A sad bed bug story

New, 3 comments

An 84 year old woman living in the Roosevelt Houses finally had her bed bugs exterminated after a month of waiting for the New York City Housing Authority to send people over. The elderly woman was "forced to sleep in a chair in the corner of her living room because the bugs have taken over her bed". If that isn't sad enough for you her daughter's statement is sure to do it, "I mean, my mom is getting eaten up every day, all day long, and it's heartbreaking to see your mom with red bumps all over her and then they turn black." She was initially told she would have to wait until the end of September for the exterminators to come. Did no one learn from the Pulp song "Help The Aged"? [Gothamist]
