mojo back



ha... my mama fixed my mojo... i shit you not... i was so depressed, very unlike myself... i absolutely hate being like that... moaning and groaning about every single thing... but yesterday it just all got a bit much and when i arrived to pick up the beasties my mom gave me one look and said...

sugar what's wrong with my baby?...

i know... I'm 36 but dang... my mama's love is just what i needed... she told me "sweets just move... pack your stuff and get the hell out" anyway... biggest stress in my life right now is about to be eliminated... evil landlord... she's really really really pissing me off... long story short... I'm not prepared to pay more for the 2 bedroom place I'm living in right now... she wants more money... and i'm not paying her more... end of story


here's a taste of our daily emails of the last two weeks... reminds me of a tug of war going on...

rent is going up 1 July sweets...

is that right? hmmm... cool... just fix a, b, c and d then i don't have a problem

yeah yeah sweets I'll fix it eventually, but you know it's not my problem that the place has water damage... and with the interest rate hikes, and the special levies... my word the cost of your unit is just sky rocketing... I'll have the body corporate fix it in a few months... but hey i want more rent ok?

screw you evil landlady, the interest rate hikes and all shit is not my problem... there's a reason i don't own my own place, so I'm not paying one more cent until this place is fixed...

so that's where we are at... me giving notice... i really don't need this in my life right now... so there! stick that in your pipe and smoke it you evil woman :)

Ruby said...

you go girl!!!! mommy's love is always the best when you're going through a tough time by the way;)

Arkwife said...

I agree with Ruby. There's nothing like crying on my mom's shoulder when the weight of the world gets too heavy.

Lemme know if you want to start looking for a new place. I know of a few killer websites that you could check out.

The Jackson Files said...

Oh god, that's awful. I hate house problems.
Last week I got a letter from my downstairs neighbour complaining that Jackson and I make too much noise. This is the THIRD letter of complaint I have had (one about my cat and the other about my laundry), so I guess I am looking for a new place too.

Oh my Sweets!

You want me to recommend a good hitman?? Glugs doesnt do too bad a job.. Hardly left any visible marks..

Woman sounds typical though.. Dont let her get to you.. Claim squatter rights! Find an arb number and quote it.. make her sweat abit.. Its all about who calls chicken first..and whether you can bluff better than she bites...

;-)

arkwife: hey you! yes please anything!!!!

jacks: oh no... !!! maybe it's better; you were looking for a garden anyway!!

sweets said...

bic: you scare me sometimes you know that?! LOL

kyknoord said...

But then you'll have to deal with blocked pipes as well...

phillygirl said...

oh, I soo know what you mean about a Mother's love. it doesn't matter how old you are, your mom is always your mom and I think we all believe they can fix anything for us :)

Good luck in your house hunt. I find that being proactive about practical things that are niggling me is always the fastest way to make me feel better!

AfroSLiQ Diva said...

Aah, shame.... I went through that not so long ago! It'll be over soon soon, Oi but the packing and the moving and the unpacking again is the worst so start now!

Thank the gods for loving mommies that know how to make things seem better then they really are!

Kingcover said...

And after you practiced saying all of that to yourself in the mirror did you send it afterwards??? Hahahahaha *snicker* :-D

sweets said...

kyk: har har :)~

philly: i tend to overdo it a bit... i'm only moving 31 August and i'm already viewing the first place tomorrow!

afro: strange thing is i got all excited yesterday at the thought of throwing half my stuff out... i think i'm sick or something!

king: you just WANT to be spanked don't you??? :)~

sleepyjane said...

I'm glad you feel a little better!! **HUGS** And I'm really sorry about your renting hassles!

Tamara said...

Hehehe... my mom would've taken the land lady's side on principle. She reckons she's helping me to 'toughen up for the real world' or some such nonsense. Maybe you'll find your dream place with a lovely landlady/lord this time round.

I've tagged you, btw.

MsMozi said...

Go sweets!!!!

This is a perfect example of the stuff that's been irking me lately. It seems that as soon margins get a little tight (eg. for the evil landlady) the automatic solution they jump to is: How can I screw someone else over to get myself out of this fix.

Grrrr... oh well, it's they'll just have to deal with the bad karma.

I'll be holding thumbs that you find yourself a mansion at a steal.

Slyde said...

is that a picture of your mom? :)

pure evyl said...

Hope you find a better place or at least a better landlord.

I always hated renting. Now that I own my place, at least I have only myself to bitch at when shit needs fixed.

Grand move!
