For all the contractors out there ....


Read a memo from where I live that construction was going to be done on my building. The memo stated it would start in May and end June 28th.

It is now July 27th and I'm about to lose my #!

There are multiple idiots walking around my apt, and they have been here since 9:00am, this was to put some window surrounds and caulking to the 4 windows I have in my apt. Two of them have asked me how many windows do I have. I explain again (4).

They or mgmt has lost my apt keys 3 times. I recently had a camcorder go missing, my neighbor had them walk in on her while she was sleeping (a door they were not suppose to go in. Her cat was let out of her apt, this was all done on a day that she wasn't notified they would be in her apt. We are suppose to be notified 24 hrs in advance as these are cosmetic improvements.

To top it off, they were talking # on my deck and just leaning there looking at the neighborhood. I filmed them without their knowing, and am thinking of sending the video to their boss.

I have lived through a few construction projects before, but this is the worst. They also put all their tools on my bed and my sons which left some white # all over them so I have to wash them now.


I'm about to snap - Rant over!

If that white stuff is grease, think twice about putting it in the wash.
You may have just found the liquid version of glitter- you can only spread it.

I'm currently renting for the first time in my life, and I must say, it's quite miserable dealing with landlords and the kinds of people they happily let into your life.

I would go the mature and responsible route.

1.) Kill them and bury their bodies in some shallow graves in the woods.

2.) Or you could talk to the apartment management and file a complaint.


But I'd go for the first option. It's the only way to be sure.

They better hope I don't catch them walking around my place at night I sleep next to a baseball bat, and have weapons strategically place just in case.

Caulking would be fine- it dries, and can be picked off.

What you need to be worried about is "white moly grease" - commonly used by people who use tools for a living, but probably less so by the kinds of people installing windows and the like.

It's like liquid glitter- if you put it in the wash, it'll taint the machine and anything that goes into that machine will come out with grease on it.
For months.

Painting a door, from experience, takes 10-15 minutes with a roller in one hand and a brush in the other.
Door trim, on the other hand, can take an hour....

Yeah I know a little Spanish and didn't like a few things I heard. I did live in AZ for a couple and know my swear words. I was videotaping it for my cousin to translate it later. These are the rudest, laziest workers I have ever had the misfortune of being around

I would freak out on them..
Get out of there and buy a House.
And file a complain to their boss and your renter.
And write a online review on a trustscore site
