you're right. Heaven help us.


Oh, so you had waterfront property... and at such a fair price.


Love your picture, Signora.

Happy holidays to you and all of Calabria as well.
