I’m going to bitch about a thing for a sec.
I am SO annoyed re this one apartment I am trying to rent.
Okay, so last tuesday I drove up to look at a different place first, and this apartment second. I had asked the woman if she could send me the application before I came up, so I could have it filled out. She didn’t, but, okay, not the end of the world.
I saw it, liked it, and she gave me an application. I said I’d have Mike and I fill it out, and I’d scan it and email it back to her the next day. I also had brought with me a check and printed copies of both my own and Mike’s last two pay stubs.
So I fill out the applications, go to my grandparents and use their scanner (because who fucking has a scanner), and email them back the next day.
On Sunday, she emails me asking me to fill out a form approving a credit check, and scan a copy of my license.
Ooookay, I’ll go back to my grandparents and do that. I print it, fill it out, scan both things, and email them back.
Yesterday she emails me, asking me to call her. She says since Mike makes more money, he’d be the primary one on the lease, and so what she really needs is HIS license and form.
Are you fucking kidding me??
So, we do that and I email it to her this morning.
I just got an email from her saying that we don’t qualify based on income, which has to be 3x the amount of rent.
Which is really fucking odd because Mike makes 5,000 a month, so not including mine, that is well over the income requirements. The apartment is 1,200 a month. Math.
So I call her and tell her this, and she says she thought he only made 2,500. MOTHERFUCKER that is the amount PER PAYCHECK. Of which we both make TWO a month. That’s why I gave you the last TWO paychecks. They have dates on them. And he put his yearly salary on the application. Are you actually a moron and are you fucking kidding me??
So now she apparently has to go back to the management company she is working through, blah blah blah.
If it wasn’t in such a good area and if there was ANYTHING else good in our price range available I’d say fuck it, you are an actual idiot and I don’t want to rent from you.
