Thanks Sharon! I wish most of us weren’t familiar with these kinds of tenants – but unfortunately, I think we’ve all been there are one point or another. At least we can laugh at it every once in a while.

“a tenant with such a remarkable level of apathy” – haha, I’d say!!

Nice to have a little levity once in a while in the serious business of REI, although sadly, I think some of these may have happened to people :) Thanks Seth!

I hear you Sharon. I think it’s one of those things that is funny IF it isn’t happening to you (or if it happened a long time ago… tragedy + time = comedy).

Been there with some of those. Just had one move out. No 30 day notice left the place a mess. Have their deposit to account for.

Sorry to hear that Trevor. Unfortunately, it seems like most landlords just have to assume their tenants won’t do the right thing (which obviously isn’t always true – but that kind of mindset will at least offer a bit of protection for when things go wrong).
