People suck sometimes!

I was living in SW Edmonton just off Ellerslie Rd & was due to move to the NW around the 5th of this month with my roommate. Nothing forced, we were just upgrading to a newer bigger place. Well, 3 days before the move he informed me that he had a new GF with 2 & could i please find somewhere else to move to?
After the shock settled i asked what was going to happen if i couldn't find a place to stay? He just looked at me blankly & said " i dunno what tell , i wish i did" He then told me i had until the 5th to find a place...meanwhile was the 2nd already. I put up a few ads looking for a place & explained my situation & my finances(i'm on a limited budget)
I found out sadly & shockingly that a lot of people do NOT return messages when you try enquire about their rental properties! I was mortified! I viewed 1 room which was well within my budget but it turned out be a storage room...the said they had roaches, bed-bugs & mice...i felt like i needed a tetanus shot just looking at the place! The pile of dirty dishes all over the counter & the over-flowing garbage just added the "ambience" along with the beautiful aroma of rotting stuff! Can't imagine why they had bug issues?
Next one contacted me wanted "work out" a rental agreement. I told him i wasn't particularly intrested in being his "sweet thang" or having to trade my ass for a place to rent. I told him that if i got down to freezing to death or whatever that i would keep his offer in mind lol!
Lots of unreturned calls, a few "oh the room isn't ready yet" but they were the ones replying to my ad? Several couldn't read thought i was renting out a room cheap, and finally a landlord took a deposit to secure the place but failed to follow through & now i'm fighting to get my back! Meanwhile i ran out of time & some near dear friends offered come get me & give me a safe place live! 's in Red Deer, Alberta but 's way better then being homeless & freezing!
Like does that another human being? Then on top of i spent 3 days mudding, sanding, painting & rewired the island in his kitchen & never got for the work i did! He said he let me stay in the empty apartment for free....that was my payment! I told him i was about to turn squatter but my friends came & got me in the meantime lol!
Moral of the story: don't put a lot of trust or faith in people to do the right thing anymore these days!
