How Hard Is It?

I’m yet again in the position where I need to find another place to live. The worst part about being on the verge of being homeless isn’t the fear of not having a place to live, but with limited means- having to rely on strangers to help. To deal with all the complete and total absolute idiots responding to my Craigslist wanted ad. It’s just that bad. How hard is it to read and comprehend one paragraph, honestly? Is this a “skill” these days that requires training? And it’s not just Craigslist, it’s all over.
If I have a certain geographical area listed in my ad and you are outside of that area,
how hard is it to be aware that location isn’t what I’m looking for?
If I clearly state that I have a cat (and 2/3 of my pictures for the listing include her),
how hard is it to not reply if you don’t allow pets?
If I say I have a certain amount of money to move,
how hard is it to know that I can’t afford something 4 times that amount?
I mean, I’m not exactly asking people to read my MIND here.. Just a short listing. Is this too much to expect and hope for?
The thing that terrifies me is that these people have done something to be in the position of offering a room, while it’s clearly not by leading a sane/sober/educated/career-driven life. And myself- who works hard enough at any job for employers to minimally deem “one of the best”, can at least comprehend a paragraph, has never scammed/conned anyone, not a substance abuser .. is the one who is homeless. Are these qualities just not important? Am I just going through a “rough time”, when I typically refuse to believe a person can’t control their lives? Is there a quick change to myself that I can make to turn things around? Or is society as we know it, diminishing? To be continued…
