I hate living in an apartment.
Well, that’s a little general. I pretty much like living in an apartment at this point in my life (it’s better than a van down by the river) but THIS apartment in a college town where the people are not only hicks, but also generally bad at business.
You’ve all been privy to my occasional rants about the bathroom (still no door) and the parking placard (still don’t have one) and all that crap. Well, they finally turned on the building heat -but now the woman who owns the building (I can only assume it’s her doing) is having all the large glass windows bricked up. The entry way once was a large wall of glass, letting in natural light that actually made the place look a little cheery despite the stairs with brown rubber skid protectors that dont match and the really cheap wood (sort of?) paneling. Now large grey cinder blocks make up over half of the wall and the only open glass area is the doors and a small pane about one foot wide on either side.
The back doors were once accompanied by glass panes as well, but those panes were replaced with the ugly large grey cinder blocks and heavy steel doors with one foot square windows in the upper middle.
This place is starting to look like a frickin’ cross between a mental hospital and a cement factory. YUCK.
God I want to move.
Anyone who knows legal stuff: If my lease says that maintenance issues will be addressed within 90 days (which it does) and they don’t put a door on my bathroom by then (next month -18th or so) can I break my lease and move? Will I have to pay a fine or lose my deposit?
Help! They’re taking away my sunshine!
