12. "I'm weird and contradicary"
In response to In response to 11



I've been very frugal most of my life but I have always had times where I spend money that doesn't make sense.

I have fixed a few things in the house, I feel weird asking the landlord although that really is what he should do. I replaced two door knobs, $10 each. I fixed a leaky shower that he had looked at before and didn't fix. I swapped the shower head with one I already had in the other shower. He had an obnoxiously small ceiling fan in one room and I asked if I could replace it when I first moved in. He told me he would do it. I already had one so he installed it. I didn't realize he wanted to do it because the wiring is weird.

This last one is in the bedroom and I didn't want to move the bed so he had access to it so I figured I'll just do it myself. When I found out how weird the wiring was I just returned the ceiling fan. So I don't think I've spent a ton on fixing the house. If I spent anything over $20 I plan to take with me.

The yard is one that I don't know. Since there is rocks it's annoying to remove weeds/grass. He was paying someone to do it for the first few years then stopped. So I've been taking care of it but he really needs to have someone work on it. I figure they need to remove everything and do a fresh install. I'm not paying for that lol I also have always wanted him to replace the carpeting but I don't wanna deal with that, I'll just live with it.

One door always gets stuck when it gets humid and it started peeling apart. I did a a shoddy fix on that but I think I might have him fix that.

I think when they last painted the house they just caked on the paint. They even painted over outlets so plugging stuff in was hard the first time lol. Some outlets don't even work.
