So, I came home to a lovely surprise. I've been given unconditional notice to vacate my apartment by December 7 for non-payment of my rent.
BUT I PAYED MY RENT! EARLY! I HAVEN'T BEEN LATE WITH THE RENT SINCE I MOVED IN!!!
I put a check in an envelope in the drop box on November 30, and thought all was well. Now they're kicking me out? *whimper*
Now, it's possible that there's something else going on. In November I got a letter in my door addressed to some one NOT me, saying that i had an outstanding water bill. I kept meaning to go into the office to ask about it, but I didn't make it in by the date they said. So I called. The girl on the phone said it sounded like there was a mistake somewhere (of the two water bills I've received, only one of them has my name, and none of them have the name of the person I know lived there right before I did).
The letter said if not-me didn't pay the water bill by the date they said, they wouldn't accept the December rent check, and late fees would accrue. Yay. So with my rent check, I put a letter explaining that I had received this notice, and I had payed the bills I'd received, but if I was owing, I would be happy to pay if they'd just address me by name and let me know how much I owed.
So now I have no idea what's going on. All I know is that I'm scared and angry, and so confused, and I can't do anything about anything until the office opens tomorrow morning. At 9AM. And I have to be at work tomorrow morning because Danny's out, and Shell people will be calling for me.
Why does this crap always happen just when I'd thought I was doing okay?
