I'm not sure if people are aware but ageism is considered a form of discrimination. Myself and my partner have been looking for a nice place to call home for 3 months now and have been rejected multiple times. One lady refused to even show us a flat because we weren't married however that is beside the point. Today I seen an amazing place, fell in love with it and asked to apply. Keep in mind we are both uni grads and hold steady employment, have good references including landlords, AND are non smokers (not that I personally have anything against smokers it was specified in the ad). After many inappropriate personal questions and multiple repetitions of " This is a NICE neighborhood, its RESIDENTIAL" we agreed on a time when my partner could view it because he worked today but trusts my judgment... apparently a concept this woman could not grasp. Before she even met him she called and canceled by literally saying not to waste our time because 23 (my partners age I'm older) is too young and the fact that they have a 20 year old son allows them to know enough 23 year olds to know what they are like. WTF ! I'm totally disgusted at much of a struggle it has been to find a nice place to live in this city. If your going to reject us at least let us apply first, consider calling our references and do it by just saying "sorry we picked someone else".
