RENTING is a bit like playing Russian roulette, as these horror stories reveal.
Tenants have shared some truly terrible tales of scumbag landlords who have told them not to take "big s**ts" in the loo or to "cook in the kitchen".
One man from Dublin kicked off the discussion on Twitter by sharing a particularly gobsmacking Whatsapp message from a landlord.
The mystery tenant was told off for "cooking big meals in the kitchen" and treating the cooking space "as you use it at your home".
In the poorly spelled and rambling message, the landlord ranted: "Please do not cook a big meal in the kitchen, because of steam alarm went on many times.
"Kitchen is just to eat and worm the food. It does not have capacity to cook for everyone.
"Just try to use it on smart way. Basically this is a dining area, not for cooking real big meal, as you use it at your home. Thanks."
The message struck a chord with thousands of renters who have experienced rogue landlords, and the outrageous message has racked up 92,000 favourites.
It inspired many tenants to share their horror renting stories.
One shared a hilariously baffling message from a landlord called "no more big s**ts".
