Then I called the office to complain about kids starting a fire at the playground. This was just after 4th of July. One of the kids was the grandson of one of the women that work in the office.
Then we started getting notices on our door. For stupid stuff. Jackson left a riding toy on our porch and we get a notice saying we're in fire code violation because we're blocking the breezeway. Jay and I walked around with my digicam and took pics of other porches. Porches that were completely blocked by bicycles and/or grills. (When we first moved here, we had the boys' bikes chained outside. We were told it was not allowed to have them outside. So we've kept them in my bedroom since.) Jay and I took about 12-15 pics. I burned them to disc and attached it to a not I scrawled on the back of my fire code violation notice.
Then we get notices that our apartment is going to be inspected for preventative maintenance. Ok used to that, they've been doing that since we first moved here. A maintenance guy comes in, checks the fire extinguisher, smoke detector and hot water heater.
Then I got a notice recently about music/noise violation. I called the office as instructed and was told that it was a general complaint for our building so the four of us got one. I told them who it was. I also got a notice saying there was going to be an inspection on general maintenance. They came in, took notes and left.
Today while I was at the bank I got two notices. One saying that according to section X in our lease we're responsible for the "sole expense keep an maintain the leased premises and appurtenance in good and sanitary condition and repair during the term of the Lease, ordinary wear and tear accepted." Then goes on to tell me it is necessary at this time for me to clean and sanitize said premises. Deep clean entire apartment. Clean all toilets, tubs, tub walls, sinks and floors in bathrooms. (That's always done.) Entire carpetting must be vacuumed. (They must not know I'm obsessed with vacuuming.) Remove all food particles, trash, etc from all areas of apartment. (Trash is always taken out. Food always put away or disposed of.) Clean out cabinets and drawers in kitchen and thoroughly clean countertops, appliances and floors. (I do that several times a day as I'm cleaning.) AND....we're to be inspected on Wednesday October 3 for compliance of said letter. WTF?
Attached to that notice is a notice saying their office has been notified of loud music or noise coming from our apartment that's disturbing our neighbors. Again, WTF? I haven't played music in at least a month! It was 5:03 when I read the notices. I immediately grabbed the phone to call the office, but apparently the switch them to voice mail at 5.
SO I left a message saying, "This is Kaytee P----- in B29. I just recieved a notice about loud music complaints. I don't know who's calling to complain but I haven't played any music in three weeks. If you want to send a notice about loud music send it to my neighors upstairs in B30." I was not very nice in tone. I left my number. But I will be calling back first thing Monday morning.
Our lease is up for renewal the end of November. As far as I'm concerned, they can take that renewal and shove it up their asses. We are looking for somewhere else to move to. This place has gone downhill that past year and a half. Nothing but illegals piling into 1,2, or 3 bedroom apartments. Hell the people upstairs from us have 7 adults and one child in a 3 bedroom. Where the hell do they sleep?
Anyway, Jimmy said he doesn't want me to go all crazy making sure it's completely spotless. Wants me to clean it like I do every day. He said, "We have four children in a small 3 bedroom apartment. What do they expect?" He doesn't care what they think. He's just as sick of living here as I am.
Apparently we've pissed someone off and they want us to leave. Well Bon Voyage. Come November 30th, we're gone. I'm tempted to have the camera set up and have all 6 of us moon them. LOL
