The lesson

  Some people, you know who you are Christa, so I will not mention her by name.  Have compelled me to add a journal entry!!! lollol                                                The lesson   Christmas day evening my heater failed.  I called the emergency number given me by the management company for just such emergencies and a young guy of about twenty five showed up about 7pm to fix it.  He worked on it for about an hour and said that he could not fix it but that he would be back in the morning to finish fixing it.  He needed a part and could not get into the maintenance office that evening.  I asked him if I should go spend the evening with a friend to avoid the cold and he said "no that would not be necessary as it would not get below 60 degree's in my apartment because of the unit downstairs running their heat."  It sounded pretty reasonable to me so I threw an extra blanket on the bed and went about my normal business.  I woke up the next morning freezing!!!!!!  I remember that I happened to look at my glass of ice water that I always take to bed with me and there were just as many ice cubes in it as when I had out it there 8 hours before.  I went in the kitchen and turned on the oven full blast to warm my frozen bones!!!!! It had gotten down to thirty degree's outside and I do not know what the temperature was inside my place but it was cold!!!  At quarter past eleven I called the guy and asked him where the hell he was!  I couldn't believe it as I had woken him up!!!!  He showed up a few minute later and worked on the unit for about six hours.  He said that he was going home to eat supper and he would be back in a hour to finish fixing it.  An hour passed and I called to find out where he was.  No answer, two hours later, no guy, no answer on the emergency line.  Three hours later no guy,no answer.He has told me that he could not work on the heating unit unless the tenant was there.  So up went the oven and I figured another cold night!   I called him on the hour every hour on Sunday.  He was ducking my calls I assumed.  I am friends with the people that manage these apartments as I believe that if you are going to live in a complex then you should be friends with the people that run it.  My goal and theirs is the same.  They want a tenant that pays his rent on time.  Makes little or no noise and keeps a clean place.  I want to live in a complex where everything that is supposed to work does and they neighbors are nice.  Therefore because we want the same things we are in the same side.  Monday morning arrives and I wait a bit till almost noon to go to the office and express my dissatisfaction at how I was treated.  I am so angry that I an strangely calm but I took notes on what had transpired.  I sit down with the manager and express how I am angry for three main reasons.  1,  The heater was still not fixed.  2, I had been lied to and ducked.  3,  It was her I was supposed to yell at and that was not right!!!!!  So that day the heater got fixed, it took less than an hour when it was done by a competent maintenance guy.  The man that was on emergency duty was badly written up, I wanted him fired and they agree that I was due some compensation on my rent for the increased electricity bill I would be getting.  A couple of days later the manager called and asked me if she could send the same guy up to my place to fix a backed up sink.  I said no, do not ever send that guy to my place again as he did not even apologize for lying to me in the first place.  What do you guys think?  Handled correctly or not?????????
