I don't know what sort of mooses you've met, but the mooses I hang around with all have their pilot's license.

So, my wife and I went to hopefully sign a 12-month renewal lease for our current apartment. However, before signing, we spoke with the manager because we had some concern about how the management was performing (i.e. taking a long time to do repairs). The manager then told us that she didn't want us as tenant anymore (actually, she said that she hates us) and that if we didn't sign a 12-month lease (without question) then we needed to give her 60 days notice and move out.

I told her that we would take the month-to-month option in our current lease. She then said that we would have to pay an extra $200 dollars a month for the month-to-month option. I then showed her that under the current lease, we only have to pay our current rent and that no where in the lease did it say that we needed to pay an extra $200 dollar. Our apartment manager then got mad, told us that she would have to talk to an attorney (besides me) and stormed off. We paid our rent at our current rate and left (without giving notice that we would move out).

I just annoyed that our manager has to be so irrational about this. I'm not sure why she hates us. We've always paid our rent on time. I think our manager just doesn't likes to deal with tenants that complain (or in our case, tenants who actually read their lease and not allow her to make up what the lease says).

That part seems the most likely. Oh, for a house of my own. Maybe someday, when we're 50.

Today was crappy. The nurse on the morning shift loves to boss everyone around and micromanage the crap out of everyone, and then complain when things don't go smoothly after it's all her fault. She stuck aroudn for 3 hours giving orders today even though she wasn't our charge nurse! And my feet hurt.

Well.... that wasn't too memorable. I never made that post. And I'm pretty sure no one can prove it now.

Harbinger, you could delete your posts, if you wanted. And you probably should, because this thread has gone way off course.

What a racket. Guh. $60 to set up a wireless network. Things like this convince me that I picked the wrong career.

Exactly. I'd like to get paid $60 to plug in cables and power cords. Instead I get paid much less to write about how to plug in those cables.

I decided to be all thrifty and install my high speed internet myself... save $50, I thought. Well, it took me a few days to get it and my router to get along. I even had to call in the help of a friend who works at MIT and goes to my ward. Thank heavens for free tech help from friends!

I'm grumpy because I hate being patient.  I pretty much just suck at it.
