Padlocked doors. Strange light fixtures. Mutant cockroaches. There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable.

I would think "Oh, that has to be a stopping point" only for the wave to start cresting even higher from there. (I do think he took ...
