Well, after 10+ years of knowing it could happen, after telling management last year that I was concerned it might happen- with them telling me “don’t worry about”… Today it finally happened. The ceiling above my shower / tub install fell. It was a bad patch job to begin with.
Luckily, I habitually keep the shower curtain closed. So, all of the debris was contained in the tub. Sadly, I now have a gaping hole in my ceiling- and I can see the plumbing of the tub upstairs.
The debris is soaked. It came apart in my hands as I moved it into a trash bag. Perhaps there was a leak upstairs. If so, it’s either a big one or has been collecting for some time. One good thing is that I do not see any signs of mold.
The new management is going to love me. It hasn’t been long since the end of more than 2 months of hassles over the broken dishwasher- now this. It leaves me wondering if I should tell them about the short in the ceiling fan. Lovely, ain’t it?
This apartment complex is old, tired, and falling apart from the inside out.
