Just leave me be, real world! In other news...
Another rental, and another fight with the landlady's maintenance man. Sound familiar, Stefani?
Let's start from the top. Our shower has no pressure and takes five minutes to turn on some mornings. Our sink is hopelessly plugged up and has been for a while. We called the landlady and she said she'd send the plummer over right away. He shows up that afternoon, takes a look at it, and says he'll be back the next day, and that I should stick around to let him in. I give him my phone number just in case.
I work from home on Thursday so I can let him in. He never shows. Instead, he comes over Friday at EIGHT IN THE MORNING, takes another look at it, and says he'll be back later that day.
We don't see him again until Saturday afternoon. He says he fixed the shower, but the problem is still there and now the hot water is reversed. WTF.
Says he'll be back Monday to fix the sink. Haven't seen or heard from him since. Call the landlady, who says the plummer said I insisted that he not be in the house alone and that I'm never home when he has the time to come over. HOW THE EFF WOULD HE KNOW?! He hasn't called!!!! And by the way, SUCH A DAMN LIE because I've stayed home almost all day to let him in and I never said he couldn't be in here by himself.
DAMN ASS. I just want to take a shower without having to devote half an hour to getting the water right!
Any more mishaps and I'm insisting she hire a new plummer. This guy is apparently a friend of hers. He made it clear he's doing this for her as a favor. Um, okay. Just fix my sink, sir. I'm sick of brushing my teeth in the bath tub.
