    Excuse me miss, but I am said owner of a hairy diseased ball sack and I DEMAND you take your ENTIRE blog post down. You have offended me and my hairy diseased ball sack by talking about it in such a negative affect.

    Glad it finally got fixed…but really, feel free to blow things up anyway. Or you can pent up that anger for the NEXT time 😉

  • ah yes, the joys of renting. I know it well. I like to think of it as the “we have more money than you and therefore are better than you and therefore can do things whenever the hell we want because you (aka peon) are living in OUR (aka king of the world) house and by the way your inflated rent is paying for us to vacation in Tahiti this year” rule.

    Sucks to be us.

  • I know exactly what you’re going through, my landlord takes forever fixing stuff around here, and the resident managers can never do their job even if they try…because he never gives them appropriate material. He gets on my butt because my kid puts out a cigarette on the wall (okay, that’s bad, but she got an ear full from me, so it’s not like I’m LETTING her do half the garbage she’s done lately. She also can only sit on the porch when she goes outside talking on the phone), throws stuff in the bushes (her and everyone else, ugh—she got to clean it up!) and we haven’t replaced this one window yet—which will be difficult to replace. But I’m calling people! Gotta do it again tomorrow!

    But, totally, I know what you’re going through. One reason I want to buy a house (but they won’t let people with scizo credit history buy houses. Even if we pay rent relatively on time..:-|).

    And that’s reason number 1,000,000,000 (ha, my list is LONGER!) I want out of this place! Wish I could rent a house…buying one would be better though….

  • You have such a hilarious way of putting things. But I do know how you feel. Our bathroom hasn’t had a working exhaust fan since about 6 months after we moved in … four years ago. And our dishwasher makes dishes dirtier than what they went in.

    Renting an apartment. Renting a house. Same shit, just more space (most of the time).

    Glad someone finally showed up! At least they have the excuse of not having a maintenance person on hand during normal business hours 😉

  • I have a list of stupid stories involving our management company and this house we are renting. Morons – every single one of them. Let’s start with the time the I made one of their men cry. He called the home office and told on me. I was 9 months pregnant and a little testy but seriously dude, man up. I was just snippy – I didn’t throw knives at you or anything. And the time we got the letter from the HOA that there were too many weeds in our lawn so they sent someone to mow it and then tried to charge us for it. We fought about that one for a month because I was very clear in my 1 email and 2 phone messages that it wasn’t that the weeds were long – they were too plentiful. (Though beautifully manicured if I do say so…). I’ll stop but man oh man why do they have to suck so much?

  • And why I will (hopefully) never rent again.

    Instead, stuff around here never gets done because the landlord is a lazy arse. That’s me. A lazy arse who doesn’t know how to do a single thing around the place.

    My friend who rented a house had to poop in a bucket for a week because her lazy hippie landlords wouldn’t get someone competent to fix her plumbing and took their sweet time doing a terrible job themselves. FYI, I’m not against hippies, just lazy ones who think pooping in a bucket is a good substitute for proper sewage facilities. We were always fixing things on the sly in our rental, just to avoid these types of issues.

    Loved your post (and the recent prior one)!! I’ve missed reading you and am so happy to see that you’re back. Renting does suck, esp if you have a crappy landlord.

    November 04, 2009
  • Do they know you have a popular blog? Have you threatened to write about your issues and actually print the management company’s name? Since you had all those other great threats I figured you could throw an extra one in, too. Personally, I liked the getting N1H1 poop in a box thing, but since it sounds like you’ve got enough on your plate, maybe that could be plan B….

    Well dearest, I am thrilled that the sucky property management FINALLY fixed the kitchen lights. They are truly asshats! Great post, babe!

  • Ima singin’ the rental blues with ya babe.

    We signed the lease on this place ON THE CONDITION that a huge mofo of a fence be erected to stop Boo from running into the street naked and making dirt angels in the neighbours driveway.

    They said sure.

    We have been here THREE AND A HALF YEARS and I am still waiting. Every couple of months they send someone around to measure the gates and then nothing…

    Doing my damn head in.

  • I think I have the only good landlord on the planet. There’s only one, and I somehow scored him, but he’s up for grabs come March 1st.

    That is all sorts of suckitude from the property management company. I suppose we have to keep the secret that you are harboring explosives in that rental? 😛

    It’s probably good you didn’t have to explode anything.

  • I hear you. We’ve been renting for a little over two years. We’ve reached the point now, where we 1. call 2. if they don’t respond within a week, we 3. fix shit ourselves 4. send them the bill 5. we threaten to withold this rent until they pay us back.

    Thusfar they’ve always paid us back, or sent someone within a reasonable amount of time…but we have a wall that has a major damp problem, that has not been fixed for the simple reason that it requires a major rebuilding of that room. Luckily it’s an exterior wall, of an addition which we don’t use much, so there’s no imminent threat of ‘damp related’ issues.

    Still. It sucks. Oh and we have a clause that I’m allowed to paint and decorate as I wish, provided the house is returned to a neutral status when we leave, which is okay anyway, since ‘neutral’ walls I’m into. :)

  • so glad I don’t have to deal with property mgt companies anymore. I remember when we rented our house in FL & the drain rusted out in the tub, flooding the entire master and linen closet. I called them to come out to fix it, they weren’t sure if they could get anyone out there until the following week & actually suggested I that whore bathe the children until they did. I threatened to call the base to have them reported-not that they were associated with the base, but if they base had to step in enough times they would be on the ‘black ball list’ in a big navy town.

    Someone was there the next day. Too bad they don’t have something like that for musicians families. Glad you have a new light-hopefully nothing breaks for a while.

  • roflmao – I so needed that laugh.

    Cause see, when I need to complain about what’s messed up in my rental home, I have to do it in *sob* french.

    And my French is so bad, that when I try to say, “please tell me how to turn off the secret, runs in the dark of the night when I am sleeping and unaware, irrigation system because we had a *gasp* six hundred dollar water bill this month.” What actually comes out is something to the effect of “We love you and your perfect house and your irrigation system is brilliant. Really – because we are made of money and there is an endless supply of potable water on this planet” sigh.


    ps: glad you got the light fixed – mac and cheese is way better than atomic bomb. :)
