After stopping about ten times to rest, I made it near my street and couldn't move any more. So I had to abandon one of the packs (I bought three packs of five boxes) and journey onward with just two. Then I made it to my street and abandoned those two and went back for the third. It was still there. I guess people don't want boxes. But these were like £12/each. I bought three for two so £25 total but still. They have some value.
Then I had to take them one at a time to my house.
They all made it but man. I should have just ordered online and paid the £5 shipping.
Good that I have the boxes, though. It should be enough. I used three for some documents that I'm giving back to my job but still, 12 should be sufficient. I don't have much stuff.
And the letting agent for my place in London called me right when I got in. I was totally out of breath and the guy wasn't understanding me. But he asked if I'd be okay for somebody to see the property today. Well, I guess that's fine. When is the agent coming?
No. This moron expected me to show the place. I've never heard of this. I told him in no uncertain terms that I'm not doing that and it's the agent's job to show the flat.
I contact the landlady after that because maybe she doesn't know that this is how they conduct business. I remember the previous tenant showed me this place too.
But I've probably viewed 50 flats and this place was the only one where the tenant did the viewing. Absolutely no way am I doing that. Am I going to get paid a property manager's salary for this? They can fuck off with that nonsense.
So they're doing a block booking on Saturday. How lazy are these people? And even for that I think that they expect me to stay with the agent. I'm not doing that either.
I mean...aside from the fact that I'm not getting paid, it's in the landlady's best interest that I not be there. I'm not a salesman. More than that, my personality is off-putting. Totally unbelievable to ask a tenant to do the viewing.
