I'm glad so many humanitarians have shown up to this thread to provide such easy solutions to what was thought to be a complex problem.  Keep up the good work!

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: addy2: cirby: FizixJunkee:
So deposits and first+last months are well within the reach of these folks living at Travelodge (i.e., are $0)?

Unless they're staying in the Travelodge for free, that "$0" is pretty much just made-up.

You keep saying "deposits and first+last months", but that's not the story around the area they're in. There's a lot of empty apartments and houses and duplexes in Central Florida, and quite a few of them are owned by individuals who don't screw around with credit checks and such. If you look around enough, you can find places that just want the first month's rent - for much less than the cost of the Travelodge for a month. There are also several housing assistance programs that help people with that sort of thing, so it's not anything like you portray.

There are literally places in the area where you can move in for $400-$500, no deposit. Some of them are pretty decent, too.

That's precisely the good information they are having trouble acquiring. I look forward to hearing how your trip to the Travelodge went.

He's full of shiat. I just moved to Orlando a month ago. There aren't any places for rent, even in the shiattiest neighborhoods, for $500/month with or without any other money up front.

But...but....he seemed so concerned and full of advice!

For some reason that reminded me of this...

stuhayes2010: abhorrent1: Why the fark are they all living at a Travel Lodge?

Because they were poor.

Yeah, but the real question is why were they poor?

Didn't they know that they could just go out and get money and not be poor anymore? There's this strange, persistent myth that not everyone is born to the same parents, with the same socioeconomic background, and provided identical education, food, water, shelter, and and resources. Pisses me off that people keep ignoring the reality that poor people are poor simply because they're lazy and choose not to have money, high-paying jobs, or use their excellent educations properly.

I thought that was how the tradition of Thanksgiving started.  "Happy Thanksgiving indians, now leave this area before we kill all of you."
