'Call the police... see what happens': Landlord blows his gasket when ex-tenant moves out and takes the appliances she purchased with her

Landlords are the scum of the Earth. They hike up the rent 10% every month, they paint over your electrical outlets, and they're clearly under the impression that the entire world exists for their profit.

'I'm not feeling safe in my own apartment': Cheapskate landlord gets fined $10,000 for jerry-rigging electrical instead of replacing a faulty stove after endangered tenant reported it to the fire department

One of the few benefits of being a renter is that you are not responsible for maintaining a property's upkeep. However, that is simultaneously a huge downside if you have a chintzy landlord. If your unskilled landlord is a cheap, do-it-yourself type, you might find yourself constantly smelling methane gas, putting putty over leaks, and watching him paint over holes in the wall.
