My brother has been talking to the neighbors. I know that once when Andrea lived here, we called to get it looked at - and that was back when it would only happen occasionally (and lightly) after flushing the upstairs bathroom. My brother called again after he moved in and it began to be worse, and was told "it's an old building, the pipes will do that." It only happened a couple few times a day and would last only about two seconds tops, so we could live with it. Now? For about half the day, it honks for about ten seconds (or longer), loud enough to hear outside in the PARKING LOT, and happens approximately every two freaking MINUTES. The neighbor that shares the kitchen wall with us has called and was told "okay, thanks for bringing it to our attention!" My brother has turned in a work order, which we never heard anything about. We also turned in a work order about two weeks ago for the kitchen light - it usually takes up to about twenty tries to get it to turn on. In talking to all our immediate neighbors, they have turned in multiple work orders over the last year, and have never heard word one about them.
As much as I hate to say it, we may need to move soon.
We're currently on a month to month lease, and that's only because the apartment management is being as lax in renewing leases as they are in fixing things. Thus, our lease expired about a year and a half ago. If it's ever brought to their attention, we'll have to sign on for another year. If we don't sign on for another year, our rent will go up about $100 or more - whatever the current rent for a place like this is plus $50 a month for no concrete lease.
With the stupid Jeep on my record, I wouldn't be able to get into a decent place, methinks, and I really don't want to live in the ghetto. Granted, as they're renting to just about anyone anymore, this place is TURNING ghetto, so maybe it's just a matter of time.
Ugh, I'm going cross-eyed from the vibrating and noise, and NOT in a sexual way.
