Dear reader, a hole
There’s a hole in my wall. Actually, there’s a hole in TWO walls: my kitchen and the adjacent bed/living room. But it’s the same hole. I came home just now and saw it. The walls are a little water damaged, too. The janitor came up a few minutes later and explained, although he’s only able to do so with a lot of gesturing and bizarre pronouns. The hot water pipe, she was leaking! She was pouring water down the walls! Apparently he had to rip down some of my kitchen shelves and hack through the walls to get to the damn bitch.
I guess it could have been worse. It’s weird because I just cleaned my whole place yesterday, so everything is very orderly and completely fucked up at the same time. Now I have to figure out a place to stash my dozens of cutesy kitchen jars and figure out what got broken. Supposedly everything will be fixed and painted in the next few days. I wonder how much, if anything, I should deduct from my rent. Anyone have experience with this kind of thing?
