And they say customer service doesn't exist here

A brief, nonscientific comparison of maintenance efficiency:

"Hello apartment maintenance, our rooms seem to get quite cold at night and our shower drain is running slowly."
Time to arrival of repair man: less than one hour

"Hello apartment maintenance, my toilet hose is leaking water and requires me to empty a bucket twice a day in order to prevent flooding."
Time to arrival of repair man: three weeks


  1. Yes, they won't let Lobos leave Oakland

  2. Actually that was my place in Columbus... imagine Lobos but replace the malice with idiocy.

    In fact, I just got word that they are trying to bill me for September's water use since they thought I was moving out Sept. 20. I turned my keys in on August 21...
