A Weird Sense of Humor
I can see why the landlord doesn’t appreciate this nickname. Being friendly with your landlord is one thing, but calling them “baby” is just weird and demeaning. We want our landlords to treat us with respect, and we should treat them the same way. If our landlords would dare call us “baby” we’d find it wildly inappropriate!
It seems as if that’s not the only thing they don’t see eye to eye about. The tenant was trying to make a joke, but the landlord doesn’t find it funny. We feel like we own an apology to all landlords out there – this exchange proves that tenants can be just as annoying (and even more so) than landlords!
