One of my clients, Jeff Preston, emailed a summary of the top 10 reasons why his tenants paid their rent late in 2009. They’re pretty funny. Here they are:
#10. “My work cut my hours”
#9. “May pay week is off this month”
#8. “I’ve been really sick this past week”
#7. “The bank mailed the check to the wrong address”
#6. “My daughter got married and I had to pay for the wedding”
#5. “My brother passed away”
#4. “My car was stolen”
#3. “My nephew was shot in the head and we had to pull the plug on him this past weekend”
#2. “Someone hit me across both knees with a baseball bat at work and I’ve been in the hospital”
#1. “I fell over a wheelchair at work and hit my head. I was in a coma the last few days.”
I absolutely love #2! I have wonder where the tenant works?
Do you have any funny reasons to add to the list? If so, add them in the comments section!
