Another problem is her lack of courtesy when parking. Her daughters vehicle is parked about 5 feet from the end of curb making it impossible to park in front of it, the second truck is parked about 5 feet behind that. Between the two of them it's an additional parking spot. The other two are parked along the street in different area's but still on our block. We live in a nine plex that has a parking lot for the 4 apartments on the east side of the building but the other 5 apartments have to park on the street, 4 of the 5 have vehicles .With the kids that live next door that have 5 people and 5 cars. They have enough room to park two cars in the driveway and the other 3 live on the street. It's a little cramped.
We live next door to the Sellwood New Seasons and often have customers or employees parking on the street during the day. My boyfriend and I both drive and he has a motorcycle- to alleviate the parking problem we will park together and put the motorcycle between the cars as tightly as it will fit and it takes up the same amount of space that just 2 cars would. I often leave work a little early to get home and secure a spot and then move the motorcycle so that it's parked like a car to hold the space for our second car. We never had a problem until the recent influx of vehicles that my neighbor brought to the block.
So Damn Portlanders, how do I handle the situation? This woman is already notorious for overstepping her boundaries and not wanting to follow rules. Nothing in her lease stipulates how many cars she can have but there must be something I can do.
My bike has been sitting under the eves at my parents' house for about five years. The frame is good, the tires are good, but the brakes need looked at. It doesn't shift properly; the dial says it's in first gear, but the chain keeps slipping. I also want commuter tires put on. So what kind of repair package should I be looking for?
Thanks for the input, nonetheless.
For those not familiar with bahn mi, they're Vietnamese sandwiches on small loaves of fresh French bread. They cut open the bread, apply some sauces (one is actually a pate), then fill it with meat of your choice (or not) and carrots, daikon, cilantro, and jalapeno. So goooood!
Usual disclaimer: I don't know them or work for them. I just love food.
We found a place that we wanted to live, they didn't have the apartment available, but they had one that was smaller. They told us that we couldn't see it because there were tenants in it. So we took a chance (which WE KNOW WAS STUPID) and signed a lease. We were under the impression that when a bigger apartment was available we could move into that, well our "leasing agent" told us that it wasn't possible and we would have to wait out our 6 month lease.
Well, we finally saw our apartment today and well I have no words to explain how disappointed we are.
We want to get out of our contract. We signed the lease today. My mom says that there is a period of 72 hours in which we could opt out of the contract... I want to know if this is true.
They also made us sign a few "odd" papers: one about mold and humidity and how we are responsible for keeping mold from not growing, the temperature in the apartment has to stay between 50-70 degrees F. They acknowledged that there is asbestos in the ceiling, but it has been contained or something like that.
There were stains on the carpet.
We didn't receive any copies of any of the papers we signed. We don't even have a copy of our lease... I don't know if we can actually do anything about this, but we want to try.
What gets me the most is that they weren't able to even suggest that we come back at a later time to view the apartment. I know that they have the right to give a tenant 24 hours notice if they were to view the property.
So, does anyone have any information or has anyone been in this situation? We fully acknowledge the fact that we are complete idiots, but there seems to be something dodgy going on...
Thanks in advance.
But, you see, they sent it to me with a GIANT CARDBOARD STICKER on it.
One that is REFUSING TO COME OFF OF THE COTTON.
I've tried heating it with my hairdryer, but so far all that's doing is making me hot and bothered--and teh cardboard keeps tearing, so instead of a perfectly square cardboard sticker on the blanket, now it's all raggedy and zebra looking, which is kind of cool, but clashes a bit with my red poppy flowers.
Any advice on how to get this damned sticker off?
Should there be a limit on vehicle weight for those driving with a learn's permit that is more stringent than the restrictions on a class C driver's license?
This never occurred to me until I was almost creamed by some teenie bopper in a Suburban today. Considering that SUVs that size are basically manslaughter machines on wheels, it seems like perhaps such inexperienced drivers shouldn't be operating them.
 The age distribution of the replies is not particularly surprising.
thank you for your attention in this matter!
My old high school, Marshall, provides night school, but they'll only take me until I'm twenty, and I only have seven credits to my name, so it'll take me a little bit longer than the year and a few months I have to graduate before I turn twenty.
Or alternative schools that will take simple high school dropouts. I don't have a drug or alcohol problem, I've never been arrested or even in trouble with the police, I'm not a bad kid. I just want my high school diploma and I don't want to have to pay 200 bucks a month to go to a community college to get it.
