Laundry days are stressful for me. It has nothing to do with doing a week’s worth of clothes in a half a day. I have that down pat.
The stress comes neighbors. We have the great luck of living in the same building with the most selfish and disrespectful two families I have ever seen.
One of the women in our building has a small washing machine in her apartment. The problem I have with this is that WE are paying for the water used to wash her clothes because the cost of water is split between the apartments.
At the beginning of winter, the landlord gave everyone in the building a letter reminding us to watch our water consumption because the usage had drastically went up. He mentioned that he may have to raise the charges.
I told my husband if the landlord raises our charges I am going to confront him about it. I don’t think it is fair that she washes a couple loads daily (she told me that) using her washing machine in her apartment which will obviously cause her to use more than her share of water. Besides, I do watch my water consumption.
If you think about it all the tenents in the building are paying for the water she uses to wash her clothes in addition to paying to wash ours in the washing machines in the laundry room. As far as I am aware she is the only person that has a washing machine in their apartment.
On top of me paying for her to wash her clothes, she has the nerve to try and hang her clothes up during my wash day.
She pushed my clothes that were already hanging on a line over to the side to hang a pair of her pants up. She never asked if she could use the laundry room on my day to dry her clothes. In the past, I have had to knock on her door twice to tell her to get her clothes down.
These towers belong to the wife of the conceirge who told me last week I could use them on my wash day if I wanted. It saves me from having to dry clothes in our apartment (see photo).
Seeing as my neighbor doesn’t care or respect that it is my day for laundry, I went straight to the conceirge.
The wife of the conceirge immediately went and took all the other woman’s clothes down. It seems my neighbor is doing this to everyone in the building all week long even if she has been told not to. The wife of the conceirge was really upset that my neighbor is doing it to me because I have so much laundry to do.
Today, I am going to tell my neighbor if her clothes are in the washroom on my day I will throw them at her door.
It is the only way she will understand. Believe me. I have had many issues other than laundry with this woman but I haven’t blogged about them.
Once you hear some of the other things she has pulled you will wonder how I have kept my cool this long.
Being direct and mean with this kind of person gets results. It worked with the Grosse Vache upstairs. I haven’t had one issue with Grosse Vache since we clashed last. Now, I will put this other b*tch in her place. I can’t think of a nicer word to describe her.
If she wants to make everyone in the building hate her, she is doing a great job.
I have never had to stand up against neighbors like this in my whole life. I have the craziest neighbors.
We will be very selective when we search for our next apartment.
