You have the patience of Job, bfloyd! You're obviously a good man that made a tough decision. You showed tremendous compassion for someone that was blatantly screwing you. I don't know if I could have done that or not.
"Tenant Law" is an interesting topic. I sure that TwoLaneCruiser is well versed in it and can throw in his $.02. I know in some states that hotels will limit your stays to 29 days because once you hit 30 days, you're a tenant and then they have to go through the eviction process to throw you out.
