People Are Sharing Their Landlord Horror Stories And They're Super Weird

We'd all love to own our own home, but for many people, renting isn't exactly a choice. With mortgage deposits out of reach for a lot of us, it's often the only option - and it can be an absolute nightmare.

From passive aggressive housemates to unreasonable landlords, it can be a minefield out there. But if you thought you were alone in your own awful experiences of renting, here's some interesting reading - people have been sharing their experiences on Twitter.

It all began when one Dublin bloke shared a bizarre message he received from his landlord, in which the tenant was told not to cook meals in the kitchen, because apparently that's not what it's there for. Well, of course. Sounds reasonable.

The rambling and slightly weird message reads: "Please do not cook a big meal in the kitchen, because of steam alarm went on many times."

Sure, no one likes alarms, but in that case what's the kitchen there for? The answer appeared later in the message: "Kitchen just to eat and warm the food. Basically this is a dining area."

Well, I'm confused. So you can warm food but not cook it? What does this mean? Who knows.

However, it hit a nerve with Twitter users who went on to share their horror stories with the world.

One guy responded with a screenshot of an email he had got off his landlord, which was even weirder.

It read: "Please don't take anymore big shits (shits over 3lbs) in your bathroom toilets.

"If you are eating a lot and holding your shits all week until Sunday and taking a big fat shit please stop.

"The clay pipes can't handle the weight of the shit.

"If you feel a large shit in your ass coming on please take it at a public library.

"Peace and love, landlord."

I mean, there's a lot going on with this one, isn't there? From the offset we could tell it was going to be weird, with the subject line 'No more big shits'.

But here's a question - before they evacuate their bowels, do people usually know the exact weight of their poo? How exactly is one supposed to guess such a thing?

Also, why would anybody purposely hold their poo in until Sunday? And finally, why is the alternative to using your own toilet - in the house that you're paying to live, and therefore shit in - to head down to the library?

There were other gems, of course:

If you're having landlord problems, hopefully these stories will make you feel a bit less alone - and if you're not... well, pray you never do.
