Man posts frustrated Craigslist ad to escape opinionated housemate

High ceilings, exposed brick, and a roommate that won’t stop talking about Syria.

EVERYONE HAS AN opinion on Syria, but some are so strong they just can’t stop going on about it.

The peeved man posted this ad to Craigslist with an aim to move out of his New York apartment with immediate effect, all due to his room-mate’s constant chatter about Syria.

If anyone is interested, I’m renting out my bedroom in Williamsburg, Brooklyn immediately. I apologize for the short notice. The apartment features a kitchenette, a large (by New York standards, ha ha) bathroom, and a roommate that’s going to have some opinions on Syria.

The Brooklyn resident goes on to berate his room-mate ‘Mike’ for constantly annoying him with his opinions on the Syrian conflict.

I’d like to return to my apartment, but I know that as soon as I do, I’ll be confronted by a roommate with opinions on the Syrian conflict and a determination to share them with me.

Besides great utilities, high ceilings and a great location, you’ll have great conversation that never stilts.

It never ends with Syria. It just keeps going until he’s shared every opinion he has and then he just circles back and repeats.

The poor guy hasn’t been able to bring himself to return to the apartment, it’s gotten that bad.

As for me, I haven’t been home in a week. I’ve been staying late at work, and then grounding myself at a bar until last call. Then I wander the streets until dawn breaks. Cold, afraid, and lonely; content only in knowing that I don’t have to talk to my roommate about Syria. The room is available immediately as I will never return.

The advertiser is also looking for a new place, he doesn’t have many demands, only that there is

no roommate with opinions on Syria.

That’s fair.


Turns out, the ‘fed up dude’ is comedian Andy Bankin. Put your $800 back in your pocket.
