Here’s one for you: I’ve found out that here in Texas, atleast this part I’m in, are dealin’ in death.
The other day, I was sittin’ on my lil patio mindin’ my own, when I see the leasing office guy ride up on the golf cart they jet around the complex in, and get off at the apartment below me. He’s lookin’ all official, so I paid attention.
He used his key and went into the apartment. He was in there messin’ around for about 5-10 minutes. When he came out, he was carryin’ this man’s flat screen, and loaded onto the cart! While I’m takin’ all this in, he goes back in and comes back out with the computer and two DVD players.
So I ask the lil twerp ( he is a twerp; he has “little man” issues) what was up. This is what he told me: “If the tenant falls far enough behind on rent, we are able to confiscate property equal to the value of monies owed and hold said property in lien till aforesaid monies are tendered or items are sold to cover the outstanding obligation.”
Just like that, with his official ass. And proceeded to go back in and removed the rest of this man’s electronics, movies and CD’s, a jacket and some shoes! Then the smart ass twerp with the lil man issues told me to check my lease.
And put a boot on the door.
I did check my lease, and yep, it’s there. This is some Texas shyt. Nobody in Cali, where I’m from, is goin’ for this! Do you know how many caps would bust over this? O.M.G.
So I’m askin’ the masses; Have you ever heard of this as a legal form of collecting rent? Is this somethin’ they doin’ in your town and if so (dayumm!) where do you live?
I think this is so bizarre. Fortunately for me I’m one of those who pays her rent, on time and in full. Sometimes early. But this shyt here would definitely make me mend my ways if I wasn’t. I would be one of those who’d go twirlin’ up on that office goin’ off, and end up in jail.
