Slumlord Refuses To Give Tenant Security Deposit, Tenant Puts Slumlord Out Of Business

Unfortunately, the world's in no short supply of landlords that are blinded beyond belief by obscene levels of greed. All this greed can manifest into some very shady, generally immoral antics. In this case, it sounds like the slumlord was clearly not going to play nice, and return the security deposit to the tenants after they moved out. The good news is that the tenants didn't stand for it, and instead decided to fight back by ingeniously securing a website that'd go on to be the slumlord's ultimate archenemy.

Tenants Break All The Rules, Ask Landlord To Be More Professional

Man, oh, man, these tenants sound like a nightmare to deal with. The kudos definitely goes to the landlord here. The landlord handles the situation by listening to those malicious compliance chills, and using the very "professional" rules they asked the landlord to follow, to ultimately bring the tenants down. Even after the victory in the small claims court, the landlord exercises self control and doesn't rub it in their faces. Good for her. Love to see a situation where the landlord is actually being the nice human.

Passive Aggressive Notes from Angry Neighbors

The only reason society even sort of works is because we have a thin veneer of civility constantly guarding our true intentions from one another. But if neighbors detest each other enough, that's when the paper and markers come out. Drama can be a musical of many notes, like this fed up manager leaving notes or this note escalation after a coworker stole lunches.

Landlord Won't Replace Mailbox Key, Tenant Takes Revenge

Realizing that you've moved into a new space overseen by an incapable, wildly inconsiderate landlord is one of the worst realizations to have. You're out there paying all that money to live in a decent enough space, and when something goes wrong, you can't even get your landlord to help you out? No thank you. These dudes found themselves with a landlord who just couldn't seem to get around to replacing their busted mailbox key. So, when the tenant's final day of living in the apartment had arrived, and the landlord was nowhere to be found when it was time for the apartment inspection, the tenant put that house key right in the very mailbox that the landlord hadn't procured the new key for. A simple enough, yet brutally effective petty revenge. Plus, this story's been made all the better by those ridiculous typos.

Low-Life Landlord Dealt Justice By Tenant

Anyone who enjoys seeing sweet justice getting dealt out will get a kick out of this. We have a low-life landlord, who quite simply, gets their comeuppance to the satisfying tune of having to pay up, then having assets at their place of business seized, and then having the same money returned. 

If this landlord revenge got you going, we recommend checking out this story of the landlord who refused to give the tenant back their deposit, so a court revenge followed. Similar in tone, and again, oh so satisfying.

Tenant Refuses to Give Up Parking Spot for Disabled Lady

Sometimes we find ourselves in awkward situations, especially when it's over a finite resource like parking. There are plenty of times handicapped parking spot hogs need to be taught a lesson, but this situation has a more complex backstory than some rando just illegally occupying a handicapped parking space at the store. The most important thing to do in these situations is to take a step back and think "why am I in this situation?" In this case it seems like the apartment manager may be the one to blame for all this madness.
