Your radiator is leaking through my ceiling and it’s going to fall
down!! Can you shut off your radiator before it falls through my ceiling?! Call
Tommy the Super to fix it!
I’m a great neighbor. I never have loud parties at my place, I lower my music after 10pm and I pretty much don’t bother with anyone. But stupidity like this just aggravates me.
First off, if my radiator is leaking through to your apartment first and foremost you should be on the horn to the Super immediately. Clearly if the thing looks like it is going to “fall through the ceiling” (dramatic, much?) then I somehow doubt this is the first time you’ve noticed this.
Secondly, I’m supposed to “shut my radiator off”? So I’m supposed to simply freeze my tits off because there’s a problem with it? I shouldn’t maybe try and see what that problem is?
And finally, why are you telling me to call the super? Do I look like your fucking secretary? Are your fingers fucking broke?
Regardless, since I am neither stupid, lazy or inept at taking care of myself – I called the Super. He came while I was at work, simply tightened the thingamabob with a wrench and all is leak-free.
People really need to learn how to fucking take care of themselves. The Astrals ain’t exactly The Plaza and shit breaks. Regularly. But the Super is fantastic and takes care of things in a timely matter – the only thing is, you have to actually TELL him when something is wrong. And not in a snotty, bitchy way that you’re probably accustomed to speaking to people on the fucking internet, but in a nice, respectful way that indicates you’re not a total asshole.
And in the event that you’re reading this – I suggest you DO call Tommy and ask him to look at your ceiling because that radiator might have been leaking since last century and your ceiling might really actually fall down.
I’m not kidding.
