Thank you, DocBastard. Also, I'm not one of those crazy Americans portrayed on television who feels the need to sue for everything. First off, maintenance is admitting the fixed something wrong. Second, I've made some pretty big mistakes in my life too. Third, I'd rather not put the apartment complex whet I live in any financial turmoil, I like it here and I need a place to live.

Maintenance man: I'm here to fix your leaky pipe, ma'am. Woman: Oh, it's so leaky. Maintenance man: And it's getting you so wet. Woman: Yes, so wet! Maintenance man: Let me get out my tool...

Not trying to be mean... But from what I've experienced in my life most maintenance teams half ass everything and are lazy. I hope you have renter's insurance if so anything damaged or destroyed won't const too much.

17 - I never said anything about not being happy to have a home to come back to. Unless I missed that part of my own FML, in which case, I sincerely apologize for not knowing my own thoughts and Internet postings.

25 - Although nobody knows what happened better than you, I do believe #17 is saying it was better to come home and find the pipes busted as compared to being home at the time.

17 - I apologize, I misread your comment and realized after it was too late to edit. However, I would have rather I had been home. Then I could have taken care of it before I had significant water damage throughout the floors in my apartment.

Maby they didn't half ass it, many they fixed the pipe, but there was already enough water damage that over the 3 days the weight of the ceiling folded in on itself.

I really hope you have renter's insurance. Otherwise you are screwed. The company sent out maintenance, they claimed to fix it, and I'm sure that's the story they will stick to. FYL OP!

They're actually admitting to fixing it wrong. And my boyfriend and I got a month and half rent free out of it. Luckily, we have renters insurance as well.

Be careful. We had something like this happen, and similarly the apartment folks bent over backwards to fix it. However, the dampness in the ceiling caused mold to grow, and my wife ended up getting pretty sick because of it.

The one good thing here is the my boyfriends uncle is a mold specialist, so if we have any concerns we can call him. I'll make sure to be in the lookout though, thanks.

You evidently didn't make them enough tea/coffee. Everybody knows maintenance workers in particular love complimentary drinks for jobs you pay them to do.

16- Doc's right. If we didn't have grammar nazi's patrolling the FML community streets, then we would have a loooot more people tawking liek dis becuyz well it luuks kewl. Grammar Nazi's not only correct mistakes, but prevent them from happening in the future.

Im only saying that you don't need to correct every mistake. I know it was their instead of there. But auto correct changes things weirdly. If I write something similar it changes it completely. This should be a fun app, not am app that requires people fixing ever mistake.

Well thanks for not being a greedy bastard and suing like most people would; hopefully your maturity and kindness toward the situation will put you in good light and get you a new ceiling fast and cheap.

Today, it's my birthday and I'd planned to take my family and friends to dinner with my own money. My mom just informed me that she'd messaged everyone that I'd canceled the dinner. She instead wants to use my money to buy my older brother a gun for his birthday, which is in two days. FML
