I HATE BEING A LANDLORD!!!!
Why do I get such exasperating, dishonest, disrespectful tenants?!This is round two of headaches from the Provo rental! (can't complain about the Cedar tenants - they've been a blessing).
Seriously... I get deception and excuses every month. And I'm so naive, I give them the benefit of the doubt and let things slide. Things like due dates.
[enter sarcasm] Crazy how that 1st of the month just sneaks up on ya all the time... it's not like we ALL have several weeks of warning before it comes around....
You'd think I'd have learned my lesson after our last tenants there, who suddenly flew the coop owing us a month's rent. We've had a collection agency after them for months now. My brother warned me not to rent to them (for a very specific reason that I can't state on here. But call me. You'll nod your head in agreement). Then I thought I was lucky we got new renters in immediately. HA. Lucky me? Stupid me. We had dozens of applicants (and STILL get calls occasionally) and we chose these ones because I had compassion on their situation. And I internet stalked them and they seemed like good people. So, lesson learned: NEVER BE NICE TO ANYONE!!! You only get burned.
Please, U.S. housing economy.... improve. Improve veryvery soon. So we can sell these townhomes-of-torture and be free from the swindling con artists that plague the 1st of my every month.
