Entitled Boomer calls neighbor 'lazy renter,' not knowing he's owned the house for 3 years: 'I told her to find the nearest retirement home'

When you purchase a home, unfortunately, the neighbors come with it. And you never know what to expect. Are they going to be extremely friendly neighbors who bring over a welcome basket when you first move in, or are you going to get the neighbor who keeps to themselves, leading you to think they could be a possible secret spy but you'll never find out because they never come out of their house? Either way, either other is better than getting stuck next to an entitled Karen who will call the co…

It's getting stormy out there for the renters of the world.

When you're working two jobs and can hardly make ends meet at the end of the month, the last thing you want to hear at the family gathering is constant nagging about homeownership.

'Streaming is his livelihood, but...I had to make a point': Dude cuts wifi during roommate's popular livestream

If you're not good with your money , it doesn't matter how much you make. For those who make a regular or lowish salary, it seems impossible that someone making $100k+ could ever lose all that.

A lot of people find that money burns a hole in their pocket. They get their paycheck and immediately start thinking of all the cool products they could buy. Some…

Update: 'It's a happy ending': L.A. landlord sneakily overcharges rent by 45%-50%, gets caught by a renter and has to dish out $4,300 to all of her tenants

When it comes to the housing market and the renting world, life seems unjust. It seems like the landlords are always coming up, while the people just trying to live their lives with a roof over their heads are always on the down. It's simply unfair. However, sometimes things work out for the underdogs, like for these renters recently in L.A.

‘Her rent is MORE than my mortgage’: Woman with 9 cats is upset her homeowner-boyfriend won't move into her overpriced rented house

If you own a home with a low interest rate in this economy, holy moly, you have to hold on tight to that. Most people reaching the typical “homeowners” age are not even able to dream of owning a home, let alone, one with a reasonable interest rate. So when this guy posted on Reddit asking if it was unreasonable for him to not want to give up his home that he owns and only pays 2.8% interest, the internet obviously sided with him.

If you're going to poke the bear, expect the claws—or whatever that saying is. Basically, if you are going to try and pull something shady off, you should always be prepared for it to backfire. Karma does not taste so sweet when you're on the receiving end. Take, for instance, this know-it-all neighbor trying to finagle his way out of responsibilities. Apparently, this guy was renting a house that shared a fence with its neighboring house. Unbeknownst to the landlord, this guy was notoriously n…

Tenant Makes Their Money-grubbing Landlord Lose $9,000 When They Raise Rent by $150 After Bragging About Their Excessive Wealth

Being a renter feels like you're perpetually stuck under the foot of the 1%. As you watch your paycheck drain from your bank account into your landlord's every month, it's tough not to feel a certain resentment and resistance to their wealth, since it's you who's paying their restaurant bills, buying their cars, and giving them the means to install indoor pools in their second home in Tahoe. But what if there was a way to get back at your greasy, slime-ball of a landlord?

'I missed the part where that's my problem': Tenant enjoys an 'I-told-you-so' moment after refusing to cooperate with unprepared realtors; agents get locked out

For some odd reason, realtors and landlords seem to think that everyone is sitting around at home all the time. Because they like to think we're loafing around the house at all hours, it means that they can simply pop by at any moment, expecting us to be ready to greet them at the entryway. Newsflash: Tenants have lives and we are not waiting on your beck and call.

‘I now tell them what a bad landlady she is’: Ex-tenant is still connected to building's door system, so he uses it to give a ‘buyers warning’ to potential new renters

Not all heroes wear capes. This time, the hero is just a faceless voice heeding a helpful warning. It all started three years ago when this Redditor lived in a complex that was run by an incompetent landlord. You know, the kind that never responds to you when you have an issue, never fixes anything, and the place gets constant violations because they refuse to do anything they're supposed to when keeping the place up. When you get this kind of landlord, usually you find out too late and have to…

That's right, these neighbors seemed so entitled, we had to combine rude and obnoxious to make rudenoxious and we're not even sorry about it. Every now and then we come across a Reddit story where someone feels bad about what they did, but the further you read the more you realize the truth. That this person is just considerate and the person or persons making them feel guilty is actually the guilty one(s).

'The landlord is very upset': Landlord insists engineer tenant fix their own appliances without realizing how much the tenant is billing him

You can't expect the average person to know how to fix large household appliances . If your washer or dryer breaks, it's not exactly recommended that you start taking the thing apart to discover the issue. Most of us don't have the capacity to fix a refrigerator or a stove either---there are some things you just leave to the professionals. That's why it's so odd that u/nopanicprepper's landlord decided that when appliances break , their tenants are the perfect people to fix them. The poor OP ha…

'[Don't] charge senseless, greedy fees': Landlord charges tenants $10/month to pay rent online; thrifty tenant mails a paper check instead, forcing the landlord to go to the bank every month

Just the knowledge that our landlords probably bought our apartment for 1/10th it's current value and are living fat off of our rent check every month is enough to grind every tenant's gears, but if a landlord has the audacity to wring out a single cent more than our rent amount at the end of the month, we feel the back of our throats prickle with rage.
