Your reaction is typical of a high strung overly emotional woman. I suggest you get married it will make you a better rental applicant.
PS. it wasn't your information I had a problem with...it was the way you spoke down to that person....haven't you ever been 21 before?
: People get rejected on rental applications. It is a very valid reason
: to reject someone who does not have evidence of a lengthy
: payment history. And a twenty one year old's payment
: history is going to be very limited. I have known older tenants still
: in thier twenties who have had to have quarantors because of their age.
: Like it or not this is the real world.
: Even car insurance companies prejudice against younger males
: because they are a statistical risk.
: And I will repeat, I know rental agents who deliberately reject
: borderline cases (Someone who is very young, for instance, and
: no quarantor) just to see how they react to the situation. Jonathan's
: first reaction was to start yelling about filing claims and pontificating
: about the landlord's illegal behavior. NOW if the landlord would have
: wanted to reconsider Jonathan's application it is not likely they would
: even touch it with a ten foot pole after his immediate over reaction.
: And I will also say again, DO NOT COMPARE BEING YOUNG TO
: BEING TREATED IN A SEXIST OR RACIST MANNER!! The comparison
: is an offense to women and minorities that have suffered at the hand of such
: things. Particularly when we are probably talking about an affluent white male
: who will in time get older.
: Jonathan has probably already found a new place,and exhausted his anger
: over this minor matter, but here we are still talking about a kids knee-jerk
: reaction to rejection.
