Some Unfortunate Procrastination
There are a lot of weird stories on the list, but this one just might take the cake. As this person shares, their landlord was supposed to do a paint job in the apartment the first week they moved in. So far, nothing out of the ordinary. However, only after moving all their stuff, with the apartment full of unopened boxes, did they realize the landlord had other plans.
As it turns out, that same week he celebrated a questionable, little-known, but apparently very important, holiday, and he informed them the paint job would have to wait another week. They had to wait another week and a half before they could open the boxes and start decorating the apartment, which made for quite an uncomfortable situation.
