In my first apartment when the oven broke they came and carted it away with all of our pots and pans inside. Just before we moved out a family of birds moved in to the bedroom ceiling and had a lot of very noisy babies. In my second apartment, they redid the siding while we were there. This meant tearing a big hole in outside wall so that a family of squirrels could climb inside the wall and make a nest. Eventually they chewed a little window out of the drywall so they could peek in on us in our living room. When we called maintenance about it they came in and stapled pieces of cardboard over the holes with a staple gun. We also had a sliding closet door that would fall off every time we looked at it wrong. When I finally got someone to come in and fix it, it was a tiny little middle-aged lady who just hung it back up. As soon as she left I opened the closet and the door just fell back off. At our last apartment, our neighbor provoked some guys loitering in front of the nearest gas station and they chased him back to our complex where he ran up the stairs in front of our house. I guess they figured our apartment must be his, because we were just eating dinner when a gigantic chunk of asphalt came shattering through our window. The landlord did not fix it for the entire 3 months we lived there. I even called the city on him and nothing. They never returned our security deposit. And in my current apartment the light in the kitchen has been non-functional for oh... 3 months now? At first we didn't call because we needed to do the dishes... Then we called and never got a response. Then we called again and the landlord called back and asked us to call the repairman ourselves. We just use the light over the stove.
