The Apartment Was Filled With Thousands of Roaches
The same renter from the last story found herself in another slumlord situation when she was looking for a place for her and her boyfriend. They found a first floor one bedroom. Surprise! They found roaches. They called the landlord about the infestation. “Oh yeah haha, this is a city so there are roaches,” he said cheerfully. She told him off, because this was not a roach or two, but thousands. Everywhere. Six days later, they broke the lease. They did not clean up a single roach after we killed them. Hundreds of roach bodies on the floors. The husband took a look-see, shrugged, and said “It’s not that bad.” In both situations, the landlords had children. She asked both sets of landlords, “how would you feel about your daughter living in these conditions?” to which they could not answer.
