    weird experience ...

    Advertisements



    A student girl looking 4 a place to rent with 2 dogs called me over the phone asking the regular infos then the number of the unit and where the place was located within the residence...

    I found it kinda weird, especially since she called me several times under different names. Some of you may find this normal, I don't. I may have overreacted, but then again... the commentators did too. I don't think I'm a pet hater, but 2 pets kinda scared me.

    Thank you for your vigilance. If not for your warning, some unfortunate islander might have been cheated by a student!!

    Indeed thank you, surely no one should be contacted directly nor inquire about the location of the place they are looking to rent out, that is just ludicrous! Also thank you for explaining to us that dogs don't attend school and bark, we were not smart enough to figure that out. Darn students don't understand how big of favor you are giving them by letting them pay you outrageous rent for your crappy place....Since your most likely too stupid to get the sarcasm, I'm saying your an IDIOT!

    Firstly, I am that student girl looking for an apartment. AND YOU should be ASHAMED of yourself for posting something so ludicrous on this site. I did NOT use a false name, called because I got the phone number OFF OF THIS WEBSITE, gave you my personal phone number and simply asked if the landlord allowed dogs because I have 2. So HOW someone is being CHEATED here by a student is BEYOND me! I was honest and even called to double check about a time to view the apartment. The reason I asked what apartment # it was is because some of my friends LIVE THERE and they asked ME which apartment it was in order to know if we would be living in the same building. SO SHAME ON YOU FOR GIVING STUDENTS A BAD NAME or STUDENTS WITH DOGS A BAD NAME. Students are humans, some study at home and have dogs. Does that mean a landlord has to allow dogs? Certainly not. Can a student who has dogs find a place to live being up front and HONEST about rescuing 2 island dogs? Certainly...JUST NOT WITH YOU!

    Thank you for the warning

    Wow, I never thought this would happen in this island.

    I always thought the school had a separate program for dogs, so they had back to back classes while their owners were busy attending theirs. And the adopted dogs also get a scholarship ?

    Damn students, how dare they call you DIRECTLY to your number.. Mustve been punishable in some countries..

    And oh, great grammar BTW.. Keep posting, its nice to have a laugh once in a while..

    Why would this student have any reason to lie?? Today, tomorrow either way you would find out??? Having two big dogs, I doubt that she would keep this a secret!! You honestly need to respect the fact that students are people as well. . Some come with their other half's while other's come alone. . You obviously do not own a pet and do not realize how much these creatures change your life!!
    By the way if it wasn't for this school/students, I highly doubt you would be renting for a long term lease!!

    By the way, have you ever thought about allowing dogs and maybe taking a SECURITY DEPOSIT???? Hmmmmm. . . That might solve your irrational thinking. .

    P.S. Just because its a big dog does not mean they bark and chew on things!

    P.S.S. All this money we pay and still not happy????

    original post

    Here is the original post... As you can see the ad clearly left her phone number. Also I was with Katie when she made the call and I can assure everyone that she acted as sweet as she always is...

    Six (or valerie, or whoever you are)- I believe you made an error in judgement. If I were you, I would take this thread down immediately. Katie is nothing but a great girl.

    For everyone's enjoyment...

    Since OP might change their mind after this thread I was also looking for a place with my dog. He is pretty quiet during the day when I am at class and won't cause any damage to your property.

    Here is a pic of him:




    Let me know if you are interested
