Oh man, that is good. If your tenant has any Catholic relatives, that will get her for sure.

Ah, the things we think to say but can't.

Autumn

What a great guy! Seriously hilarious post. Sorry for the tenant issues, though!

Amy

Super funny!

Sadly, I know both sides of the renters stick.
As a looooong time ago, making $200 a month, almost getting evicted every thirty days sort of girl, I only replied to the phone calls of voice mails that were upbeat and sounding like they wanted to make things work. I guess the saying is true that you can catch more flies with honey, blah, blah, blah.

But it's still SO MUCH FUN to daydream!

While I now covet both your new house and your funny husband, I hate to Rain On This Parade, but in my experience, the folks that stiff you on rent don't usually have that thingy..erm what's it called...OH YEAH: A SOUL. Guilt does not work on these people. As a New Yorker, I Heatily recommend ABJECT FEAR AND DOMINATION. This has gotten me a lot of stuff: like trash removal and a discount at my local Starbucks. I would say you should get a bunch of magazine, cut letters out that spell the following:

Dear L-
You suck and I'm not gonna take it anymore. I have changed the lock. Pay this month and next if you ever want to see your stuff again.

Attaching this to the door with a steak knife I have also found to be quite efffective.

Changing the locks would'nt be such a bad idea. If you've given her 30 day notice.....I think you would be within your rights to change them. I hope it gets better for you. :o)

Your husbands letter was very funny! ;o)
