- Landlord's business office has lost our rent check...again. Third time in 2 years. Last time their "solution" was to ask us to pay by cashier's check. Um, so, you want us to shell out extra $$ every month because your business manager is incompetent, then send through the mail a form of payment that could be cashed by anyone, after your business manager has already demonstrated a propensity for misplacing such things? I don't think so.
- I won a VISA gift card at the vendor show a few weeks ago. They sent it to my campus address (apparently), but it hasn't turned up. They are now sending me one to my home address, with instructions to spend both in case the first one ever escapes the campus mail vortex. w00t!
- MegaResearchInstitute (home of GradLab) had me do a fuckton of paperwork last year so that they could retrieve from the IRS the ~$4K in tax that they erroneously removed from my stipend during the 4 years I was supported by a training grant. The first installment of this money was supposed to be in my hot little hands sometime last month. I still have not seen hide nor hair of this money, nor the fuckton of paperwork that I need to do in order to get installments 3 and 4. Is this some kind of hoax?
