I know here this a law (not sure if it's everywhere or just here in WA) but if the fridge is considered unusuable (theirs has to be certain things wrong with it) and if they still wont replace it, then you have a right to replace it urself and get a refund within a certain amout of time from the landlord, if not then they will get a huge fine. So if I where you, I would find out if that law is in your area, and what the criteria is for it, and use it. And if your like me, and dont know anything about
laws, then ask around, I'm sure alot of other people know or can find out for you, maybe even that church your going to call, but I'm sure theirs a 100 places you can call to find that out from. Oh yea, i forgot to mention in my last post, that when I moved out of that first apartment, they replaced the fridge, but they wouldnt do it when I was living there, it makes no sense. We have a new manager now, but I hear shes a dingdong, so I dont know if things will be any better with her, they're so cheap here. I was talking to my neighbor, who's an older man that lives by himself that suffers from PTSD from vietnam, and we where joking that this place is like an old dirty trailortrash park, it's that ghetto around here. And they think I'm "stuck up" cause I dont party like them, actually I dont party at all, and I complain about
them all the time (which of course has done nothing). I seriously feel threatened by them, I double check that all my doors and windows are locked even when I take my garbage out, or step out to smoke cause alot of my neighbors have people around that will break in, I have seen them do it. I've even caught them trying to peek through my windows, one guy was standing there in the dark for only God knows how long, and when I finally saw him, he asked for a lighter, I yelled for him to go before I called the cops. Its too scary, and all because my SSI doesnt provide enough money for me to live in a safe normal place. I'm even embarrassed to tell people where I live.
