OK, I’ve had a joke here in the past about the frustrations of the damp in the kitchen in my flat – we were growing mushrooms there a few weeks ago, thanks to a dripping pipe from the washing machine that the previous tenant had not noticed. But weeks have now passed, and Pathmeads, the lousy housing association, still have not managed to get their act together to fix it.
Monday this week we had the 3rd visit to look at the problem, and the plumber promised to return on Wednesday morning. He realised he was over-booked, and I was phoned to say the problems would be solved Thursday, but Thursday has passed and we are still where we were. Apparently the plumber crashed his van into a lorry yesterday and hence could not make it. No idea what we might manage to get tomorrow.
Pathmeads seems to have masses of people who work in offices, shuffling the papers to deal with these things, and very few people who seem capable of getting anything organised. Damned annoying.
