Management companies: fountains of caring

Things I cannot do until I get a replacement mail/basement key:

- collect my mail, which may have freelance checks or overdue bills in it
- do laundry in my building
- access anything in my basement storage room

Inconvenience this represents:

- great, since it both deprives me of income and puts me in a precarious financial position
- moderate, since I either have to do without laundry or haul all my stuff across the street to the laundromat
- major, since it's gotten really hot and our fans and air conditioner are currently in storage, as well as a bunch of stuff I intended to sell at our patio sale

Number of telephone calls we have made to the representative of the management company who just bought our building in order to turn it into condos:

- three

Number of times we have actually spoken to him:

- zero

Number of times he has responded to our increasingly desperate e-mails:

- zero

Percentage chance I believe exists that he will actually get back to us and/or replace our keys before our August 1st move-out date:

- 5%

Degree of hatred I have for every management company I have ever had to deal with in my life:

- 100%
