It's discussed almost on a daily basis and I feel like a huge asshole, but anyone that lives in an outer borough is suspect to me even though these things are everywhere. I'd rather be an asshole than have bedbugs so I don't care.

You get what you pay for with movers. If it worked out well for you that time, that's great, but the number of sob stories I've heard over the years has been ridiculous. I had to move a car across the country and even that was scary - I had to bond with a meth head and promise I'd go to some place called wildwood nj with him when he gets over to the east coast. The reputable places here are booked solid usually on the last 2 or 3 days of the month (or at least they are when I'm calling around).

I also like the fact that it's a good catalyst for decluttering and throwing out a bunch of stuff I should have thrown out years ago. Cleansing experience overall.
If you feel the need for some cleansing/moving therapy let me know. I've got enough therapy to share.

I haven't been online in 3 days because both places have been a huge mess this whole time. If not for all the help from friends and family I would be going totally insane right now.
I should feel really bad for you, but misery loves company and I hate feeling lonely. I've gained a lot of weight in the last week or two due to the stress and from not working out and eating all those pastries and holiday treats people mail to people they don't really like.
