Zombie Refrigerator Discovery

That’s from the dead landlord’s apartment. When did he die, 2008? His niece inherited the property. The place has been sealed up since some relatives took away his antiques about a year later. Our landlady—the niece—wanted me to check it out and sent a key, but it didn’t work, and I had to call a locksmith. So that’s roughly six years since the door’s been opened. I went in to look around. My oh my, a time capsule covered in mouse poop. But here’s the thing: the refrigerator was still on! Turned down low, but on. And there was food in there!

I’ll bet the electric water heater is still plugged in, too. Tomorrow I have to fix all that. The apartment and our house are on the same electrical circuit. If it costs ten bucks a month to run a refrigerator and a water heater turned way down, that’s $720.00, and we’ve been paying the electric bill!

    Content and orphaned comments deleted from original post that went stale. No big deal, but special thanks to commenter Bob for his remarks. There’s a lot going on at this end in the middle of my wife’s studio move, and yesterday was quite a day.
