Today, my apartment was robbed by my landlord. Her logic? "I own the building, and therefore everything in it." That TV cost more than my rent. FML

This is mine. we did call the cops. we have to prove its our tv so now we have to find the receipt from 2 years ago. her whole family is into illegal shit. her son got arrested recently for forging the mayors signature. we intend on moving as soon as we find an available apartment.

Call the cops, man. That ain't legal.

Start stealing from her suite. When she confronts you, say it's not stolen because it's still in "her" building.

Looks like you're gonna need a new place to live soon.

Call the 5-0. She'll have to return everything or pay restitution. That's illegal.


No. 21. For a second I thought you said that she would have to pay with prostitution

Ha restitution? My so called "friend" stole my iPod 3 years ago, we went to court over it, and i have yet to see any restitution. The only way it got replaced was me going out and paying for it.

Cops is filmed in front of a live studio audience!

If OP didn't do that before posting on here then YDI

No. 47 Wow, what a waste of the courts time. That probably cost the tax payers 20 iPods.

You went to court over an iPod?? That's pathetic dude you don't deserve restitution for that

BeaterOfTheDrums 15

When 800$ is stolen(300$ iPod, 500+ songs) from me, he should pay it back.

Unless you signed a contract allowing him too it's illegal because when you rent, the rent basically means it your property temporarily

103-The songs in your iPod should still be in your computer so you didn't lose that $500.

BeaterOfTheDrums 15

Nope he took it before I could back any of it up.

Get some balls and get your shit back. It shouldn't be too hard to fight that in court.

KiddNYC1O 20

Should've backed it up! YDI. =P

ITunes holds a record of every purchase on your account, you can't purchase without an account, none of it was lost at all.

47. There's a difference between petty theft and felony theft. This is definitely felony theft.

1- when I read this I read it in a Samuel l Jackson voice. And I threw some "mutha ******'s" in there for good measure.

104, when op says "her logic..." that generally means that its a her not a him.

Call the cops then sue the bitch.

Sounds like your average slumlord. I've rented many houses, and something like this has never happened to me.. Not yet anyways. It's illegal to go into the house without permission, and it's illegal to take what's not rightfully yours. Every time I've rented, I've contacted my landlord and informed them that the locks will be changed, and when my contract is up they can have the new key. They can only claim what is added on to the house or apartment itself, not what is inside. OP, you really need to fight this.

You actually went to court over a ******* ipod!

First, bad friend...second, waste of time and money....third, bad friend again dude.

I think the person is lying.

Hear hear. Nick Fury'll get your stuff back. No worries!

#235 I think that part of the conversation is already over.

the songs weren't stolen you still have them

271 you clearly didn't read any of the other comments, he didn't get a chance to back it up.

Lct1196 31

You do realize that his "friend" would have to pay the fee, not the government...

#275, you don't have to back it up itunes and Google play have a record of every thing you have bought or loaded onto your iPod , even songs that are from a cd

Wow FYL thats terrible op.

OPs landlord is either: 1). A bitch or 2). Just really, really stupid.

no shit thats terrible. why would you even comment.

Why even comment if you're just gonna bitch at someone for no reason and not even say anything relevant to the fml? But yeah, I really don't get how someone could possibly have the mindset of OP's landlord. It's pretty much common sense that you can't just take someone's things. Ever.

32, 33 - Wow, calm down. Would you have preferred for him to say something like: "omgz i'm totezz first", or at least a little sympathy?

Hmmm. Time to call the fuzz, 5-0, cops, police. Call some form of law enforcement. Get your tv back, get her to go to jail for felony theft. I hope you did this the second you found out she took your tv

Sounds like somebody forgot to take their meds this morning.

She probably fell down the stairs in the morning to.

MichellinMan 20

or maybe she got dropped on her head as a child.

I don't know, it seems pretty logical to me :D your kids live in my apartment? I get to use them as slaves muahahah

I would get so mad, first I would move my stuff out into a truck I would rent. second I would splatter paint everything and make it look ugly as ****. Third, I would leave, and never go back.

Fourth you'd lose your Security Deposit, and fifth you'd probably not get that TV back.

Steal in back and switch it with a fake one?

Sounds like a plan, Sherlock. You've obviously put so much thought in it!

KiddNYC1O 20

I'd change the locks and add multiple ones. First I'd take legal action.

I love it when a plan comes together

Generally switching locks or adding any in an apartment complex will cause you to become defect of your agreement and you can therefore be evicted. Not so smart. Look over the lease agreement, see if it says anything about security of your belongings and then call the police. She will have one hell of a court hearing if all she has for reasoning is "It was in my building, so I own it." because technically you are temporarily buying the place, and therefore you own that section, not her.

Off topic, but I love your profile pic and Happy Birthday!

If she owns everything in the building, wouldnt that mean she owns you? No. Some people make no sense...

ONExLOVE_fml 4

True...some people really make no sense...including you.

EveryTHING. Not everyONE. Agreed that the landlord is a bit touched in the head, though.

...nice to see you have your priorities in check.O.o

Really? Just because they have a nice tv doesn't mean they're not paying rent

Some people would rather rent than to own. That has nothing to do with priorities.

YeaSo3 14

I think they are trying to say instead of posting an fml they should be filing a report with the police

shouldve read the contract closer

Call the cops on your landlord and get your stuff back

It's okay! It's not stealing, it's borrowing without permission!

RandomComments 6

So theoretically, she just moved the TV from one room to another

Dang so many thumbs down. Come on, I wasn't serious, it was sarcasm towards her logic! xD
