I hate moving

Oh bugger, just need to vent a bit of steam.
I am getting my stuff in storage and emptying the flat and it's hell, pure hell.
Hot sweaty and pi55ed off beyond belief, banged my knee for starters, have a head ache still the flat is full of stuff even after three hours of dragging boxes down a narrow and steep staircase and chucking most stuff in the bin.

I hate moving with every fiber of my Sein.
There, steam valve opened and back under control.

Re: I hate moving

I hate it too. I vowed that we will not move again unless we pay someone to do it. Being eternally broke, it seems like we'll be staying put for a while!

Re: I hate moving

i hate the idea of it. but when i'm actually doing it, i quite enjoy it. i like the physical exertion, the pain and accidents, the hectic organisation and figuring out how to cram everything into a van, find parking, get the sofa up an impossibly narrow and awkward staircase...

Re: I hate moving

Where's the problem? Moving shows you how many things you own, many more than you ever thought. You're stinking rich! Rejoice!

Re: I hate moving

Do what I do. Find an old piece of furniture that you don't need and are ready to throw away.. Take all your frustration out on it and smash it to bits ...

Re: I hate moving

Right, got out of the flat in Berneck, I only lost my mind in the process but as there was not that much there anyway, who cares?
I had written to the landlord saying that I would be there at the weekend but I would be back at work Monday.
So if the bugger wanted anything he should have been there, he wasn´t and come Sunday afternoon I left the keys on the window ledge
and beetled off to Basel.
I had been advised to leave the flat "tip top rein" and I did, even to the point of going with a scalpell under the skirting board.
Seems we have different opinions on what constitutes "tip top rein"
I got a flaming mail on Monday.
There was a matchhead dint in the showerstall and it blew his top, also the Lavabo was supposedly damaged (eventhough I never saw something)
Admittedly I HAD forgotten to do the baking oven but I had told him this in a mail stating that I would reemburse for the ovencleaning.
The top of the kitchen cupboard was dusty, there was a spider-web still hanging somewhere, one of the tooth-glasses was missing and the
loo-brush was well, the way a loo-brush should be.
And how can I just leave without an ordentliche Abnahme, looks like I am now a bad person for that, though it is a bit steep coming from a bloke who in the beginning left the contract on the floor and who I did not see for the first two years.
I got two pages of rant and fire and brimstone and pretty heavy threats.
He now wants to replace the shower and wants my insurance (sod that, realy is a matchhead sized dint) and send me a bill for 600 Chuffs for the cleaning and the damage.
Looks like the stormy weather is not over yet, still it means that I do not have to go back this weekend.

Re: I hate moving



If he isn't there to inspect on exit, isn't just his word against yours?

i.e. "it was fine when I left it [and you are a lying bastard]"

Re: I hate moving

Let your insurance take care of it. He will have to prove to the insurance company that there really is a problem with the shower head.

Rgds,
Nick

Re: I hate moving

Slammer.. you can't win that one, he still has your guarantee no ?
Hire some cleaning help, it will be easier in the long run than raising a fuss.

Re: I hate moving

We just got away with not paying 600 francs cleaning fee as we had taken photos of all the mess, holes and yukky bits when we moved into old place , saying that though we left it in a fat better state after scrubbing and painting for a week ( not that we are grotbags btw! )
Stuck to our guns and proved a point with them !
