Reason # 5,236 Why I Hate Renting This Apartment
The power goes out when it rains.
Not when it storms:
When it rains.
Because the water gets into our electrical system, due to faulty wiring. And no matter how many times I complain about this, the apartment office insists they have already fixed it, and continues to pretend it's not happening.
I am writing this from the slow, crappy computer in my bedroom, because my main computer JUST HAD ITS POWER SUPPLY FRIED, despite being connected to a surge protector, by a light drizzle.
Do you suppose a computer power supply is worth a pound of a property manager's flesh?
Metaphorically speaking, of course.
