- Wedding: November 2014
We have to be out of our current apartment before the 1st. We picked up our keys to the new place yesterday around 5 pm, and were going to move some small stuff last night and get the Uhaul this morning, and then spend a couple of days cleaning the old place.
So we get our keys and head over to the place. We open up the door and the carpets are absolutely disgusting and unacceptable. We knew they wouldn’t be “new”, but the property manager had assured us that they clean the carpets and if necessary replace.
They had been cleaned, alright, and were actually still damp. However, in every single room, both upstairs and downstairs (townhouse), there were at least 2-3 large yellow or green stains. They honestly looked like somebody let their pet or baby puke or shit on the carpet and never bothered to clean it up. I couldn’t even take my shoes off to do the walk through, and we don’t wear shoes inside.
Bright side is we called the property manager before she left the office, and she came over and agreed it was unacceptable. We are getting new carpet installed in the whole place, BUT, she can’t call until Monday. We are crossing our fingers that they can install the carpet Monday afternoon, or at the latest Tuesday. Otherwise we are going to have to load up our Uhaul and stay the night at a motel.
To top it off, I scheduled my orientation for my new job on Tuesday, so I will be gone the entire afternoon, leaving only SO to move us, since all of our friends are either moving as well or out of town. He’s had to beg work for another day or two off, since he originally had this weekend through Monday off to move.
I’m just so stressed out. We are going to try to clean the apartment best we can with all of our stuff still here, but it would be so much easier if it were empty! AHHHHHH. Oh, and, icing on the cake (though certainly not my biggest concern at the moment): this pushes the proposal back by at least a week, since he wants to wait until we are settled in the new place. FML.
