    Re: WTF Maintenance guy?

    I have rental properties and what took place is very wrong and illegal. You need to think quicker while it is happening and record the incident. Make your landlord or management company know what is going on (record your phone calls, I do). File a complaint. And send a letter certified to the landlord / management company. You can break you lease at any time for what took place. If you like where you are ask for compensation ....

    http://www.iowalegalaid.org/ has a great $20 resource for tenant and landlord. Worth the money. And it would be wise to contact them about this. You may qualify for free help.

    PM if you want to know more.

    To tell you the truth I had just gotten out of bed and was sort of in a haze but I will do this if it happens again. Thanks for the info, I don't think I'm going to pursue anything, but if it happens again I will defiantly do something. Just don't like people like that having keys to my apartment, and I made that extremely clear to my landlord.

    Though i guess technically the prior 'owner' didnt die..

    here I was thinking this was some little old lady. Well, hopefully she's just haunting the friend's place then.

    You're welcome. Formally complain. So if it does happen again you are on record.

    Re: WTF Maintenance guy?

    Maybe I am just naive and lazy (mostly lazy) but I have not changed any locks or garage code on our house we have been in for a year (been meaning to do the garage code though). However the previous owners just moved to the richer part of the neighborhood and are not crazy so I am not worried. Having the security system set up ( that they never used) helps though.

    Nope. Its kind of a sad story, really. Girl was like 24 when she died.

    And its basically just across the street from where that younger realtor got shot by a random dude a couple years ago.

    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    These reminded me of this from Seth Meyers the other night. Can't get it to start at the right time, but go to 2:55.

    Re: WTF Maintenance guy?

    Worked maintenance out at SUV and Freddy court when I was in college. The answering the door totally naked thing didn't really stop much because of the workload system they used at that point. Pretty much had to knock out one thing to go to the next. I never lived off campus but I imagine quality controls were probably significantly worse since as a student I am pretty sure I was making more than the average guy who was not a state employee.

    I did have a calf answer the door in SUV once... don't keep cows in your apartment if you are interested in staying there for an extended period of time.
