Hi-Five FAIL

It seems as though sometimes the simplest things are the funniest.  This morning I was reading through the newspaper distributed by my college, and even though I have the highest respect for the all-student staff, I couldn’t help but roll my eyes at an article in which the author was clearly trying very hard to incorporate dry humor.  By the time he threw in a joke about “one less place for students to get mugged on campus,” I had just about had it – not only because that is a real danger for college students, but because it was SUCH an awkward side comment that just did not belong in the article.  This is why I turn to sources such as the FAIL Blog for laughs – they don’t have to try too hard.  When I saw a post from The Apartment Expert, Lisa Trosien (author of the Apartment Marketing Blog), on Facebook of an Apartment Fail, I decided it was time for us to take a step back and let FAIL Blog do all the work for today’s post.

Now, it’s pretty obvious this was supposed to say “Free WI-FI Internet”, but every time I read it I can’t help thinking “Free HI-FIVE Internet.”  I figure the hi-five would be this apartment’s version of a Facebook Poke.  Well, at least it’s a sign that they can easily take down and replace.  I think the next fail might be a little bit harder to fix:

I mean, I’m all for truth in advertising, but don’t you want to give yourself a fighting chance when seeking out residents???

Finally, I would like to point out that this next fail perfectly illustrates my main message from Friday’s post:

It’s important to monitor ApartmentRatings.com!  I mean, even with an approval rating of 73%, if people are under the impression that the building burned to the ground, well GOOD LUCK.
