"Too bad honesty has to be enforced!"
"Too bad everybody's not exactly like us!"
Guys...why should they care what you think of them? What does it matter? Why should you think anything? Who CARES what you think? Why does it make them bad, horrible, evil people because they left junk on the carpet?
My (husband's and my) landlady brings in a team of professionals to clean and repaint apartments when someone moves out. We didn't scrub our old apartment before we left it either, but she didn't expect us to. That's what a security deposit is for, after all.
But then our landlady owns a great deal of property, not just one building. She's always been fair with us, but I don't know of her ever agreeing to reduce rates just because we or anyone else were so sweet. Lynn's worldview really makes me sick. Not everyone thinks you can eat good vibes and invest charm.
