Well, where are we?
I still need to mow my lawn. It’s been raining and even though I tried to get up early this AM, it was too wet w/ dew to mow. I guess I will have to wait until Monday and do it then. Supposed to be nice until then.
On The Landlord (ex) Front
As I predicted, he is trying to keep the deposit. First it was “Well, you broke your lease.” When I asked his assistant “How?” she said, we didn’t stay long enough… I pointed out that we moved in in Nov. 2008 and it was a 2 year lease. “Hmmm”, says she, “you’re right. I’ll have to ask him.” Now the new
bullshit lie “reason” I can’t have my deposit back is that the lease went to a year’s lease after we stayed past the 2 year mark?! I am gonna dig the lease out and look, but if so, how disingenuous. You would basically have to move out on the anniversary of your move in. I wonder if that’s even legal? IF he does manage to screw me, well, I WILL review it all, naming names and everything that happened w/ him and while there on the ‘Net. Perhaps that sounds dumb, but I know people check them out and a realtor w/ bad reviews is not good. I have acted in good faith through this. I even cleaned the house really good — which I WOULD NOT HAVE BOTHERED WITH if I knew he was really going to try and stiff me like this. Someone I know in the Real Estate biz told me about a good lawyer to check with. I don’t like bullies. Again, I have dealt w/ this in good faith. This guy even told his assistant that the house “Looked pretty good.” Marvy. Gimme ma money.
On the work front
Had a guy go take his drug test today. Talked to another, but he needs his DOT Physical… can’t even interview him until then. Came home to find 2 more prospects — will call them tomorrow! I need, really, at least 1½ drivers. One full time and a part=time fill-in guy. AND, I need a guy who will run every Saturday night, as my one driver says he will run every layover if he can be off Sat night so that he may attend the Temple of Jesús… Weez is a beez tryin’. The letter write thing is still there. Everyone is pissed because now they can’t get days off because one driver got fired over it. Well, not fired, he was part time, not allowed to use him, is a better term. Sad. Getting ready to ramp up for X-Mas Rush I detest Christmas in the P.O. — just makes you nasty. You would too if you were there.
‘Nuff said tonite. Ende
