Ok, first off, I posted some pics from the holiday party if you are interested, check out that old post.
Ok, so this happens to us much more frequently than it seems like it should.
Last night Matty was doing his sit-ups and says "Hey, can I ask you something?" and I say "Uh huh" and keep doing what I was doing, at the time, Christmas shopping online for my godson. And he says "Does that hole in the wall look familiar?"
Now, generally walls are things that should not have holes. Especially unfamiliar holes. In my opinion anyway. Plus, the way he was looking, I didnt remember there being a hole there.
So I look up and there is in fact a hole. But not a wall-crumbing-down hole. A man made hole. With an open metal box and red wires inside (and hanging out) of it. Near the ceiling, behind the couch. A hole. With wires. The only thing we know that is supposed to be done in the apartment is a light being put in the ceiling of the shower. This is directly below the shower. But below. And there are lights in the bathroom. So why would a hole need to be made in the living room wall? Plus, we were told that no work would be done in the shower until after the new year. AND all the recent work that has been done in the apartment has been messy. But there was no new drywall dust, no moved furniture.
So I was generally freaked out.
But here's the thing. This isnt the first time something like this has happened. Back when the first hole was made in the living room ceiling to "fix" the shower leak we (me and our landlords) moved the couch in order to put a ladder up. And there was a 1 foot by 1 foot piece of carpet missing. From under the couch. We later found out that it was because an idiot insurance agent took it. When the first plumber came out to look at the shower, we found a hole in the ceiling where he apparently stuck his finger through the soft spot made by the drip. We came home one day from work and found that the tree that used to be behind our backyard fence was gone. As was the fence.
Does this happen to other people? Things disappearing. Or appearing in their apartment?
Ok, so when I uploaded the picture I noticed the weird discoloration of the paint. You cant see that just looking at it. So did they put in a hole, and then repaint and somehow manage to not completely destroy our couch?
