When a tenant calls and says “Hi, how’s it going?” you know that something is drastically wrong.

Murphys Law 8

When a tenant claims to “love gardening” it means that they are fond of gardens found in books, movies and maybe the Sahara desert but not your particular rental property.

This is funny

This shows a great example that one must do their background checks on possible tenants. Just simply inviting a tenant to fill out a rental application will not be enough. Understand who you are dealing with on a deeper level.
