Friday Fives

1. What's your worst landlord story?

her name was Barbara, and she was evil. She was our landlord when we first moved to Denver. She was evil on, like, twelve different levels. She was so evil when we moved out we had legal counsel to deal with her. When you are making $7 an hour, getting a lawyer means some serious shit. I wish her nothing but hurt, because she profited of others misfortune. It got that bad. Her name is Barbara Hanson, she owns houses in the Capitol Hil area of central Denver.

2. What canceled tv show do you miss?

Greatest American Hero

3. Tells us a little about your home country. (Question stolen from an ESL study site. What fun this will be.)

Mine is a dark, grey, stormy place. It was once a great thriving economy, the gem of the Northeast. It was a hamlet named after the great magnificent American beast of the plains, the Bison. After the demamd for steel dropped, people began to realize that Buffalo was a miserable and cold place. Most of the wise folk imgrated West, leaving behind what are now known in local parlance as... my cousins. Now, I ain't talkin' shit about my cousins. I have the best family in history, any one of whom I would die for. It is just that... they live... in... Buffalo.

4. What are your top five traffic rants?

Do you mean 'what are my traffic pet pieves', or what do I scream at people? For the former, my biggest issue is people not using turn signals. Honestly man, even if you are turning into your driveway, use a signal. Even if you are in the clearly marked left hand lane, use a turn signal. If you are going to cut me off in traffic, at least warn me with a turn signal. It takes a brush of the pinky and maybe a tenth of a calorie. Even if you are on a dark country road in the middle of the night after the apocolypse and no one is left on earth... use a turn signal.

They say speed causes road rage, I profoundly disagree. I feel that 90% of road rage could be avoided if people simply signaled their intent. It really means that much to me. Of course, I have a bad history of aggressive driving and speeding tickets, so I ain't one to preach. As for the ladder, I am a lover and have nothing but love for my fellow commuters. Also, I live just a couple of minutes away from work. I encounter one stop light and one stop sign.

5. A person who does not like you and would have something to say, might say what?

being both fabulous looking, (and nearly faultless), I fear I have no gossip for you here friend. Maybe that I am too charismatic. Ok, ok... how about this. They might say, the bitter ones anyhow: drunken narcissistic phone monkey with a Napoleanic complex and a huge member

as almost always, the fives are presented bymy very good friend Roy.

Go Broncos!

Buffalo is northeast, from me... and almost everyone else in the country.

actually, i do agree with your opinion on the causes of road the place I used to live (Massachusetts), there is only a cutthroat sense of me first (by whatever means necessary), much finger-waving and no common courtesy...

Interesting. I am currently in a bind with Barbara Hansen. I signed a "paper" lease with her on Sunday of this week, found out my parents were in the hospital because of a car crash Tuesday night, flew home to Michigan. Called her on Wednesday to notify her of my situation and ask if my friend and I could somehow get out of the lease because I didn't know when I would be back to Denver. She said yes and that she would hold on to our security and NOT cash the checks. If she did she would call us to let us know. Today I go to the grocery store to get food and find that I can't because my card is declined. Soon after I get a call from my friend stating she called to talk to Barbara and that she cashed our checks for security. My parents are in the HOSPITAL in critical condition and this woman gave me her WORD she would let me know what was going on with the security and she would do what she could to help me out. She said so many different things and NEVER followed through with them. If you are reading this and going to rent from her DON'T do it. She also hangs up on you if you show any EMOTION. I can't believe this woman basically robbed me of $600.

Regarding Barbara Hansen the evil landlord... This lady is beyond evil, beyond a scumbag, and a criminal to say the least. She gets off on drama, makes up lies to excuse her wrong doings. Then pretends that she is a victim. My husband and I rented from this women a little over a year. My husband also did a lot of the electicial work on many of her properties. We not only paid our full deposit paid 1800.00 a month for rent for 1bedroom apt. Did many side jobs for her on her other properties as well as made many improvments upgrades on unit we were in. After she moved us to another one of her properties she wanted us to live and upgrade for her. Oir last place we upgrafed her rent went up from 1800. To 2400. Because we did do many improvents. She decided to kick us out of our new place because i had an altetcation with one of her other tenants that was dealing drugs in of her many properties. Barbara will take anyones money and she new these people were dealing meth, herorin, coke. However she kicked me my husband and our 4 yr old son out when she got all the work she wanted out of my husband. After my husband gave her her itemized bill for materials we spent for her properties and all of the countless hrs she bugged my husband to fix this fix that. Once the kob was complete she refused to pay him. Gave us our notice and never even gave us our deposit back. For services of 9,304.00 matierials and labor and another 1800.00 for our previous deposit. Then evicted us and left us homeless for 4 months. I resently asked her again for our deposit at very least and she wrote me a bogus list of late fees of 400. Every month for a year and said we owed her in late fees. My husband and i were forced to leave the state due to weather being homeless in the winter and fear we would take action forcefully to this evil women. We are established now back in San Diego getting back on our feet. But what she took from us out of pure evilness was not easy or deserved. I want to get back ehat she owes at the very least. Can anyone help
