PittGirl was absolutely shocked by this story! You say, but PittGirl, WHAT shocked you about it?
Was it the fact that there are really people stupid enough to purchase a home over eBay without ever visiting said home? Not it.
Is it the fact that you cannot figure out how this happens to a toilet?
Is it the general deplorable conditions of the house?
Is it the fact that the former owner of the house of deplorable conditions had the audacity to advertise the slum as “needing several minor repairs,” and “near Fox Chapel.”
Is it the fact that this family moved from Montana to New Kensington, PA to “chase a job and a dream of owning a home”?
Ding ding ding ding ding!
I love the Burgh as much as the next guy, you know this, but who told these people that Southwestern PA is the place to be for a dream job and financial prosperity … of all the places in the whole country!?
I blame Dick Skrinjar, Mayor O’Connor’s Chief of Making Shit Up. It only makes sense.
