pond froth


I don't know if I can do this.

I've just been spoken to as if I am the scum of the earth by a Lettings Agent. We've been advised by all the debt people to be straight up with people when trying to find somewhere to live. I don't think I can open myself up to that kind of behaviour, though.

I feel dreadful.

Edited to say: We have booked a court appointment for the 4th of September. That's the earliest they can fit us in. So it gives us a couple of weeks to sort something out accommodation-wise.

  1. Try to let it go, Ally. It's not your fault, what's happened. If it was really objectionable, then you or B should write and complain to the person's manager, but it might be less stressful to steel yourself and put it behind you.

    None of your real friends (and I include those of us who haven't yet met you) think one bit the less of you for what's happening. We think you're pretty damn marvellous for facing up to it and dealing with it. xx

  3. I think it's my own shame that it's triggered - that's the thing I'm finding hard to deal with. But you are right, and I am trying.

  7. Go to an estate agents that also does lettings, not a lettings agent.

    The first is feeling the credit pinch (estate agents are closing down around here) and will empathise and be grateful for the work.

    The second is probably some spoiled oik used to fleecing people on the DSS and lower incomes, and letting out dodgy 'student' properties without the proper H&S checks etc.

    And I echo what Z said.
