Poring.

I mean, I HOPE she wasn't actually pouring anything over them.

Hey, that list doesn't include anything about leaving Golgothan turds clogging the toilet or blasting out eggy, eye-searing farts...

Every time he walks by my room he lets one rip. He calls it a crop dusting. :(

For God's sake, the house even has a fucking website

Jeez, word of this place has been going around. I found out about this through another forum. Here's a snippet from somebody's rant about it:

Well, the house does have its own damn website. If they didn't want all this publicity, maybe they shouldn't be running a PR hype machine for an overblown house rental.

Hell, they might actually find themselves in the crosshairs of some eager lawyer given that a couple of those, most notably the "no prescription drug users" line, are potentially illegal. Sure, they've been careful to weasel it as "This is what past successful roommates didn't do", so it's clear they're trying to skirt a suit (haha, skirt a suit), but I don't think that's something that would really hold up if anyone actually wanted to sue them for discrimination.

It kind of makes me feel better to know they'd judge me just for being born severely asthmatic.

My favorite part is the ability to be professional enough to apply for a spot in a dorm.

I had a very brief IRL conversation with someone yesterday who stated that "McDonald's food must be very good for you, because of all the stringent health and safety regulations the staff is subject to when making it."

Spotted yesterday on the streets of Toronto: A scowling man clomping angrily down the street, wearing large rubber boots and a black t-shirt with simple white font that read "I hate rubber boots".

Oh shi, the Ecoplan motherfuckers called again just like nothing ever happened. I gave all the "correct" responses and told the lady my heating costs were 3k a year, which apparently qualifies me for whatever their scam is gonna turn out to be. The next step is an appointment for a phone call with a "supervisor" Friday evening.

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what my endgame is, but at the very least I'll waste the time of a couple shitlords and maybe I'll get another good primal scream in, so that's a win right there.

Welp, douchebro called tonight instead, to talk about sending in a "technician" tomorrow. I must have started asking too many questions about why some guy would show up at my house, because he hung up mid-sentence. This frustrates my wish to vaporize his eardrums, but I did have two higher priorities, namely trying to figure out what the deal is, and not flirting too close with having some flavor of criminal knock on my door expecting an easy mark. Safety over curiosity, in the end, of course.

I bet they'll call again though, and I'll probably just go BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD right away. I don't have much more to gain here, as little as I had before. I'll get in touch with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center tomorrow and see if they want to hear the story, in case that helps anyone, and then wash my hands of the whole thing.
