I would never want to be a landlord, ever. People do not take care of your things like they would their own. There certainly are exceptions and yes you can get really good renters but oh the nightmares of bad ones. The lady that owns the condo next to me rents it out to what I thought were nice people. I actually have not had problem with them until the kid gassed me with exhaust fumes. Cuckoo Sue's response was something like, "If you treat your neighbors like you would want to be treated, it would go a long way." Now to preface this I did not gas them, seriously I did not, so I should be smiling as I am choking on Carbon Monoxide? I thought she would address the problem and it is a serious problem if he were to keep doing it, but her remarks are..about everything but the issue. Now I get an email with all sorts of lies in it that I complained about their barking dog? Their dog doesn't bark, why would I ? When they first moved in the dog howled painfully for days but I felt bad for the dog and with a big mouth dog like I have I would Never complain about that. Then I don't like where the kid parks his car? He isn't parking in my spot so I don't care, he rattled all the neighbors on the east side of the complex, not me, and the kid got really nasty with them on that side. I know that I probably ticked off the mother, because I am complaining about her adult child that lives in the basement, and she is defending him and the fact that she likes living where she is, so of course, I am going to be made to look like the problem. Believe me I can handle that! But cuckoo Sue as she is referred to in our little village, must be off her meds again....oh did I say that? Anyone have a long hose to gas my neighbors, I guess that is how you do things in her World.
So on a great note, last weekend I had the dye class and it was a perfect day for it, today it is snowing fuzzies that are actually two weeks late this year ..thankfully.
One of the students that was overwhelmingly happy brought me a dozen roses yesterday. What a wonderful unexpected gesture. It made me feel good to know, I can't be that bad. Maybe it comes in moments!! LOL
