The Irresponsible Landlord

I’m absolutely furious with my landlord. I live in the deep south and in the middle of summer, my a/c dies. It died on a Friday morning and I called my landlord right away. He still didn’t come over until after lunch time. By then, the house was scorching. This house has a self contained HVAC unit and I heard my landlord outside beating and banging on it. After about an hour, he tried to get his personal HVAC technician to come out and look at it, but, the man couldn’t be out before Monday. My landlord offered me a couple of window air conditioners and I accepted. By this time, I was getting pretty mad. Why couldn’t my landlord call another HVAC technician who will come out on weekends? Because he was too cheap to pay the overtime, I’m sure. I ended up hating those window air conditioners. They were so loud! I couldn’t sleep. I called my landlord. Knowing that he had many properties, I thought that he might have a couple of quieter air conditioners but he dodged my calls all weekend. He did a good job of avoiding me. On Monday, the HVAC technician came. A part needed to be ordered to get me up and running. He stood outside my door and called my house phone and left a message giving me the bad news, knowing that I wasn’t home, because he didn’t want to face me.. He still wouldn’t return my calls. I thought about renting a motel room and taking the price out of the rent. The window air conditioners were still keeping me from sleeping and I was exhausted. Somehow my landlord managed to get my a/c fixed without running into me, but rent is due tomorrow. I can’t wait to see him.
