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.
