~That Was A Nice Compliment!~

Our landlord just came by to finally get the rent money that we had for days now. Lol. When he got here I asked if everything was okay. He said he was just really busy with so many things going on lately. He also told me that he knew we had the money so he placed his focus on the people that were dodging his calls and trying not to pay. He said that he trusts us enough to not have to run right over here to get the rent. Well that was a nice compliment. Glad he trusts us and knows we will pay. I am feeling grateful for the compliment today. =)

I am impressed that he stops by to pick it up. In the last 12 years, I have had 3 landlords. I'm expected to get the rent to them, not the other way around.

@CoralLevang Yeah he made that arrangement from the beginning. This is the first landlord that we have had who does this.

@LovingMyBabies I wish mine would do that. I usually have the made out but I did pack them up on my board and then forget about them until the 5th

I can imagine the headaches he has trying to collect rents each month. He is probably very happy to have you as tenants. A compliment is always welcomed.

That was very nice of him. Most men are narcissists and don't think of other folks.

@LovingMyBabies Thanks Jen. She's real sweet. The one I had before her, due to a management change, was real nice, too. You're welcome.

That was so nice of him. Nice landlords like that are hard to come by. I had a landlord who was super mean and always snapped at me whenever he came to take the rent. I always paid on time, but he was always really mean. I couldn't put up with his attitude anymore and moved to a different apartment a few months later.

@zarlamain He is the first landlord that we have had that we really like. Most of the ones we have had in the past were mean like the one your talking about. That makes things hard all around.

@LovingMyBabies I have a decent landlord right now compared to the mean one I had in the past. However, we are not very close and simply have a business relationship. He lives in the same apartment building and is really humble though.

How nice! I can imagine how it made you feel. So many people think nothing of not paying the rent, or not paying on time.

@LovingMyBabies There are landlords and then there are landlords. When I lived in Hawaii it was in an 8 unit apartment building - two levels - all military people. My neighbor and I had husbands who worked the same shifts and the landlord used to bring us dinner on the days they worked the evening shift. He said why cook - LOL! He used to throw two parties a year for us - he did all the cooking and provided everything - they were Japanese. He worked at Dole and every morning we had a fresh pineapple on our door step. He was a real nice landlord.
