Can I just tell you how much I hate mosquitos? And because I live in a house owned by a slumlord, he refuses to replace the screens - so my house is usually infested with them. And oh yeah, I'm allergic. :(

Right - so you want to foot the bill of at least 10 custom made screens for a house that I don't even own???

You need to go find yourself a sugar daddy.

I think you have three options on the windows once you've had the screens custom made.

1) Deduct the amount from your rent check.

2) Take them with you when you leave.

3) Sell them when you're ready to move to the landlord, the next tennant or the neighbors. (For a small profit, of course.)

my .02.

I like #1 - but I'm not sure it's legal in DC where tenant's rights are a joke. At any rate - I can't afford to front that kind of money! So it'll be me in a turtle neck and sweats hanging out all summer! :(

by the way, in your neighborhood you need bars, not screens over your windows.

Well, dumbass, I don't have air except in the bedrooms. So maybe I should just lock my myself in my room all summer? Got any more smart ideas?

I do have bars over the windows. I also need bars over the doors. (see story about 3 months ago when a crackhead kicked the door in) However, the historic preservation society feels it is more important to preserve the ghetto than preserve my safety! :tongue:

Depends on whether or not there's lots of interesting stuff going on in your bedroom all summer.

right? im sure that you can find something interesting to do in the bedroom all summer. :) give ed's business card to your landlord and tell him that you'll have your lawyer contact him on the matter, that normally works, but hey, you are in dc. your landlord could probably give a rat's ass, anyway, how much do the screens cost? maybe we can start up a fund?
