Here’s one for the tenants, renters, lessees, and other purveyors of usurious accommodation services in the great brown land of Oz.

I could only chuckle when I found this damning marker work on a telephone junction box at the railway crossing at Smith Street, Thornbury. Not that all landlords deserve this defamatory treatment. I myself have been blessed with a few stellar ones in my rental career. Perhaps landlords cop a lot of the blame from the fallout of the machinations of rabid rental property managers. Or is that merely the “I was only following market forces” excuse. Whatever the case, this one’s a sinister looking bastard.

Is that a bleeding heart? Perhaps he is redeemable afterall.
