Landlording

Had an annoying phone call from the real estate agent today.  They want me to pay for new blinds because some slats have broken on the old ones.  Now when I was living there, some slats broke (ok they're a pretty crap design - only held on by a tiny piece of plastic at the top).  But this was because I had the windows open and the blinds closed.  Wind blows, stresses plastic, plastic breaks.  So I fixed them before I moved out ($80 for 20 new slats - I only needed five but there was a minimum number and I thought I may as well have a few spares.  But only for the windows, not the longer ones in the living room).  

What this means is that the tenants have been doing the same thing - having the windows open and the blinds closed.  And now I have to pay for it.  *sigh* #firstworldproblems

Hypochondria?

Picture the situation:

Small sealed training room.  Ten people crowded in.  The person sitting next to you is coughing and spluttering and *breathing* all over the place.

Yeah pretty pissed off at the moment.  I feel like my throat is a bit sore but don't know if I'm just imagining it.  All I know is that if I *do* get sick, it'll be just in time for the weekend.

People suck.
