Can’t find my copy of Pokemon black. I know I packed it and took it with me from Bangkok, so that means it’s just shoved somewhere. I hope. Fuck.
After a bunch of issues with my credit card and loosing a ton of money to air asia, I’m here. I know I should get out and explore, but honestly I’m just so damn tired… probably just gonna nap until later and go in search of cheap food.
Basically, I was supposed to give up one month’s deposit (I’d paid two) plus any bills that I hadn’t paid that month. I’d paid the water bill a few days before, and the electricity bill hadn’t arrived, but it shouldn’t have been that much (it was just for less than a month after all). We were supposed to meet at 10am, at my apartment, she’d look over it and discuss my deposit.
Long story short she wound up showing up an hour late, lying about where she was. We’d (my representative from my realtor company) called her a bit before ten and she said that she was on her way, and that she was just a few BTS stations away (less than a 10 minute drive). We waited close to an hour before calling her again, where she was extremely rude, and finally showed up an hour late with an attitude.
She kept ignoring me, refused to speak directly to me, and kept demanding massive amounts of money. First she was saying that she didn’t have to give me any of my deposit back because I’d broken the lease (JFC I left like 2 weeks early, not MONTHS). Which in the lease I pointed out that I only have to forefit one month, which is fair.
And then she kept yelling about how the electricity bill was almost 3,000 baht, which was impossible. I’d never had it be that for a full month. Never even CLOSE to that. I didn’t have a physical bill, but she was saying she could check it online. I asked her to show me previous months bills, which she was apparently unable to do, which I think is crap.
Then, while I was sitting like 5 feet away, she kept bitching about me in Thai (like I couldn’t figure out she was talking about me) to other workers in the building, telling them how much my bill was and whatnot. Which, fuck you, is not any of their business. And even though I had paid the water bill a few days before, and had barely used any in the time after, she had this big attitude, yelling “YOU NEED TO GO PAY THE WATER BILL WE NEED TO CHECK THE METER”. Even though I kept saying “Sure, yeah, that’s fine.” (The bill wound up being like $1.10, no shit) She kept being a giant bitch about it. I was polite the entire time, but I finally was like “You know what, it’s fine. You know you’re wrong, and you have to live with yourself. If you’re that petty over a few dollars, there’s more wrong with you than that.” You bring nasty karma on yourself with that shit, and I’m not gonna let your shit drag me down.
Instead of getting back what I figured should be about 6,000 baht minimum, I got back around 4,600. Which I was like “Sure, okay, whatever.” I emailed my experience to the head of the realty company, basically saying “Hey, I know none of this is your fault, but you might want to talk to her before you set up another client with her, especially a Westerner”
I’m currently at a friend’s apartment waiting to grab a taxi to the airport. I’m a little nervous, but I feel much better since I’ve weighed my luggage and apparently I’m a bit under the weight limit for Air Asia, there fore I’m quite a bit under the limit for United.
Freaking out though because my friend kinda sorta flaked on me, but apparently found someone to pick me up now, so I’m hoping everything turns out alright. *fingers crossed*
Today, I got a massage and a filling done, both of which are a little weird and left me kinda sore, and then I went to Terminal 21 one last time to go to Tony Roma’s and Baskin Robbins. I was gonna go see a movie in 4D, but wound up deciding against it, to use the money to buy a scale instead.
I wanted to do something super exciting for my last day, but I’m kinda glad I didn’t. It’s nice to leave Thailand how I entered it, calmly and with just a few questions.
Wave of exhaustion just hit me. I have no where to sleep until probably 1pm, and that’s if my friend let’s me nap in his bed. It’s 9am now. FML.
Ugggh Oh my God I can’t sleep I’m so fucking stressed I can’t sleep. I tried and my body isn’t letting me and my eyes hurt and my head hurts and I won’t even have anywhere to really sleep until I get to my hostel in Tokyo so I know I should be appreciating my bed while I have it but I just can’t because I’m so stressed out my body won’t relax.
I’m paranoid about my luggage. I’m like, so afraid it’s crazy heavy and Air Asia is gonna freak out and charge me a billion dollars. Part of me is screaming that there’s no way that it weighs that much. That I only brought less than 80 pounds with me and I doubt that I somehow added like 40 pounds to that but I’m so damn paranoid that I’m freaking out.
And I’m paranoid about talking to my landlord, because I don’t speak Thai and I’m wary of the person the realty company is sending because the last person’s English wasn’t as great as it could have been which was stressful.
It’s bad when going to the dentist is the /least/ stressful part of my day.
Tempted to buy a scale and return it just to weigh my luggage. I mean, I feel like it’s probably all gravy… but who knows… maybe if it’s cheap…
I just wish I could sleep right now…
Significant progress has been made!
All of my luggage has been removed from my apartment. Now I just have my laptop case, my purse, by Superboy jacket and a change of clothes. Now I just gotta finish wiping everything down and throw away/eat everything from my fridge and it’s all good.
Dentist appointment tomorrow at noon, and then nothing to do until I head to the airport, probably at 4 am (flight is at 8:30, like 40 minutes to get there yada yada yada).
And then I’m Tokyo bound!
The only thing is I have a balls ton of luggage… >.< I just realized it’s going to be a pain in the nads getting to and from the airport.
Almost got the last bit of stuff out of my apartment~! Now it’s just tiny scatters of shit and things I”m gonna throw away.
I’m taking a moment to burn some candles and watch the sunrise, for what will probably be my last chance to do so in Bangkok. I’m stressed to hell, and I haven’t slept properly in days, but I just want to remember the fact that I did this. I left the country by myself and survived by myself and that I’m a lot stronger than I think.
We didn’t always agree, but thanks, Bangkok, for showing me that.
God I hate higher one.
I kept trying to pull money out of my account today only to keep getting ‘inactive account’ messages. Which is crap. My account is active. I just used it a few days ago. There’s money on it. Money that I actually NEED so…
