    i dont like landlords

    i am putting the landlord in the wall o shame. i found four cracks like this one between two luxaire's in a rental house. landlord said i was trying to "f*** him over" & "its not that bad, give me a break". he also said i should put some furnace cement on it and it will be ok until next season. i should have known not to go there when he called and said he needs a rental inspection but " theres nothing wrong with them, i know because i used to sell furnaces". oh yeah he was almost 90 yrs old and the furnaces where installed in 1978.

    'I used to sell furnaces.'
    "Oh, so your the king of slepping?"

    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I'd have called the local fire department on that guy. Cracks in heat exchangers don't float around here with slum lords.

    Tenants are dime a dozen, so why spend on safety, just slap some furnace cement in the hole.

    I don't carry furnace cement. I suppose I could mix up some epoxy and asbestos. That should work.

    well i guess he did install new equipment. i saw another company at his house the other day. guess i didnt get the job. i should have known i wouldnt get it when he called me an ass when i asked him if he passed his contractors test yet.

    im surprised at the company he went with, they are a big company that charges big $$. at least the tenants are safe.

    Maybe that big company was there with a big wad of furnace cement.
