Ok, Wed. am I rec'd an email from owner's rep stating they would be at house 9:00am today (Fri) to get another estimate on refinishing hardwood floors. I knew I couldn't take off work then so per a great idea from a member here, I emailed back and said that I couldn't accommodate yet another visit by taking off work to be here or remove my dogs. I could however, if they would reschedule to a time outside my work hours and then they wouldn't even need to be here if they didn't want to. If that wasn't acceptable to them, then I will leave my dogs in the bathroom so please don't open the door to the bathroom. This is the reply I got back from owner's rep: So I replied: I don't know why you are interpretting it as me trying to deny access. I was just trying to inform you that I can't be there or remove my dogs from the house again for you this month. I will, however, shut them up in the bathroom so they don't interfere with someone looking at the wood flooring. As an option, I was offering to be there when I'm not working so you or the owner don't have to take your time to meet the people. Now this morning, I had an eery feeling and decided to stay at home until shortly before they came so I called into work and said I'd be there by 9:00. I then decided I had done all I could do at home, so I put the dogs in the bathroom and walked out the front door to go to work at 8:10. There was a strange vehicle parked in front of the house, right behind my car, and a lady was in it who I thought was the owner. I got into my car and glanced in my rear view mirror then she looked like she was talking on a cell phone. I left then thought again that this looked suspicious so I went around the block and stopped at a stop sign 1 block away to watch. A van with a plumbing co's name painted on it stopped near the house and then three people, one being the lady in the vehicle I'd seen, walked right into the house. It wasn't even 8:20 at that point. I drove up in front of my house and snapped a photo of the front door open and this van parked in front, hoping to get proof that these people had watched for me to leave then entered the house and it wasn't even close to 9:00, however my darn setting to date/time stamp the photo wasn't on. Anyway, I'm really in the mood to whip out a nasty email to the owner's rep telling her she can quit sweating me not allowing access now because clearly the owner just sits and waits for me to leave and enters with whomever she wants whenever she wants and since she's such a stickler for following those rules in the lease to a Tee, I think something needs to be done about this. It's more than obvious at this point that I'm not the one who has "access issues" or who can't respect another person's rights in this contractural agreement. I'm livid about this koi I've put up with from owner's rep, knowing I wasn't being unreasonable, only to find this person watching the house to see when I leave so she can enter. The original email said 9:00 and with someone for an estimate to refinish floors. I can't help but wonder how many other times I've been watched by this woman and she's come in the house 5 mins after I leave. Furthermore, they knew I was shutting dogs up in the bathroom. If they wanted to look at plumbing (there are no plumbing problems that I know of), they should have told me so the bathroom would be accessible without my dogs in there. Another thing, they left lights on- like the light over the stove. The last time I came home to find my coffee pot (with clock/timer) unplugged. This stuff bugs me!!
