Yeah, so I spent over an hour trying to break into an apartment this afternoon.
Inside the apartment is my camera, a bag of clothes and oh yeah, a CAT.
I wasn't given the key to the doorhandle lock by the owner, and now she is in Europe and Iraq, and I have to somehow get into this apartment before I head off to North Carolina tomorrow afternoon.
Fun fun fun. I tried using paperclips and a letter-opener and now I have totally screwed up the lock. I got in contact with a locksmith afterwards, and hopefully they will help me out in the morning. But still, it's a pain in the arse.
Then I went to visit a potential dog-sitting client this evening, and she picked me up from the station. First thing i smelt in the car? Dog piss. Lovely.
She drove me to her place. And BOY did I smell it there. Totally gross and I was there for an hour and I could hardly stand it. I am supposed to be staying there for 2 weeks to look after her dog.
So what do I do? It's $150 for staying there for 2 weeks. Should I try and cover up the smell with sprays and smelly things, or just tell her that something else has come up and look for an alternative.
The downsides of pet-sitting. *sigh*
