  • Locking our porch: update

    Followup to more landlord craziness: locking our porch.

    When I came home yesterday I found our bolt had been removed and the duct tape was gone. We had also received the following letter.

    Apt 3
    63 Pinckney St
    Somerville MA 02144

    Back door 3rd Floor

    Hello All

    I am surprised you see it fit to tell the Handyman that I am locking the back door but you failed to tell him that you are responsible for the locking of the back door at night for your wicked act of opening the door when I am in the bathroom and in the middle of the night to harass me as you do with radiation.

    I wrote you a letter, I can send you a copy if you lost yours to warn you that I will take away that privilege if you continue your actions against me. LEGALLY YOU CANNOT ADD OR FIX ANYTHING TO THIS PROPERTY WITHOUT MY WRITTEN PERMISSION.

    I WILL ENDEAVOR TO OPEN THE PORCH DOOR IN THE MORNING OR WHEN I FINISH USING THE BATHROOM AND CERTAINLY WHENEVER I AM GOING OUT. AT NIGHT, IT WILL BE LOCKED BEFORE I GO TO BED. IF YOU NEED IT OPENED AT OTHER TIMES WHEN IT IS LOCKED KINDLY JUST CALL ME OR WRITE A NOTE.
    I have been extremely good to you all and generous in many ways. I am here for you. By the way, kindly rinse your milk bottles, canned food. When you were the only tenants your cans and bottles where never rinsed. The City wants them cleaned before putting in the recycling bin. I am here for you.

    (Also, as a helpful commenter discovered yesterday, our landlord is being foreclosed on.)

    Many large companies today are software monopolies that give their product away for free to get monopoly status, then do horrible things. Can we do anything about this?

    How do cars fare in crash tests they're not specifically optimized for?
