, think that you should tip your landlord. In this video, they equate being a landlord to a barista or a delivery driver, and try to make the point that they provide a much more valuable service. "So you'll tip an extra 25% for somebody to carry you a basket of chicken wings, but you won't tip someone who responds for after hours emergency calls?"
Of course, this argument is a logical fallacy, because tipping exists to help supplement underpaid labor that we appreciate, not to support everyone who provides a necessary service. By their logic, we should be tipping our doctors, teachers, and airline pilots. Plus, as one person comments, 25% on a $1600 rent may be a little more than 25% on a $27 bill from a restaurant."
These two "Real Estate Investing Mentors" have plenty of other ideas when it comes to being a landlord, including changing laws that force them to maintain their properties. Maybe landlords would get a tip every now and then if they weren't complete and total knobs. Too bad these guys will never find out.
