I'm bored, or something - too tired to bitch

I don't really have anything great to post about. The manager of the complex here just screwed all of the tenants and I'm a bit pissed. The owner was going to raise the rent x dollars and the manager decided in her befuddled brain that it would be a good idea to penalize people if they didn't sign a 12 month lease by making the rent for them higher. "Well, the (enormous corporation) across the way does it". I tried to explain that it was a bad idea, but, the owner took one look and decided that it was a good thing. The only thing the owner did correctly was to phrase it to sound like you get a discount if you sign a 12 month lease. In all the years this woman has owned the property, she has always made the rent for current tenants lower than that of tenants just moving in by about $50.00 - not now. Well, unless you want to commit to staying for a year. Part of me can't wait for the bottom to drop out of the oil boom, just to get rents and housing prices back under control.

Anyway....here is a better photo of my eye, that shows the actual colour.

And I have been playing, so tell me what you think of this.

Have a good day all.

Your manager sounds like she is lacking in certain areas.

Meanwhile, interesting eye photo. The final pic looks like the eye of a cartoon superhero.

Wow, your eyes are such a beautiful color!

And it's so funny from a U.S. perspective where the economy is tanking to hear about "booms." But it's a reminder that "booms" aren't always such a great thing for everyone.

woohoo, greenish!

Gee, the manager struck me as fairly sensible the one time I met her - guess you can't always tell by first impressions.....

Love the eye photos.

Leah, the woman can't even write up the receipts and tenant cards without making a mistake and so many other things.

I realized last night what I wanted to do to the eye, so I may post the next changes again later.

Thanks Crabby, they sometimes appear blue too, or so I've been told. If everyone's wages kept up with the rents and so on, it wouldn't be so bad.

Gary, yep, sorta like Spikes.

Sis, she has limited math skills and no accounting skills. We won't even go into her English mangling.
Glad you like the eye photos.

The complex I live in used to have a policy where current residents won't have any rent increases as long as they keep signing 12 month leases. Now they've dropped that and raised the rent on everyone regardless of how long you've lived here. So, a number of their long-term residents have moved out. They let the long-term people who they KNOW are good residents go and are taking chances on new residents. Doesn't seem all that smart to me.

Cool eye pic.

Reb said...

Jay, that is kind of stupid on the part of the owners.

We have so many people looking for places to rent here that they don't care. They know that none of the suites will be empty long enough for the carpets to dry.

You have fabulous eyes.

The complex mamager is a jerk!


Reb said...

Thanks Terrie. Yes, she can be very trying at times.

Hilary said...

Sorry to hear that you're dealing with stupidity in what's both work and home for you.

The cartoon-like eye is great. Isn't it fun playing with Photoshop (or similar)?

Reb said...

Hilary, thanks. Yes, I love Photoshop!

Tink said...

I would trade my pinky toe for your eye color. So beautiful! I love the last shot. Very artistic and a little lionish. ;)

Reb said...

Thanks Tink! I think you can just get coloured contacts though and keep your baby toes. ;)
