Landlordism...

I am not an Atheist.I hate landlordism.

L-A-N-D-L-O-R-D-I-S-M.
H-A-T-E.

Anyone of you who has stayed off your house has must ave been through the gatekeepers of this faith.The demigods themselves, who, whether asked of, or not, decide to pay you a visit; irrespective of the faith you hold in them. Or much rather not hold in them.

My mom and brother are over.The guy (oh sorry, did I hurt your feelings Mr Landlord?GLAD IF I DID!!) decides to keep a watch on my movements.

8:30 (evening) :walking home from office, scraping actually.Landlord Standing.
9:15 (morning) :going to office with tomato-red eyes.Landlord Standing.
10:15 (night-time):strolling with brother.Landlord Standing.

8:45(morn tooth brush time): mom opens door expecting the friendly neighbourhood garbage guy.Voila!!!LANDLORD STANDING!!!

I went in to check up on his morning proceeds to my abode and heres what he tells me "tumhara bijlee meter...kuch gadbad hai".
Cool.Agreed.Getting late for office.Bye.
While leaving, "beta...tumhari family se koi hai??Acha beta rent..."

I cut him short "kuch din mein chale jayenge.Bhai ka admission hai DU mein."
I disappear.Out of sight, out of mind.Out of earshot too.

I win.:)

Laters.

Some people are just too suspicious about everything.... and when they don't have anything else to do they might as well keep a track of whats going around.... irritating... but then probably nothing much can be done...

Anindita said...

The nosy pokie kinda fellow!! It is a shame he won't leave you alone.

Unfortunately, you can do nothing because he is the L-A-N-D-L-O-R-D!

H-A-T-E!

Peace.

Lol!!
I once had one who'd come and knock the door well past midnight if we were a bit louder than usual. Used to freak us out.

Nomad said...

Whoa! Do not complain, try living in a hostel with a Matron.
Can you go for a night stroll?
Can you go smoke?
Can you order in food?
Can you get friends over?

I cannot.

Passionate said...

Akshay:O yes...what a cruel lil world we live in!!:(

Scribblers Inc said...

trooper:He is a lil meanie, but besides the dough, he doesnt mind me much...am lucky on that count!!:)

Scribblers Inc said...

S: O I would have loved to hate his guts out, but then...he is a lesser of the evils I have been through.Gosh, I sound like such a sad pessimist!!:(

P.S.-English Hons is what I meant.Your brains arent much under control when you are under the influence of office work.I try my best to maintain coherence though!!:)

Scribblers Inc said...

Neha:Thanks a ton for linking me...but you would have to explain me the exact phraseology of the term "linked you" the next time.Do you mean put on the blog roll??Dint find that one...Thanks for the comment!!:)

Scribblers Inc said...

Anindita:People do get a lil like that when they have problems both in head and the bed!!!:P

Divita said...

you know i believe people stick their noses into other people's business only to make sure they are living just the way life should be lived. what they dont understand is that life can be lived in anyway. they just dont want to stand apart. hope you give your landlord a good lesson. i'd say stick a finger into your nose when he comes next time. trust me, this act would shoo him off! ;)

Scribblers Inc said...

Macademia:I had a problem once when my landlord was a dragon...used to wake his son up and send him over!!!

Scribblers Inc said...

Nomad:
Point1:I can go for a night stroll but the guard gives you the stares as if you are a gigolo.
Point2:I dont smoke.
Point3:Most of Delhi doesnt have late nite food.
Point4:Yes I can get friends over.

Moral:I win 1-0 but then I have my own predicaments.Thanks for the revelations tho!!:)

Scribblers Inc said...

passionate:food for thought brother...only time will tell!!

Scribblers Inc said...

Swayam:Welcome back...the only way out would be to pull a "Texas Chainsaw Massacre".But that I guess happens only in movies...:(

Scribblers Inc said...

divita:I caught him with a gob of cream all over his face at the saloon downstairs...It would probably take the "Scream" weirdos to shoo him away if anything!!:(

Tairebabs said...

Vartika said...

Preeti said...

Lol! Luckily I haven't had to deal with landlords...Even when I lived alone, thankfully it was at our own place...But I've been a landlord to my tenants above...I'd even go hungry than ask them for their rent! :D
