My wife gets frozen out all the time as these southern girls like it about 68 degrees in the building. Just amazing that the northeners can't take the cold and they can't take the heat. I tell them I am still absorbing heat to make up for 52 years in coastal Maine.
Tenants generally suck, and they will suck the life out of you anyway the can. Even the good ones. It is human nature I guess.
Ha! Too true; when I lived in North Carolina I used to just bask in the heat. The Southerners can't take it. They are addicted to air conditioning.
And yes, tenants do suck the life out of you. Read a quote from Flannery O'Connor "my papa was a real estate man and my mother owns a couple of apartment houses and we've been driven crazy by renters for years." I don't mind the landlord thing much; it's a job like any other. I screen the heck out of people and have gotten a lot better at laying down the law in a diplomatic tone; a dance of staying polite and respectful while demanding that they respect my rules and take care of my property and pay on time.
