A certain Wisconsin landlord has found himself in a bit of a quandary recently.
The man, who posted on a Landlord Protection Agency forum under the name Carl, said that he unknowingly rented his Green Bay house out to Chicago Bears fans. And he is so "pissed" that he wants to know if he can evict the family. He writes that we would rather take a loss on the property than rent it to Bears fans.
Here is the meat of the post:
I own a home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. My job took me down Lake Michigan a ways towards Milwaukee, but I do plan on living back in Green Bay when I retire in a few years, so I am renting the place out as I do not want to sell it. As you can imagine, people are VERY fanatic about the Green Bay Packers there. My new tenants lied to me on my application and are actually Chicago Bears fans! They have made this known by putting out Bears crap all over the front lawn (flags, lawn gnomes, placemats, etc.). This has pissed off my neighbors something fierce as they do not want to live next to such blowhards.
First of all, it's amazing that an application actually asked whether the prospective renters were Packers fans. And also, it's got to take some nerve by these Bears fans to lie on an application, relocate to Green Bay and then decorate their house with Bears gear.
In fact, this makes one question whether the post is real at all. But if it's not legitimate, at least we all got a good laugh out of it.
