FML - The follow-up

Today, I was threatened with eviction over $6.25. They waited three days to tell me and left me one business day to get it done. Six fucking dollars and 25 goddamn cents. FML

Wow. So many trolls. I'm the author, forgot to sign in when I posted it. First, I live in Northern Virginia, not DC, although I'm not far from it. There aren't people banging on the door to get in here, though. Second, it's an apartment complex so no bank or mortgage involved. Third, I had been sick in the hospital for most of the past 3 weeks. So my rent was 2 days late due to illness. I paid the late fee of $200 dollars without a complaint. (Most late fees are only $50 in comparison.) I simp

Yes but acting illegally goes beyond business. At a minimum they're required to give a "Pay or Vacate" notice, which is at LEAST 3 days pretty much everywhere in the US, and in Washington DC, where the OP Lives, it's actually a full 30 days.

It's a very tempting idea lol unfortunately it would be as much a pain for op as it would be for the person op needs to pay the money to but still so very tempting it just might be worth it lol

to #7, the length of the eviction notice depends on the situation, like for things not related to payment reasons, it's thirty days. if it is payment reasons, it's up to two weeks. and yes my friends, I have checked my sources. just thought you should know

Yea but all they did is threaten it. They probably meant he had three days before they would file for the eviction. They're running a business and that requires a firm hand.

22, and when they figure it out, they have to cut a 1 cent check for op. My dad did that to someone when I was a kid. He paid upwards of 100 dollars in pennies. People were stupid and actually called the police. Of course the cop told them they were wasting his time and made them take the chest of not-as-nice-as-gold coins. Dad purposefully overpayed by 5 cents. It's been nearly 20 years and still no check. Tsk tsk.

This is hardly shocking. The DC real estate is crazy. When I left a couple years ago there was a waiting list for my place. They don't care how much you owe, they just care that you do and maybe the next tenant wouldn't. Consider yourself lucky that you didn't have to buy a cashiers check to pay that balance.

I would write home and tell Mother about this but they want $6.25 for postage.
