The last few days I have been frantically flat/house hunting around London. Might I add it is not a pleasant experience.
I’ve been sifting through Gumtree, and in the Loot newspaper, and there’s loads of rentals out there, but only 1 in 20 is ever worth visiting. Obviously, you only find that out after spending a couple quid on a tube ticket, and an hour’s worth of time to get there.
The classifieds don’t help much either. They are advertised as follows:
“Beautiful, huge double bedroom, with TV, in a mod and clean flat, perfectly situated, a stone’s throw from the tube station“
Which actually means:
“Crusty flat, above a dodgy kebab/pizza shop on noisy Wandsworth High street. A 10 minute walk from the tube station.
I’m learning pretty quickly how to decipher these adverts.
To cheer me up a little, I snapped this picture. At least London trains and buses come on time. Well most of the time. See below for proof:
Actual arrival time: 10:41:00
