New Yorker begs NextDoor app users to send him a POSITIVE test for COVID so he can get out of entertaining visiting relatives – and he lucks out with an offer from a sick neighbor
A New Yorker begged NextDoor app users in his neighborhood to send him a positive COVID test so that he could get out of entertaining his visiting relatives — and he lucked out with an offer from a sick neighbor.
Die man, who lives in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, explained that some of his relatives were flying in to visit New York, but he didn’t want them to stay at his apartment.
He said that he already told them that they couldn’t crash at his place, but they appear to have ignored him and already bought plane tickets.
He added that the situation was giving him ‘crippling anxiety’ and that he spent three days trying to get out of it.
Fortunately for him — but perhaps not for his family — one of the man’s neighbors has since chimed in with a photo of her own positive test.
