It was like that when I got there; honest, Guv…

Follow-up to Putting on the writs from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

I've uploaded the photo they sent me of the stain, so you can see it if you like:

Putting on the writs

Follow-up to Warwick Hospitality Frowns on Sweating! from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

Here's the full list, in case you were curious:

Total deduction 117.02

This deduction comprises of:
Bedroom:
5 to spot clean the stains on the carpet.
6 compensation to the owner for the chip on your table.
5.14 to paint over the marks on your walls.
15 compensation to the owner for the stains on your mattress.


Turns out this is some sort of spillage. I have no idea where it came from…
Communal:
Kitchen
1.05 towards replacing the broken freezer drawer.
1.07 towards replacing two broken drinks shelf in the fridge.
1.07 towards compensation to the landlord for the chips on the garage door.

I blame Matt Ashton. I assume these are the marks left over from when he was throwing knives at the door…
1.75 towards replacing three missing grill pans.
4.16 towards replacing the missing hoover.
1.25 towards replacing the edging strip on the worktop which had been chipped and pulled off
10.00 towards compensation to the owner for the two fridge doors that we dented.
1.30 towards compensation to the owner for the broken drawer under the sink.
1.30 towards compensation to the owner for the broken kitchen door closer.
1.30 towards compensation to the owner for the panels under the cupboard that had been pulled off.
Lounge
10.41 towards replacing the three broken dining room chairs.

This one really annoys me. The old chairs seem cheap and I blame perfectly ordinary wear–and–tear.
1.30 towards compensation to the owner for the missing shelf from the lounge cupboard.
1.76 towards re–fixing the cupboard door in the lounge.
Hallways
1.80 towards getting the radiator fixed that was pulled off the wall in the hallway.
1.25 towards compensation to the owner for the burn mark in the hallway.

That, I believe, was an iron…
0.83 towards replacing the missing phone.

I didn't even know it was missing…
1.08 towards replacing the missing ironing board.
1.30 towards compensation to the owner for the lifting wallpaper above the radiator in the hallway.
5.00 towards compensation to the owner for the lifting wallpaper in the corridor by the downstairs shower.

I blame the steam from the shower, although I haven't really paid it much attention; it could have been intentional…
Ground floor shower rooms
0.71 towards the missing towel rail in the ground floor shower room.
1.30 towards compensation to the owner for the skirting board which was damaged behind the door in the ground floor shower.
1.30 towards fixing the shower door which had come off the rails.
0.71 towards the missing toilet roll holder in the ground floor shower room.
3.75 towards fixing the broken window vent in the ground floor shower room.
1.30 towards fixing the broken shower drainer in the ground floor shower room.
1.30 towards replacing the missing cup holder in the ground floor shower room.
1.30 towards fixing damage to the ceiling above the shower in the ground floor shower room.
First floor shower room
0.57 towards fixing the shower door that had come off its runner.

That was like that when we got there…
1.33 towards re–fixing the shower panel under the cubicle in the first floor shower.
General
19.16 towards extra cleaning of the house.
4.17 towards rubbish removal.

Please note that all damages in communal areas are split equally between all tenants.

The plot thickens…

Follow-up to Warwick Hospitality Frowns on Sweating! from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

Just got a reply back, with photos, and the stains are 'normal' stains (i.e. small and blob–shaped) and, from one of the photos, appear to be underneath, so I really have no idea how they got there, but they definately aren't me…

Warwick Hospitality Frowns on Sweating!

I recently recieved the (long) list of charges for last year. One of them stuck out the second time I read through it:

£15 compensation to the owner for the stains on your mattress

I can assure you all that the only possible thing this can be is sweat.

It therefore seems to me that the University is charging me £15 for sweating…

I just thought I'd share this with you as a warning to all those 2nd years who've just moved off campus: Sweating - Do Not Try This At Home!
