Rats.

3 May

Dear NC,

I just wanted to follow up with you. I ended up finding another apartment that was more conducive to exactly what I was looking for. Thank you again for showing me your space, however. You have a lovely apartment.

On another note, I was wondering if you had a recommendation on an apartment cleaning service that could respond at rather quick notice to clean an apartment. Please let me know when you get a chance.

Thanks again,
Kieran

Hi Kieran,

I’m delighted that you found a place! And thank you for the e-mail. I appreciate it.

In fact, I do know of a great apartment cleaning service and am copying the information below. Feel free to mention my name.

Hope everything works out!
NC

NC,

Sorry for bothering you again. The cleaners were fantastic. Thanks for the recommendation!

I was wondering if you knew of a good exterminator and mold specialist? Please let me know.

Thanks,
Kieran

Dear Keiran,

THAT, I don’t know, with apologies. Good heavens, what have you gotten yourself into?

I looked up “conducive.” Wouldn’t you know it, but the fifth entry actually says, “Particularly filthy, moldy, and rat-infested.”

    What about a cleaning service that will come 24 hours a day on short notice, and has expertise in removing blood stains… and doesn’t ask a lot of questions???

    It’s not for me, you understand… it’s for a friend of mine… you know what?… never mind…

    Ugh. Remind me to not use you to find an apartment.

      I’m not in real estate. He had been looking at MY apartment! It’s a double slam! He chose a moldy roach motel over my immaculate home!

        Ah. I misread it. Sorry.

        Maybe you gave him funny looks and scared him away.

      • NC Coot May 3, 2012 at 10:44 pm #

        It’s true. I have to work on my look.

    At least the rats will keep him good company, right? It’s one thing to get an apartment in a rough part of town, but this rat business is horrible and disgusting.

    I’ve been so swamped with end-of-the-semester stuff that I’ve missed out on your recent posts when they came out. As always, they’re such precisely cut gems.

    • NC Coot May 4, 2012 at 8:50 am #

      I had the flu for two weeks. I have a lot of catching up to do on your blog, and frankly, I can’t wait.

      • transparentguy May 4, 2012 at 6:35 pm #

        I hope you’re feeling better. Two weeks? That stinks.

      • NC Coot May 4, 2012 at 7:48 pm #

        Thank you, TPG. Feeling better!
