As mostly polite people, we put up with far too much. We pay our rent in a timely fashion, we follow rules, and we get in hardly any fistfights over buffet crab legs.

Sometimes landlords and bosses don't realize that our polite compliance is negotiable. Sometimes it's important to show people who abuse their power that we have every right to be annoying too.
