I have been living in this building for almost 28 years. Today, for the first time ever, I considered moving out. (I'm not counting the time the previous owners tried to force me to leave because that wasn't my decision.) I saw A RAT in the courtyard. And when I went to tell the manager of the building, who I thought I had a good professional relationship with, I found out she apparently thinks I'm a total idiot because her first reaction was to ask me if I was sure I didn't see a squirrel or a raccoon. I know what a fucking rat looks like and I said so (I didn't say "fucking" to her but you get the idea.) The problem is I live in a place where it's very hard to find good apartments, especially rent controlled like mine is and I love the neighborhood and having a pool and the fact that there's no door to door bothering people allowed and everything else up till now. I don't know what I'm going to do.
