One of the consequences of renting out rooms is that you will inevitably run into difficult people. Now, having said this, I must say that so far, my venture into landlording has had very few hitches. I did run into an odd situation last Friday night after work when I came home to find a key on the table and a note on the fridge announcing that one of my tenants had decided at the last minute to go back to Edmonton. No further explanation but he did leave a phone number and ask me to contact him. Which was a good thing since his beat up Volvo was still sitting in my driveway....sans license plates and with a flat tire.
Numerous calls (I've lost track of how many) throughout the past week got me nowhere. Generally I like to think I'm a pretty easy-going kinda guy, but I find my inner dragon slowly emerging. THERE'S A JUNKY VOLVO TAKING UP SPACE IN MY DRIVEWAY! I would have dealt with the matter yesterday but a major power outage the night before threw the city into a little chaos from what I've been hearing. So it looks like I'll be contacting the local RCMP to "vin" the vehicle and have it towed.
