Just a quick update. I am still dealing with the plumbing issues in my bathroom (still no water) and worse, the combination of mud and mold and mouse turds and cockroach dust have made my allergies and asthma flare up to the point where they are nearly impossible to deal with right now, even though I am taking every over-the-counter antihistamine that I can possibly get my hands on.
Not only that, but when I got home last night, I saw a mouse running around my apartment — I suspect it entered through the hole in my bathroom wall since I haven’t had any mice in months now.
Because the building super promised that I would have water by Monday afternoon, I reported the landlord to the city of New York for this little problem and the inspector showed up today — the city is more prompt than the building super, the plumber, and landlord are!
Because I have a very unstable wifi connection available to piggyback on (if I am lucky) while in my apartment, I was unable to spend any time on my blog, so my entire day was, once again, completely wasted.
Anyway, as things stand, it is Tuesday night and I still don’t have the use of my bathroom, and I have no idea if the mouse is still in my apartment. I am going to demand a rent reduction from the landlord because of this.
