When we moved in, there was no hot water. For weeks. Six, to be exact. Then they jackhammered the slab in our bathroom to fix the slab leak the week before Christmas. Merry Christmas, we had hot water, and a buggered up bathroom.
Well, that got fixed soon enough...almost. Somehow, someone forgot the baseboard tiles in our bathroom. It's been four months. We've reminded them. It's not an emergency, so not a priority therefore it's not done.
The second slab leak due to the ice storm got fixed a bit quicker and no jackhammering was required in our unit, but it represents a couple more weeks with cold water.
Did I mention the time the roof collapsed on the unit above us, and we had water pouring in through our ceiling during a really bad rain on Christmas eve? They fixed that right quick all nice and tidy.
And then there is the broken light in our bathroom. It sat there for months as well. Nice and dark. It finally got fixed last Friday, so that the crew could see to rip our wall out and work on another plumbing leak. See, we have water leaking onto our kitchen floor from some upstairs drain or other.
Today a maintenance man was in here with a contractor, looking at the job. Said they'd come back this afternoon. So I called Wes to see if he could work from home because one of our kids had a doctor appointment this afternoon and the others couldn't really come with me and I couldn't leave them here while contractors were here. So he came home to work.
And the crew never showed.
Supposedly they are coming bright and early tomorrow morning at 8 am. If we get up at the crack and they aren't here then, I'll be
Oh, and our air conditioner does not work, pending a routine maintenance check on it this week or next week when it will get fixed. Meanwhile, the windows are open.
And while I was starting to fix supper just now, the microwave handle came loose in my hand. I think some super glue is in order because I just don't want to deal with them again.
Why, why, why?????? But here's my mantra: When stuff goes wrong... We don't have to pay for it.
