Normal Wear and Tear

>> Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Sorry for the brief delay in postings.

Everyone and their mother is moving out and moving in right now so I am actually having to work.
I KNOW, how horrible is that?
Doing all these move outs got me to thinking.
It seems that every person has a different definition of normal wear and tear.
SO I took it upon myself to clarify.

First off if you live in an apartment less than 6 months then you should have no wear and tear.
End of story.
Really, End of Story.

If your child colors all over the walls that is NOT considered normal wear and tear.
I don't care how or which way you try to twist it(my child's an artist, you have children you should know, it's normal to color on the wall..) you gonna get charged.

Just because a stain wont come up doesn't mean that it's normal wear and tear. For example this weird goop on the floor that smelled kind of like death rolled in mustard is just a nasty stain there is nothing normal about it....

Although I do appreciate you leaving your nasty broom with the death rolled mustard all over it to show that you attempted cleaning it up.

If you have lived in a place for awhile you are going to get high traffic area stains. That is normal and I would agree that you shouldn't be charged for that.
However high traffic areas are usually just worn looking carpet maybe a shade darker then the rest of the carpet...

High traffic areas usually don't have shades of pink and poo stains.

I will continue my list tomorrow.
I must go bathe in Purell

PS-I personally believe a portion of your security deposit should go to me for having to go and assess your nasty mess.

Sometimes I wonder whether those people looking for proof that humans evolved from animals should look no further than the average renter.

I am left wondering what exactly death rolled in mustard smells like...maybe then again I don't really want to know.
You crack me up!

The gigantic hole I punched in the wall the night I got really drunk is normal wear and tear right?

How about a nasty black ring around the toilet inside and tubs cause they don't know what cleaner is? Is that normal wear and tear? Or black drip pnas cause theyu never changed them the 7 years they lived there? Lol people are utterly stupid!
