With as many times as I have relocated across the country and found various apartments to live in for each stint of various lengths it never ceases to amaze me that each location, apartment owner, or leasing representatives always find a way to create a minor crisis that has to be overcome. I accept this fact based on the previous pain and suffering that each even while completely avoidable results in  scrambling and momentary panic. 

What is amazing is that for the folks that do this for a living one would think that they would make their own life easier by just making everything clear up front and avoiding any thing resembling an assumption to avoid complications. But then again this would be the same as expecting common sense to be common. 

On the other hand I will just resign myself to the fact that this will be just practice for the closing process of buying a home since that will have suprises and mystery as well.
