Again, I don’t understand the YouTube algorithm, but this video came up in my recommended list.
For $800 per month, this guy lives in an apartment which is the size of my master bedroom walk in closet. Just my closet. My wife has her own closet. He also has to share a bathroom with four other apartments. Not like a dorm bathroom with multiple stalls, just a single small bathroom.
From that video, I got linked to this one.
Compared to the other guy’s 78 square foot apartment, 90 square feet is down right palatial. She leveled up from living in my bedroom closet to living in my master bathroom.
She even has her own bathroom compared to the other guy.
After watching the second video, I understand why the first guy is paying more for less. He’s stupid.
Any architect that didn’t design a loft sleeping space to take advantage of the one asset he has, high ceilings, is a pretty terrible architect. No wonder he lives in a hovel.
Their combined rent is more than my mortgage and living space is less than my master bedroom.
At least the woman seems happy. Every time that guy chuckled it sounded like a depressed cry for help as the reality that he is spending a third of his salary to live in half the square footage of a parking space and eat cold peanut butter out of the jar while waiting for one of his neighbors to get out of the bathroom so he can take a piss.
*A standard US parking space is 8.5×18 feet or 153 sq-ft.
“Yes I live in an apartment the size of a pantry that makes a spartan dorm room feel like Versailles, but it’s a pantry in Manhattan.”
This is not a lifestyle, this is a mental illness.
