My belongings are still dissapearing, I've lost about 100 dollars worth of stuff in the last month. I've been pricing security systems and I can't find anything under 350 dollars because I don't already own a vcr or dvd. And I'll bet the fact that my t.v. is 30 years old will also mean more purchases.
The manager down in GA claims that if I can catch these maintenance men stealing from me on video that she will fire them instantly.
I also called around for renter's insurance. There's no point. There's a 500 dollar deductible and they won't due a full on investigation unless I've lost more than 500 dollars worth of stuff. The one agent said that because my apt. complex has no deadbolts she probably won't be able to write me up a policy at all! And we're not allowed to install deadbolts! If we do, management will just take it out!
I'm looking to move but even that is going to take quite a long time since I can't afford fair market rent. I've toyed for 12 years on moving to one of the egalitarian communities, but I just don't think I'm fit enough to handle all of the manual labor involved. In an egalitarian community you work 45 hours a week and get free room and board. All monies are shared. I'd like to get ahead and you aren't allowed to save there. On the flip side, there are many aspects of the life that are appealing.
