Hobbes is getting waaaay friendlier than he was. He loves running on the wheel, he galumphs on it all night long.
Well, window repair place #1 just left, they said it would be $655, which is about what I expected it’d cost to replace (it’s a huge window). The guy made me really uncomfortable, he kept making references to how I didn’t want uninsured people coming in to work on it because I am “an attractive young woman living alone”…like, what, a local place is going to hire rapists to come fix my window? He showed me samples of the windows they have & they were all REALLY nice, way, way nicer than this crappy window that’s currently installed, I don’t need anything anywhere near that nice.
He thought I owned the home & he was making me so anxious that I didn’t feel like correcting him. I am pretty sure I’m not going to go with them. I have another big box store coming out tomorrow & assuming their person is nicer, I’m going to tell him up front I want the very cheapest possible, because what’s in there is the worst glass possible.
I want to be honest & say that I’m just renting the place so that they don’t push so hard to upsell to me, but I’m not sure if legally I’m even supposed to be dealing with them? I don’t want my landlord to find out because I have a really crappy landlord & I’m worried he’ll go with something really expensive & make me pay for it, so I’d like to keep this all quiet & just dealt with between me & the window repair people, but I’m scared that for liability reasons, they’re going to make me call the landlord or something. I’m not trying to sneak anything over on the landlord, if it was a nice window, I’d get it replaced with something of equal value, but I feel like since it’s a crap window, no one is going to know if I replace it with an equally crap window. UGH WHY DID THIS HAPPEN
Hi, I’m Lisa and I have too many baby rats.
I have given up trying to make temporary modifications to my home to make it appear as if I am anything other than a lonely animal hoarder. The window repairmen coming to give me estimates on replacing the window I broke will just have to come to that conclusion on their own.
I did remember to move the vibrators off the headboard, so that was a plus. And the rat cages are pretty clean.
I already know what social faux pas I will make. They will ask about my rats & I will go “Yeah, they’re famous on the internet!” like I expect people to find that as cool as I do (they never do. ever. they stare at me as if they are trying to decide if I’m dangerouscrazy or just crazy). And they will ask “Oh, whose birthday?” because I have a happy birthday sign that hangs up year-round & instead of telling an elaborate lie about an imaginary fiance who is coming back from vacation tonight, I say “Oh, well, it’s always someone’s birthday! I think it makes things seem festive” AND THAT’S TRUE BUT IT MAKES PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE WHEN I SAY THAT AND I KNOW I SHOULD JUST LIE AND PRETEND IT’S SOMEONE’S BIRTHDAY BUT I JUST WANT SOMEONE TO ADMIT THAT IT’S FESTIVE AND HAPPY TO HAVE BIRTHDAY SIGNS UP YEAR-ROUND.
Kaz is odd-eyed, but you can’t really tell except in certain lighting conditions. His right eye is dark red & his left is black.
