water is fun...

Except when it is 11:00 at night and pouring under your front door into the house wreaking your most favorite shoes that were stashed away neatly in the coat closet. Stumped, I sit here wondering two things, One: How is snow so furiously melting at this hour, not to mention it is 12 degrees out. Two: Why is my landlord and his wife a couple of [insert swear word here] idiots!?

Let me paint you a picture.

I am jamming out to Whatever You Like By T.I. (I love this song even though I don't listen to much hip hop) when I am interrupted by my phone ringing. I turn down the radio and answer the phone. It's Caleb, I say hi and he says,
"We have a big problem."
Ok, let me take a moment to just let any dads out there know that you don't say this to your significant other.
Immediately thoughts are running through my head, Ok James is stuck somewhere or something. He locked himself in the bathroom the other day, but that's a whole different story. I was thinking something along those lines though.
"Water is pouring in the house through the walls," he went on to say.
I was VERY confused and worried they might drown. I had no idea what the heck was going on.
"The snow is melting so badly water is everywhere out the front door and it is coming into the house. I don't know what to do, I have used every towel in the whole house!" I let him go telling him I would be home in a couple minutes.
I get home and he is out shoveling water like a crazy person, throwing the water which is landing on some little bush things. They are covered in ice.
I call my landlord.
His stupid wife answers the phone, here is how the conversation went:
Stupid Landlord Wife: Hello?
Me: Hi, is Marshall available?
SLW: Ummm...(in a snotty tone) He is sleeping, can I take a message?
Me: Oh, Yes. This is Bridget calling from the blank blank town homes in # blank and could you please let him know that snow is melting so badly that it is pouring into the front of our house? All over the entry way floor? Standing water? Seeping in from under the stairs and through the walls?
SLW: Oh, well even if I did wake him up I don't think there is much he could do about it.
Me: I understand, we just don't know what to do and don't have a wet vac and I didn't want to get in trouble for waiting.(we have got yelled at before by this dumb-dumb for waiting to call him when our furnace went out, we woke up at 8:00am and then realized it was out and immediately called him. He was yelling at us as to why we didn't call him at 7 am!?!!?)
Me: Oh, no. I don't want to cause any sort of inconvenience. Please just let him know in the morning then. Thank you.

Dumb broad. It was worse when I was talking to her than how it sounds being read.
To be continued tomorrow...
Should be interesting what this guy has to say and what he is going to do about he problem.

* I tried to take a picture of it, but it is kind of hard to take a picture of water like that.
