Landlords, and their lording of land

I swear that time never moved so fast until I had to start paying rent. As soon as I write one soul-crushing check, the next one is due. Where the hell did my month go?

    Since you don’t actually own anything when you pay rent, don’t you think there should be a law that requires landlords to provide you with tangible goods as well as a place to stay?

    Each month could be a surprise. You go and drop off your rent check and your landlord gives you a crate of clementines. Or maybe the next month your landlord gives you five new dish towels. Maybe on the third month you get a dog-eared copy of “Empire Falls”. Next month you get a bottle of antifreeze.

    You know…just to tip the scale.

    PS, we can all afford houses in Abington, MA like right this second.

    it’s not even close to michigan. you can get foreclosed houses (even in cities not named detroit) for 15, 20 grand.

    I’m sure that’s true, but I think the reason those houses are so cheap is the lack of jobs.

    If I had $100,000 to blow, maybe I’d buy a few houses out there and make them affordable renting…but that seems like the worst job in the world.

    the worst job in the world is buying someone’s foreclosed house and then renting it back to them. all of the joy of personal, face-to-face depression exploitation.
