Tenant: "I tried to pay rent but you were closed"
Me: "Why didn't you drop it in the 24 hour slot?"
Tenant: "I didn't know there was a 24 hour slot"
Me: "That is where you dropped your rent last month"
"I am not going to pay rent because the gym was closed for a whole week this month."
"I had to buy presents for Christmas, I couldn't not get my kids presents."
"Here is the rent check but can you not deposit it until the 20th?"
"I had to bail my boyfriend out of jail so I am going to be late this month."
Tenant: "If I don't pay rent this month what is going to happen?"
Me: "You will get evicted"
Tenant: "Really, why? That's ridiculous"
Tenant walks in puts down their new iPhone, keys to their BMW and their LV bag and tells me they can not pay rent this month, because they had other bills that were way more important.
Isn't having a place to live considered high on the bill list, or is that just me?
"You didn't get my rent? What! I mailed it to you! The post office must have lost it"
"Why would you mail me the check when you live next door?"
"Um...you were closed"
I love how tenants conveientaly forget about the 24 hour drop box only on certain months
I can’t pay my rent because….
"The Heat chocked and lost the &*%$*& series."
"My grandma is visiting, and I want to take her out to a nice dinner."
"The gardeners start mowing the %$#&@ lawn before noon every $%&#$-in week, and I should have peace and quiet until a reasonable hour."
"I don't have washer and dryer hook-ups in my apartment, and I hear the complex across the street does."
"I think my apartment is haunted."
"Because a gypsy stole all my money."
