For future reference I would like to state to all of you as my witnesses that I am totally writing the BBB, Columbus Housing Board, my apartment complexes corporate office, and any newspaper that will have anything to do with me.
Just an update: two more calls later, talking directly with Eric (maintenance guy who said he'd be out in an hour), and waiting waiting waiting...and no one. NO ONE. Did I mention not a single person seems to care that their property may be falling down!? Turns out we're one of FOUR units experiencing the same thing. The lady at the office gave him the wrong address (HOW HARD IS YOUR JOB LADY FOR FECKS SAKE). I'm sitting here and the dripping has slowed to a stop, almost...it's refreezing for the night. Tomorrow morning we may not have a ceiling...
Can I also call out for people without children to stop exclaiming what is wrong with the way this person or that person is "effing up" their children. For real, do you have kids yourself? I mean a kid in your face 24/7 365? NO? OK then...all you have are IDEAS that have no basis in REALITY. Unless you've been Super Nanny get out of my face with your BS psycho babble (that you read about or heard about somewhere without doing extensive fact checking or looking at opposing view points) about how if your kid looks at the color salmon for longer than five minutes a day they'll become brain-dead, K? K!
If it's not blatant abuse verbal, sexual, or physical...keep your nose out of other people's business and your snarky ass remarks contained to your own family and your own home. I understand general concern for the physical/mental well-being of any child, it's natural...but seriously, if a parent can keep their child busy doing something for 15 minutes so they can fold a load of laundry, or finish up dinner, BRAVO to them for being able to clean, make dinner, and raise a kiddo. Not to mention those working or single moms. I won't tell you how to raise yours if you stay out of my face about mine.
Pretend we each have hamsters and use different food and bedding but all in all our hamsters are happy and healthy and love to play with each other. Suggestions are always welcome but shoulda woulda coulda's can find their way to the door. Ahhhthankyouverymuch.
