We pay a ridiculously low rent for Calgary standards these days. Landlords are raising rent like crazy all around us, but our landlords seem to know that this place, well…it’s a shithole. The floors slope, the windows are drafty, the carpets are crap, the walls are paper thin, the floors are paper thin, the radiators above us occassionally leak through the ceiling, the radiators in the apartment bang and clang like rhythmless dwarves, it’s dusty, it’s loud (when the Flames win…so been fairly quiet lately..ha!)….etc etc etc. But…we pay about 300-400 less than anyone else I know with an apartment this size…and I’m a student. So.
I found this slipped under the door today:
“We had more leaking into the restaurant [directly below our apartment]…..apparently it has been every day around 10am [when I usually take my shower since classes have ended]….tried to call and warn you but it was imperative we enter the apartment as I was worried about flooding [that’s fair].
….checked your toilet, sink, shower….none of them were the cause of the leaking….only thing we can think of….water is getting on your floor….please try to keep the floors dry after your showers in the morning…”
In other words: there’s holes in the floor so don’t get out of your shower when you’re wet (as I am not a splish splasher or a wish washer).
