    so i must have the best luck in the universe right now. first my building managers decide to just walk into my apartment with the reasoning "they smelt smoke". that made me mad. then my brand new phone that i just got saturday, was stuck in a boot loop. i was able to fix that. now, after everything that has happened my same phone that i just fixed got knocked into some water. GAH i got the best luck in the word. best thing is i think my insurance plan is going to charge me more for the replacement than what i paid for the phone.... im so depressed about all the going ons lately its not funny.... my shrimp wont even cheer me up....

    Aww...I hope things only get better for you soon! That's upsetting to have so many nasty things happen in a short period of time - and not even your shrimp can help you out - blah.

    Did they really smell smoke, or was that just an excuse? Perhaps there is something going on with the electrical wiring that merits concern. Was there something too close to a heater or something overheating on the stove?

    If I were you, I would have asked them if they found the problem, and if they could fix it (if it's wiring).

    I can't imagine the managers just walking in to invade your privacy, but I suppose it could happen -- like doing a surprise inspection to find out what you've been up to. It would seem pretty devious, to me.

    If there are fire safety issues in your residence, you really should be concerned and glad that someone else has noticed and decided to investigate.

    Just my thoughts ...

    Paranoid much?

    Gen, breaking a new phone does suck and I am sorry that happened, but let's put this in perspective. If the worst things that have happened to you today are someone walked into your apartment and you broke your phone you are doing pretty well.
    I have a friend who's apartment was broken into and he lost everything, including his life.
    I have a friend who was hit by a car last night and he still can't feel his legs.
    I have another friend who's child has recently been diagnosed with lupus.
    I know another fellow who's family steals his disability check and he can't buy food or pay his bills.
    I had a neighbor last year who couldn't be bothered to take care of her 7 year old son because she was too busy looking for a man to pay her way. I took care of her son until they moved and I think about that little one all the time.
    None of these are my personal problems but I am the one they all come too to hold their hands through it all and it sure does put what little issues I do have in perspective. So your apartment manager walked into your apartment and you broke your phone, deal with it.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Good points, Mommy!

    No matter how bad off we think we are, there is always someone else much worse off.

    actually they have been doing these surprise inspections ALOT lately. there was no smoke in my apartment, and they are refusing to fix my wiring in my app they have 7 plugs all within 3 feet of a water source (sinks tubs toilets) and they are all labeled as gfci, not a single one passes a gfci tester and none have the little test and reset button. they also claim that if there was a fire blocking the only way out of my building i can escape by jumping 25 out of a window into a very shallow but swift moving river. they refused too so many request for safety but im stuck for a place to live for the moment because my mom is too sick to do any moving. there is in fact some bullying going on at this place. and im not the only one they are doing this too. seems like all the long term residents are getting inspections on a biweekly routine. there is complaints in the work and there's also a lot more going on in the back of just my phone breaking that i dont like to talk about.

    i do understand there are countless other people who have it way worst than i do. i truely understand that point and im not looking for pitty, just a place to rant more than anything. im sorry if it sounded like i was looking for pitty...
