The saga between me and my landlord continues. I was woke up this morning by the landlord’s secretary handing me yet another eviction notice. This time, it was non-cigarette receptical related – it had more to do with the fact that the check I gave him for June’s rent had a stop payment placed on it.

It’s a convoluted story as to why it all happenned, but I think I can break it down pretty simply. Last week, he taped an eviction notice to my door because he was unhappy with my cigarette receptical. As soon as I recieved it, I placed a stop payment on the rent check, then I called him up to clear up the matter.

I then wrote another check for him, but due to the fact that I am busy, and often times forgetful, I never mailed it until I got a notice taped to my door assigning late fees. I wrote him a kind but firm letter explaining why I stopped payment on the check, and informing him that I had no intention of paying the ‘harassment fees’ in addition to my rent.

This morning, of course, I’m served by the eviction notice papers – I explained myself again. I’m trying to decide whether I need legal representation, or if I can handle this.

One thing is for certain – I’m due to have another hilarious phone call with my landlord soon. Keep your ears peeled for that!
