68 - Technically you are right. But, some titles nowadays are used as unisex terms. I'm not sure if landlord/landlady is one of them. I do know that certain nicknames, like "guys" and "dudes", are now often used to refer to both genders. So in the grand scheme, I don't think it would really matter.

its more likely that she just doesnt want to claim the rental income on her taxes, if a cheque bounces its no different than not paying her the cash in the grand scheme of things, but if she gets the rent in cash she doesn't have to claim it. OP should ask for a receipt.

49 - My first thought was receipt, as well. If OP pays in cash, there's no record of payments received and the landlord can take OP to court claiming they didn't pay rent.

I'd be worried if he asked me to pay in cash. Why didn't he ask for a money order or a cashier check? Don't forget to ask for and keep all receipts of payments.

The landlord is being sketchy.....I like to have a paper trail as proof I've paid something. Cash leaves no trail. I'd definitely require a signed and dated receipt!

She's not being cautious by the context of this fml. She singling out an individual by how she perceives him. It would be a different story if she made it a blanket policy. Not just for those who look suspicious to her. So yes it is that bad you dick cheese.

An individual or business is not required to take a payment in coins above the value of a roll of that coins. The landlord would only have to accept 50 pennies.

Exactly. Last time I paid in cash, the bastard skipped town when the building got taken over by someone else and I had no record of payment. Yes, I was too stupid to ask for a receipt. Lesson learned. I always pay by check AND ask for a receipt. Tell your landlord that, unless everyone else is paying by cash, she can't force you to pay in cash. Site some bogus legal precedent and tell her you work as a paralegal.
