2012 July 09 – I did some more work for ex-wife’s apartment. I also took back two shower safety bars, as I didn’t want to install them in her tiled bathroom because if I cracked a tile, it would be an expensive fix up job. She approached the apartment superintendent and he said that his maintenance man wouldn’t do it either and suggested she find a professional bathroom installed to have it done. She doesn’t want to put out the money, so she is going to look around and see if she can find some with suction cups.
July 14, A week after I arrived in Woodstock, I had the dents and scratches fixed by a local dent repair shop and had sent the invoice to Superstore back in Regina Sask. to get reimbursed. Today I received a cheque in the mail, paid in full. Thank you!
4:30 pm I saw the home owner upstairs talking to one of the other tenants and I complained about the A/C and how it was off and on at different times and also how it fluctuated between operating at different temperatures from 24 – 26 degrees C to 27 to 29 degrees C where it was at the present moment
He gave me all kinds of excuses including blaming the humidity of affecting the newly installed electronic temperature sensor. I looked at him and called him on his BS and he made up another excuse. After he had finished talking to the other tenant, he came out to the deck where I was and said he was going to crank up the A/C as I was hot as a firecracker. About 15 minutes later, the temperature had dropped to 26 degrees C and was still falling.
I was speaking with another tenant and he told me the A/C has always been a problem as is the heat in the wintertime as he often needs to war layers and a sweater to keep warm. I said what about a little space heater, and he said that they don’t allow it. Then on another topic, he went on to say that several times he has heard a noise outside his door, and when he opened it, he has found the owner (woman) just standing there. He said that she would act surprised when he opened the door, but not as surprised as he was to see her standing there at 2:00 in the morning. He also said that it just didn’t happen once and that often, she would be upstairs cleaning and running the vacuum cleaner at 3:00 am in the morning. This place is just keeps getting weirder and weirder.
June 10 Sunday, 5:30 pm I arrived in Woodstock and stayed at my ex-wife’s apartment while I looked for a place to stay. I arrived on Sunday evening and my daughter who was expecting and out visiting friends, went into labour and had boy (Max) 5 lbs 12 oz at around 4:00 am on Monday morning.
June 11, My first order of business was to get my vehicle safety inspected and emissions tested so that I could get it licensed. It passed with flying colours, but I had a haste with a woman at the license place who tried to make me believe that the Saskatchewan dealer never gave me the proper papers.
I called the dealer and while he was on the phone, I tried to get her to talk to him so that he could send down the missing papers, but she refused. She reluctantly said she would call head office while I waited to the side. I thanked the salesman from Regina Honda for his time and ended the call and waited.
It turned out that while she was on the telephone, I overheard the ignorant bitch say that she had never registered a vehicle from Saskatchewan. She then asked me for the same papers I gave her before and not saying a word, she did her job as she was walked through the process. She then tried to charge me GST that I had already paid in Saskatchewan and I called her on that, and she quietly corrected her mistake. There was no need to say anything more as she knew, her co-workers knew and all the 15 people waiting in line knew that she had fucked up as I overheard those that had been in line when I was having the issue, tell the others who were asking what the problem was.
June 13, I found a place and will be moving in on June 14. It’s an old Victorian house with 5 rooms on the second floor that are being rented out. There are presently two young guys and one woman living there and another woman will be moving in on Saturday. I have one of the largest rooms, measuring about 15 x 15 feet with a closet. It also has a queen size bed, night table, dresser, bookshelf, computer table, small drop-leaf table with two chairs, a small bar fridge, LCD TV, cable TV and wireless internet. We all share the kitchen and washroom that are also quite large.
