Why I Rent

I noticed a minor problem with my drainage pipes last week while I was shoveling the driveway.

The pipe was split, and the whole thing was coated with a thick layer of ice. I immediately took this picture and sent it to my landlord. When I came home from my grandma's this evening, the pipe was fixed.

Friday, my trunk wouldn't open. I turned the key, pulled up, but it wouldn't budge. The trunk release did nothing either. My first thought was, "Well this sucks - no more trunk!" Instead of thinking about where I should go to get it checked out, I was imagining my life without a working trunk. The next day my friend said she noticed my trunk was open and shut it for me. She was puzzled by my excitement.

Anyway, I really believe that if I owned my house and noticed my drainage pipe split and frozen over, I'd think to myself, "Well it was nice having a drainage pipe.
