In reference to when she said "I would like to sleep once in a while, but people keep knocking on my door", I was reminded of having been told by a resident of one of bha's buildings of how BHA (barre housing "authority")treats their tenants; residents are not allowed to sleep after 8 am. they are supposed to be waiting at their door at 9 am to open it when BHA comes to inspect the apartment, and inspect the smoke detector, and inspect the fire extinguisher, and the windows, or have the windows washed, and bed inspection for bed bugs, and inspection for ants, etc. if you want your air conditioner installed, they charge you $65. you can't make any type of changes to your apartment; but if you want a rug laid out on a floor, BHA has to do it and they charge $200. if you have a neighbor who smokes and the smoke gets into your apartment, you can't do anything about it including complaining to bha, because bha doesn't care. so you will get cancer and emphysema and die. and neither you nor your relatives can sue bha since bha are above the law because they are the law (hence the name "authority"). if you are 10 days late with your rent, bha charges $10 (it used to be $25). if you don't pay your rent within the same month it is due, bha threatens you with eviction. and if they take you to court over it, they threaten that you will have to pay their court costs.
real nice "people" these bha are (not).
