Do you think I over reacted....

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

we have been with out aircondition or a stove or hotwater since Saturday and ON Sunday I decided to go down stairs to the apartment manager to see if we can get someone to fix it because i couldnt take the heat anymore, her reply Sorry i can't ddo anything for you I DO NOT GET PAID OVERTIME!  I flipped out because all I wanted was either a maintanece number or an emergency number where i can call and get my appliances fixed! DO YOU THINK I OVER REACTED?!

Thats the same thing my neighbor said! 

Quoting BEXi:

Honestly, it doesnt even matter if the OP NEEDS her AC or not. She pays rent for those luxuries. The apartment manager is responsible for making sure those things are accessible to her.

oh before I bought my bathroom cieling caved in because the assholes upstairs left their tub run...which meant they could see directly into my bathroom.  They tried saying that my apartment was still liveable so they wouldn't let me move into another unit or pay for a hotel.  Found it in my lease that if your only bathroom isn't functioning they must put you up. Problem solved!

Quoting Anonymous:

will do!

Quoting SRUsarahSC:

check your lease-usually there is a time limit for how long they have to respond to a maintence call.

I would, at that point, LMAO at her because you both know that is her job. If she can't see it that way tell her to sign a note quoting what she said and put your rent in escrow. She won't have a job for long.

You get more flies with honey than vinegar, flipping out won't make her help you any sooner. Try calmly speaking to her to help your problems fixed, listen to her reasons if she wont do it right away, it's only AC, people lived for thousands of years without it.
