Why? Because too many things are expected of you.
You must be smart, kind, fleet of foot and dare I say spunky.
You must also be diplomatic and have grace under fire.
I don’t like to brag but I have all those things so if you move here I am what you should aim to be.
I’ll give you an example.
About a week ago my Super Lester asked to enter my apartment since either the apartment above or below me had a bad leak and he would need to go though MY wall to fix it.
I must remind you that for a NYC apartment dweller the people of importance in your life are your immediate family, close friends and right before either of them is your Super.
So when Lester said he needed to do this I graciously agreed.
Now remember, I don’t have a leak. MY floors are dry as a bone and I couldn’t pick the people above or below me in a line up but because I have at times been called ‘saintly’ I gave the go ahead to my dear Super who I’ve needed in the past and may need again one of these days.
Also I’m kind of walking on eggshells with him for calling him a pussy when he was changing my light fixture. These latinos can hold a grudge.
So he went about making a giant hole in my wall. Well maybe not giant but not so little either.
He worked on it all day and when he left he covered it with some plastic shit.
A few days passed and I decided to text him a little nudge
I gave him a bit more time before my second little hint was sent to him.
Still patient I gave him a small heads up.
In answer to my question of did he know when he’s closing the hole he did say “yes”
So he does know. I, however, don’t.
