There are even more serious problems with this apartment complex. So I may be moving soon. I’m really tired of living in slumlord apartments.
Ironically, I checked in with one of the 55+ places yesterday afternoon. None of the 3 55+ places in town has had an opening for quite some time.
However, an hour later that same place called to say a 2 bedroom was opening up at the end of January.
Am I dreaming?
I keep thinking I’m dreaming and somehow there won’t be another apartment. That the person might back out.
I have an appointment to talk to them Monday though I won’t be able to see it, as someone lives there. Actually, I haven’t been able to see any of the 55+ apartments I’ve been on the waiting list for.
All occupied. But I’ve at least seen diagrams online.
What’s Happening Here:
Here’s what’s happened this week at this apartment complex I live in. I found out that they’re raising the rent for a 1 bedroom like mine another $150. I already pay an extra $130 to lease on a month-to-month basis.
My air conditioner went out and they won’t fix it. Apparently, they won’t look into the problem until it’s hot outside.
Oh, but after I asked very nicely they let me borrow one of their window air conditioners. Some of you may recall that I had a window air conditioner put in my bedroom window a few years ago. But I checked it and it’s dead.
The problem is that in Oklahoma you might have 30 degrees one day and 80 the next.
I ran into a guy who’s lived here a long time but is planning now to move. He said: “Well, I use my air conditioning unit year-round.” (Yeah, me too. Because of the crazy unpredictable weather.)
As if that isn’t enough, there is now a really bad rat problem here. This is because raw sewage is coming up through the ground somewhere here. I guess because of the many tree roots tearing into the sewer.
And that, along with the snakes coming down into some of the ceiling vents, is something I can’t deal with. If I see a snake coming down from one of my vents I will surely keel over.
I don’t know how they get by with this stuff, but I just want out of here as quick as I can get out.
The assumption is that they’re trying to run us out. You see the land under these 100 units is worth $2 million. Found that out from the guy I ran into who knows someone working for the city.
What The Maintenance Man Told Me:
I talked to the maintenance man (who is quitting after a year here). He said he told the manager that raising the rates on 1 bedroom apartments $150 will lead to below 50% occupancy. She said she didn’t care.
Now what does that tell you?
So I Googled “rats and sewage” and this is what I read:
Do rats come up toilets?
Once rats find their way to the top of the toilet, the rodents can come out of the toilet if the lid is raised. It is also possible for a larger rat to lift the lid of the toilet with its head to exit the toilet and search the surrounding area for food.
Can you even imagine that?
