I have been living in the same apartment for the last year and a half.
- I really like my little apartment but enough is enough.
How much does a person have to take before she is ready to say I’m done? I sat in my tiny apartment poring over a bunch of ads that I had already read through twice. I was trying to find the perfect apartment that was close to what I was paying and still in a good area. As I said, I had lived here for eighteen months and in six months, I would either need to leave for me, or because I was getting kicked out. I talked to the landlord six times trying to get him to fix my HVAC system. I called him three times before he even returned my phone call. I left him messages explaining in detail how badly the HVAC system sounded and the poor amount of heating I was getting. After the fourth call, my HVAC system quit working. I didn’t even have any airflow. I was so upset that I was sure what to do other than go to his place of residence. I was afraid he would have the cops take me away, but I took someone along with me. I told him I wanted my HVAC system repaired or I was going to have it repaired on my own. When he dared me to, I told him fine, but the bill would come to him. He sputtered, even more when I introduced him to my brother, the lawyer. I’m sure he planned on evicting me when my lease was up, and I hoped I had an apartment before then.
