So I'm cranky right now and to calm down I'm writing, so unless you want to hear a rant, stop reading.

So, i mentioned on a previous post that our house is getting sold, so we have to move.

So the real estate wanted to have a viewing, but because we only have one key, and we weren't going to be in the same state, (visiting family in Victoria) he was all like, OK, I'll get the building manager to let me in.
The building manager was all like, i ain't letting you in, the owner was supposed to change the locks 3 months ago, so no way!! (same reason why he wouldn't fix my door key).
So then, he was all like arranging with the husband for us to leave our ONLY key for him to be able to be let in, and we were cool with that, AS LONG AS WE GOT IT BACK WHEN WE ARRIVED. (I'm sure you all can see where this is headed).

Lets rewind to Wednesday, we had kinda cleaned up our house, but not to the point of letting people walk through it. (we ain't grubs, but we don't make a small mess in living). So the real estate man was talking with the husband about the key, and getting in and all that, and real estate man was all, I'll come over tonight to change the lock, and the husband was like sorry, we wont be there, so no. Blah blah, long story short, real estate guy was all like, OK, I'll come over on Thursday NIGHT, so our plan was to come home after work, clean and scrub and make everything sparkly clean, and then finish up on Thursday before we left (about lunch time).
Turns out, we were sleepy on Wednesday, so went to bed early, and then woke up early on Thursday to clean completely.

I got up about 8, and started semi cleaning and waited for the husband to wake up. Then about 9am, got in the shower, (wouldn't usually share that, but its important). Got out of the shower AND I HEAR OUR FRONT DOOR BEING OPEN AND PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT 'THIS MUST HAVE BEEN THE REASON WHY THEY DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE YOU THE KEY'.

The husband ended up yelling at them to get out, (only MUCH meaner words), so they left.
Wouldn't you believe, about 2 mins later, AGAIN the real estate man just opens the door and walks in AGAIN.

PS. what he did was totally ILLEGAL. While he did have permission to come when we were not there, at night, he DID NOT DID NOT DID NOT have permission to come in the morning, nor did he have permission to come in, after we told/asked/demanded he leave the 2nd time.

Even though we were super pissed off, we still cleaned the house super clean, like, so clean, that people could mistake it for a hotel room, (apart from the boxes of packed stuff).

So we went to the families, left our only key with the building manager so that the viewings could go ahead while we were away and skip to today.

Got a sms this morning, saying that the viewing was cancelled. Not so bad, cause whatever, gives us more time to find a new place.

Get home tonight, about 11pm, to look in the mailbox, (where the key SHOULD have been to find....


Speak to the concierge to find....


Today is Saturday, building manager doesn't work on the weekend.

Which means, at least one of us needs to be home to let the other in, OR we have to leave our home unlocked.

We were supposed to be seeing Wicked tomorrow with my sister and mum, but if we both go, it means we won't be able to get back in.
So the husband is saying home.
Christmas present/$100+ wasted.

So i hate jerk real estate guy so much i want to punch him in the face, or as my twitter said earlier:


Hope this at least entertained some of you for a short time...

Add to all this, i got the flu/a cold while down in Melbourne and its so not fun.
Oh and i left my phone there.
