Nolita Resident Offers Free Mattress; No Bed Bugs!
A well meaning and out of touch resident of Elizabeth Street left an extra mattress on the street earlier this week, free for the taking. "No bugs," the sign exclaimed. "Just don't need a second mattress."
Aww...how considerate. But no matter how many signs you put on this thing assuring people there are no bedbugs in it, there is a 99.9% chance it ended up in the back of a dump truck. Forget about bed bugs, no one but maybe a younger sibling would be able to look past the body fluids, sexual discharges, dead skin cells and whatever else you excreted all over this thing. Never mind that it was left it out on the streets of New York City.
Would you ever use a mattress left out on the street, a sign declaring it "bug free!" not withstanding?
