My Ceiling... or Lack There Of

You gotta
Raise the roof because it’s all on fire
— Raise the Roof by Public Enemy

A few days ago, I woke up and went into my bathroom to see that the ceiling did not look like a regular ceiling. My eyesight in the morning is not the best and I do not have my contacts in my eyes, so I went to take a closer look. As I step forward, I step into a puddle of water. Then I see the ceiling is dripping. Luckily, the roof was not on fire... it was wet. So wet that there was a water bubble between the paint and the ceiling. 

I clean up the water on the ground and get a bowl under the dripping, but now I have a leaking ceiling. I have been extremely busy and exhausted due to Nutcracker and Ryan, my roommate, has been working long days and shifts for work. This problem came at the wrong time. We still have to deal with problem none the less. I had a crazy Saturday in front of me and so did Ryan, so we did not get a hold of the landlords. 

Flash forward to today, Monday, and now there were two water pockets and it was getting worse. Luckily I got the landlords to check out the apartment and they got the maintenance guy in right away. He drained the water in the paint and then cut the ceiling open. So now there is a hole in my ceiling.... that is new. He went to the apartment above me and found that their hot water pipe was leaking. So now they have to fix that pipe and at the same time I have to wait for the ceiling to dry before they can fix it. 

I never thought this would happen but stuff happens. The best way I found to deal with it was to be patient and nice because being rude will get me nowhere but more frustrated (RULE 48). Next step is just to wait until the maintenance guy comes back. Till then, I got a nice hole in my ceiling.
