Pipe Troubles and Tuesday's Tips

A lot of you probably don't know, but I'm a landlord. It sounds much more exciting than it really is. When my ex wanted to buy a bigger place (since my own condo was good for either one pack rat or two normal people), I didn't want to sell, so I rented it out.

Well, now the pipes are backing up into the sink from other condos that share the same pipes...The association (which I pay a bit to every month) is supposed to pay for this kind of thing, but the plumber will only charge them if they call the plumber and not me. Well, try and get them to call the plumber! I'll have to call them again at 9 my time and get them on it. We had to go over there last night and cap the pipe so that their kitchen wouldn't overflow during the night.

In other news with a tip:

  1. My dad is a landlord, too, and I know there is always something happening! One unit had the copper pipes stolen! Hope it gets figured out soon. :)
