Yesterday I had a pleasant conversation with a mother over the phone about her son getting a late fee on his rent. I gave every answer I could to this mother and she would not accept that her BABY who is the smartest child in the world would be in the wrong with this situation.
Well lady...I hate to break it to you but according to the MD state landlord/tenant law book you and you baby are completely wrong in this situation...even though you claim you are a landlord and what we are doing is illegal. Well let me tell you lady...apparently everyone I talk to on a daily basis is a landlord and you are all the experts...not me and my rulebook I follow! Can you tell I am not a customer is always right type of person?
By then end of the conversation I told her we will agree to disagree and we will giver her son the answer when a decision is made, not you because you are not the co-signor...and remember you are a landlord so you should understand the laws!
So to bring this post back to my original thought...my problem isn't necessarily with the mom...who does need to cut the cord...but with the son. If you are old enough to go to college, and to live in an apartment without mommy and daddy, then you are old enough to fight your own battles. I really hope this kids is not an education major, because if he is I would like his information because I will not let my son be taught by a BABY that cannot fight his own battles! My baby will learn to fight his own and accept the consequences of his actions.
Ok...vent over! Have a great Wednesday!
