med_failure Posted October 16, 2011 Report Share Posted October 16, 2011 **** happens in life all the time. What do you guys think I should have done last night. The story goes: So I was over at my girlfriend's. She rents 1 room in a house with the landlord living in the basement and a bunch of other girls in the house with shared washroom and kitchen. I went over to her place 2 days ago stayed there in her room quietly studying as we both have exams this week. Then last night her landlord comes up 1:30 am in the morning for absolutely no reason knocked on her door and asking me to leave (we were sleeping at the time and she knew I was there earlier that day as well). Her reason being she only rents the room to her so she can't bring anyone else in the room w/o her permission. So I argued with her since there's nothing on her lease saying that she can't bring guests over. Only clause regarding guest policy was that if the guest stays over for more than 3 nights then additional 50 dollars will be charged towards that month and I was only there for 2 nights so far and I can assure you that every time when I even talk with normal volume my gf shushes me and I only whispered definitely didn't use the kitchener at all and did NOT disturb any of the other tenets as I am friends with some of them too. So back to the story, I got quite frustrated with the landlord for laying all that BS on my gf ALL the time and I thought it's my right to stay there over as a guest and the landlord was yelling like a maniac and about to grab my shirt and throw me out so I called 911. What baffles me is the reaction from the cops. There's 2 of them one playing the good cop the other guy playing the bad cop or just is one. He said it's stupid to call 911 over this and they have better things to do (Ok I dunno about you guys but I ain't a law student or lawyer in that matter how do I know when would be right to call 911? to me this is domestic dispute and cops do take care of those things as it turned out they did have to do SOMEthing about it). So without any investigation he said well if I were u when the landlord says you can't stay no questions asked you gotta leave. The other guy said well I know how frustrating this is I have been through it myself with my own gf and I gotta put up with that **** and kiss ass to stay etc etc. So in the end I was kicked out last night (Not a big deal I got a nice condo in downtown toronto so it was a 20 min drive but I just felt bad and thought my right was being violated there) However I am not a professional in this area therefore I had no choice and nothing to argue back with the cops. My question for you smart meds and premeds what could I have done better? What would you have done in that situation? Thanks, I needed to vent!
