the long and short of forever
Today is the 6th of the month, the day that rent is late. This month is the first month we've been late paying rent, and it's because of bank/check issues. Tomorrow we'd have everything together to cover the rent and the $75 late fee. This morning, before either of us had time to go to the office to speak with our landlady, there was a note on the door which read: ALL OF YOU, YOU HAVE 3 DAYS TO PAY OR VACATE.
You know, I can understand writing a note that says PLEASE COME TO MY OFFICE, which we were going to do anyway, seeing this was the FIRST DAY and FIRST TIME our rent was ever late. She also chased down my boyfriend while he was running late for the bus, and he told her that he'd gotten the note, planned to speak with her, but had to run now because of the bus. You could've given either of us the time to come down and explain the situation, or asked us politely, considering this is a) the first time we've ever been late with rent and b) the FIRST day in the early morning of lateness. Is it just me?
