He posted about how he wanted to die. He didn't really state why.

Ex, you should probably be looking at seeking some professinal help. I'm not sure what anyone of us here can do to help you anymore, and it seems like you're not sure either since you removed your original post. Seriously, make a call, go see a professional. I doubt you'll regret it.

Glistam - I have been and I am taking medicine.

Freaking laptop was pissing me off, had traffic driving back here, My Comcast doesn't freaking work, and the freaking apartment building won't fix crap in my apt. It has been over 4 weeks.

Also, the job is not what I expected but really really easy.

ashlad - I am trying. thx.

The screen door is busted, the garbage disposal doesn't work, the dryer isn't vented right and the Thermosat on the AC is broken. It is reading like 87 in here currently.

It's good to know that it was the venting of frustrations from a bad day.

Have another look at the screen door. Is it just not sliding right? Is the mesh broken? Is it off its tracks? You may be able to fix that for yourself with no tools.

The dryer venting issue may just be a cleaning issue. You may be able to fix that as well.

The garbage disposal will require tools. A cheap meter, and a couple of adjustable wrenches, tongue & groove pliers, and maybe a screwdriver. That may have to wait for building maintenance.

The thermostat probably needs replaced, which you can't do. But check your intake filter; that may be the real problem, if you're lucky. You can beat the crud out of it or just remove it until building maintenance gets around to you.

None o' that stuff's your responsibility, but sometimes it feels good to take care of yourself.

Tell them you won't pay rent until they fix things. 87 F isn't exactly pleasant sleeping conditions. I would be livid.

Is it reading 87F, or is it 87F? If it's really that hot, you can just switch the A/C to On vice AUTO. If that doesn't work, the thermostat's not the problem.

It is just reading 87F.
It isn't 87 in here.

No big deal then. If you have a basic understanding of electricity, then you probably can replace the thermostat. They aren't that hard.

Hookup wires for:
Hot
Neutral
Fan
Cooling
Heat


Screw into wall. Done.

If you've got a heat pump or something different like that then your points will be different, they might be different than what I'm accustomed to just because you're further north, but you've already got an example wired up... the replacement stat should be similar-ish. You can always put the old one back if you get confused.

But yeah, not your responsibility.

But then he'd have to buy a thermostat. It doesn't make sense to dish out money to fix something when you're renting.

I agree. I didn't realize that was what you meant when you'd said "which you can't do." I thought you were saying it was too hard, I just wanted to chime in & let him know that it's not so bad.
