When questions as to what had started the bad feelings between the landlord and himself, they tenant replied, "Man, he's just a jerk, he's done everything to me from H to O"

See what capitalism gets you?
He should sooo have his property taken away and given to those who need it more.

Someone pours a bucket of water on you, and you CALL THE FARKIN' COPS? Unless the water was scalding hot, this is what we used to call a "prank". It would be met with an equally lame, but harmless prank in retaliation. That or an ass-beating. Why do the cops need to be involved? Pussy.

All alone on a summers night,
kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
Watch dog barking to he bite?
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
Slip in his window, break his neck,
Then his house I start to wreck,
Got no reason, what da heck?
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
C-I-L-L my landlord.

Why didn't he just rig the bucket to the door with string so it would pour itself when he left? Duh.

Landlord: See, I never just did things just to do them. Come on, what am I gonna do? Just all of a sudden jump up and pour a bucket of water on somebody like it's something to do? Come on. I got a little more sense then that.

[pause]

Landlord: Yeah, I remember pouring a bucket of water on my tenant's head.

This would never work in Oregon. Landlord's gotta give you 24 hours notice if they're going to be on the property. "Hey, you asshole tenant, I'm gonna be on your roof 24 hours from now with a bucket of water. Just you watch out."

You sound like you misunderstand the definition of "battery" and the purpose of the law in preventing people from enduring "pranks". Is another prank of yours to feed people's dogs anti-freeze laced steak as well as lighting their lawn on fire?
 
2010-04-06 1:57:37 PM  
The reason you need to call the cops as opposed to doing something back is that if you do something back to the landlord, he will call the cops.

You can say that he started it but you know what, they're gonna take you in.

Sigh... Punny things here on Fark...

He probably said "Water you doing?"

So pouring water on someone is similar to killing their pets or destroying their property?

That's kind of my point. He didn't beat-up his tenant. He just poured water on the guy. Calling the cops, in my opinion, is an overreaction. An appropriate response would be to put a couple of dead fish behind the heater vents of his car.

Yeah, it's a good idea to retaliate and get your ass kicked out of the place you live. That or go to the cops, so if the guy does any shady stuff acting as landlord you have a record that he is a douche.

The trick is to wait a few days, then retaliate in a way that is unconnected to the water-throwing incident. For instance, go to the landlord's place of employment, and bribe someone else to deflate his tires.

I'd just beat his ass and start packing. No need to involve the cops.

This just in: there is apparently no form of property that can be damaged by pouring water on it. Scientists around the world are baffled at this sudden shift in the laws of physics as we know them.

There are these assholes in my building that play really loud, really bassy music late at night in the middle of the week. After the third time it happened, my roommate and I filled a few beer bottles with piss and tied them together with string, and then tied the string to their doorknob.

The money that it would take to replace the soaked iPhone in the dude's pocket would buy a whole bunch of grass seed...

Did you try talking to them about this? Go to your landlord? Complain to the cops? Or did you just go straight to juvenile pranks?

Ive had similar problems and done everything youve mentioned. In reality, if they arent having parties but just listening to super loud bass they basically get in a loophole where they win. These kind of people dont give a sheet about anyone else. I respect this mans piss move as long as he as least gone through the above channels once...

Yep, multiple times. Was really nice about it too, just asked them to turn down the bass... which they would do, for about 20 minutes. And this was just during the week, we ignored it during the weekend when other tenants would have the same issues with them. So we finally decided to fight fire with fire. :)
