“The Worst Room” is a hilarious and depressing Tumblr blog focusing on the sad state of rentals in New York and beyond. This listing, via Dallas Craigslist, is especially sad.

I stumbled across this sad, sad Tumblr blog not too long ago and completely forgot about it. It’s the blog of a New Yorker who was going through the depressing task of finding a suitable rental in the city that wasn’t a dungeon, a closet, or a tent in the backyard of a derelict Brooklyn Brownstone (they’ve seen it all!). It’s somewhat in the vein of Terrible Real Estate Agent Photos, which we love.

And then someone sent me a Facebook message pointing me to a post about a Dallas room for rent, offered by a “single Hispanic man” who prefers a female. While this is a one-bedroom apartment, don’t worry, you won’t be sharing rooms. He’s offering up his unfurnished living room because, hey, he’s not using it right now. If you have $300, this empty living room has some things going for it, including a window and access to the outdoors.

Sounds perfect and not sketchy at all!
