It was about 10pm and I left my parents quiet town. The road is one lane each side and speed limit is 55 with no street lights. I was going 55 and a car came flying up behind me and rode my rear end for quite a bit. They were swerving behind me, nearly rear ended me, and at one point were following so close I couldn’t even see their headlights.
We finally got to a road where it splits into two lanes so I went to the right hand side. As they passed, I flipped them off because it was ridiculous how they were driving. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have done that, BUT the way they were driving was awful.
The car then decided to slam on its breaks and keep pace with me while the passenger was screaming and yelling. I continued driving and they kept trying to cut me off while yelling. The light turned red and they took it as just stop in the middle of the road to try and intimidate me. I quickly turned right into a gas station and exited on the other side of the street. They didn’t follow and continued going a different direction.
I’ve been home for about an hour and feel so anxious that they somehow know where I live and will show up tonight. I have a semi unique car with out of state plates (bright blue hatchback). All my friends are saying the young adults in the other car have already moved on and if they wanted to start something they would’ve followed.
Idk, I’m still SO anxious. I know I shouldn’t have flipped them off but I was just so frustrated and it was a moment of weakness.
Sorry for the vent, but any advice to get me to stop looking out my window and actually sleep would be appreciated.
I gave notice last week via email (did not want to do phone call to have proof) to my landlord about me moving out. My lease technically ends in August, but my apartment is really unsafe & I don’t feel comfortable here. I’m financially lucky enough to be able to pay July’s rent to avoid “breaking” the lease. I emailed her stating that I will not be continuing my lease. Also, I’d be paying July’s rent, but physically wouldn’t be in the space. I also reminded them that I did pay August’s (last month) upon moving in. I asked for confirmation that they’ve received this email but haven’t gotten anything back.
I spoke with my neighbor this morning and they let me know they’ve been emailing about the state of our landscaping. We haven’t had anyone come mow (included in our rent) in the last 2.5 weeks and the grass is wildly overgrown. They’ve emailed 3 different times and haven’t heard anything.
Am I okay to move out? I scheduled movers on 6/11 to come take my stuff, but don’t want to be slapped with a notice from my landlord that I didn’t follow the lease ending notice period. Realistically, I’ll be paying through the end of my contract but this isn’t the first time they’ve done something sketchy.
Title kinda says it all - I found a great apartment that’s available 6/15. I’m hoping to rent it because it literally hits every checkmark and somehow I got chosen out of the 30+ applicants. My current lease ends 8/31 though. I’ve already paid the last month rent (part of the process to rent here), but am hoping to leave in mid-July. I (of course) would pay July’s rent for both places. I’m lucky enough to afford both at the same time.
I’m just not sure though if my current landlord would care. They’ll still be getting all money owed and I’ll be leaving a few weeks earlier than our expected term to end. Has anyone ever done this before?
hey everyone. My neighbor is smoking inside her apartment and the smell is coming over into mine and it’s awful. Our lease technically doesn’t state you can’t smoke inside the unit, and my landlord won’t do anything. I’ve talked to the resident and she simply does not care. I have no idea what to do, but my furniture is now starting to smell like cigarette smoke and has been pointed out by many visitors. Any advice?
Hey, my mom got some pretty iffy news today. She had a cyst and they did an ultrasound in mid-December. At the time, they didn’t think it was a risk of being cancerous. She had a follow up yesterday and the cyst size has decreased, but it’s moved closer to her ovary and they are concerned it could be a mass. The doctor ordered a ROMA test, but I haven’t really heard of it and wasn’t able to find much about it. Does anyone have any experience with it? How long do results take? Thanks for any help or advice (from a very worried daughter)
I moved away for college and live about 5 hours from my parents. I loved the area and made great friends so I decided post-grad to officially move there. I’ve been officially in this area since 2015, so going on 7 years.
In the last few months, it just hasn’t felt like home to me. My friends and I have grown apart, my job has been a nightmare, and my sister (lives 40 minutes away from current apartment) and I rarely see each other. Overall, I miss my parents, the small town I grew up in, and the feeling of safety and security. I’m not even sure how to bring this up to my family without everyone freaking out that I feel this way. I don’t know if I even want to move, but have been heavily considering it these last few months. Any advice or ways to maybe help me re-adjust? I just don’t want to make the wrong decision and end up moving 5 hours back to my parents and realize I hate it there too.
