    Crazy Craigslist Ad

    Surfing the RV section this morning and came across this.......



    Homeless girl living in bushes needs RV - $1000 (Sparks)




    Hi I need a affordable rv for a homeless girl living in the bushes for real. She is very honest and doesn't do any drugs or drink alcohol. She has never stolen a dime from me and eats very little. She is on the petite side but has a very bad temper and is almost completely antisocial. I am a truck driver and stop by a few minutes a day. She is not capable of functioning in society or civilization. In some ways she like a wild animal. Her name is Coyote and the police leave her alone. I was hoping someone could help out with a rv I can move around for her out by Fernley and Lovelock in the desert. She cannot live in a home where someone expects her to be tidy. She cannot drive a vehicle. Thanks for understanding and please don't flag.

    No, I agree. However, she could have lost her marbles due to being homeless. Chicken or the egg, I guess.

    Most people become homeless because they have a mental illness that makes it hard for them
    to hold down a steady job and function in society. They then self medicate with drugs and alcohol, in part because of a lack of mental
    health services, lack of understanding of mental health and illness, and since itís so easily
    and readily available. Then itís a circle thatís very hard to break. Bottom line is that preventative and primary care for homeless is still cheaper then treating it acutely at a hospital. Clean needle programs, housing, food, substance abuse and counseling, etc.

    Very interesting post on Craigslist none the less! This girl is obviously not functioning on all cylinders, not sure how anybody could think that this person is in her right mind to live as he describes.
