I need to vent for a second.
We rent and have pretty awesome landlords except for the fact that our fridge has been broken for the last 10 months. The tube that runs from the ice maker to the sink's water line has a hole in it. It caused massive flooding in our kitchen floor and ruined the floor, the landlords will have to replace it eventually. It also ruined our towels that we had to use to soak up the water plus I had to mop the floor several times a day to keep it up. I couldn't cook at my stove without standing in water or on a soaked towel. It was ridiculous. They do bi-monthly inspections and whenever they come to collect rent we tell them. We've texted, called, and they were very well informed about the issue and even came in and saw it a few months ago. Never did anything about it. DH finally got behind there and tied the tube off and turned the ice maker off so that the water would stop, which stopped the leak. We don't have ice but we never really use the ice anyway so whatever. I'm fine without it as long as there's no more water in my way. Well last night around 8 pm I get a text saying "So and So repair will be there tomorrow between 9 and 9:30 am."
That gives me less than 12 hours notice, and I have important appointments today that I cannot miss. I told the landlord this and asked if they can reschedule to Thursday since I will be home and available. She gave me attitude but said she'd "see what she can do". Never heard back so I've been up, sick and cleaning up expecting these people to come. She emails me about 15 minutes ago and said she left a message for them but they haven't called her back.
After 10 months of telling these people we have an issue they decide to fix it at a last minutes notice? Thanks but no thanks, DH took care of it. I have decided that since she did inform them that today is not a good day that I am locking up all the doors and closing the shades and just saying "fuck it". I have things to do and that is NOT on my schedule today.
