Here is another occasion where utilities were included in the rent paid by the tenants. The landlord in question obviously regrets this set-up and has decided to do something to control the amount of money he has to spend on heating the building.
His solution was to actually put a plastic cage around the thermostat. The cage has a lock, and the landlord the only key, so the tenants aren’t able to change the temperature inside the apartment themselves. This seems pretty petty to me really, I mean he really is treating them like children, and cold ones at that.
