These Homeowners Were Promised A Real Lake But Got A Fake One Instead

Published 5 years ago

With more and more high rise condos popping up everywhere, green areas in cities are becoming a rarity, especially in some more densely populated areas in China. So imagine peoples’ reactions when real estate developers in Changsha, Hunan, announced that a newly-built apartment complex will have a beautiful pond between the buildings. The apartments probably sold out like hotcakes! However, not everything turned out to be as perfect as it sounded.

As soon as the new homeowners moved in, they noticed something off about the little urban lake. Turns out it wasn’t a lake at all – it was just a big piece of blue plastic! But hey – at least the little bridge was a nice addition.

“So I’m supposed to be standing in the middle of blue water, which in fact doesn’t exist. There is no rock or plants,” a disappointed homeowner told the press.

South China Morning Post even reported that due to the rush to build new buildings, the quality and safety of them has dropped significantly.

Looks like the homeowners won’t be dipping their feet in this lake anytime soon

People had a lot to say about the fake lake

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
