I was hoping I would not have to post something today... but why slack off when faced with a challenge?

I told many people back in October 2009 that they should have just made me complacent... I even reposted it again in October 2009. I will be capable of being quiet if you would just stop giving me a fight to fight.

Hey there,

Could you please send someone by to relight the pilot light in our water heater? We have not had heat nor hot water in our home since late on Saturday. My roommates Katie and Margie have refused to call you about it. Noreen told me she was fleeing for her life on Friday afternoon, but I saw her at the house again yesterday morning when I discovered that she had put string beans in the fridge in the living room and that the water heater was working again. When I got home from the library yesterday, though, she was gone and the water heater was off again. She did leave cigarettes in the back garden again, though. Please turn our heat back on again. It's not like the gas has been shut off or something.

Also, a health inspector stopped by today to make a note of the trash you have insisted on looking at in our back garden instead of actually doing your real job as promised and removing. You are landlords, right?

As a further note on the structural damage I noticed below the fireplace, there is also now structural damage showing in the same wall but behind the refridgerator. Clearly, the wall is unstable, and the first place the damage showed was below the heaviest object in the wall, the closed over fireplace. Now that it is showing in the parts of the wall that do not have heavy objects above them, I suggest you fix the real problem before the east wall of the house collapses. This does not take a genius, but a physicist might best be able to explain the forces at work concerning gravity and the inability of that house to support its own weight. Or an architect... or an inspector. Please let me know if you would like me to help you find one.

Please let me know when you are ready to address these concerns,

P.S. United Utilites has already tested the groundwater in the area. The problems with our tap water are now very clearly a concern for our home only. I was quite relieved to know that the neighborhood was not forced to deal with our specific water problems.
