I know some renters are trash but some landlords are douchebags:<quoted text>My dad was a landlord and so am I and I have literally had to drag the garden hose inside to spray down the filthy walls. Straight married couple, of course.
What kills me is the description of rental properties that my wife and I looked at. One landlord offered the property with a garage and when we got there the garage was destroyed (looked like a car had run into the back a looong time ago. The pictures of the inside were lovely but when we got there the other half of the double had 8 malt liquour bottles on the porch.
Another irritation of mine: wtf is it about cats that people freak about? I know sick kitties pee in inappropriate places but come ON $400 deposits AND $100 a month pet fee (I am not making that up). Its just a rotten scam to get more money out of people who are attached to their animals.
I have only briefly every lived in my own home (divorce, coming out, etc) in my entire life. Neither my parents nor I have ever left a place in poor shape.
shew, glad I got that off my chest.
