The Hellhole shall never be defeated. Just when you thought it was safe to move back in… LEAKING PIPES SHALL HAUNT YOU!
Plumbers will be here tomorrow. I have to take time off work, because the washer/dryer water isn’t working properly. Rather than wait to do things at ‘condo speed’, I contacted a plumber myself to address the matter.
(Note: It cost me $350. The problem was they did not properly tighten the faucet. Duh HUH. I’m a plumbing idiot. It just needed to be tightened up. Also, they had to replace the fill valve and flapper on my toilet. I also have “service” plan in place now to take care of the plumbing down the line)
Also, they’re painting the exterior of the Hellhole now. As if to intentionally look like the phrase “Hell Hole”, the trim is being painted a terribly horrible shade of light pastel green. It reminds me of… well, nothing in nature takes on this shade of green. It’s bad. It’s so soft, it looks like it’s actually intended for a baby’s bedroom. Instead, it’s on MY HOUSE!
They also painted my garage door shut. The paint had literally glued my garage door shut. What the hell is going on here? Why is is that all the service folks hired by the condo association apparently don’t give a dang about common decency for their fellow man? It’s my house, don’t I deserve to be treated like it? Like, hey, wipe yer damn feet, don’t track mud, don’t bad mouth my beliefs, and just plain be decent. Don’t WE ALL DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE HUMAN BEINGS RATHER THAN WALKING BANK ACCOUNTS TO RANDOMLY RAPE CLEAN OF MONEY!?!?!
Lastly, I just want to say I’m excited and scared for Chris and Kim, as they’re going to Russia to meet my probable future nephew. It’s such a weird concept to me that my little brother is going to Russia. We’re children of the 80’s, when Russia was the big bad “Soviet Union”, and we cheered as Rambo blew up random Russian soldiers in violent matter on TV and at the theater because we didn’t know any better. How oddly frightening the bad guys of your childhood remain well after you’re old and wise enough to know who the real boogeymen are. Regardless of which, I’m worried sick that someone will scam them. Like, they meet the child they are planning to adopt, fly back to the US and then someone calls them and says “We have your child. Pay us $50,000 or we ship you his kneecap overnight”.
It’s not even funny how hard it is to adopt a child… you have to work so very hard for it. You have to prove it beyond any reasonable shadow of doubt. And then there’s morons left and right on the planet who keep having children “accidentally”, proving that potential for being good parents has absolutely nothing to do with reality.
