Disturbed Artist, unfortunately, the art of penning a letter has died out in the last 15 years, so it’s very possible that this letter is not only genuine, but the author actually considers it to be a professional communiqué. Let’s be honest; rental property managers aren’t necessarily the cream of the crop, are they (sorry # 6, but it’s true).
It’s also possible that the letter’s as fake as unicorn shit, but who’s to say?
Bacchante has a great point. I’ve had “professional” emails sent to me with all sorts of strange wording. Usually people who think they’re intelligent trying to us “big words” but using them incorrectly. It’s very possible this is real. Also, notice the crease marks on the letter to show it was folded. If this was a scam by someone who works in the management office, they went a long way to fake it (creases and all).
This isn’t funny, really And everybody who happened to live next to such people knows it. Anyway, guys, if she “moans or cries” too loud, she fakes it. There’s no way a really pleased girl would have the power to scream sooo loud. Unless the walls are made of paper Porn emulation, nothing more.
On the other hand I had one room in college where there were these two girls on the other side of the wall who were hypersensitive to ANY noise I made. All me and my friends had to do was just walk into the room or something, not even talking really, and they would be knocking on the door telling us to be quiet. People are going to make some noise, if you don’t like it get a house.
“Be that as it may, It would…” As always, a seemingly intelligent individual writes a note to someone he believes is “beneath” him and assumes he is perfect in every way. What everyone has failed to notice is that he used an uppercase i after a comma in a compound sentence. Now I ask you, who is the real idiot here, the guy getting laid or the guy with the I-D-10-T affliction?
Baccante, you’re right. Now that I think about it, the last few actual letters I’ve gotten (thank you notes, that kind of thing) have been kind of off. To be honest, I was just amazed to get something in the mail, instead of an email.
And Flames? Why do you even try? You always, and I do mean always, end up sounding like a retarded chimp. No wait, that’s insulting the chimp…
The phraseology in the letter is affected, yes, but that doesn’t mean it is fake. The author is just overcompensating for the silliness of the subject matter with his wording and style. Again, doesn’t mean it is a fake letter.
As funny as the letter is, real or otherwise, I must say I find it rather entertaining reading the comments, seeing people with at least reasonable intelligence arguing with people who seem like they couldn’t spell IQ
To be honest, I try to keep my correspondence with my tenants as professional as possible, usually citing the portions of the lease of which they’re in violation. However, I have seen letters from my predecessors written exactly like this.
Sadly, Bacchante is correct – the art of written communication, professional or otherwise, is dying.
beatus, you’re a bad man… Although strangely enough, italics seemed to help the meaning of Flames’ rants enter my brain with less effort and headache-inducing concentration yesterday. It’s almost like the fancier text charmed its way into my cognisance.
sockmonkeyboxinggloves (great imagery in your user name, by the way), you sound overqualified to work in the real estate industry (at least in Australia), or to be in any type of management role. You give me hope for the future though. Bless.
Have them do it right out on the balcony, Capn, or maybe have Sexy Stud push Kinky Kelly face-first against your largest window while he satisfies her for all to see. See what kind of letter you get for that.
I once got told off by a landlord because the neighbours had complained about the loud aggressive sex noises (like Chewbacca with whopping cough) coming from our house.. I’ve since moved out of mums’ and got a place of my own.
