Seeing this a lot on Daft now. Yes, it’s a bed in a kitchen..You can cook the bacon before you get up. No, they are not bedside lockers. This. Is. Your. Life.

found this ad (above) for an apartment in Holystown [Dublin 15]

I did a reverse image search on one of the clearly-not-Holystown photos and it’s of Mrytle Beach Hotels in the US [South Carolina, on the Atlantic coast of America]. What the Hell’s going on?
