Ho hum.  
I am horribly sleepy today. I've been wanting a nap for the past 4 hours or so, but have resisted so that I will hopefully go to bed at a decent hour. Hopefully I can manage to stay up for another 4 hours (as I yawn hugely).

The apartment situation is pissing me off. Yesterday I found out that the place my brother used to live STILL had not faxed back his previous rental information, so I told him he had to go over there and wait while they filled out the damn form and faxed it back. He went over there, but the woman told him that his info was not in the computer. It might be in old files in the attic, but SHE wasn't going up there - Maintenance would have to do it. So my brother said for her to call Maintenance while he waited and she refused, saying it would take a week. My brother left shortly after that, having gotten no further. I don't know what the hell is wrong with these people. Is common courtesy so fucking hard? This is something they're supposed to do - it's part of their jobs. So tomorrow my brother is going over there before work and talking to the manager. If he doesn't get this taken care of, I will be going over there next weekend - and they don't want that. I can be a major league bitch if the situation warrants it, and I think this one very much does. >:0!!!!

Other than trying to get that settled, I have read a lot and helped Mom pack, because since the power issues Thursday the internet has been intermittent at best. Sometimes a web page will load within a couple of minutes - the rest of the time it just times out completely. I really wonder if this will post once I'm done typing. -.-

Oh hey - I just fell asleep for a minute trying to figure out what to say, so I guess that's enough.
 
 
I feel: sleepysleepy

Moving sucks.
Question, did he live in a corporately owned complex? If he did, you can call the corporate office, tell them you have a lease pending, the length of time you've waited for the information (and include the week that the "charming" woman said it would take to find the info), and very politely say you really dont want to contact your attorney to discuss this matter but if it drags out you will. Saying it nonchalantly is best, more believable. I used to be princess of bluffing. If the place is not corporately owned, call the housing authority and find out how long a property has, by law, to provide requested information.

I hope that helps. I hate moving, it's such a hassle. And the people in charge rarely make it easy on you.
Good luck and I hope you get it straightened out soon. The floor plans you have on LJ are amazing-so HUGE!

Re: Moving sucks.
*grins* Both of those links are to agencies that help people with low-income needs for housing, so I'm afraid they're of no use to me. I have found the name of the management company, but it's not a name I'm familiar with. We'll see what happens when my brother goes over there today, but I'm really tired of this crap. -.-

Re: Moving sucks.
I'm Sorry. I thought perhaps they had renter's information/rights on their site. :(
I used to work for an apartment complex and i know they had a timeframe within which they had to respond for information requests. But that was in florida, unfortunately I dont know if that's federal or state mandated. Good luck though. I wish my info had been more helpful :(

Re: Moving sucks.
No need to apologize - I was very amused. I haven't heard from my brother yet - I hope he went over there like he said he would. -.-

Re: Moving sucks.
I rented CoS this weekend. I have decided I need a Gryffendor(sp) scarf for this winter :) LOL....do they make them for grown-ups?

Re: Moving sucks.
They do, actually, although now you can only find them on EBay. My solution was to have someone knit one for me, although I ordered it more than 6 months ago I still haven't received it. Hopefully I'll get it before winter comes.
