Landlords. whatare the odd things/conditions you've found in apts
To clarify.... what are some of the odd things you have found in your tenant's apartments. Things you disapprove of. Or even the odd/bizzare conditions you have found your tenants living in?
I ask this because since I have moved in to my apartment....to save money I never had the water turned on. The heat & electricity yes... but not the water. I can only assume the horrid things people reading this are imagining. "Does he bathe?? How does He clean the various parts of the apartment without water??? How does he FLUSH THE TOILET!!!!???? OMG!!!!!" ... etc. etc.
I cart my own water in. More than enough to fill the toilet tank, mop the floors, clean the fixtures & shower on the weekends (I shower TWICE a day at work on the weekdays). I also do my laundry at work.
I also accumulate aluminum cans.... let me explain.......where I work they have big outdoor & indoor functions where twice a month or so I can take home anywhere from 50-500 aluminum cans & misc. foodservice foil (aluminum foil trays/platters etc. etc.). Otherwise they would all go in the garbage. I wash, clean & dry them all so there is NO food or liquids rotting on/in the cans/platters. They are all found on tables or in the kitchen.... it is not like I am digging thru the dumpsters for them. So they dont stink or attract vermin. I have been VERY vigilant about that.
I need to save up 200lbs of aluminum scrap to get a decent price for them at the recycler's.
I have 3 BIG black garbage bags full of the cans & foodservice foil sitting in a closet.
I wonder what my landlord would think if he knew I had them in my apartment.
Oh I forgot .... I also have 7 marijuana plants & a mini meth lab on the back room too. (JUST KIDDING!!! LOL!).
Other than the above I have been a fantastic tenant.... I pay my rent early (sometimes a month in advance), never complain, do everything I can to NOT annoy/disturb the other 2 tenants (3 apartments in a converted house).... I have even asked my landlord on several occasions "how am I doing as a tenant" & always get a great response.
