The Latest Gossip

I'd forgotten all about this until my landlady called me tonight. About a month ago, my neighbor told my landlady that she was looking to buy a house and had a realtor helping her. My landlady asked the neighbor if she had a loan pre-approval yet. The neighbor replied: "Oh, am I supposed to have that?" In telling me this story a month ago, the landlady said to me: "How's she supposed to know how much she can spend if she doesn't have a pre-approval?" Yeah. Duh.

Fast forward to tonight. The landlady called me about the two big tree limbs that were in the backyard. I had told her on Monday two huge limbs fell out of the next house over's tree which hangs over my yard. Anywho... after that little chat, the landlady goes on to tell me that the neighbor told her that she still plans to be out by Sept and that now she's working on getting pre-approval and still working with a realtor (How's that for a run-on sentence? LOL). So I say to myself: "Self, how long did it take you to get pre-approval?" Self answers back: "Ummm... about 4 days." Bottom line, neighbor should already have pre-approval by now.

With that said, during the phone conversation with my landlady I kept thinking to myself "You should tell her! You should tell her!", but I just couldn't do it. I'll have to write a letter. I'm such a chicken...

Bad girl, you really should have taken that opportunity to let your landlord know that you found a house. I'm sure she'll be happy for you! And that discussion was the perfect segue. Aren't you going to be so relieved to get away from those screwy neighbors?

You crack me up sometimes! I'm a bit of a chicken too, but just be honest about it in a letter. That way she has written notice, but you want to give her time to start prepping for another tenant without too mushc loss of income.

Just let her know that you will no longer be complaining about things that the neighbor does, since they will no longer BE your neighbor...as of whatever date...

Please give her as much notice as you can...

Interesting contest. I haven't a clue as to what the picture is. I'm curious to see what stories you get on this.
