Karen Gets Evicted, Lies About Eviction, Loses In Court

Oh boy, did Karen really set herself up for ultimate failure in this scenario. Sounds like she got evicted, tried to lie about the eviction, and then got easily defeated in court. Karen shouldn't have even tried.

Family Takes Revenge On Slimy Slumlord

Man, this slumlord sounds like he was one case of a particularly greedy and insensitive human being. You have a family muddling through a hard time, dealing with all kinds of troubling pests, and the slumlord can't be bothered to help? Absurd. Fortunately, the family was able to take a simple yet costly revenge against the landlord. With a little leakage from their trailer, they were able to eventually force the slumlord into having to pay $25,000 for repairs to fix a problem that didn't even exist.

Choosing beggar roommates are a handful. Seriously, it sounds like this dude was all excuses whenever the utilities bill showed up. That can make for quite the frustrating and nerve wracking process for the other roommate, who is just trying to ensure that his credit score isn't impacted by another person's carelessness.

Patronizing News Anchor's Rant About Young People Sparks Discussion

Young people definitely get some interesting criticism in the news, like all the times Millennials have Killed an Industry, so this doesn't seem like much of a departure. In an interview on housing rights in Britain, a news anchor and landlord "reported" that young people don't have the skills to rent, since they don't know how to change lightbulbs or do basic tasks. This ruffled some feathers among young people and tenants.

San Francisco has a reputation for high priced living.  Peter Berkowitz thought, why rent a room when I can build myself a Harry Potter cupboard to live in and pay much less to set up in someone's dining room? 



It's actually a pretty sweet setup with a cozy bed, a "skylight" for reading and nightlights all around the roof. He pays $400 a month for rent and the cost of the pod itself ended up being $1300, bring his total monthly costs to about $508 for a year according to his website



If you're in the San Francisco area and you would like to live in a professional quality fort that would make kid you super jealous, Berkowitz is available for consultations. He's charging a "very reasonable price" to help anyone who wants to build a pod for themselves and says he's, "I'm more interested in getting good at building pods than in making money at this point".

The National Low Income Housing Commission paints a rather bleak picture of housing affordability in the United States. The state which requires the least amount of hours at minimum wage in order to afford housing is a tie between West Virginia and Arkansas at 63 hours. That's just over a week and a half of a 40-hour work week. Sorry kids, looks like that fancy dinner at Applebees will have to wait until next month.
