I was going to save a pic from this series for the Friday Pix, but I can't pick just one. Besides, you gotta get the full effect.

Best i can figure is that the post is by someone who runs or manages an apartment complex. A resident had an outstanding balance for over a month, but they can't get in touch with her (20% of their residents are still away due to the hurricane fallout, which narrows down the regional area they're in, I suppose), so they finally entered the place...

Safe for work, but maybe not safe for your sensibilities.. *twitch*

I wonder if they'll get their deposit back. ;)

Hell, I wonder if they'll get the apartment back at all. That almost looked bad enough to just raze it to the ground.

When I was in high school, my best friend lived like that in the basement. His parents just let the trash build up. The trash was higher than his bed! His parents offered to pay my girlfriend and I to clean the downstairs, when we got to the floor (this is high school, remember) we found homework and bagged lunches, with food, from 3rd grade.

Dude, my place in Jersey was fucked up for a long while - I mean it was fuckin bad. But this takes the cake.

Wow, and I feel bad about my housekeeping. My place is absolutely sterile and orderly compared to that.

Ew. Ew. Oh, goodness gracious. Ew. Ew. Ew.

That is the nastiest thing that I've ever seen in my life.

That is, far and away, the worst thing I have seen in a long time. I vomited a little bit in my mouth just looking at the photos.

On the upside, at least there was enough room to move the mouse next to the keyboard.

We had a woman who lived in my apartment building in Baltimore. Apparently she went off her meds, and started walking around naked in the lobby, peeing and pooping in corners. Not sure which medical profession took her away, but when the property manager opened up her apartment....

Literally, shit EVERYWHERE. They had to being someone in from the outside to clean the place, as none of the employees would touch it.

So many thoughts show up in my mind as I look at these pictures...

"This person should win an award."
"I feel like my place is spotless clean."
"I've seen some apartments/houses like that, but not to THAT degree."
"I love how the pillow seems to be the only clean thing in the entire house."
"They're quite brave to even walk through that to take the pictures."
"I wonder how many other "gamer" houses/apartments look like this."

Part of me keeps wanting to think they thought the hurricane was going to wipe the place away so they just threw a huge party and then skipped town.. but a lot of that mess looks like it was lived-in. I just don't even know how you can do that. My mom and I have a standing rule: We could live in a cardboard box, but it would be a clean cardboard box. There's just no reason to live in filth like that. I don't understand the mind that can do that.

Hey Arch, remember the small house we rented out last year? I can't say exactly because Methuss wouldn't let me in until it was gutted, but he did say it was almost as bad as that.

Wow. My place is cluttered all to heck--I started going throw-out-and-donate apeshit when I realized I had pathways--but none of the clutter is food or nastiness, just stuff. Things like this post are just awful.

I'm sure you remember that bit I posted a while back involving the bathtub full of feces.

That's pretty damned disgusting. I don't understand how people can live like that.
