But Anyway by Blues Traveler

Yesterday was crazy, up and down. I wrote lots of half blog posts, and then I came home, and realized that my bathroom had no bathroom inside.

Apparently, at around 1pm my landlord decided that they wanted to replace the floor in my bathroom. Apparently my toilet had been leaking underneath the linoleum and it was rotten. How they figured that out, I don't know. But it was true. So they took out the toilet, soaking my bathroom (again!) and getting sewage on some of the laundry that I had left in there. I guess this is why hampers were invented. Jeffrey was home for about 5 minutes but had to rush off to a meeting. They didn't talk to him, or even let him get the clothes out of the bathroom.

The maintenance men leave at 5pm. So does the landlord. We got home at about 5:15 to find the bathroom door in the living room, the toilet in the bathtub, dirty clothes in the sink. A dirty bathmat on the living room floor. And no note. And nothing covering the toilet drain. You ALWAYS cover the toilet hole. I learned that when I was about 8 years old. If you don't cover it you house will fill up with methane.

Not. Cool. I thought "maybe they went out to get a new wax ring for the toilet," my dad said "maybe they took a dinner break." We called the emergency maintenance line (no one answers the regular line after 5) and got no answer. It becomes 6pm. Then almost 7. We decided to go out. Somewhere with public bathrooms, since we couldn't use one at home. Fast food. Wal-mart. 9pm the maintenance people FINALLY call us back. What if it had been a REAL emergency? They told us they'd pay for a hotel. It was late. We decided not to bother.

It sucks that we have no toilet and no bathtub. I do not approve.

On the bright side, yesterday my new ipod came in the mail. And so did the new sim card for my cell phone. YAY!

They got it fixed finally. But last night and this morning weren't fun. If they had just TOLD us in advance, it wouldn't have been too much of a problem.
