This pales in comparison to the casualties in the war and I hate putting it adjacent to posts about the war.
With 2 weeks to go before my moving into my new Condo I got a letter from the builder that they are extending my moving date another 2 weeks. The old date was ideal for me, the new date is terrible in terms of the my work load and in terms of getting a mover. It also screws up the arrangements that I have made and now have to re-make. The letter from the builder basically says that they don't consider the delays their fault (I don't see how having nice weather all summer can cause construction delays) and that if I suffer any inconvenience or extra costs because of the delay that's just too bad. To make matters more frustrating I can never get hold of anyone at the builder, property manager or customer service (I am beginning to think that the customer service telephone line was just put in as a bad joke).
