Tenant Puts Divider On Balcony, Talkative Neighbors Take Offense

There's something about the talkative people in this world, where when they're told to give all the blabbering a rest by the ones that are tired of listening, they can tend to get pretty offended. In this particular scenario it sounds like the chatty albeit friendly neighbors next door were not going to stop with their constant chatter anytime soon. It seems like the tenant who had exhausted their willingness to listen anymore wasn't really left with any other options. And then when they do exercise control over what they can actually control, their neighbors insist on being especially aggressive. Not cool, man.

New Roommate Rents Two Rooms, Only Expects To Pay For One Room

Well oh well, this new roommate is coming in hot on the scene with all kinds of red flag behavior.

Sounds like the best move here could be to backtrack on this particular new roommate, and get someone new in there.

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.

Human beings can be terrible when it comes to taking advantage of someone's good graces. By the sound of it, this guy is feeling a bit of regret over having to confront his roommates, but it also sounds like he didn't really have any other choice.

Queen Karen, President Of The HOA Gets Defeated

Nothing quite warms our hearts like a tyrannical, shady, and genuinely mean Karen getting it in the end. This particular Karen was enforcing the rules while she wasn't abiding by the most important ones herself. This ultimately manifests in Karen's self destruction. Sounds like she lost everything.
