I went to pay my rent today (so nasty)

The porch had flies all around it because there were messy underwear all over the porch. My landlady was like oh I am trying to potty train my little boy who is 5 years old. Then she asked me to come in the house. That was honestly the nastiest house I have ever seen. There was clothes and dirty dishes and food everywhere. She didnt even seem to mind the mess. I wanted to run screaming out of there. What would you have done?

  • My husband and I used to install satellites, and we went to this old mobile home that was disintegrating practically as you watched it...two bedrooms and there were seven people living there.....two mentally handicapped women in one room with two dogs and two litters of puppies, the young man and the grandpa in the back room, and a woman and her two infants on the couch in the living room. The room with the disabled women and the dogs was covered in piss soaked newspaper and animal feces, the carpet throughout the house was also soaked and there were bugs crawling EVERYWHERE. The two infants were playing on the living room carpet. Needless to say, we declined the job and called child protective services.

  • Yeah, like another mom said...Hold my breath! LOL

    Just hope nothing goes wrong with your house/apt because if her's is such a mess, then she probaly won't be too likely to fix yours.

  • so when her kid has an accident she throws the undies on the porch instead of in the washer or soaking in the bathroom sink?!? and not that its horrible, but she is just now trying to potty train at 5? does that mean her poor kid doesn't go to school cause they wouldn't accept him if he was soiling himself. have me sad for this poor little guy :(

  • I guess that's the kind of trash renters should expect. Try BUYING a home.
