He doesn't knock or state that he is maintenance, so I didn't know what the heck was going on.

    So I get up out of bed and check to see who the hell is in my apartment wondering around, I see there is a bucket of paint, so I figure out it is just a maintenance guy. But when I go out to my living room, he is sitting there, on my ******* couch eating my ******* food. When I confront him about it he says that it is his own food that he is eating and not mine. I tell him to get to work or GTFO, and that I will be calling my landlord about this.

    I can only imagine what would have happened if I wasn't here today. I'm not racist but the guy was Mexican and I could hardly understand anything he was saying. I think i scared the **** out of him, but I don't really care.


    Just a story I thought you would all enjoy.
    I need to inform you that according to Holder, Sharpton, Jackson and Obama, you are indeed a racist.

    If you think they are giving out your key willy-nilly, you could ask that they change the locks. Not that that would stop them from just handing out keys to any rando anyway.

    Cripes, do these landlords never watch Criminal Minds?!

    No I personally wouldn't sue, that would be nuts. In seriousness though I would just try to prevent any further issues by making it clear that you know they broke the law and violated that section of the code which should put them on notice that it won't be tolerated in the future. They wouldn't have any argument, some contracted maintenance guy eating your nuts on the couch clearly doesn't constitute an emergency on the landlords part. (twss)

    Yeah they would just give it out again, or do they have a master? I have no clue.....scary to think of how many people might have a key to my apartment.

    Honestly, if he were writing an article about it, it would be seen as racist. The color of the guys skin has no bearing on the story so there is no need to mention it.

    It also breaks the "I'm not racist corollary" which states that the statement said after "I'm not racist" is usually racist.

    He didn't comment on skin color, he commented on the fact he was Mexican and could hardly understand him, which has bearing on the story.

    I like how people feel the need to use the "i'm not racist" disclaimer when saying someone is from Mexico. Has "Mexican" officially become a derogatory term?

    Because if I didn't I would probably be labeled as racist if I said he was "some mexican guy, I could hardly understand what he was saying".

    Re: WTF Maintenance guy?

    That reminds me of the apartment my wife and I moved into out of college right after we got married. Kid you not, we just got done hiking all the boxes up to the 3rd floor and sat down on the couch dreading the unpacking, when the door opens and the previous tenant comes in. He quickly apologizes, quickly backs out, and shuts the door. I ran out into the hallway and down the hall and demanded the key. He was nice about it and handed it over. In his fairness I'm sure he was looking for something he may have left in the move, but still how many skeleton keys are out there in these ramshackle apartments?
