    Replied to the office with the safety/security concerns and got crickets. I didn’t get out of work early enough to stop to speak with someone so I’m going to try tomorrow.

    I’d be the ass that reports them to the city code enforcement office. You know they didn’t pull a permit for that work.

    I have our rent on autopay and the rent portal is down so it didn’t pull our rent. We’re required to use the portal to pay rent. They sent an email at 4:08pm yesterday that they want us to bring in a money order or cashiers check to pay our rent (that was due yesterday!)

    It’s their problem the portal is down and they want you guys to jump through hoops to get the rent in? No. They would get a regular check from me because I’m not going to the bank and waiting in line just to get a bank check (and I’m not paying the fee for a money order or bank check). What happens when the portal is fixed? It’s not going to pull your money is it (so paying rent twice)?

    My bathroom woes with the Fresno apt continues. The damn flush lever is so rusty that the chain broke through the first two holes. I got sick of waiting and bought a new set up myself. I'm also finally changing out both toilet seat hinges rather than just working with the new bolts P got months ago. The seat still moves and needs to stop.

    I fixed my toilet and just sent the receipt with my rent minus the cost more than once in my shitty apt. I dunno about CA but MI law allows it easily.

    It didn't work. The hinge replacement kit doesn't line up the same way as the existing hinges. Fuck it, I'm just gonna get a new toilet seat.

    I will lose it if they do!

    That's what I was thinking! The portal got fixed this afternoon and it pulled my auto payment! I'm glad we didn't go pay, I'm out of town anyway and J was working so we wouldn't have been able to get anything to the office on time. Now we wait to see if they charge a late fee.

    Our landlord's response to COVID: sending all tenants a mobile link to a local paper article on aid, including in the URL cash-grants-for-poor-families

    My man, PR is not your strong suit.

    Haha yep. It’s a weird time but our realtor is amazing and no-nonsense and wouldn’t let me do anything she didn’t agree with (she’s known me since I was a baby). While it’s a lot more online than it would be otherwise, we know the neighborhoods from being here so that’s great.

    That sucks.

    I’m annoyed I just got an email that I have a past due balance on my account? I have autopay setup via our management company. Apparently they charged late on ultilities so my autopay only covered rent because that was the only thing they charged my account? HOW AM I LATE? You didn’t bill me before my payment was due? So you bill after but somehow I’m late to the due date that was before the bill?

    Ours tried to tell us we need to give 60 days notice.

    We don’t. Also there’s been a hole in our ceiling since like November with a trash bag taped over it so it they think showing this place is happening anytime soon...
