    geez would it kill you to move to the urban slums or the boondocks?

    a decent apt i think goes for 650-900 around here.

    my parents were lucky when they bought the pad.
    they only pay 600$ a month and are already almost paid off. 2 more years.

    Pistol the moocher got's a place for a while now.

    I pay $700 for half of a 3bdrm appt in the downtown of my city.
    There's always ways to work out cost sharing.

    If you're paying 1500 a month for just yourself,
    then that's about having a 'status adress' and not a home.

    Rent in San Francisco is even worse.

    Rent out here was really expensive.
    Until all the dot com companies flopped.
    Rent is getting cheaper, but the energy
    crisis is helping keep it a bit high. Some people
    still charge a grip, thinking its all good,
    but it aint. Work is hard to find, some people
    are either scraping to get by, or moving
    to the boonies, where rent is super low.
    Then they do the killer commuting thing.
    Im buying a crib in the ghetto, and my payment is decent.
    Its a bit high, considering my surroundings,
    but boarders and me having a good job helps.
    I rent out rooms, and that helps me with my payments.
    So its not that all people are paying that much rent
    by themselves. Most people share living spaces
    to make it cheaper. I would move, but shit,
    Cali living got me stuck here, warm weather,
    fine ladies, bomb bud, the life man!
