Even around Halloween, I don't wish upon my worst enemy the hell of looking for a place to live around San Francisco. By the way, please explain how this city has an equal number of dogs as children, when landlords of overpriced properties seem to shun either creature. Good luck finding a one bedroom outside the Tenderloin for $1400, which is more than half the monthly paycheck for anyone lucky enough to have a middle-class salary here.
You might be stuck finding a place to share. This is a great way to boost your
self esteem sense of humor. Many, many potential roommates specify persnickety dietary regimes you must respect to share a kitchen, from run of the mill veganism to the primal diet. If you're going to shack up with strangers, you may have to put up with a perplexing array of rules, such as only cooking fish in the iron pot on third Thursdays, or agreeing to give up the living room on Sundays so housemates can practice various rebirthing sessions or orgasmic breathing exercises from the friendly cult down the street. The challenges persist even if you move across the Bay. This is probably the most interesting Craigslist post I've seen yet:

Like it's not bad enough that you already have to sign a blood-ink contract bequeathing your firstborn daughter to the property deities to get a room. Didn't anybody watch "Pursuit of Happyness" or read this article?
