Now after I am done with my last tenant I must say this. I loath a liar! This last tenant I had lied about everything. With every contact I had with this person there were lies imbedded within and it drove me crazy. I am talking brain damage because I guess I have not figured out how to rationally deal with a liar.
Latest lie to back up my vent. Wrote me an email inquiring if he should pay his final water bill. This email was written on the 4th. He claimed he had the bill that ended on the 5th. The last or previous bill ran through the 11th. Also the amount that he stated that was due was the amount for the bill ending 6-11. So its 99.9% a lie. There is the small chance that he did get a bill EARLY before the end date that is in the same amount? So he is likely lying for what reason? I am stupid? To cause me brain damage?
You can explain the reason for the lie is to save himself money. However is it unreasonable for me to expect better from people? Something about persistant liars who seem to lie about every little thing scares or better put worries me. It worries me in the sense of why would this person lie when they know I am going to know they are lying? If they know that I will know they are lying then thats just crazy! Okay now I sound crazy. : (
