Moving Debacle

I have been silent for a few days, I have been busy moving, that is a huge job. Nothing went right on this move. It all started on Thursday when I went into the office to see if I could possibly look at the apartment to get some measurements. The manager looked at me with the proverbial deer in the headlights look. This is where I should mention the apartment complex has been sold, and this is a whole new management team. She gave me the keys and said she had not done a walk through to see if everything has been done. I went to the apartment, nothing had been done, NOTHING. So on Friday morning I advised the front office that nothing had been done, I was due to move in Saturday. She assured me that everything would be done in time for me to move in on Saturday.
Late Friday evening is when they began painting, they laid carpet on Saturday, needless to say, me wanting to start moving at 10:00 am was a moo point. Like a cow’s opinion, it didn’t matter. It took me 3 days to move. Worst move EVER. On the upside, I love the new apartment. There is so much space. It is like being in a house without the responsibilities of one.
I admit I became incredibly upset, as I like things to go my way, huge surprise there, I unleashed on an old woman in the front office. Horrible of me, I know, but seriously, I know the former management team must have left paperwork; I had to sign the new lease. The former tenants had been gone since Thanksgiving weekend. The new manager claims that she didn’t even know the space was vacant, however, I met a new neighbor and he said that the former tenants of said space also had a hard time with their new apartment; they switched to my old floor plan. So I don’t know what is going on, all I know is I received a 3 day credit on my rent for next month.
The only company that did not disappoint was Time Warner, there when they said they would be, didn’t leave until making sure everything worked. They rocked.
Elizabeth and Alex also rocked, Alex was there all three days, Elizabeth could not be, but she worked like a dog the first day. Jeffrey unable to help due to back surgery. But I know he was there wishing me well.
Yesterday was Elisabeth’s birthday, Jeffrey’s wife; I did not get to see her as she had to work until after I went to bed. But I think I really did good on the birthday present this year, I am not going to tell you all what I got until after I get to give it to her, on the off chance she reads this.
