Things are about to get complicated.
The one unifying aspect of this economic crisis is that the desperation is hitting all classes. It is no longer just the one on the low end of the totem pole that is scrambling financially. As the crisis started, I heard many stories of people that couldn't figure out how to pay their rent or their mortgage and found their struggles stalling at the deaf ears of their unsympathetic landlords who in most cases did not need that rent, and in even more cases, were never particularly attentive and responsible landlords to begin with. But as time rolled on, and the once lucrative American real estate market fell in shambles, these same opportunistic landlords found themselves in the same position of their tenants. And well, I thought that was funny. Hence, this scene.
