Bizarre Craigslist Ad Allegedly Seeks Hoarder Roommate


Craigslist is a great place to find lightly used appliances or an antique set of forks, but it can also be a hotbed of weirdos and “non-normies.”

One ad from a household of hoarders made it clear that “normies” aren’t welcome. An alleged group of San Francisco hoarders is looking to rent out a room.¬†Obsessive-compulsive neat freaks need not apply. People with a collection of National Geographic magazines from past 15 years will be put on the short list.

The Hoarders ONLY ad is pretty honest about the amenities: “There is no space in the refrigerator or cabinets so if you like to cook, this won’t work. The entire house is filled floor to ceiling with our things.”

Also, if you want to do your laundry, there’s a washer and dryer, but good luck trying to get to it. You’ll need to trek to the nearest laundromat to get your undergarments cleaned.

And, if you’ve been evicted from your former digs for hoarding, that’s cool. The other four roommates can relate.

Another thing: These roomies require not only first and last month’s rent, but they need solid proof that the applicant is indeed a hoarder.

“We need photos of your current hoard to prove you are legitimate,” says the ad.

Methinks this ad may be a bid to collect a bunch of hoarder photos for some strange photo collection. How fitting.
