Rent has gone past ridiculous, beyond outrageous, and right into the realm of comical. Single wide trailer--$900/mo. When you factor in last month's rent, security deposit, application fees, background check, etc., etc., you get $3000 to move in. For a G.D. singlewide. Saw a "tiny home" rental for $700/mo. and pounced on it. Turned out to be a treehouse in someone's backyard. At just under 70 square feet, and $1400 to move in, I ended up passing on that little gem. The blue hairs are to blame. I am leaving. They will all be dead soon, anyways. Then I will come back. That is all.
