    If this doesn’t say it all, I don’t know what will. If you are anyone who has ever rented, you will have a flash back no doubt.

    Thanks, that was cute!

    So true! I rent in southern CA and we also had to promise our firstborn child, just in case.

    Lucid — tortured flashback I’m sure

    Jenna — yes, my son will be the owner’s servant for the first few months also…

    Luisa–I would Manhattan would be quite a challenge. I always thought it would be so romantic to live in Manhattan…

    Oh yeah, I remember that from college. My husband and I signed a lease once in Riverside, but then he got a job here in Spain, so we went to see the management about cancelling the lease. They agreed, and we thought everything was fixed. A few months later we started getting threatening phone calls here in Spain, saying we owed them 2 years’ rent. We were furious, because we specifically explained the situation before leaving, and got the management’s approval. Eventually they settled for less money, but it was a hassle and we still had to pay part. And to this day, I still don’t know how they got our phone number over here.

    Theresa — they tracked you down… of course in Spain you now have to have an aval to rent a house but we had a landlord that was wonderful and knew he could trust us. He said we were the best renters! I guess I could have him send a letter from Spain telling everyone that — only it would be in Spanish. They might not understand…I miss my chalet in Spain! 😦

    We lived in the Madrid area for 6 1/2 years and are still trying to adjust to the states — we moved to Ca a year in August.
