    Person of Interest ends tomorrow night. :(

    I am very disappointed but at least it's ending at a good point instead of sticking around after it's worn out its welcome. Five seasons is a good run.

    Ahh, I assumed you were calling in with like an office phone or something and you could use your cell phone -- you should call in with like google voice or something. Maybe whatever the magic apple thing is that lets me take calls on my laptop.

    I sent a sternly worded message to the management that basically says: we can do this the easy way or the hard way. Either you negotiate a 4-8 month lease at my current rate, you can even pick the exact length to be most favorable, or I go month to month for as short as humanly possible, be unaccommodating when you try to show the place, give the minimum amount of notice and move out at the last possible instant.

    Orphan Black is ending this next season

    Which I think I'm happy about, since it had problems that it'd clearly hit later starting in the very beginning (namely, the enemy escalates waaay too much in between seasons)

    Everything about this apartment is great except for my leasing company.

    And if a pipe hadn't burst in my master bathroom last Halloween I wouldn't even know how shitty they are.

    The aftermath of that has been the fucking worst, though.

    It's like Comcast. As long as you don't have to ever talk to them. It's kinda ok. Product isn't that bad.

    As soon as you pick up the phone though. Hell on earth.

    Really though, is $600 a month worth the hassle of finding a good tenant again?

    I say good, because, it'll probably be easy to find a tenant, but not necessarily the one you want.

    Furthermore, I will hire at my own expense a polka band to practice loudly in the street beneath the apartment whenever I am aware that it is being shown.

    1 resume sent out to Lincoln and I get an e-mail wanting to set up a phone interview and a link to the relocation assistance webpage.

    I say good, because, it'll probably be easy to find a tenant, but not necessarily the one you want.

    When my landlord went all freaky weird with wanting to find a new roommate and get (not legally doable) access to the house whenever we wanted, we were all wtf

    Like dude, chill

    We're five late-twenties scientist women who want to keep the house this way. We're basically ideal tenants - we report problems as soon as they exist, and keep the place clean and in good order. We don't have friends who would damage the place, and the most stress we put on it is sitting on the couch watching TV. And yet he went so weird trying to fill a slot (that he had like four or five months to, and knew we were going to try and fill anyway) that he was having undergrad frat bros checking out the house and demanding weird lease additions (which would probably have caused us all to move out!)

    Just, come on, don't be crazy and weird.

    I like when your landlord raises your rent, and then you move out, and you see them advertising the apartment for what your lease was 8 years ago.

    Why didn't you just keep my lease at what it was when I first started renting instead of making me move out?

    Are you fucking stupid, landlord?

    The answer will shock you. No wait, what is the opposite of shock?

    The amount of stories I've heard of landlords actively choosing to make less money and also be colossal D-bags...

    ...yes?

    You see this all the time with commercial real-estate as well. Around here there have been several instances where grocery store chains decided not to renew their lease after the landlord raised the rent, so the grocery store just up and left leaving the landlord with an empty building for months without any renters.
