This is why everybody hates landlords: Because they say stuff like this, in the newspaper(!):

  • The riskiest tenants are bartenders and servers. They often come home late…
  • [He] moved out of my apartment without killing or raping again.
  • I moved her belongings into the basement and locked the basement door.
  • Nobody paid rent as a child. Renters think apartments should be free, like the wind, rain and baby food.
  • I spend a fair amount of time peering in apartment windows for cats, to charge pet fees.
  • The good tenants, you don’t remember. You have to look them up.
