  •  Sounds like being a landlord isn't for you if (0+ / 0-)

    you're at such risk of losing money on the endeavor.

    I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

      Have you ever had to evict tenants? Have you ever had to evict a family with children?

      Are you a tenant? Have you ever been evicted?

      Why would you write something like that?

      Many people have lost their bought houses and their rented homes, during the economic down turn. Many people have gone from being owners to being renters, and struggled with coming up with their rent.

      Why would you write something like that? That's the kind of thing someone would write who has never ever had any skin in the game, but still has plenty of opinions about how people who do have skin in the game should do business.

        I was evicted for having a FUCKING SERVICE DOG. Civil rights commission said it was discriminatory, but they weren't going to do anything about it. Because someone said I had a cat, too, which was not true. Never mind those other tenants who had dogs, they were friends of the landlord, and had special permission.

        Oh, and I lost my house in foreclosure to this economy. Sorry I'm not suffering enough for you. You don't sound like anyone who has had to go through anything except that traumatic eviction of folks who are victims of this economy. Do you have a skinny mustache that you twirl, too?
