‘I Hope You Enjoy Your Airbnb Stay At My Home, a Place I Have Never Resided Nor Visited’

Dave Powers, McSweeney’s:

Welcome! I’m excited about your upcoming stay at my home! I’m using the term “home” loosely here, as the living space you’ll be inhabiting is simply a piece of real estate I have purchased with the intent of skirting local zoning laws in order to turn a profit.

A cool thing about these “disruptive” enterprises is seeing the constant real-world flaws in their premise, and why we have laws and regulations in the first place.
