Federal housing regulations have yet to explicitly bar landlords from pranking their tenants, but there are other protections in place, and this tenant knows them all.
Rachel Bell is the head of creative content at a real estate start up, which must be why her landlord "Brucie" knew she was the perfect target for a prank.
Bell came home to find a flyer announcing a new 10% rent hike "according to Numbers 18:21." If you heathens are unaware, the King James Bible translation of the verse is "And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation."
The takeaway from the verse, according to the landlord, is "give me your money, punk!"
