  • Apartment and landlord problems...what can I do?

    So I've been living in my first apartment for just a few months now(in Ontario, Canada) and I have so many problems that I didn't notice when I first decided to move in. These include:

    - broken oven (came with apartment, was broken from the start)

    - broken fridge/freezer (came with apartment, was working at first and recently stopped. It is warmer in there than the apartment itself. Everything is going bad; I keep all my food frozen so it doesn't go bad including meat which is very expensive! I have almost nothing to eat now...The fridge IS plugged in and I can hear it running. The temp dial in both fridge and freezer is set to COLDEST. The switch for fridge on the fuse box is set to ON.)

    - Loose floor boards in hallway (and nails that keep raising up out of them no matter how many times I hammer them back down)

    - Broken windows (most won't even open)

    - Ants (were there when I moved in, put out ant traps but they still keep coming)

    - Moths (were there when I moved in, I see little months flying around EVERYWHERE, no matter how many I kill)

    - Crack in ceiling (it leaked before and the floor was soaked with water)

    - No doorknob on one door, closet doorknob is loose and makes it very difficult to open that door, bathroom lock doesn't work and door doesn't close all the way (door is also too small for door frame)

    - Laundry machines are broken. Washer does a bad job and leaves everything soaked. Dryer doesn't dry anything even after wringing out the clothes they are still as damp after putting them in the dryer. I've spent money on laundry tokens that are useless now and I can't do my laundry)

    That's all I can think of for now, wouldn't be surprised to find more problems though.

    Anyways I have contacted my landlord multiple times about many of these issues. He has ignored my texts/calls before and when he does answer or I confront him in person he says he'll come take a look at the problems the next day or he'll make sure everything gets fixed. He has not come to look at the problems after dates and times agreed on that he would come to do so. He has not contacted me at all about fixing any of the issues. I also contacted my local Housing Authority and am waiting for their reply. I'm just so fed up with this. I only have a min wage part time job and will be a full time student so I can't afford any repairs, I can barely afford all the food (meat, bread, cheese, milk, etc) that I have lost because of the broken fridge!

    I have not signed a lease. I am looking for a new place and plan to move out ASAP so don't suggest moving out as a solution. I have diagnosed depression and have been on several anti-depressants that never work; living here has made it significantly worse as I have been feeling very sick and down due to all the stress caused by problems here, feeling more mental strain, and extreme fatigue/lack of energy/extreme lack of focus (always tired here, I do get lots of good sleep, sometimes I'll just waste my whole day sleeping and I NEVER used to be this way before I moved here. I also can't focus and zone out more, even my managers at work have commented on that, and before I was a top worker and was always complimented on doing my job the best...and no I have not lost interest in my work I LOVE my job). I do see a doctor very often. Idk if it's just in my head but I really do believe the stress of living here has contributed to the detriment of my mental state.

    so sorry for how long this is! As you can tell I really wanted to rant about this! Here's a summary if you couldn't bear reading all the details:

    - APARTMENT SUCKS, EVERYTHING'S BROKEN

    - LANDLORD DOES NOTHING

    - FEELING DEPRESSED, FED UP, AND THAT MY MONEY'S BEEN WASTED

    - NO LEASE, MOVING OUT ASAP

    I just want to know if there's anything I can possibly (and legally) do that could benefit me or help get money back (for spoiled food, useless laundry tokens, etc). I feel like I have been ripped off and want to get the most out of it as possible. I want to hear your opinions please :)

  • Rose Hair Tarantula? Is this normal or what's wrong..?

    I got a male Chilean rose hair tarantula spiderling (he's still so tiny but he has his tibial hooks so that's how i know he's male) a couple days ago. his terrarium is a good size lots of room but not too big, with coco husk subsrate, shelter, and water dish.

    now what i don't understand is why he likes being up high all the time! he climbs near the top of his terrarium in the corner and sticks to the side up there even in the day time. he's always up high. he fell down a few times and i was scared he would hurt himself but he climbed right back up to the top again and was fine. i moved him into his shelter but he just crawled out and up to the top again. he's never gone in his shelter besides the one time i put him in it myself. i dont understand because he's suppose to be a ground dwelling spider not an aboreal one and everyone always says tarantulas just hide away in their dark little shelters all the time.

    BY THE WAY, i went to the pet store he came from twice before i decided to buy him and both times he was at the top of his cage at the pet store and not in his little hut. all the other spiders were in their huts in their cages (except the aboreal ones).

    so why doesn't he want to hide in his shelter? why does he keep climbing up to the top of his terrarium and stay there all day and night? i'm confused.

  • GUINEA PIG! Please Help!!!?

    Okay.

    I had my guinea pig out this morning and my mom gave her a carrot. I hadn't put fresh food in their bowl yet, I just woke up. My guinea pig (Squeak) put her lips around the carrot, but didn't bite it. My mom figured she wasn't hungry.

    I didn't believe that because she hadn't eaten yet and she's my FATTEST guinea pig and loves to eat. I gave her some lettuce, which is her favourite treat! she AlwayS eats that! but she did the same thing she did w/ the carrot and then nibbled a little off. She was eating fine yesterday.

    I knew something was wrong, so I gently turned my pig over, and opened her mouth. Her upper front tooth was missing.

    Since this morning, I have fed her mushed up banana, finely grated carrot, and small orange pieces. (and yes, she did eat them). And I put Vit C drops in her water. She also can still eat her poo. She can not eat her regular food, ( hard guinea pig pellets with added vitiman C)

    It doesn't seem to hurt, she's not crying or acting weird. She just seems a little...confused... and she was purring A LOT today when I was holding her...

    Anyways, their teeth and nails grow continuously, so will her tooth grow back? and if it grows back, will her front teeth be even, or crooked?

    Any tips? For care and stuff? What should I do?

    DO NOT say "go to a vet! your guinea pig needs dental care and if she does not then...blah, blah, blah". My parents won't take her to a vet, it's too expensive and they only did when she is very sick. don't even say, "I kno u said ur parents won't take her to the vet, but you really should, because...." or anything like that. got it? good.

    Now, what should I do???

  • Do You Believe In Logic?

    (yes, this is a serious question so no mean comments)

    I suppose I do believe in logic (who doesn't?), but I don't like things to be logical. I love thee unlogical! Including the paranormal, strange cases, and things that don't make sense. The only thing that bothers me is there is usually no (logical) expanation so it keeps me wondering. I could give you an example of no logic in one case, but then it takes to long to write...

    Anways, do you believe in logic? Do you perfer things logical or unlogical and do you believe in the unlogical, like the things listed above? Why/why not?

  • So, are chinchillas good pets?

    Are they?

    They are...nocturnal...? Is that right? But if you have them up during the day they get used to it? They need dust baths? Does their fur get all dusty and iky or is it soft after a dust bath?

    Do they bite?

    Do they smell? (be honest...)

    What do they eat besides chinchilla food mixes...like do they eat fruits and veggies and if so whats their favourite?

    How much do they cost?

    I live in Canada and it's legal to own one, but illegal to sell them at pet stores. But pet stores can still sell chinchilla food, cages, toys, dust, etc...

    In the hamster balls, but like the hug ones made for bunnies and chinchillas, will they work for chinchillas or is it bad? Like one said "for hamsters, guinea pigs, and small critters" and hamsters can run in it, but it's not safe for guinea pigs and guinea pigs won't even run in it but it says they can anyways...

    Can chinchillas do tricks?...like what?

    Is there any where in Detroit (I live right across from Detroit) in pet stores I can by a chinchilla? Do they sell them in Detroit? Do customs let you bring them across the border???

    Any extra info on chinchillas would be great, thanks!

    PS. I have guinea pigs right now and their like the perfect pets ever...but chinchillas are soooooo cute! Which would you say is better- chinchilla or guinea pig?...and why?

  • Question about pet fish...

    Hi. Today I'm going to get fancy goldfish... I heard they can live 40 or 50 years if they are well cared for?

    How old are they usually when they sell them at pet stores?

    How big do they get?

    If you bought 2 and ones a female the other male, are they likely to mate or not? If fancy goldfish mate, how many fishys do they give birth to?

    If I put normal smaller goldfish (not the long kind, the roundish kind..like redcaps and such) in with the big fancy goldfish, is that ok? There the same speices, so will they get along?

    Also, are there any rly cool or neat looking fish that will get along with goldfish and fancy goldfish? Like rly colourful ones that they would sell at petstores and stuff? I rly wanted to get a bunch of male guppies, cuz they look so colourful and pretty, but of course they like warmer water and goldfish like cool to room-temp...

    So, any info on fancy goldfish you have would be apreiciated!

    And also, please recomend any fish that go well with/can live with fancy and normal goldfish. (I prefer fish that last long too).

    And how long do normal goldfish/redcaps live to be? The oldest one I had lived to be 2 1/2 years old?

  • Good Shows? Please recommend!

    I love the show beyond belief: fact or fiction! But it got cancelled...at least I can watch ot over the internet now!

    I heard the show "miricles and other wonders" was supose to be good, but I didn't find it on tv anywhere?

    I used to like the show "mystery hunters" when I was a kid, about true stories of paranormal and monsters...

    I liked the show "twilight zone"...

    I don't like shows like "ghost hunters" or "goosebumps"...

    I like weird and interesting shows, or shows that don't have logic, or true shows about paranormal and unexplained activites. (but I hate when they try to find paranormal beings, I just like hearing the stories about them, and I don't like those boring "documentaries" on the goverment and UFO's and stuff...I've watched those be4 and it's just like an old guy talking about different investigations and showing deserted areas or places where spotting of them ocurred...).

  • Poem????????????????

    I have this cute little poem...but I forget who it's by...

    Does anyone know?

    I think it's called "Golden Memories" or something.

    Here's the poem:

    They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true.

    I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.

    A million times I cried.

    If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.

    In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.

    In my heart you hold a place no one else could fill.

    If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane.

    I'd walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.

    Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.

    But as God calls us back one by one, the chain will link again.

  • ...is this even possible??? how-so?

    there;s this old show called beyond belief: fact or fiction. Anyone remember it? It was awesome!

    Anyways, here was one of the stories I was wondering about:

    There's mom and she's tired and worn out so she drops her 2 year old daughter off at the grandma's house and goes home to rest. The gradma takes the girl out for a walk her her stroller, and they come upon a yard sale. the little girl grabs an old tiny chalkboard off the yard sale table and wont let it go. so the grandma buys it for her.

    they went back home and the 2 year old was scribbling on the chalck board for hours, she would't put it down. the grandma picked up her chalkboard, and she was astonished. Admist all the squigglyes, lines, and scribbles, there were WORDS! she didnt even know her alphabet yet! the words read, "Save Mommy".

    The grandma quicky drove over to her daughters house, but she knew it was silly... Her opened the door and smelled gas. the woman was passed out on the couch. there was a gas leak and if the grandma never came, the mother would die. But she was safe, all thanks to the words "save mommy", which were written by some1 how didnt kno how to spell...

    That was a true story, but how?

  • Don't you hate it...?

    Lol...I'm bored so I thought I'd ask something...it's serious, tho.

    Have u ever had any dreams where ur at work or school or something embarrasing happens to u, or you get rly sick, or something rly bad happens to u, and then u wake up and feel it actually happened?

    For example, if u dream ur at work all night and it's rly busy, thern u wake up and u reilize it's all a dream, but ur so tired from "working all night" that u have to go back to sleep cuz it seems u were awake?

    Don't those dreams suck! lol. My mom once dreamt she was working and she works at a busy hospital and she was like so tired wen she woke up.

    My dad once dreamt he was taking a jog or like running a marathon or something and he woke up and his legs hurt a little.

    And this 1 doesnt have to do with that type of dream but it's funny kinda: My brother was clicking his tounge in his sleep one night and when he woke up I told him and asked why. and he was like "i did? I had a dram about that..." and I was like "what were u doing in the dream" and he was like "I know this sounds weird, but I was having a tounge-clicking contest with a cow..." Lol I kno, it's like wtf...weird dream, rite?
