Avatar    Wed. 8/28/13 12:05pm listener james from westwood:

all i remember from my last move was the fact that the landlord fucked up the gas hookup on my stove. joint smelled like a gasworks and they refused to believe they were the cause. it took a call to the power co. to fix it. 2 weeks of nothing from the landlord, but pse&g got there in 15 min even as they were unfucking fresh tropical storm floyd damage across nj. set the tone for my landlord interactions for several years.

so the moral here is i hope amanda's new landlord is better than mine, and her experience is, aside from taco nights, gas free.

was your landlord a gas fitter? if not, then why was the stupid fuck hooking up a gas line?

glenn: the resident manager/fix-it person who did the landlord's work was a surly do-nothing who couldn't find his own ass in the dark. fortunately he was flushed like a bad turd in the mid-2000s, and some years later the bldg. was bought by a management co. with a staff of very talented maintenance folks.
