And I thought I had a wandering mind!
Every time i come on this board and see my reputation.
Despite all the bother that it's caused me today, it's all working. Have to admit, going "round the world for a short cut down IT memory lane" and coming out the other side with everything working feels pretty good. Even though it could all have been avoided!
If the cat you are hugging is Schrödinger's, you are in trouble.
No, the cat is called Hobbes; although we did have a full on debate (argument) in the office today about Schrödinger's cat, super positions and paradoxes caused by time travelling.
Wow, just wow. I'm quite astounded at why you just don't get it.
That makes me go arrgghh!!!
Something that makes me go ARRGGHH today:
Fixing a bug in one class has apparantly broken something in an entirely different class.
I found this out about half an hour after leaving the office when a sysadmin wondered why a machine wasn't importing properly. *sigh*
Kids with Bieber hair cuts.
Interestingly, a friend of mine has a really funny voice. It's really deep and when he gets excited it sounds like he's just going "ARARGHRGGHRGRAGHR".
Something that SERIOUSLY makes me go ARRGGHH and also unsurprisingly is making me want to take a baseball bat to the B%$£"$DS knees.
Me and a friend have set up our own company (incorporation etc all dealt with) we just need to find a decent unit that we can store and redistribute stock from. We find the perfect unit. We research the unit and find that just a week earlier the previous tenant had to give the unit up owing 8 months rent. We go and see the landlord's agent and he says that the least his client will rent the property out for is 6 months security deposit and 3 months rent in advance now at £625.00 that equals £5625.00 now thats a fair chunk of change for a new company just starting out. A week later we find out that he has rented out the property to the previous tenents new business partner for a £415.00 security deposit and one months rent. He is also only charging them £415.00 a month rent.
I'm fuming. If he had given us those terms we could have had the lease signed there and then.
I remedy this by sending messages that are also known as a date cast, goes to all males within a 50 mile radius of me, telling them that i'm frigid with vaginal dryness so nothing will be going no where, or that they need a vasectomy and i have ice, or so along those lines
That landlord is an idiot. He allows himself to be conned again by a tenant who is already conning him. Best to not rent from idiots. Too volatile.
Has it not occurred to you that it was probably the agent who was playing games? That's far more likely to be the case. He probably knows the previous tenant and/or new business partner. (Yes I do have experience of this)
FYI though your lack of trading record won't have helped you to negotiate much in this situation - you're presumably an unknown quantity with unproven payment record and no historical accounts - whether with this landlord or another.
We all know the rules, we all break them when we choose to, even in the heat of the moment we have chosen to. Canon does get it. What Canon doesn't get is why you feel the need to make an example of people - knowing that we know what is acceptable and what is not and simply ignore that at times - what he considers is a degree of public humiliation.
I agree it was the agent playing games to be honest I don't think our lack of trading record had anything to do with it. The unit in question is the only one on a quiet residental street the landlord (well landlady) recieved the unit when her husband died and hasn't done anything with it since. Both myself, my business partner and a few other people who know the agent are of the opinion that he is trying to drive the value of the property down (its 2897 sq ft) so that he can buy it level the unit and build flats on it (its near the local hospital and 3 minutes walk from a train station thats on a direct route to london)
So do a good thing and tell her what you were asked for by the agent, what you offered and what the agent had done settled on so he can't rip her off. Be the good American
Samaritan and who knows karma may come through for you
Edit: fecking Samsung predictive text!
Allow me to introduce my translator, I think you will find her much more palatable.
There are a few things wrong with that statement, firstly karma may or may not exist as the idea that the concept of "action" or "deed" as it is understood may cause an entire cycle of cause and effect which may or may not have any bearing on an entirely thoreticial future life and as such it is a little far fetched to say the least and secondly something which I believe to be of far more importance is I'M BRITISH so being a good American would be an impossibility.
I have now edited my post to compensate for Samsung's fecking predictive text. SAMARITAN !! Not American Now be nice!
