As part of the there’s an oil tanker under my apartment saga, there’s not going to be electricity in my building for the next 24 hours. So I’ve got to drag the content of my refrigerator to work today. Not a good time for the rain.
To add insult to injury, Tower Investments sent out a letter saying that, though there’s going to be 24-hour blackouts in Septemeber in October, we can’t take any discount on our lease until November. What’s so genius about this slight of hand is that most people’s leases are up in September or October and are not renewing, so we have to suffer through the blackouts but don’t get to take anything off our rent. The new people, since they don’t have to suffer the blackouts, won’t get a discount. As for me, my lease is up at the end of this month and I’m trying through craigslist and roommates.com to get out.
