Apartment Hunting Nightmare #1

16 Mar

March 16, 2015

Picture this: An affordable apartment in a great neighborhood. You agree to meet the landlord at 1:00 and get there early. By 1:20 she isn’t there. So you call her back and she tells you that she was there, didn’t see you, and left. That doesn’t make sense since you were sitting in your car right in front of the place and never saw her, but this time you get out and stand in the doorway, in the rain , so she doesn’t miss you. A few minutes later she arrives and you go upstairs with her where she tries to unlock the apartment door and fails. The door has a brand new lock, for which she has the key, and a very old lock, for which she doesn’t have the key. She tries to open the door again, you try to open the door, and eventually you both give up. You leave, never having gotten to see the apartment.

True story.

    I feel this is the right apartment for you: an invisible landlord, some mysterious presence locking the door from the inside, and, if you’re lucky, much more. I say get it.

      All I need is a locksmith and I’m in.
