Dear old Auntie Mephit here with a little life tip for you: if you rent an apartment be a Good Tenant. Don't remove the smoke detectors or light fixtures, don't neglect to take rubbish and recycling out, please do not leave food absolutely everywhere and half-full bottles of ... I'm really not sure what... all over the apartment. If your landlord says you can have a cat don't decide that 2 more cats are fine without asking and for the love of all that is good and pure: CLEAN UP anything that is sticky or disgusting and gets on the floor. When you move out take all your stuff with you and don't leave over half a dozen bags of garbage strewn about the kitchen or approximately 50-60 empty plastic bottles and jugs, or more than a dozen empty wine bottles. Containers of pudding jammed under a heater? No, do not do this. Ditto hanging home-cured animal skins tacked to the bedroom walls! What even WAS that? a fox?
I spent over 4 hours bagging and taking out trash, scrubbing a still-filthy tub, scraping cat shit off the floors and sweeping up debris and garbage. I'm supposed to SHOW this apartment tonight! I needed to do homework today but instead I waded around in trash and filth exhausting myself cleaning up after people who must have lived like pigs in our dear little apartment. Then I discovered the worse garbage stacked outside BOTH doors to the place. (I went in through an interior door, this apartment is in our house) Supposedly the tenants are coming back this weekend to get the rest of their things and clean the place and pay December's rent which they promised to do.
I've had a very stupid day. Thank you for letting me vent.
