Bad management

I guess I have really been went "Missing In Action" for the past week. Since grandma has went to Penang, Elaine's and my hands have been very busy with taking care of Keith while we work. To make things even worse there are some people whom have added to our hardship. I have been on the edge of losing my cool now.

First of all I will talk about is my condo management. The other day I was just chatting with Chanel on MSN (it was the first time I chatted with her on MSN) and I even mentioned how bad the management was, especially with the lift breaking down often. A few days later the lifts really broke down and this time for an extended period. I am really wondering why this have to keep happening. Why the situation is always 2 lifts breaking down together? Why they don't repair it as soon as possible, especially when only one broke down?

This was what happened, on Saturday night after I got back from work, I was greeted by 2 of the yellow signs below.

Imagine walking up 16 floors, carrying Keith, baby bags, food and the laptop. The next day, Sunday, it was still not fixed, we had to take the stairs down as well as up again at night. I wonder what have they done for the whole 24 hours. We took the stairs down again on Monday because the lifts were only useable by 5pm on Monday. This is the second time I am ranting about this but between my first complaint post and this post, we have taken the stairs umpteen times already.

I would consider that we were very lucky that Grandma is not around during this period because with her health condition I don't think she can take the steep stairs even only to the second floor. Then we might have to stay at a hotel instead and burn a hole in my pocket for such poor management.

We were indeed so very mad but there is no place that we can complain to.

btw, I am not staying at the same place as Chanel..... her management is way better than mine.

did you write a letter to your management?This isn't a good management at all.Take more extra careful ok!Kind of dangeroud to take the stairs.Take care:)

peter & joyce : Well that is really a good suggestion if I only work 8-9 hours a day, but we work 13-14 hours a day plus we have to juggle between work and taking care of Keith too :P

sweetiepie : Honestly whether we write the letter or not, it doesn't really matter because it will always fall on deaf ears.... Many have done so but still matters are left unsloved :(

Your apartment got commitee right? Team up and complain to management. Negotiate with them that if this ever happened, change them!

We just have a new committee 3 months ago, along with a new 5 months old management team too. But sadly nothing much have changed, in fact the lift had broken down more often since :P
