Angry scribble cat

Nothing like living in an apartment to show you how stupid some people are...

2:30 AM. I was sound asleep. Heard a crash and woke up with a start. Jumped out of bed to a really odd sound -- water running? In my kitchen?

The light in there didn't work, so I had to move a lamp so I could see.

The kitchen ceiling light was on the floor. Water was flooding out of my ceiling. The kitchen floor (lower than the rest of the floors) had a half-inch or so of standing water.

Called the apartment emergency line. A full hour later, someone arrived.

Now, 12 hours later, I've had three different groups of people inspecting my apartment.

"Major water damage"

I'm going to have to move out of my apartment for 1-2 weeks, starting as early as tomorrow. Where am I going? I have no idea.

Why did this happen? Some complete and utter idiot turned his faucet on full force and then left his apartment for the night. Why would anyone do that?

I wish the apartment complex would make him pay for all of the repairs. I wish he would have to pay for my arrangements and everyone else who has to move because of this.

I'm so exhausted. I've had 4-5 hours of sleep per night for the last week, and last night I was up at 2:30. There are currently massive fans and a dehumidifier almost as big as me set up in my kitchen, they're so loud I can barely think.

It's probably a good thing I don't know which neighbor it was...
