*sigh*

I am at wits end here, folks.  I thought I had found my perfect apartment with hardwoods and old charm and a yard and very nice and laid back landlords.  It turns out that laid back = lazy.

I have had electrical problems in my apt for over a month.  They started out as minor and contained in my bathroom, just weak wiring that quickly needed replacing is what we all thought.  It took them 2 1/2 weeks to even look at it.  At the 3 week mark I am told that the problem is the old fuses aren't able to handle an entertainment center and computer set up in the same apt, so they were going to upgrade my fuses.  It's now been over a month and I'm still waiting.  Plus I'm running my apt on two extension cords and today my refridgerator decided it didn't want to cool anymore.

I lost my temper with my landlord today and threatened him with legal action, which is not a good idea, actually.

I need prayers, energy, anything you can give me so that A. the place gets fixed. B. if it doesn't get fixed I can get the housing authority in there tomorrow to be inspected to see if I can legally get out of my lease with zero penalties C. for me to keep my sanity and temper so that I don't end up being a problem tenant D. if I end up looking for a new place that I can Finally find something that I LIKE and is Properly Maintained. 

I have come to realize in the last 6 months or so that I get bent out of shape a Lot about things and I need to learn to cool down before I say things that get me in trouble.  So there's another prayer right there, ha!

Moving is usually an ordeal for me since I have a large incontenant dog and so I can't just rent anywhere.  Even the thought of having to move again is depressing.  GAH!

So yeah, I'll take any help you all will give me.  I need it.

Energy sent, some of it general for you to use as you will, some earmarked for calmness, sanity, and thinking of the right civil-but-effective thing to say before your mouth opens.

sucky landlords are a real pain. Sad  We had one that didn't fix the gas for a month- and then we moved out.  So I know how you feel.

May the inspector come in, have the teeth to fix it, and may everything from here on out be ducky!  (or any other best possible outcome, but that sounds best from here!)

Sounds like it could be a fire hazard.  You could always get in touch with the owner of the building or have it fixed yourself and send the bill to the owner.  I'm from a small town so things are different.  When I have had a problem I just fixed it and took it out of my rent.  But like I said, I am from a small town where you just do things by way of a handshake, not very many lease agreements are ever signed.

Thanks everyone so much!  The energies were received and Well used!  And as a nice bonus, everything was fixed when I got home, plus I received a new refridgerator (well new to me anyways).  So except for a leaky toilet pipe that I can tighten myself and the re-coating of my kitchen sink which I can also do myself and already have the materials for, my apt is finally back in working order. 

One thing I will say about this ordeal is that I have learned a lesson.  It would be prudent of me to always conduct any maintenance requests in Written Request form only.  That way I have an absolute paper trail for anyone to look over in a dispute.  And it also keeps me from flying off at the mouth, haha!
