I am a Landlord and a Tenant

Being a landlord makes me a worse tenant, being a tenant makes me a better landlord.

I hate renting. I hate handing someone else money to get literally nothing in return.

“Oh but it’s a place to live!”

Motherfucker, “place to live” is some goddamn hierarchy of needs shit, not a bonus reserved for the “special”. Even without getting into the complete lack of investment most landlords make in their property, what right do they have to determine who gets to live in a building and who has to sleep on the streets?
