Woke up this morning to my bathroom ceiling leaking AGAIN in the exact same place it was last time - dripping through the area that had been repaired and repainted and what have you. I am so not in the mood to deal with this.
In addition the bulbs in the fixture over my kitchen sink burned out so I replaced them to no avail. Since I had to call my super this morning anyway I decided to try to kill two birds with one stone. The following conversation ensued:
Me: "The fixture above my kitchen sink isn't working. I replaced the light bulbs but it still won't turn on. I think it may be a wiring problem."
Super: "What bulbs did you use?"
Me: "60 watt - the same kind that were in there previously."
Super: "Maybe it will work if you use energy saver bulbs."
Me: "....I....what? No, I don't think it matters what KIND of bulbs you use as long as the wattage is correct." I doubt energy saver bulbs even existed when this building was built. And also, I'm not an electrician but...what?
Super: "Ok I'll talk to the landlord."
You have no idea how to fix a wiring problem, do you. I am never going to have lights in my kitchen again, am I.
