Man places to rent are so crappy

So we have gone looking at a couple rentals lately, not telling Gramma K about it, and damn does the stuff in our price range suck. We looked at this one completely stale apartment from like the 60s and when I flipped the garbage disposal on, it fell out of the sink and all this yellow sludge ran out from inside the cabinet. The landlady, this big sweaty southern person in a white tank top, muttered something about "blacks" and then said that they'd probably be able to fix that. Then the next place had this blind guy living next door, there were all these wind chimes and things to let him know where he was, that would drive me crazy. Another place was directly above a donut shop, with the vent ducting from the frying vat actually running up through the middle of the living room. It was kind of nice with 20s molding and hardwood floors, but I did not like the ducting chimney. Maybe the guy who used to own the donut shop lived there and didn't mind, but that was supremely ghetto.
