When I moved into my apartment, I thought it was beautiful.
Unfortunately, I had to call the maintenance man every day as I was finding new things broken.
The apartment building was brand new, and I had an apartment with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a working fireplace. After less than a month, I had to get a new refrigerator, the washer and dryer hadn’t been connected, and the fireplace wouldn’t light. It was chilly in the apartment, because they hadn’t put a thermostat in there yet. Monday morning, I was waiting for the HVAC technician to install the thermostats. On Tuesday, the maintenance man told me they would have a plumber at the apartment to turn on the gas so I could use the fireplace. I thought I should have access to the gas lever so I could use the fireplace instead of the furnace. He wasn’t happy when I said this, but he told me to take it up with the plumber. Wednesday, I should have been at work, but I was waiting for the HVAC technician. He hadn’t brought the right thermostats the apartment manager ordered, and he needed instructions on where they were to go. I spent an entire day listening to the building manager and the HVAC technician argue over the placement of six thermostats. It is soon going to be time for me sign a new lease. Mine is for only one year, but I am hoping the second lease will be for five years. I love the apartment now that the bugs are all worked out. I am only five minutes from work if I walk, and I have excellent HVAC, and a working fireplace. What more could a single woman want?
