I dropped my rent in the rent drop box this evening. Since it was cash, I called the landlord so he’d come pick it up immediately, and leave a receipt in my box. I’ve never had a problem using the drop box before, although I don’t make a habit of leaving cash in there it was necessary for reasons I won’t get into right now.
Just got a call from him a little while ago. It wasn’t in there. :eek:
Now, the box is locked, but there’s a slit you drop it in, and you can fit your hand in there a little. I made sure to push the envelope down so it wasn’t visible, but someone theoretically could have gotten their hand in there and pulled it out.
It was only in there for a few short hours. My building is a secure building, the front door is locked and only tenants have they key. There are only 4 others in this building, the 3 guys upstairs are friendly and trustworthy neighbors, really great people.
The guy across the hall is a meth addict, hasn’t paid rent in months and is getting evicted (though it’ll take another month or two in court since he’s contesting the eviction). He’s never been friendly, and just seems like the type who’d steal from his neighbors.
So, now I’m royally fucked. I am completely broke until I get my financial aid for school, but that’s not for another week.
Whoever stole it (although I’m fairly certain it’s the asshole across the hall) knew that was the rent drop, and that they were fucking their neighbor over. I am so pissed off, I want to break down this asshole’s door and beat him in the kneecaps until he gives me back my money.
Mother fucker!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:
