I’m supposed to be moving before the end of the month. The real estate agency that showed me the apartment made me jump through hoops and run like a crazy person to get my application in before anyone else could take the apartment. But it’s now been almost 2 weeks and the building still hasn’t approved me. I get updates every day, like oh today they ran your credit report! and today they talked to your current landlord! And my unvoiced question is always ummm could they not have done ALL of this on ONE fucking day? It’s not rocket science.

So I’m just a big ball of stress at this point. I can’t schedule movers until I know I have the damn apartment. And what if they say no? Then I have to go through all this shit again for the third time. (I originally was going to take a different place but they wanted -no lie- 60 pages of application filled out with accompanying documents)

It did not used to be this fucking hard to rent apartments. I don’t get it.

What’s driving you up a wall today?
