Landlords SUCK!!

Posted on 2007.04.04 at 16:26
Current Mood: angryangry
Ok, so most of you know my landlord won't fix anything....that it takes practically an act of congress to get something repaired in my house.  Well - the fridge has gone out.....so, thus begins another battle.

This time however, they were able to have the handyman come out and look at it the next day.  Wow...what great service, right?  So I left the key under the mat for him and came to work today.   THEN I get the email...

We happen to passby at the property this morning and found out that the door lock is loose, what we did is to buy a new one & replaced the old one. We inserted the new key in the ring with the old one and place again under the mat so that the technician can open the door. Also we screwed the hand railing going upstairs and put the door screen in place on (patio).
The Montgomery Vil. Association will be conducting door to door inspection within the premises effective April 15,2007 up to July 30, 2007. In this regard please clean the sorroundings and put to trash all unnecessary stuff.
Thank you for your usual cooperation.

WTF?? WHY did someone just go in my house - and WHY were you upstairs when I specifically gave you permission to go in and look at the fridge??? 

So - what I got out of this email...

1)   They more than likely made a copy of my deadbolt key when they went to get the new doorknob
2)   They "fixed" the screen door on the porch.  I've only been asking for it to be fixed since my move in checklist...and putting it back on the track won't do a damn thing as it's BUSTED!  Hello.....what part of that are you not understanding???
3)   They were snooping through my house just because they knew the key was under the mat.   Notice they put the key back for the technician - the fridge guy wasn't even there yet!  WHY would they be doing that??
4)   They probably found the cats.....shit.....not allowed to have them.

I calmed down a bit before I replied to him regarding all the things they still haven't fixed.....and I still haven't heard what is wrong with the fridge and when they plan to fix that....

Damn, if I had a security deposit for ANYWHERE else I'd move this weekend!  This is SO frustrating....harass me about my rent payments when I've NEVER missed one before nor will I ever miss one, come in and snoop around my house, never repair things when I ask them to, and then have the nerve to tell me to clean up the kids toys on the porch...The porch isn't even PART of the foundation's inspection.....they look at the exterior of the house, NOT what's on your porch for crying out loud...

GAH!  I so hate being poor and unable to afford decent housing, you know???


Wow....busy day for news, huh?

Stage 2.....he has stage 2 melanoma.

Which means we have to wait 2 weeks for the pathology to come back to see if he has to take immunotherapy drugs - which sucks.

But the good news is he won't need chemo or radiation......and he doesn't have a death sentence.

But they did tell him it will pop up somewhere else.  Apparently melanoma isn't deterred by cutting it off one place - it'll just pop back up somewhere else.

So for now....we wait....


What a week...

I've been trying to figure out how to pay the $500 fine to the MVA because I didn't have insurance for 2 months, before I have to renew my tags at the end of this month (another $200), and in the meantime get a power bill for $500...not to mention have rent coming due next week to the tune of $1350...  Needless to say I've been worrying and panicking over how the hell I'm going to do all that, when I can barely manage to feed my family...

I got home last night to hear from the babysitter that my daughter managed to break a TV in her house, as well as kill her turtle.  Needless to say I was furious with her about it, forced her to give the sitter all her money (about $5) to buy a new turtle, and gave the sitter the TV from my bedroom to replace the broken one....not to mention had that wonderful parenting thought of "wow...I really screwed this kid up, huh?"

But last night I realized none of that matters at all anymore...I got the call from hell last night....my dad has cancer.

They're doing surgery on Wednesday to remove the tumor, and see what "stage" the cancer is at which will determine if he'll need immunotherapy, chemo, and/or radiation.....or if it's gone so far that none of those treatments will even matter.

And I realized something.....I'd give up any amount of money, I'd take horribly rotten kids.....I'd do anything...   I'm not ready for my dad to die...

Holy shit - 91??? That I have no life doesn't surprise me, but the fact that in a list of movies seen, I have more than TL just shocks me!!

TL - you no longer have the right to act shocked when I say I haven't seen a movie...because apparently I have seen more of them than you. :-P Of course, had this been a list of movies before 1980 you'd have beat me hands down - I'll give you that...

Guess what I learned today...

I learned a valuable lesson today.....and I have to say I'm pretty pissed about it.

Never, and I mean NEVER, help out your co-worker when they're totally inept. Even if you need their shit to do your job - don't help them.


Because apparently it reflects to your boss that you're a "control freak" and that the reason you become overloaded with work is because when he gives something to someone else you "take it away" from them.


2 different managers today informed me that on 2 totally different occasions my boss has said that about me.

GOD I'm glad I'm leaving!
