The latest in the Neverending apartment drama is that I've been sent a bill for my next rent and utilities that shows me as still owing utilities and the late fee for the bill that wasn't paid late from last month.



It's like they WANT to make sure no one wants to renew their leases.

I don't have it in me to actually watch the presidential debate, but I'm following tags on tumblr and it sounds like it's going exactly how I expected it to go.



Almost willing to put money on all the media saying Trump was dynamic and passionate and kept getting caught up in the moment, and Hillary being condescending and both Trying Too Hard and just not lika le enough. "Almost" because, I mean, they might actually catch up with reality this time.

One of the problems with working varying kinds of customer service in a call center for 13 years (including periods where I monitored calls) is that you pick up the ability to yell the difference between representatives who are irritating because they have to follow certain procedures and can't only do what you want but don't quite know how to satisfactorily convey "I'm really really sorry I'm doing my best but I have to do it this way or i'll get in trouble!", and customer service representatives who really aren't paying attention and are ignoring anything you say that doesn't fit one or two exact things and doesn't want to explain or discuss things, and knowing the difference makes the latter 1000% more annoying.



For the record, discounting customers who are simply rude and /or jerks* the majority of complaints I hear about customer service reps from people seem to be more likely the former than the latter. Most customer service reps know that they have to do things that annoy their customers, they just don't have an option.



*These are the people I most frequently see with "how I dealt with the rude/annoying customer service person who angered me by doing something that the tiniest bit of critical thinking would reveal to be something they are required to do, so I harassed them at their job now give me a pat on the back" stories.

Viki basically cutting off fanchannels is pretty much sending cdrama fen who need subtitles back to the early 2000s, where you had maybe a 10% chance of a show you wanted to watch getting subtitled, as opposed to the roughly 70% of the last few years.



Ice Fantasy, at least, is safe, and Novoland and Love 020 are completed, I just have to finish watching them. The Mystic Nine is coming from elsewhere anyway, so that's not hurt any, but I may be sunk as far as Sparrow or The Legend of Chusen go, after I finish the episodes that are already subtitled. (Unless someone knows somewhere else to get subbed cdramas these days?)



I suppose I should look at it as a chance to start catching up on my huge backlog, but I don't feel like being that positive about it.

Trying to find a new health insurance plan so that it will go into effect with only a few days between my old one ending (Monday) and the new one starting would be the most emotionally trying things I've done in ages if it weren't for all the (now resolced) apartment issues the last few weeks.

Everyone please offer up whatever prayers or wishes best suit you that I will not throw a screaming hissy fit tomorrow when I call my apartment's office to ask why the new bathroom faucet that I was promised 2 weeks ago (because of a whole from the corrosion I was told not to worry about before) has NOT BEEN put in, even after I called earlier today to ask why not, and was promised it would be taken care of. They did, however, come back to pick up the plumbing parts they left while I was at my parents (thanks to main line problems causing bad clogs ) and mark the work order as completed. I MEAN HI, THERE IS A TWO INCH HOLE IN THE BASE OF THE FAUCET THAT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THERE.



And yes, this is what they weren't doing last week while they were harassing me with late fees for a bill that wasn't even due yet.



Honestly, at this point, if I could afford to, I would move and pay the fee for breaking the lease.

ETA: going to watch season 3,  of Carmilla now (I think the whole season is out?) and hope I end up feeling calmer and less ragey.

Quick note that avistaz has open registration this weekend (and if you see this after that ends, I almost always have invites) as well as a lot of free downloads, but I don’t know when either ends.

Love 020*
The Mystic Nine

I...honestly am not sure what else starts this month? I think K2 starts soon for kdramas and US shows are premiering/returning soon, but have no idea what the dates are for any of them.

*=Finished airing/on hiatus in its country of origin and fully subtitled where applicable, I just haven't finished it yet.
**=Very slowly and sporadically. It's good but I have issues with it. Will probably speed up when the new season starts so i can catch the new episodes when Hulu takes them down.

 Well, the $30 fee at my apartment was a computer error that had everyone making angry calls today. I want to sympathize, but they filled out and posted the notices by hand, and you'd think they would have noticed they were doing dozens of notices instead of the normal handful.

i also had a 1tb external hard drive crash yesterday and am crossing my fingers that running chkdsk will fix it. (It was still running this morning.)

if if that works, then the only bad thing left from yesterday is having to drink coffee flavored herbal tea after grabbing my father's coffee cup to take to work by mistake.
