God bless anyone who's ever been apartment hunting in Dublin in recent times. 

Queues are nuts, rent is INSANE and if you even get a response from the person advertising the gaff – you're doing well. 

And the worst bit?

House-owners often make their potential tenants jump through hoops in order to even be considered for the role of over-priced house-sharer. 

But, this one takes the biscuit. 

Sent in by Twitter-user Eóin, about his friend Rolf O'Sullivan's experience, this is the information that Rolf was expected to share about himself prior to being even considered for the flat. 


The post says:

''Please tell me something about yourself, no essays please!

Funny video, anecdote, tales, fables... just don't overthink it.

If you want to bop us your Instagram you can (not that we will judge you for how cool or uncool your life is- just might help us get a better sense of who you are)

We'll be holding viewings next week in the evenings after work.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you! 


Ah, lads. 

Since when is an apartment application supposed to involve a rundown of all of your social medias?
