Heart Attack Waiting To Happen


Last night I got out of the shower and there was a knock on my front door.

With my hair still wrapped in a towel I opened the door and my nieghbor lady downstairs and some guy I have never seen before were standing there.

“You have a leak!”

The first words out of her mouth. Then she w plained he was a contractor and could show me.

Fine. My heart flipped out. I changed my clothes and met them back outside.

We all walked down to “my leak”.

I have been here long enough to first keep my mouth shut and second get Stan, the man that has been here 40 years and knows everything about every building.

I called him and he came and explained it was air conditioning run off. Not my problem.

You have to know that when I first moved in here that same unit, different owner sued me and the HOA for water damage that cost me 20,000 to fight.

This is why I don’t think I can stay here longer than two more years because its a lawsuit waiting to happen!

I didn’t sleep a wink last night! This could get ugly.

  1. My advice: ask Stan to drop you an email with a quick description of what happened and what caused it. Send a note with the same to downstairs lady – be nice, but reitirate that this isnt on you. You do not want a situation six months from now when you have to explain that no, you don’t have leak; yes, it is the air conditioning.

    Be nice, but document.
