Chicago Apartment Hunting Bingo

For those of you looking for apartments this year, I figured a little bit of humor could help to lighten the task.

This is your apartment hunting Bingo card. Get five squares in a row, and you win! (I don't know what you win. A more enjoyable apartment search than people who aren't playing Bingo, I guess?)

If you don't like your card, hit refresh to get another one.

If you have an apartment-hunting cliche you'd like me to add, leave it in the comments.

Oh, and I should mention: many of these are bad things that occur during showings. Please don't deliberately cause them to happen just to complete your Bingo card. Thanks.

Agent says unit is haunted Torn window screen Too messy to walk Unit smells of pot smoke Sleeping tenant
Agent shows where to put kitchen table Bedroom has French doors Misspelled circuit breaker labels Messy cable installation job Beeping smoke detector
Immaculately decorated apartment Room off limits during showing Water Included!

Showing is a mob scene Weird trivia about building history

Ugly paint job Tiny exercise room Agent > 15 min late "Are you familiar with the area?" Apartment listed by current tenant
