My boyfriend and I were promised a loft apartment for the fall semester by my current landlord. We found out that the current students living there were moving out early, so we asked if we could move in early (it would give him more time to find students to rent the opening) because where he has us now is absolutely terrible (bad neighbors and lingering flood damage). So, he decides to tell us that while he promised us the loft, that he also told someone else the same thing. Someone else gets first dibs since we are already in an apartment, even though the only reason we moved into it for the spring semester is because we were told the loft would be ours for the fall term.
Ugh. It has annoyed me to the point that we'll be looking for our, drum roll please.. 5th apartment.
