Every problem has several solutions

06.07.05

I’m lucky to have a very attentive landlord and building manager… for the most part. But this can be a good thing or a bad thing.

I phoned my building manager because one of the burners on my stove (included in the rent) was broken. Every time I turned it on, a few seconds later the room would smell like smoke and the smoke alarm would go off.

Today, she brought the landlord by, ostensibly to fix the burner.

I just got home to see what happened. The burner is where it was, seemingly untouched and still broken. But the smoke alarm has disappeared.

Don’t let anyone tell you there’s only one solution to a problem.

Hmmm…better keep a close watch on the washing machine if you need to phone in a complaint about the dryer.
