Better warn Mom- this guy will be moving back in soon
...because he's proving in this ad that he's simply not ready to be out on his own yet.
I mean, think about it. He's an "artist" obsessed with the need for a good couch (you know, buddy, if you spent more time actually working and less time reflecting on how badly you need a place to comfortably rest your butt, you might not have such crappy credit...) He doesn't need a clean apartment, he doesn't need a good credit score, he just needs a good couch. That will fix everything. Uh huh.
Ah, but he's got a girlfriend ready to give him truly horrible advice- "just go to Aaron's- you just need first month's payment!" Yeah, that's all you need- kind of like those "Sign and Drive" events where you can drive off with a car "for practically just your signature." Next comes the other 35 payments you'll be making on the awesome couch you "needed" and which will end up costing you roughly five times more than you would have paid for the same couch at Penny's if you had just been willing to save for it. Then again, if you had ever shown any inclination to save for anything, you wouldn't have that terrible credit score, would you?
Tip to couch guy: That girlfriend is not your friend. Tip to girlfriend: Your "artist" boyfriend is in a big enough hole without you handing him another shovel.
Someone do this idiot a favor and introduce him to a few Aaron's customers- or Rent A Center customers (same people.) Maybe he'll get a badly-needed education concerning companies which take advantage of people with crappy credit scores who want to pretend that they have the right to nice things like people who have good credit scores (or who just save up for the things they want, and know the difference between "wanting" and "needing.")
Maybe the same person can also do his mom a favor and encourage her to change her locks. Because her idiot son is on the way back to her basement, this time with even more dismal prospects than before he moved out.
