Flames on the Side of my face......


OOOOOH I am so pissed. Long story short I was supposed to get my landlords apartment. I had discussed it with him in July. My landlord sells the building, doesn't tell the new landlord that I had been working with him about taking over the space and the new owner rents the space to SOMEONE ELSE in the building who just asked last week even though I was the person who asked for it first, documented even, I was the person who showed off my apartment to potential buyers, and I'm frankly THE BEST AND HIGHEST PAYING TENANT in the building. Im the one who picks up the menus, Im the one who scrapes off the locksmith stickers, Im the one who cleans up THE PUDDLES OF BLOOD IN THE HALL!?!! ( a drunk construction worker fell through the glass door once)........... When I asked about the space the new owner said the other people hadn't even signed yet he just said "well they gave a deposit.".. WELL FUCK THAT, I WILL PAY MORE?! The space has an outdoor space and a huge storage/office space as big as my current apartment in the basement. This is EXACTLY what I needed which is why I asked in JULY... THIS SUCKS SO HARD. Im BONKERS... and the KICKER, is that he's giving it to a PREGNANT couple because they're having a baby... FUCK YOU! That space is gonna be filled with baby toys and garbage...
I guess its not meant to be and I know I'll find something better but I actually had to calmly walk into the bedroom, calmly put my face in a pillow and SCREAM AND FLAIL like I was on fire because the invisible flames on my face. This may not seem like a big issue to you if you're outside NYC but if you lived in Manhattan you'd understand how valuable a good piece of real estate is...
So now I look for a new place.... purple flames... lightening and a shadowy black dragon wailing. (Thats my brain right now.)

Maybe you're forgetting you've had the power all along...talk to the amethyst crystal?

Sue said...

WOW! That really does suck! What a crap deal! Other than convincing the expecting couple that the place is haunted/cursed, I agree with Kurt. Use the the crystal to locate a new place that suits your needs.

IT'S NOT JUST YOU. It's me, too. I put in a contract on a house (also in July) and have been patiently waiting to close on it... which was supposed to happen Monday. EXCEPT I get a phone call that the seller can't make closing because he broke his hip on a fanboat in a Louisiana bayou??? The screaming you heard when you stopped screaming was probably me.

Los Angeles is the best place in the world.

They may have made a deposit but it's usually NOT a deal until you have both a deposit AND signed leases...the landlord can always return the deposit to the other perspective tenant.

P.S. Love Madeline Kahn! :)
P.P.S. Same goes for condos...you need the deposit and contracts

Hi David,
My God, I feel for you in this one - take out a hit!!
Just a quick line to say that the "flames...flames...up the side of my face" is my favourite line in that movie - and there are many good lines.
Bless you for an amazing site.
