    Nightmare housing for Shreveport psych

    Advertisements



    ok so there this ad on craigslist - i know i know you kinda expect something to be crazy btu thiss takes the cake.

    alright i looked at this apt but ended up going with the other contact i made through craigslist and thank god.

    one the first day was hearing this horror story about a guy that rented a room from a craigslist ad. the house owner well call "Chris R" had a girlfriend that was relapsing. she knocked on the med school students door at all hours of the night trying to get him to do shots with her. then one day he came back and found that the girl put the cat in his room and that it pooped on his bed.

    the last part that had the guy leave a week and a half into a 500 dollar a month stay (with no refund consequently making me think this was a planned scam) was that he came home and about to shower when there was human poop in the tub. the story was that the gf got wasted passed out and pooh pooh herself.

    in defense to "chris R" he did mention that he was in recovery in his and was clean for awhile so there couldn't be any drugs or alcohol around. however he never mentioned the girlfriend at all.

    if you deal with a restaurant cook 8 blocks from brentwood that owns chinchillas you should be warned to stay away.


    on a lighter note= the one that i chose to stay with seems really cool and has a super nice place in quiet neighborhood

    Thanks for the warning wildroc, where did you stay? I'm starting a psych rotation there at the end of July. I'll be commuting without a car. Any tips on how to find housing?

    its tough without a car. i had a friends stay at the extended stay and cabed it every day... 10 bucks one way... its possible to stay on campus which is like 20 min away and find a fellow student to car pool with. some people did that but they had to be with the same doc bc the hours were all different.

    Thanks for the post, wildroc18. I start psych there in Nov and I'll be sure to keep this thread in mind. How was the rotation itself? Any tips? Jes, when you're done with the rotation, your feedback would be great, too! Thanks guys!!
