Making friends

Once again, here I am making friends.

I spoke to my landlady over a week ago about the move in check-in form. There were a few things on there of concern. One being the light is out in the garage. I come home late at night and leave early for work which means it is dark and since I live a bit in the booneys, it is PITCH DARK. She has told me they have tried to fix the light, but apparently it can't be fixed and the whole unit needs to be replaced. I said fine, replace it. Apparently my land lady didn't hear that part?? I called and she said that she has to speak to the owner who is in Israel. Fine, speak to her and get back to me. Nope, she says, that the owner may not want to fix it. FINE! I say, then we need to discuss compensation for the fact that I have to have a light on 24/7, costing me more money and it is a safety issue. She says, it's just a light. I say,fine, then fix it. And around we go.

The other issue is the drains on the house are draining on my driveway creating ice right in front of the door. Again with the safety issues. She says this is the home owners association. Fine, so I need to call them? She says she will call them. Fine, call them, but call me and tell me what/when they are doing something.

She acts all high and mighty because the fireplace people are scheduled to come out this Friday, but lady, I CALLED THEM!!

Geez!! How hard is it to get a little communication around here? I realize this is a small town, but fuck it's been a week and she has not called anyone?!?!

I am guessing my land lady and I are not going to be friends.
