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

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.

Live the questions now

Here’s some advice that my Godmother, Lynne Caldwell, gave me a few years ago. I found it again the other day and it struck me that at least I understand its wisdom now. She really did get my problem. It feels like he’s speaking directly to me. It’s from …

International Links: a Revision

In 2011, I wrote a post arguing that international links underperform. I gave examples, using many links nearly all of which have rotted in the 8.5 years since, showing that the ridership on various air and rail city pairs was lower if they were in two di…
