One lot of tenants moved out on Thursday.  We didn’t have anyone to move in straight away, so C convinced me on Friday evening not to go and do my usual cleanup.  After all, there wasn’t any hurry, was there?  I allowed myself to be lulled into a false sense of security, and spend Friday evening being spoiled by C.

Anyhow, yesterday morning I got a phone call.  We had a prospective tenant who wanted to move in ASAP.  Guess who had to run around like a mad creature to get the property ready?!  Still, I got there in the end, the tenant took the property, and it was all neat and clean to a reasonable standard by the time he moved in.  I was knackered by the end of it, but it was definitely the fastest turnover of a property I’ve ever done.

In more news on properties, we had a pest inspection done of one of the others earlier this week.  I’d been concerned that we had bedbugs in it, but fortunately we don’t.  Not that I care, especially, but it’s an awfully expensive process to get the property sprayed – starts at about $1,000 – and it has to be repeated between 14 and 21 days later, to kill the eggs and break the life cycle.  So that was some extremely good news.

Work has been crap.  I left a training session on Friday because the officer in charge was being an ignorant pig.  I’m extremely patient (and a reasonably good trainer, if I do say so myself) but I’ve had enough of this crap.  Two more sessions, and I’m done with training.  And in some other work-related news, I have a contract for six months at another agency, starting early January.  I can’t wait.  I’m overdue for a new workplace.  The best part is, there will be no training involved.  Yay!!
