This is totally off topic, but I'm awake here at 3am because i've totally had it with renting in NY. If you've read my post about my original moving woes back in November this has been going on w/ the NEW landlords… they have entered my apartment at least twice without my permission, thrown away a sentimental pendant i had which was hanging on my door knob (they replaced the door w/o telling me and threw away old door not knowing the pendant was on it) mixed plaster in my sink all over my dishes, taken weeks to fix a stove that wasn't working, wouldn't install a dead bolt on my door for weeks, wouldn't give me a copy of my lease for weeks. i went down today to ask her to turn up the heat cause I was FREEZING last night and she responded with "legally i can turn the heat off in april. so i've shut it off and i'm not turning it back on again." UGH! i ask her where this is documented and she says the landlord tenant rights. i walk away shaking my head and she mumbles something about me going to check it, and i say "ok, i will" and she says "i'm sure you will!" (uh, how old are we?) so i go check it, and she is WRONG! it is actually until May 31 that she is required to provide heat (if its lower than 55 degrees during the day which it was yesterday) when i pointed it out to her, she got all angry and said i was so nitpicky and over react about everything and started being really mean. i told her it was not "nitpicky" of me to want advance notice when they will be entering my apartment, nor was it "nitpicky" of me to require that my stove work. and it just went in circles....
ahhhhh.... i need to move away from NY. This is not the place for me.... the cost of living is outrageous and the STANDARD of living is WAY lower (at least with regards to the quality of apartments available.) For the amount i'm paying for this crappy tiny apartment here - I could have a 4 bedroom house w/ yard in Michigan!
Hopefully I can get a new job SOONNNNNNNNN and get the heck outta here. And now we've been banned from the dog park cause lenny is unneutered...:mad:
all in all, not a great day today.
thanks for letting me vent.... now i'm going to sleep.
