I'm actually at a loss of words on this one, but here goes.... I was complaining a while back i was forced into a lease, even in the summer when i could not afford to pay rent. Well that got solved, i let my friend move in for me during the summer so he's paying the rent for the summer months, that problem is solved. New problem........aparently the landlord showed up the other day, and according to my friend he was being a total A-hole. My friend was at class, but one of my other friends was up there spending the night because he was moving out of his old apartment and needed a place to crash, and i guess when the landlord showed up he was harassing him and accusing him of staying there for free as a sort of "free lease". Keep in mind i'm home for the summer, so i have no part of this. The worst part..... When the landlord showed up, he saw my permament roomates drum set in the living room and simply said "no drums allowed, it will bug the person downstairs", or something along these lines. So my roomate gave in and took down his drums. I just heard about all this happening tonight and i can't even begin to say how Bull**** this whole thing is. I took it upon myself to read over the lease agreement, and nowhere did it say "drums are not allowed", as a matter of fact it didn't say anything about disturbing noises. I also must add how bad i feel for my roomate. He loves drumming, it's his hobby. This is the first year he's moving away from home, he was very much looking foward to finally moving out, and being able to play more often without getting yelled at my his parents. Try to imagin you people move into an apartment, and the landlord shows up one day and says "no bass playing allowed". The thing is, when i move up there this fall, i will not give in so easily as my roomate did. Playing bass is very important to me, as it is to you guys as well. If this guy trys telling me i cannot play my bass then there is going to be trouble. I also feel kind of bummed because i was very much looking foward to living with someone i can jam with and have some fun, and now aparently we can't do that. But like i said, nowhere in the lease it says he can't have drums, so this is what i'm going to try and explain to my roomate. Sorry for the rambling. What do you people think about this?
