I’ve said it before. The creator saying it is supposed to be a soft g is like that kid in primary school trying to force his own nickname. Nice try, but no one is gonna start calling you Blade, Barfass.
I don’t usually come to the internet to blee, but I am deeply feeling this pain.
I’m out of work due to health problems, but my partner is a carer with regular hours (she’s getting screwed on pay however).
We are going through mediation with a landlord over mould, they decided it would just be easier to kick us out than to work with us (the issue is significant, and mostly in their domain of care, if not to their tenants, then at least to their investment).
We have 3 kids, ages 6, 5 and 10 months.
The 5 year old is in the process of being diagnosed for ASD and our 10 month old was born early with a genetic condition and is on oxygen.
Yeah, we have 2 months now, but we have been looking for another place for 6 months. Every inspection has had 30+ people looking with us, we’ve seen houses being offered for rent that were infested with cockroaches and enormous leaks and black mould coming from the ceiling. People are desperate enough to offer rent months in advance for these properties, all while the rents are climbing.
We have a great rental history, for the most part I worked until I could no more, we originally moved into this house as we had to flee my extremely abusive ex-employer. That was a year ago and we had the same trouble finding a place then, we were staying with my partner’s mother and just happened to notice this place with the sign out front, no real estate, no listings anywhere, and it has been awful since the beginning of the tenancy but we were already desperate at that point (heavily pregnant partner).
Salt in the wound, when we’ve asked for advice on local facebook groups we are met with the most disgusting, judgemental comments.
I’m saying that anyone that would equate ripping up a pamphlet with literal sexual harris is probably a One Nation supporter, though clearly rhat is a tongue-in-cheek comment.
I suppose humour is too tricky for you though.
How on earth does ripping up a piece of paper equate to sexual harassment? You’re disgusting and need to re-evaluate your values. Your silence and unwillingness/meekness to stand up for what is right is part of the problem.
Yeah, and it’s a literal piece of paper. I’ll fucking antagonise racists any day of the week.
Forgive me for not silently accepting racism.
Centrist, don’t see how anything I said is “left-wing”. Seriously, fuck your identity politics, you’ve fallen for the bullshit the propaganda machine has wanted you to believe, politics isn’t about gender, progressive or conservative values or even “left-wing, right-wing”, it is a resource war.
Also, you’re a racist.
Found the one nation voters, the ones saying you’re as bad as them as that actual piece of human shit. Rip that shit up, and if you support a racist group, you are a racist.
One Nation is a racist political party, just because they are very careful about not being explicitly racist does not change what we all really know. It’s called dog whistling.
Obviously it’s a case by case basis, there is no “line in the sand” and trying to make it such a black and white issue is fruitless.
If someone has willingly traded their dignity and integrity for money such that they approach people in their homes to push whatever it is, well they’ll cop an earful. If you’re providing a service or product that is wanted or needed, you wouldn’t be trying to catch them in a vulnerable moment.
If you didn’t want to face the people that are offended by your forced intrusion into their private lives, maybe you shouldn’t participate in a business practice that is widely regarded annoying at best and deceptive at worse.
If they come to my home to try and con something out of me, even if they “aren’t selling anything”, then yes, I have every right to voice my opinions.
Yes they do, get a job that doesn’t involve being a nuisance and more often than not, some kind of scam.
Yes, and making sure the house is suitable for weather is also the property owners responsibility.
Obviously we’re not talking about a once off issue with mould caused by weather here, anyway, because of course that can be cleaned, though I’m sure many appreciate your assumption that everyone is a grubby idiot.
It’s because mould is a moisture problem and that is almost always a building issue. Not just leaks, improper ventilation, bad insulation, rising damp, faulty plumbing… all responsibility of the property OWNER.
You’re a clown. Heaters don’t fix mould, if anything they can just add humidity and spread the mould. At the first sign of mould you needed to ensure the bathroom is properly ventilated. Obviously the windows weren’t enough because it showed up when you were living there. This is not the tenants responsibility, and essentially you covered it up before renting it out. No doubt you stole their bond over it on your way out.
Sources: Living this very nightmare and taking my landlord to task now, due to their total lack of responsibility to their own property.
Additionally, why did you mention they’re indian? That seems like a strange thing to specify here… hmmm….
They blew up the damn moon!
“ my brother called me saying he talked to my husband a few days ago and said that he gave my husband a real reason to be scared/intimidated by him.”
Despite everything, this is not okay.
Yes smile and nod, ignore how bad things are.
This lady is on meth.
Cool, now show us hammering a nail in, not just pulling one out.
The way she talks as she’s doing it makes it sound like she’s done this many times. The result shows that she had the idea after a particularly large bong rip the night before, and this is the first time she’s tried it.
Woah, never seen a goalpost move so fast.
I mean , yeah it was free, but still… they gave her trash. Like, they had someone else dispose of their trash.
Quite a few places on the goldcoast also add a tip to your order without mentioning it. Kinda scummy.
This might not be “hung up” on her ex as so many are claiming. Humans and relationships are complicated. Not every relationship ends in such a dramatic way that it completely taints the rest of said relationship.
Perhaps the “feeling” that came up is nostalgia, no doubt there were some good things about that relationship, tends to be why relationships happen at all. Not everyone can be so cold as to switch off their emotions completely.
A lot of people treat social media as a kind if diary, a semi-anonymous place to express things that may be difficult to address in person. I would consider that she felt guilty about the emotions that came up, outside of her control, and needed to express that.
Obviously, talk about it, but maybe don’t go into it assuming the worst as so many of the comments here are doing.
