And from the Be Careful What You Wish For Dept.:

Got to work today, noticed that the jacket I left in my locker was in a plastic bag (weird, and more than a little unsettling for someone with privacy issues.  Also, I need to buy a lock for the damned thing).  Was heading in and told not to clock in, because J needed to talk to me.

They had the bed bug sniffing dogs in while I was out, and guess where they found some?  I can't come back to work until I have a note that my house has been sprayed.  Which, of course, I have to pay for (although J suggested that my landlord should have to pay for this.  I left him a message that we have an issue to that needs to be addressed.  We'll see.  Although I still think it's a tad unfair, because we just had a resident come from a facility and brought bed bugs with her.)

Honestly, I had just wished to have one extra day off.  I need to be more specific.

There's no way to get this sorted before Monday, at least (thank you, holiday weekend).  It's frustrating as hell.

I just need to figure out a way to enjoy the enforced vacation.  That's the hard part.  While I get stuff fixed, there is no point in being miserable, right?  And this is no fault of my own, which means I can quit beating myself up.

Any second now.

Yeah, still waiting.

I'm actually really bummed that I won't be spending Easter with my residents.  :(  I've been wanting a weekend off for HOW long now?  This was not that weekend.

Merph.

Yikes! That's awful for the bed bugs and for the emotional whiplash. *hugs*

Via my mother's apartment neighbors, we became infested at our house a couple of yrs ago. They are insidious little bastards.
Why are you being targeted?
If your apartment tests "clean", can you be compensated for lost wages?
It's been a warm winter. Those little fckers did not die off this season. Everyone hold onto your hats...

I just had a panic attack on your behalf. Bedbugs are my worst nightmare. Hope you don't have an issue!

Oh dear, how annoying! How about renting the dog forst before spraying? Maybe the jacket cought it at work instead of the other way around?

That sucks about the bed bugs. I guess people can carry them. There is a client who had to get rid of them and they can be costly.

:o( How upsetting for you. How can they be sure the bed bugs came with the jacket as opposed to being already in the locker?

I hope you can get it sorted soon.

i hope you dont have bugs.

and it seems unfair to be targeted like that when they cant prove it didnt come from them. the jacket was on THEIR property, not yours. will they compensate for lost wages if you can prove your place isnt infested?
