Numerous people say that they wish to be able to peer into the future, to see how the days ahead will unfold. If I were provided the gift, nevertheless, I would refuse it point-blank. Knowing beforehand about the experience I would need to go through to move into my apartment, for example, would have kept me in my moms and dads’ house forever. My little child and I are settled in rather happily now, however the procedure of moving then was undoubtedly painful.
I confronted issues with the property manager, with the condition of the apartment or condo, and with the day of moving itself.
First of all, I needed to deal with the obstacles the landlord positioned in my course. Something he demanded was big amount of cash paid ahead of time. The proprietor intentionally increased the sum of cash and forced me to pay it immediately in a few weeks. The idea of paying these atrociously high rental costs was horrible for a mom who had a low salary like me.
I also argued with the proprietor over repair work I felt he should make before I moved in. The condition in this house was a mayhem. The pipes were leaking, the surface of the wall was irregular and so on. I must have a well-kept home because I had actually paid a large amount of cash. The situation in your home was so awful that I couldn’t bear it. After we had lastly settled these issues, I almost lost the house when the landlord found that I was moving in with a three-year-old.
The property manager hesitated that my daughter would make a mess of your house and literally destroyed the entire apartment or condo. It was real that a lot of kids around were naughty but he must not think that my daughter was without exception.
Second, I faced an almost overwhelming problem cleaning the mess left by the previous tenants. There was a great deal of trash both inside the apartment and on the outdoor patio. There were broken lamps, heaps of trash, spoiled sofa etc. discarded everywhere in the apartment. There was also a strong and horrible smell in the house not to mention those awful creatures moving in the house in worsening the condition of the house. The awful situation of the house gave me the creeps to live in. The previous tenants had also left several pieces of unwanted furniture in the apartment. The previous tenants cast away their old furniture like spoiled bed, sofas, chairs tables just like that etc. when they left. I had to call the authorities to clear all the unwanted furniture costing me a hundred dollars. This had given me a great burden and so the amount of money that I had paid was totally not worth it.
Last, and perhaps worst of all, were the difficulties I encountered on my day of moving house itself. Friends’ promises to help me with the house-moving and the transportation of furniture seemed to evaporate into thin air. My friends had broken their promises causing me to waste additional money to hire house-movers. Besides, I had to carry all the heavy and large things all by myself without the help of anyone. The weather also disrupted my plans. Due to the terrible weather, I had to change my schedules and wasted my precious time. In addition, the weather had also spoiled some of furniture and brought about a big loss to me. Worst of all, I had underestimated the number of boxes and the amount of time that moving all possessions would demand. The lack of boxes prevented me from packing all my things and forced me to drive all the way down town just to get the extra boxes. Initially, I thought that moving all possessions would not waste a lot time, so I had arranged the time for doing other things which then brought chaos to my schedule.
Moving into this apartment was an experience that left me with many painful memories. If I ever move again, I plan to save myself lots of trouble by applying the lessons I learned from my recent house-moving. In fact I won’t sign any house-renting lease until I find a cooperative landlord, a sparkling clean apartment, and enough money to hire a house-moving truck.
