Hilarious Note From 'Landlord' Tells Tenants They'll Have to PAY to Use the Elevator (PHOTO)

Reddit Landlorad elevator note

Have you ever been super frustrated with a landlord or building manager? Well then, you'll laugh out LOUD at this hilarious note posted on a building elevator that's going viral today. This message, which was uploaded onto Reddit, appears to be from a landlord informing all tenants that they'll have to pay to use the elevator in the building.

Yup, an additional fee of $35 a month after the first 60 uses! Can you even imagine?! I will say, I do appreciate the writer's hint at comedy, noting that indeed taking the stairs are free.

Was your first reaction this has GOTTA be a joke, right? Yeah, mine too. And thankfully -- it is.


When it comes to apartment, condominium, or any other sort of multi-family housing -- dealing with the upper management can always be oodles of fun. Heck, one day your landlord is telling you that you have to put your recycling in the container near the waste chute, and the next you're getting a note on your door that you're TOTALLY DOING IT WRONG (in all CAPS, of course).

It most certainly wouldn't surprise me to get some sort of random note like this in the building that I live in. Granted I live in a third-floor walk-up without an elevator. However, management companies do things like this all the time, and usually it feels like they're doing it just to get a rise out of their tenants.

Thankfully, like I mentioned, this particular note was just a joke. In fact, a representative from the apartment building called Huffington Post to let them know that the sign was a prank pulled by a resident. Ha, and here I was thinking I had silly neighbors. 

Has a neighbor ever pulled a prank on you? Do you hate dealing with your landlord?
