Heartless Landlord Won't Let Soldier Dad Stay With Wife & Newborn Baby for Christmas

soliderClearly, not everyone gets into the holiday spirit. A soldier on leave for Christmas won't be allowed to spend the season with his wife and newborn son for the most ridiculous reason you'll ever hear. The landlord is forbidding him from staying there because ...

... his name is not on the lease. Sergeant William Bolt can't be with his family in South Carolina for that simple -- and ridiculous -- reason. If he attempts to stay overnight there, the landlord says it's technically trespassing and he will press charges and double the wife's rent.

This is beyond Scrooge-like behavior. This landlord sounds like an evil cyborg from the planet A**h***. Even after Bolt, who has been stationed in Missouri for the last six months, explained he was just home for Christmas, the guy didn't budge. “He stated to me that he didn’t care about our situation, he didn’t care about me being in the military," said the soldier.

Absolutely outrageous ... not to mention cruel. We understand there are certain rules that various apartment complexes will have and they are there to keep order. But this particular restriction seems so over the top. If there were ever a case for an exception, this would be it. This is a man who is serving our country and deserves to spend the holiday with his family.

Do you think the landlord is justified in making this family stick to the rules?
