1) An opportunistic mentally ill parasite who honestly believes he provides an honest, morally sound business for his community. But in reality, siphons huge amounts of resources from his tenants trapping them into the perpetual gamed cycle of renting rather than owning.

2) A person, company, or firm who owns so much property they can easily set the rental rates of a particular area.

Not a job. By definition, a landlord is a property owner, and at best, is an investor. Investment Slacker. Will try to convince others that what they do is, in fact, a "real" "job" by listing responsibilities such as:
Asking for money
Waking up at noon
Drinking box wine before 5 pm
Neglecting significant issues with the rental unit
Raising rent to discourage "the" "element" from renting units
Researching discriminatory practices

Telling people with "real" "jobs" to get "real" "jobs."
Frankie D: Yeah, I dunno Rich, I mean if it makes money--it's a job, right?
Richie B: Wrong Frank. Panhandlers make money, but asking for change on the street isn't a job--neither is being a landlord.

A person who makes an honest living by purchasing property and then renting out space to tenants. Usually hated by said tenants because they seem to ignore the fact that the landlord had to pay for the property and is entitled to be reimbursed.
I need to pay rent to the landlord every month.
