From faux Monday to Monday from hell.
Yes. I know it’s Wednesday.
Let’s just forget about this loud ass monstrosity of a floor fan that must run all day, all night, all weekend and into next week.
I know. It doesn’t look very big but trust me, it’s loud as fuck.
And let’s forget our “Gomer” maintenance guy’s chop shop repair.
A hole in the dining room. A hole in the kitchen where a ton more water came pouring out between two light fixtures. No worries, right? I’m sure there’s no water in between point A and point B…

So, just to put it together. The loud ass floor fan is on the floor pointed up at the big hole in the dining room with the idea that that small hole in the kitchen will serve as ventilation to dry everything out to prevent mold and the ceiling collapsing.
Uh huh…
Yeah. Let’s forget about all that other jerry-rigged ridiculousness going on up there and let’s take a moment to focus on this close up of our Gomer maintenance guy hard at work.
Yep. That’s our Gomer. And I get to spend the next couple of weeks with him.
I know ladies, be jealous…
I know I said the most challenging aspect of the Whole30 Plan was not being able to have my fancy coffees. I take that back. It’s not being able to have a vat of fucking wine when I need it!
Welcome to my Wednesday, aka, the faux Monday from hell.
Please, share with me some fun stuff that you’re doing that doesn’t involve creepy Gomers in your homes!
Mimi’s quote of the day –
Yep. This is pretty much where I’m at…

    1. Me too Sandee. Omg. This repair guy. Have you ever been trapped in a room with a stupid person who doesn’t know they’re stupid??? That’s this guy.. I can’t wait to be done with my 30 days… Wine is my #1 forbidden fruit!


  1. I had an apt in downtown Sandwich back in the 80s where the bathroom ceiling caved in cause of a leak upstairs. The owner of the bldg took his sweet time about fixing it too and it was so gross. It was a very old house, probably at least 150 years at that point in time, with 5 small apartments. He was a contractor too. My dad actually had to step in and call the guy on my behalf, and that was when it finally got fixed.

  2. That fix might work…maybe. Might be just as easy, fast and cheap to rip out a large section of the ceiling, make sure everything was dry and then put up new dry sheet rock and paint. Not really all that big a job.

  3. Believe I would do as Cranky says. I can’t see much air making it up through that hole. It would be fixed much faster that way too. Did you hire him or the landlord?
    Sorry, there is nothing fun or exciting to relate.

    1. Exactly, SJ but far be it from me to say anything to this Gomer because every time I do he rolls his eyes. And no, I didn’t hire him. He came with the apt. complex. There’s another maintenance guy that is much more knowledgeable and professional and friendly but he’s on rotation at another complex right now. Unfortunately for us… 😦


  4. Poor you!!!!!
    Having circumstances beyond our control which brings strangers in our home feels invasive and flat out shitty.
    We’ve been going through a reno of new windows this year for our apartment block.
    Of course when it was our turn I had workers who couldn’t really communicate with me. Eastern block guys who just smile, wave their hands in the air and nod when I speak. It was terrible!!!
    They made a huge mess replacing our windows and a door. Three rounds of cleaning to get our place back in shape. Plaster dust is a stealth mofo.

    This window reno was something our co-op voted on. Personally we voted against it but our co-op voted it in so there it is. We also have the pleasure of paying for it because we own our apartment. Fuck me in the eye. Anywhoooo circumstances beyond my control! My anxiety and stress level was off the charts dealing with the whole shit of the window reno and strangers in our home. It was a parade of people in and out of our house for 3 days…. still not buttoned up 3 weeks later but the worst is over.

    Best wishes on your ceiling leak! xx


  5. Oh it’s beyond ridiculous and who knows how long it will take to get fixed. Having a language barrier is THE WORST! At least we only had to deal with stupid people. I hope this gets done QUICK! I reeeeaaalllly don’t like having strangers in my home. Ugh
