I was so nervous about even asking because we were kicked out of our last apartment because my television made too much HEAT. It is so nice to be dealing with a management company as opposed to my lunatic uncle. But now, I'm really happy that we brought the rent issue up with the management. I honestly wasn't expecting them to do anything, so this was a nice surprise.
I wonder how much money I've just given up throughout the years because I was too afraid to say anything. A few weeks ago, my mom bought me a new macbook in exchange for doing MAJOR cleaning at her house. We also bought a plastic case/sleeve for the computer, but I really hated it. More than two weeks had passed and I had already opened the case, so I figured that it was just a lost cause. But my persistent mom went back to the store yesterday and was able to return it without a problem. There have been countless times that I purchased something and didn't like it, but just figured that I wouldn't be able to return it.
I'm learning these lessons slowly and I'm learning that I really need to speak up sometimes.
