A teenager has revealed that she accidentally moved into a retirement community, but it turns out that she enjoys living among senior citizens.
Madison Kohout, 19, from Norman, Oklahoma, recounted her comical mistake on TikTok, explaining that she relocated to a small town in Arkansas last month and signed a lease without viewing the property.
In the now-viral video, she is excitedly looking at the apartment listing on her laptop. The footage then cuts to her standing in front of a ‘Senior Citizen Apartments’ sign at the complex, hanging her head in embarrassment.
Madison, who goes by Madi Ann, stunned TikTok users with her incredible story, which she has compared to something out of a Hallmark movie.
The video has been viewed more than 3.4 million times and received thousands of comments from people who were everything from envious to confused.
‘This could be a sitcom,’ one person wrote, while another added: ‘I may be boring as hell but this is my dream.’
‘Honestly this is the move,’ someone else agreed. ‘No loud neighbors. Plus they’ll probably make you tons of food.’
While speaking with Newsweek, Madi admitted that it took her a bit of time to realize that she was by far the youngest person in the community.
‘The first week of moving here was crazy! I was busy with finding a job and setting up my apartment, I didn’t even notice!’ she said.
‘I thought it was a bit weird that all of my neighbors were significantly older than me. After my first week I saw a sign in front of the apartments, and it had clicked!’
Madi, who works as a nursing assistant, explained in a follow-up video that it was actually her mom, Gigi, who tipped her off about the spacious two-bedroom apartment that costs just $350 per month.
The teen explained that the residence is considered equal opportunity housing, which means it does not discriminate by age.
