Feeling bad for my landlord

I do! Really! Our duplex rental has been an issue every month since we moved in.

In November it was the kitchen faucet constantly leaking.

In December there were squirrels getting into a hole in the attic and abiding in our walls.

In January it was the bathroom faucet constantly leaking.

In February it was the seals on the toilet leaking.

In March ... I've already mentioned the pitbull that comes into our yard because the fence doesn't fully enclose our yard. It's getting into our covered porch. It dragged my stroller out into the yard! He's a friendly enough dog - but he's not used to kids, and he's HUGE! The landlord is supposed to be getting a gate up and talking to the borough about the dog.

And now our water heater is leaking water all over the floor. (((sigh))).

If this were my house I'd be angry! Really glad I'm not! And also... WHAT IS UP WITH THE EXCESS WATER?!?!?! It's almost all water leak issues.

***Update*** The newish water heater is dead. New one arriving this afternoon.


  1. Thank goodness for good landlords... I just had the plumber here this morning for a leaking kitchen sink...
    Have a great day!!

  2. You know, I could probably handle all of that except the dog. That one would push me over the edge. Aside from the fact that it's a pitbull & they SCARE ME TO DEATH, it's just the fact that it's a dog the owners are not properly confining in his own yard & it's making it hard for you to enjoy your own property. That's irritating whether it's a chihuahua or a pitbull!
