Yesterday the condo association started the process of upgrading our smoke and CO detectors- my unit upgrade was completed.
However, in the process of doing said upgrade, the electrician(s) damaged a wall bracket and bent the slide rail for my curtain panels in my bedroom.
Which they half-ass repaired with sticky tape.
And then failed to tell me about.
And which I discovered at bedtime when I went to close my curtain panels and they didn’t work correctly.
Which is when I got majorly pissed off.
Now, I don’t so much care that they damaged the bracket, etc. Shit happens. And as I’m the one who devised the hanging system for the rail/panel closure, I was mostly able to fix it.
What I care about is that (a) the electricians were obviously a bit careless while inside my place, and (b) THEY DIDN’T BOTHER TO TELL ME THEY’D DAMAGED MY SHIT!
That’s what really chapped my ass. Had they just left a note saying “Sorry, we had an accident and damaged your curtain system. Please call if you need help repairing.” Or something- anything- and I would have been pretty chill. I would have been frustrated,yes, but then shrugged my shoulders and fixed it.
And fixed it when I got home– not at 10:30 at night when I’m ready for bed and now have to get out tools and glue and take crap apart.
But no. They tried to hide the issue with a shitty repair job and then didn’t say anything. And that’s why I blew a gasket.
I ended up firing off an email to our condo management expressing my frustration and displeasure at the way things were handled.
I honestly don’t want anyone fired over this (heck, I was able to pretty much repair it without to much hassle) but I thought the incident deserved to be brought up.
Am I wrong?
