I had an experience today and I feel somehow that others might be able to relate..on a number of levels.
So my oven died a month ago, just the baking element on the bottom with the burners still working but there has been no baking in this house for a while now (not that my kids are crying over that, my cookies are usually burnt and they call my bread "mom's lead bread") however that is not the point. The point is that because I rent, it should be my landlord's responsibility to get me a new oven, right?? His response: "No, I don't think so, I would rather you just bought your own". Hmmm.
