Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.
Me: What black pen?
Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.
Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?
Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.
this almost made me cry
this is simultaenously the best and worst submission i’ve ever seen from Clients from Hell.
I feel ill
Hey tumblr! Did you know that if you suffer from depression / anxiety or any other mental illness, you can register your dog as an emotional support animal, making it illegal for a landlord to refuse to rent to you? That’s right. No breed restrictions, no weight restrictions, no matter what, they are not allowed to refuse.
This includes cats, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs, etc.!! Go here to register your pet as an ESA :~)
Hey, this is incredibly inaccurate. I actually have an ESA (that would be my awesome terrier, Rhiannon) but the actual process of getting her was a lot more involved than this post suggests.
The link involved is a for profit site— it should not cost anything to ‘register’ your pet as an ESA. Notice the ‘.com’ instead of ‘.org’ url— this is a BUSINESS preying on people with mental disabilities. Instead, what you need is a letter from a psychiatrist stating that you have a mental disability and the animal serves the expressed purpose of mitigating that disability. Here is a PDF that goes more into depth on the legal issues of ESAs and also includes a sample letter for your psychiatrist.
There are also some restrictions— your pet can be ruled an ‘undue burden’ on the property if it is particularly disruptive or destructive, and the landlord can then file for eviction. Also just because you have an ESA does not mean you won’t face discrimination from landlords in other ways— if you are apartment hunting, they can find other reasons to refuse you. The law may be on your side, but unless you want to face a protracted legal battle, it is much easier to abide by breed and weight restrictions. It’s not impossible but can be really difficult. For instance, I ran into a lot of problems when I was considering adopting a large Chow/Golden mix for the purpose on both the breed and weight restriction lines.
In sum, don’t trust for profit sites, and PLEASE make sure you do your legal research. You and your ESA will be much better off for it.
