Sounds like a good enough reason to me, disabilities be damned.

GTFO ya moocher, and let a real student live there.

In August 2007, Gerd'son was given a one-year agreement that increased his rent to $655 a month from $605.

if the apartment wanted to be really serious, they would give him till the count of potato to move out.

"Gerd'son has argued the university is in fact trying to evict him because of his disability"

No, they're evicting you because all the coeds are getting creeped out by the 40yo gimp who oggles them every time they walk down the hall.
 
2010-01-07 02:46:28 PM
Sure: a student hanging around campus facilities producing nothing and costing the school money get's evicted after getting special treatment for being in a minority.

A professor does the sane exact thing and gets tenure.

To be fair, if you could pay $655.00 a month for an apartment with hot and cold running co-eds, would you move out?
 
2010-01-07 02:47:26 PM
How Pathetic.. It's like a douche bag that won't move out of his mother basement. How could this remotely be a violation of human rights? To what live on a campus intended for STUDENTS..

He's a free-loader. Get the hell out of the student dorm or enlist in a master degree program.

"Is he mad because he is paralyzed?"

"No he has always been a jerk"

That had me rolling

Yes I would probably allow this because I do not want to raise the child myself but very much would like the sex with Mr. Fox if he is a good looking man. It would be the win and win.

How much of a schmuck does a person need to be not to get along with CANADIANS?!?

I met a metric boatload of nice people in Quebec, for crying out loud. I can only conclude that you're doing it wrong.

I'm guessing it's off campus housing in an apartment building the University owns or leases and not a dorm room.

2010-01-07 03:03:18 PM
Wow that is nuts. I from reading it sounds like it is more like the family housing for grad/doctoral/post doc people that most colleges have. Not a dorm. Most colleges won't let you live in a dorm after 24/25 even if you are undergrad. This is odd to me, but I'm not Canadian so what do I know.

/would love to have my able body living in a dorm with all that hot young college ass

Gov't cheese scam. I'm guessing he only got free rent as long as he was a "student".

The Queen says otherwise. :-) (I know what you meant.)

Anyway, the point was that if nice people abound in Quebec - typically considered a hotbed of impoliteness - then finding nice people in every other province should be a breeze.

The point stands: whatshisname up there is defective in some way.

He hasn't enrolled in credit courses since 1997, although he's registered in a business-management program.

Thirteen years down the drain.

It's OK. I like the unwarranted over-reaction. It is much better than Canadian feigned sincerity. The truth hurts at first. But now that I have enlightened you to the truth, it may set you free. Continue expressing yourself as freely as you did to me, and then learn a little restraint, and you will eventually become honest and forthcoming in all you do, making you the one and only Canadian who does so.

My question is: Does he have a job and just enjoy living there? Or does he just sit in the apartment all day and do nothing. I bet his "disability" is being morbidly obese and not being able to move.

Bobby Ive got propane in my urethra: Disabled people are assholes, by and large. Inconvenient truth. Except wounded soldiers, those dudes are mainly badasses.

THIS!

In downtown Vancouver, the buses lower to sidewalk level as well as having a wheelchair ramp. Waiting for a bus one day with a woman in her early 60's, who had one of those wheeled walker things. The bus driver pulled up & lowered the bus to sidewalk level. She wheels up to the bus and SCREAMS "I AM DISABLED!! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU!? CAN'T YOU SEE I NEED THE GODD**M RAMP!?" So he lowers the ramp and as she's wheeling her walker onto it, she screams (and honestly, she's shrieking at top volume) "I SAW THAT LOOK! I'M SO SICK OF YOU DRIVERS! TREATING DISABLED ELDERLY LIKE TRASH! I AM REPORTING YOU! I HAVE HAD IT!" To which the driver calmly replied, "Look? I had to look at you to lower the ramp, which I am happy to do for anyone who requests it. By pulling your walker up to the bus, in the way of the ramp, I mistakenly thought you did not require it. All you have to do is ask." The old bat not only keeps shouting about how horribly he's treated an elderly disabled woman, but spends the duration of her ride trying to get everyone sitting near her to agree with her about what an evil, horrible man the driver was to NOT notice that she's elderly and clearly disabled.

I really wanted to kick her walker over. People like that...

/i know, cooooool story bro...
