I came, I saw, I was not selected....


The Spawn and I checked out the rental house this morning.

That was a waste of my time....

Cute little house, nice location, land lord is a 70 year old woman spent the majority of my time lecturing me on lawn care and "did I know I would be responsible for the upkeep."

"Have you ever run a lawn mower before?"

Yes, she did INDEED ask me that question.

"I was a homeowner for 17 years. I've cut grass on many, many occasions."

I could not hold back my sarcasm. We had *just* talked about my lack of rental history as I went from owning my home to renting this apartment that I currently live in.

Suddenly were two other applicants in the running again.

I will hear back from her.

Won't be holding my breath on that one..... I'm pretty sure she didn't think I could handle considering I'm a single mom and all.

I raised three , an alcoholic, and single handedly took care of a house for 17 years. I think I would have been just fine.

But, she was interested in my lawn care abilities.

On a good note - Boot Camp Boy has completed Crucible. He is now a United States Marine. I am SO proud of him.

Happy Saturday!

Sounds like this could be a fair housing issue.... If she's discriminating against you for being a single Mom.

Don't give up hope just yet.

You'll have to call your son "Marine Man" now.

Eh, she just sounded like she had a bad experience with a former tenant. You might still get picked. I hope you are selected, if that's what you want.

Elevate me...

The world will never run short of foolish people that ask stupid questions. I hope you can find a good place to rent from fair minded and honest people - I really would hate to have to rent again.

Yay....I KNEW he could do it! Swim week and all. lol Congratulations on your son, the Marine!
Maybe you should consider finding a house to buy. I heard that lenders are starting to consider rental history as part of the credit check process. They have finally caught onto the idea that if you consistently pay your rent on time, you'll likely pay your mortgage on time as well. Utility companies can also be a source of help with letters of credit for paying your bills on time.
Does Ms. 70 year old snob realize that you don't have to know how to run a lawn mower? Not every person with a lawn does their own mowing. Some pay for lawn care.

Hmmmm....I know I left that wand around here somewhere!

Wow, congrats to you and your son! πŸ‘

I think lawn care is an old person thing. My parents obsess about it, but since I'm their lawn expert, I do things my way. I suggested to them that they try the 'Arizona' look. You know; rocks and boulders and thistle and reeds and lots and lots of pebbles and sand and, ugh, you know β€” Arizona stuff.
Didn't fly.
So I cut the lawn short, and by mid-July (when the weather is hot and rain is rare), the grass stops growing; problem solved. I considered painting it green, one year. πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

So many great movies about the Marines out there; I'll be thinking of your son next time I see one., πŸ˜Šβ—
