Our mailboxes here at the apartment are tiny. Like, 3 inches tall by 3 inches wide by about a foot deep. Not much mail fits in comfortably, and I'm pretty confident one of our Netflix DVDs got snapped when they jammed it into the mail slot along with the other junk mail.
So the corporate office is now replacing the people who man the front desk (all locals, who i believe all in fact live in the building) with contractor security guards. Fine. But part of that contract is, they won't accept packages and hold them at the front desk for you. (Since, as you can guess based on the above, no package would fit into those tiny mailboxes.) And their solution for how we can get packages? "Make other arrangements." Starting, oh, Saturday. And they informed us yesterday evening.
We've put up with a lot from this place, but it's formally out of hand now.
The worst part is, the complex itself is fine, and the people are nice. It's all the management company deliberately trying to make living there uncomfortable.
Overcharge us for rent, and possibly screw up our credit? Fine. Keep telling us you'll take care of the problem, and never doing it? OK. Mess up the water about once a week? Sure, whatever. Let's not even discuss the annoyances of Comcast in an apartment situation. But make it so I can't use eBay or Amazon anymore? No, screw you hippies, this will not stand.
Who needs a drink, huh?
