Doing Laundry Is Awful Enough Without Having ‘Fag’ Spray Painted All Over The Place

Erik Showstead, a gay 42-year-old who manages an apartment complex in Seattle’s Capitol Hill district, suspects “street thieves” who have regularly broke into his building for the spray painted “FAG” slurs all over the building’s laundry room. Police say if caught, the suspects could very likely face hate crime charges. Between this and coin operated machines, is there no justice?

    When I read the headline the first time, I was like, “What the hell is Fag Spray?”

    42? Damn he looks good.

  • Oh boy

    Andy was I thinking the same thing!

    Erik you look great and seem like a wonderful guy! You are a real cutie. I am sorry you are having to deal with this bullshit. There is so much human garbage out there. Hang in there!

    Erik, please move to my city and manage my building. You seem like a responsible, well-trained property manager who actually cares.

    $1.25 for laundry. It’s $1.65 in NY. Dayumn.

    “gobsmacked”. I thought only Brits use that terminology.

    He’s kind of whiny and dramatic, wouldn’t you say?

  • Francis

    Sounds like stupid, probably jobless and homeless, street urchin thugs.

    Too bad he and the other tenants are being harassed, hopefully they find the culprits.
