Compulsive liar tenant stepped it up to a new level . This woman isnít your average liar, she is crazy. Every time I talk to her itís like I stepped into the Twighlight Zone. She needed an extra week to pay her rent, I agreed. She sometimes pays a few days late but always pays. Keeps the home spotless so I take the trade off. I just donít ever trust her because she is like one of those crazy eyed women on the Lifetime movies. You know, the ones that end up picking a chainsaw or ax as their weapon of choice. Anyway, she calls and wants to talk to me through her ď translatorĒ .... which is weird because we both speak English. So she starts speaking to translator in English and translator relays it to me in Spanish. I explain to to transltor that I speak English, like tenant . Poor translator was so confused. Tenant was trying to negotiate rent, I declined. In the end, tenant said they were moving out of state. Then they give me written notice that their new address is right around the corner from my rental. Iím confused but so relieved she is leaving. Iím not even going to argue about the short notice.

Did she show any signs of being nuts when she was looking to rent your place? Was there any sign during the screening process that raised any type of flag? Anyway, I'm so glad that she's leaving for another "state". I'm guessing that her new landlord didn't contact you for references?

I'm relieved for you, and best of luck on your next tenant. --73.93.xx.xx

Uh, I have THREE chainsaws, and keep an axe in my truck. Along with gloves, duck tape and a shovel. :)

Anybody wanna go exploring with me in the deep desert? There's nobody for miles and miles. It's as quiet as a graveyard... Bwahahaha!

Just be pleasant to her, nod, agree and wave as she leaves.

Did the translator charge her double. Once to translate to Spanish and a second time to translate back to English?

She passed screening fine. She even had a husband at the beginning of tenancy, he stepped off the crazy train already. New LL never called me but I doubt she gave him her real LLís info. --71.10.xxx.xxx

It's folly to diagnose at a distance but that behavior (odd remarks, stranger conversations, combined with fastidious housekeeping) reminds me of one I had, who was soon after diagnosed w/ bipolar episodes.

He underwent medical observation and then medications. Seemed to have solved the nasty language and constant F-bombs, but the fastidious housekeeping remained.

My view changed to not make fun of people with probable mental issues but to see them as any other chronic medical condition needing specialized medical attention, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, etc. --174.21.xxx.xx

I have not defriended my out of state tenant that left a few months ago, as I have been mesmerized by her "crazy" from a distance. After asking me if I'd be willing to give them a reference so they could get out of the junk RV they are living in, (cause they are freezing), I didn't respond (cause if you can't say something nice, don't say anything).

They must have moved in with family or friends cause the other morning I guess she was trying to garner sympathy from everyone so she was bemoaning the fact that her plants must have frozen in that RV. She named each one off and said where she got it and how long that she'd had it. I was SOOO tempted to say, Oh did you conveniently forget that you left them at our rental, along with tons of other crap? But, I let it go, cause you definitely can't fix crazy! --71.219.xx.xxx
