Bedbugs, man. They’re gross. They live in your textiles and eat your blood. And if you roll over on one, they explode and leak your blood and their guts. They’re contagious as all get out, and my apartment has them.
So you’d think the housing agency would be like, yes, let me come in immediately and spray your apartment, we don’t even need you to ask. Because this is a serious liability. Because I could say, I have bedbugs due to your unsanitary conditions (Lord knows I didn’t bring them from America) and I have throw everything out, give me $1000 to replace everything.
Except they’re totally not. I’ve emailed them twice, and they have ignored both emails. It’s been almost a week. You can send a little “We got your email, we are working to come up with a solution.” That would be fine. But to ignore me? I’m paying $450 USD for this apartment a month. A MONTH. Shared room, shared kitchen, shared everything. That buys a pretty dang nice apartment at home, and I know it does here.
I did get an email from them, though. Here’s some highlights:
First of all I would like to apologize for my behaviour yesterday afternoon. I was in your unit, just to see how you were doing, but the first thing I see is full ashtrays in the kitchen. Not amused by this at all, I ‘checked’ your rooms. I guess I could’ve done that in a different manner. I’m sorry. Unfortunately this doesn’t take away the fact that some of you have been smoking inside the building
What a wonderful apology for breaking into our rooms without prior notification as stipulated in the rental agreement! I can feel the sincerity rolling off of this email.
Short Stay Housing Solutions, if you Google yourselves and find this, please know that you need to step it up. I didn’t pitch a fit when you refused to replace our microwave even though it was broken when we moved in. I didn’t pitch a fit when my apartment was filthy when I moved in. But if I get bedbugs, you’d better believe I’ll be in your office, sitting on your fabric chairs, and holding you 100 percent responsible.
