The term “landlord” feels so pretentious and outdated now, doesn’t it? Some high and mighty descriptor of a feudal lord, overseeing his kingdom. When most of the time it’s just, like, some jerk named Dave who takes four days to text you back about your broken sink.
I’d say that if we’re still gonna have such a thing as “landlords” floating around, we need them to earn that title.
Will the people in these Reddit and Twitter posts stack up to the challenge? Let’s find out.
12. Carpet bombing
Perfect, there’s no way anybody could notice that.
11. Hook you up
I wouldn’t be mad about this as long as the pressure was good.
10. That’s methed up
I love that this isn’t even him asking them to stop selling meth, just to be better at it.
9. The hose knows
That thing’s got more kinks than a leather night club.
8. Rat me out
Hope you didn’t name them yet.
7. Paying your dues
It seems that compassion is really a hallmark of the profession.
6. Old and moldy
Yeah and I’m paying you a bunch of money to live in it so let’s get with the times.
Landlords be like “it’s an old building” alright then I’ll pay old rent, here’s 20 bucks it’s a fortune

4. By the numbers
Numbers 18:21 – “To the Levites I have given every tithe in Israel for an inheritance, in return for their service that they do, their service in the tent of meeting.”
Yeah I can totally see why that means I need to give you an extra $130 a month, Rick.

3. Staying plugged in
I’m not even kidding, this person should spend time in jail.
That is straight up reckless endangerment.
Discovered tonight that the carbon monixide alarm in our apartment hasn’t had a battery for the entire time we’ve lived here and that it was ‘plugged in’ to two slits my landlord had carved in the wall. pic.twitter.com/BrPO8f7Pa8

It’s getting hot in here, so go pick all the locks.
Welcome to renting in London!
