Inspection Day

Assorted inspections total up to at least five or six a year.  There’s always a chance for more, depending on circumstances. Reports of bed bugs will certainly cause some (for example). They don’t come at regular predetermined times like the third Thursday of such and such months.  Given an inspection, whatever else might be planned is adjusted to add in some cleaning time to spiffy up the place. It’s often said that one does not have to be at home. That may be true but that’s not a good practice in the opinion of yours truly. 

The morning dawned and as of 10:00 a.m. there was a puttering a while until about 11:30 a.m. They usually start on the ninth floor; it takes at least until then for them to get down to five.  When no one showed up as of 1:30 p.m., a visitation was made to a neighbor to see if anyone had inspected her apartment. Not as of then. Nearer 2:00 p.m. they came, they looked and maintenance messed with a lot in regard to the heating and air conditioning unit, but he didn’t fix the buttons.  That, now, is for next week. 

As with many in some sort of authority, regardless how much office staff smiles and offers friendly greetings or whatever, that doesn’t mean all is well in the “relationship.”  Inspections are one time that is worthy of a nervous tizzy.  The only positive thing about it is that if all is well (or good enough) it creates a good record. Nothing was said about the “white” on the rug.  In fact, seems like all is all right, except maintenance will be back not only to fix the air conditioning and heating unit, but also the garbage disposal. 

What one thinks important another does not.
