Rent sucks, and we’re not talking about the musical (at least not in this article). Who demands rent? Landlords. Who doesn’t fix your stuff? Landlords. Who thinks that passive income should be more than the actual income from real jobs? Republicans. Also, landlords.

“The worst part about having a landlord is having to call the landlord ‘landlord.’ It’s a bit of an exaggerated title, isn’t it? For a guy who rents out rooms to strangers for money?
