Recently I've been feeling a bit crowded in our apartment and have started anxiously awaiting the day when I can have my own house. However, yesterday I realized there are a few benefits to apartment living.
My dishwasher started sounding awfully weird and I realized that it wasn't washing my dishes very well. So I called up the apartment office and put in a maintenance request. Early (but not too early) the next morning the fix it guy shows up, diagnoses the problem, leaves for a few minutes and comes back with a new dishwasher. He installs it in a matter of minutes and leaves. I now have a new dishwasher...free of any money or elbow grease. Benefits of renting...right there!
