Murphy’s law has been kicking my ass as of late. You know, that law that states:
Anything That Can Go Wrong, WILL!
This guy, Murphy, whoever the fuck he is, totally hates me.
Or 2013 just isn’t going to be my year…
I prefer to think Murphy hates me because at least then I have someone to blame.
As if it wasn’t bad enough, my landlord decides to make it worse. We’ve lived in the same house for seven years and never once has she EVER done an inspection. But all of a sudden, she’s gotten a bug up her ass and will be inspecting the house this month.
She said she’d give us 48 hours notice… How kind of her…
hoarders clutter bugs… and while our house isn’t as bad as some, we haven’t quite made it to minimalism as of yet. But we’re working on it. However, we do have 6 cats, and the carpet hasn’t been cleaned in seven years. It’s not pristine if you get my drift. Napalm would be the easiest solution, but I’ll hold off on bombing the place temporarily.
So the landlord goes into this whole long three page text (yes a text message – not a phone call) about how she will ask renters to leave if the place being rented isn’t in good condition. I’ll be honest. We’ve been hiding the fact that we’re…uh… not Christian… from them. But I have a feeling somehow the cat got out of the bag… (pun intended), and they are now looking for ANY reason to get us out of this house.
Unfortunately, I can’t prove anything.
Except that Murphy fucking hates my ass.
Why, you ask? I’ll give you a few reasons:
- Unemployment is taking its sweet ass time, so we’re at the mercy of the state for income at the moment
- Rent is already late
- Landlord wants to do inspections
- Still haven’t gotten my bank account situation resolved
- We have tons of stuff listed on eBay, but only one thing has sold this month
- Knoji screwed me over on my December payment
- Because of Knoji, my phone may get shut off
- I have to renew my license by my birthday which is in March, and I might have to take the written test and possibly even the skills test over again
- My migraines are back with a vengeance
- Our internet keeps going out, just about every hour in fact
I’m sure I could think of more reasons, but at the moment, I’m too tired to think of any more.
Oh ya, I got screwed over by Knoji. They neglected to pay me $29 (which made me $29.00 short of making the phone bill). The reason they gave? I swear these people must think I’m completely stupid. The coupons that generated that $29.00 were apparently revoked. They are basically telling me that EVERY customer who used my coupons in December returned their products which reverses the commission. That’s like 29 people. REALLY? This is not only the first time I’m hearing about this, it’s also the first time it’s ever happened. In the past five months, not one person has returned their product until now? WTF???
I can understand a few people returning their products. But ALL of them? One of the coupons I know for a fact could not be returned because it was for a disposable product, and the company doesn’t allow returns on products that are disposable.
So now I have to deal with that as well. You know, because I didn’t have enough on my plate already….
Plus, I doubt I’ll be writing for Knoji anymore, which means that’s one stream of income down. Yay!
I think Murphy has some sort of vendetta against me… This is going beyond hate!
