lease update

23 January 2009

Soo.. anybody here interested about the lease? NO? well, I'm still gonna talk about it. Hehe. So I talked to the lessor or landlord (well, I don't really like calling him landlord. cuz he's not the real owner, and he's not my lord.... he's only the caretaker. Anyway, let's just call him d!ckhead for easier reference.

I personally talked to the Owner of the bldg. (cuz they just arrived from abroad), and guess what the old couple told me? They said.. that I should've been the one to 'give way' to d!ckhead. That I should've backed-off cuz he was upset. and I told that fuckin old lady that I didn't even argue with him! D1ckhead was the one yelling at me, when all I did was request if he can give the papers to me here in my shop.. since I couldn't leave that day. That's the last straw for me, I thought they would be more understanding... hey, I'm the paying tenant but nope, they're on d*ckhead's side and won't even listen. They said they trusted d*ckhead, and he is the one who decides. Wow.. talk about customer support, eh?

I really thought I could still stay here, if the Owner at least apologized for d!ckhead's behavior. I am a pacifist... and I was expecting that they'd somehow talk to him and straighten him up. But I was beyond disappointed with how they handled it. Stressing the blame on me. Not at all professional, they're all a bunch of bullsh!tters!

So after that conversation, I talked to d!ckhead (under my mom's watch, cuz otherwise if i talk to him alone.. he acts like he is superior over me. cuz i'm younger AND a female.) And I told him I'm gonna use my advance payment + my 1 month deposit until March. I'm NOT gonna renew the contract, and that's final.

Now, I know why a lot of businesses don't stay in this building for long.

for my poor pride

just really want to vent out right now.. my head feels like it's about to explode anytime soon.

It's January, this time of the year is the renewal of mayor's permit and paperworks for my computer shop. so 2 weeks ago, I've been asking the lessor (the one who's leasing the office space of Redge Computer), to give me a lease of contract cuz it's part of the requirement to get my permit. He's been putting it off for days... saying different excuses everytime. First was, (reason 1) his lawyer cannot notarize because her license expired. He won't be able to give me one until Jan. 30th, and that's not really what I wanted to hear.. since that would mean that I would incur penalties in the mayor's office for filling late. I asked him, nicely, if he can find other lawyers. So then he 'said' that he looked but (reason 2) he can't find one cuz they're all busy. fucking bullshit! so then he told me that they're just gonna go with their current lawyer (the one who has an expired license) but he said that there shouldn't be any problem with the paper. I don't know if that is legal or not, using a 2008 license for 2009 documents. I don't have any background on that, but I do think that if there is a problem... it would be their lawyer's ass who can get sued. so I said fine, as long as it's acceptable. So that was settled Friday, he said the contract should be ready by monday. Monday came, (3) he said tomorrow. Tuesday I asked him if it's ready, (4) he said tomorrow. Wednesday, (5) he said tomorrow again. and I've told him before that I cannot leave the shop, unless someone would be there to watch out for it (which is my bestfriend). Thursday came and I was busy with SSS paperworks, so I've asked my bestfriend to watch the shop for me that morning. When I arrived at the shop that afternooon, (after my bestfriend just left) the Lessor called and said that I have to go with him to the lawyer at 3pm. I said I couldn't, I just arrived... nobody's gonna look out for the shop since my friend just left and went to work. I told him to bring the documents that I have to sign, here in the shop.. since I cannot leave. He said that he can't, I have to go with him. So really I can't leave, because I have customers and there's no one who could replace me. I explained that on my apartment (where I sleep), the lessor there brings us the documents to sign. He said he's not like that... because that would mean he's gonna go back and forth to the lawyer and me, and he's really busy. Lessor suggests that he's taking my mom instead to sign for me. I texted my mom, she got angry and said... why would she sign she's not frickin Regina F*ll*r*s. Great. Then mom said that I should wait till Lessor hand the contract to me, and she doesn't want me to sign anything cuz mom wants to read the said contract first. So I told the Lessor that, he got angry... and told me different stuff... raising his voice at me... he said I've been rushing him and now that he's free, why won't I just close my shop.. he said that doesn't your mom read the previous contract, it's basically the same... yada yada... i told him I'm just not gonna sign until mom reads it (cuz otherwise, mom would get angry at me. I know I'm the owner of the shop. But i still have respect for my mother.) he said that the lawyer was already on vacation or at home, and he asked her to go back to office just to make the papers and all that stuff. So really, he was yelling at me at that time (over the phone). I am a very quiet person, it's not in my nature to be rude to older people. I stayed quiet, and told him that fine, if he can't bring it to me... then I'm not gonna renew the contract.. I'm just gonna use my 2 months advance payment. so then he asked for my mom's number. After that, they had face-to-face confrontation. I don't know what was exchanged, cuz I was still here at the shop.. they were downstairs. mom summarized that Lessor raised his voice at her too, and she did the same. words were exchanged, it was a pretty heated conversation. so now my mom is pissed too, and she doesn't want me to renew the contract. As of right now, I'm beyond angry... cuz he's been treating me like an idiot. This is not the first time he's been rude to me. Everytime I ask for a request (like for an electricity in the toilet), he's always putting it off.. and when I follow up on the request, he gets pissed and becomes rude to me. So I've been thinking about it since yesterday and last night.. and this morning.. and I realized that I OWE HIM NOTHING! I always paid him on time, if he requests that I pay him earlier because he's short in money, I do that.. without complaining. if he needs keys on the building's gate, because his stupid relatives locked themselves inside.. I wake up at 7am to give him my keys! I've been too nice to him, and then for him to just yell at me.. I can no longer tolerate that. he's pissed cuz i can't go for ONE frickin day, when I've been waiting for him to do that contract for almost 2 weeks! when I know he can bring the documents to me... he's just being lazy.

so now my problem is I don't really want to stay here any longer... I want to move my computer shop. But at this time there are no vacancies left for office space. If I find one, it's gonna be too far from my current customers (which are mostly college/highschool students).. and I have to do it soon. If I can't find one, I'm thinking I'm just gonna close the shop... and... I don't know...put the computers on storage... really, I don't know... I'm having a huge headache right now.

If I stay, I know he's gonna bullshit me again. and I don't want any of that. I put up my own business so I won't have to put up with anyone's shit and those fuckwits. He should be nice to me cuz I am paying him!

sorry if this is too long, and please excuse the language. this is how i often clear my head.. I put my feelings into words... try to separate my emotions and look if i'm just being dramatic or overly dramatic.. and then I get decisions from it.. this would be over soon. hopefully. help me God.

A Puzzle

06 January 2009

Sharing with you a little something I've received via email, maybe it would brighten your day... :)

Imagine you are in Africa .. You have been tied hanging on a tree with a rope anchored on the ground, a candle is slowly burning the rope,and the lion is waiting for you to drop and be his lunch.



Your survival hinges on the rope staying intact, there is no one around to help you. The only possible way is to somehow convince the lion to BLOW the candle out. How do you do that?

Winter Wonder-Err!

Happy New Year Everyone! I'm back!!! Who missed me?

So I spent my Christmas with family in Washington. I wished for snow, so I can snowboard again. But you know about the old saying.."be careful what you wish for." Cuz I got just that!

Dec. 21, I arrived in Seattle. It was packed... with snow and people. I was fortunate enough that my flight arrived on time, and I didn't lose any of my luggages. Most travelers did. Some have been in the airport for days, they can't even change their clothes.. and flights were canceled one after another because of the weather. First day and I realized what a mistake it is to wish for snow. Don't get me wrong, snow is pretty.. but they should stay in the mountains. Hehe. Because of the thick ice, our car got stuck... and we have to push... and push... and push again.. still it won't move. :p

Dec. 22, my sister arrived from another state. Unfortunately, she lost her luggage in the airport. We were ready to go home and eat... but then the car got stuck again. Shovel, push, shovel, push...

Dec. 23, we don't have a car.. it got stuck, again. So we decided to walk to the nearest mall, to shop and dine. Took about 30 minutes to get there. And then we got a good news, FedEx called my sister... and they're delivering her lost luggage. Yipee. But there's bad news, they won't leave her luggage at home... so instead they're following us to the mall to give her the luggage. Huh! We couldn't hire a taxi. All companies we've called are busy, so nothing left to do but -- woot.. drag the 50 lbs. luggage all the way home. At least she only brought one. :p

Dec. 24, another sister decided to finally put some snow tires on, cost about more than $600, but at least we'd be able to move around. We finally bought christmas decors, our christmas tree, xmas gifts.. and xmas foods!

Christmas Eve - opening of presents!!!

Christmas Day - went out to watch "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, " with 4 sisters. It was a great movie. Me and siblings thought... *warning: movie spoiler* .. at least I'd be cute when I die. Hehehe.

Dec. 26 - umm. what happened? I slept? ... and did my laundry.

Dec. 27 - I started packing my stuff up. We went out that night, to visit Bellevue Square and dine at Yama - a japanese restaurant.

Dec. 28th - Woke up when sister asked me, "what time are you leaving?" and I check the clock, it's already 9am! Eeeeekk! my flight is at 12 noon. Good thing, there were no major traffic. I'm still lucky. Hehe. Left Washington, back to P.I. Where the sun is shining, and my skin doesn't dry... and St. Ives won't irritate it.. and I'll have my milk lotion. :p It's nice to be home!

Again, with the question, who missed me? :)

It might take a while for Santa to load... but here are some pics. Enjoy!
