‘Phoebe, Monica or Rachel’: Quirky questionnaire for flat seeker in Bengaluru
The most interesting question of the questionnaire that followed apart from diet and office schedule was whether she was a ‘Phoebe, Monica or Rachel’ – the fictional flatmates from the sitcom ‘Friends’.
New Delhi: Bengaluru is one of the cities that witnessed the most number of outsiders as it can be considered a professional hub. So looking for flats and paying guests are a common phenomenon. Now a quirky questionnaire to interview potential flatmates has gone viral on social media. The story goes – a woman who was looking for a place to stay in the Garden City, was handed over the questions by the occupants of a flat.
The most interesting question of the questionnaire that followed apart from diet and office schedule was whether she was a ‘Phoebe, Monica or Rachel’ – the fictional flatmates from the sitcom ‘Friends’. Besides, the house seeker was also asked by the occupants whom she would hit on if Spiderman, Batman, Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow were chilling in a room.
Amazed by the questions, the woman posted the questionnaire on Twitter as a “Peak Bengaluru” moment.

Soon after the questionnaire was posted, one of its makers replied to the post saying, “Thanks for making our interview viral. When you have 150 applications, filtering is a must. Just being able to pay rent is no criteria.”
@AsthaPasta16 thanks for making our interview viral 😆
When you have 150 applications, filtering is a must. Just being able to pay rent is no criteria, @Devina18Kumar @ChasiaNeha we did well!

2 years back right before Covid came, I got rejected in a apartment interview having similar questions like this but it was face to face and quite fair too since the guy wanted a replacement and he wanted someone who can match the same interests in life.

I would never reply to this nonsense. Getting to know is one thing but getting to know who you would hit on? Really? And what if you are the perfect roommate but you have never seen batman and whatever.
