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.

Questionable posters on walls Apartment doesn't match the ad "Non-refundable deposit" Actual address mentioned in ad Nicer nickname for bad area
Apartment next to train Tiny exercise room Bad parallel parking job Broken lock box Unit smells of pot smoke
Lobby doors that hit each other Agent says unit is haunted Water Included!

Empty except for cleaning supplies Agent > 15 min late
Apartment listed by Realtor Agent doesn't show up Ad says "This one won't last!" Tenant's pet escapes Apartment full of packing boxes
Padded elevator Inaccurate kitchen clock Must remove shoes to view "Are you familiar with the area?" Ad with no photos

If you enjoy this, please share it. Let me know if you get Bingo!
