Who else hates when...

It is your word against someone else's and you have no proof? When we had our pre-inspection to move to our new house (we live in base housing), the lady that did the inspection told us that we had to repaint our master bedroom but that we didn't have to worry about the 2nd room (it was a really light pink). Well we repainted the master and didn't worry about the other one. Today we had our final inspection to find out that they were planning on charging us to have them repaint both rooms $100 each! The pink room would have taken maybe 2 coats of paint to cover (about $30), and it would have been much cheaper to just do ourselves! Since I did not have in writing that she said that we now have to pay that $100, and we also have to pay to repaint the other room again because the color wasn't the right color (it was too white)!!!! Sorry this is so long, I just need to vent because we just got back from the office after arguing with them! Lesson learned....get every little detail in writing or you will pay!
