First, I wanted to let you know that I had to go through my primary care doctor to get a referral about the cyst/ulcer in my mouth. An ENT scheduler called me yesterday and I have an appointment tomorrow morning.
It isn’t hurting much now and has gone down a bit in size. I guess it was swollen from my having accidentally bitten it. Still, it’s a bit hard to eat around the cyst without biting it.
Apartment Complex Update:
Yesterday morning I dropped Charlie off at the vet’s office for his acupuncture appointment. They called me about an hour or so later to come to pick him up.
As I was driving toward the complex gate to leave, two fire trucks blocked me. There were about 8 firemen milling around.
I also saw a man in a suit standing on the sidewalk with his hands in his pockets. So I parked and went up to him and asked if he was someone with complex management. He said no. That he was the chaplain.
Oh no, I thought. What has happened now? Has someone died due to the negligence of the owners of this place?
They Never Follow Through Here:
We were promised someone from the regional office would be here to answer our questions yesterday. But he hadn’t shown as of noon. Whether he ever showed up I don’t know.
No one was hurt, as I had initially feared. Apparently, there was a water leak due to a water heater exploding. I suppose, not knowing who else to call, the resident resorted to calling the fire department.
The firemen were looking for someone who managed the place. I told them there was no management or maintenance and hadn’t been for nearly a week.
A Violation Code:
They said something about that being a violation code.
One fireman said, “We’re going to try to find some help for you people. We will find out who owns this property.”
But that never happened.
Earlier that morning I had called the Tulsa courthouse looking for someone with jurisdiction over this problem. They said there was no one who fit the bill.
And they suggested I contact an attorney. I wasn’t paying for an attorney.
I’m not calling any news outlets because I fear retribution. I’ve been asking around so they will surely think it’s me if that happens.
I have now called the fire department (before this happened yesterday), the sheriff, and the police department. No one seems to know what to do.
I called the manager of another complex who stayed after this new owner took over to say this was an accident waiting to happen over here.
Stop Pushing Buttons:
But I was told to: “Stop pushing buttons and leave it alone.” Then she hung up on me.
I’m going to meet my youngest daughter for lunch. It is her 41st birthday and we always meet for lunch on our birthdays. She chose Chinese food today.
I have a few errands to run before we meet up so I’m heading out soon.
