Haikus Found in Craigslist Rooms & Shares

Jun 05 at 1pm

Maybe I'm picky, or maybe I don't want to live in a walk-in-closet off of a husband and wife's master bedroom for $1200 a month ($1100 if I'm willing to do some house work). Either way, I haven't found a suitable place to live here in San Francisco. What I have found is an endless supply of poets-who-don't-even-know-its in the Craigslist Rooms & Shares section. 

So since I happen to have a lot of copy/paste experience, can count on my fingers, and am comfortable with social media platforms and multitasking, I was able to create these Rooms & Shares Haiku tweets, straight from the listings themselves.

Even if I never find an apartment, I've learned a lot from this experience, like that "happy house hunting!" has five syllables. Follow @roomsandshares for more.
