Dear Real Estate Ethicist,

My landlady is 81 years old. She does a terrible job of maintaining our building. She has not cashed my rent check for four months. I am conveniently ignoring her. Am I doing the wrong thing? –Lucky Tenant

Dear Lucky Tenant,

If you are calculating this mistake as a gain, you are a fool. These sorts of situations always get reconciled, and your little mistake will too. Remember, there is no such thing as a free latte. When you get caught, you will feel rather stupid. Duping an 81-year-old lady? Come on. –Real Estate Ethicist
