Ok... as my friends here know, I am 9 months pregnant and I rarely, if at all, sleep during the night. It froze here last night and our heating wouldn't come on, so this morning my husband called the landlord to tell him about it. I asked specifically in my sleepy state that someone call me to let me know if and when the repair people were coming... so, at 9:15 when there is a loud knock on my door, I don't get up. I'm in my pajamas, been asleep for maybe four hours, and am thinking to myself 'who comes over without calling?' So, they leave eventually, after a few more knocks, and now I can't go back to bed and am livid. Was I rude not to answer? My way of thinking is that I am super-pregnant, could go into labor anytime, and the least they could do is call to see when will be a convienient time... or to see if I'll even be home. So, Mylot, what do you think? Am I rude or are they? And shouldn't they call first?

They are definitely the rude ones. That is their fault for not calling you in advance to begin with. I like to have advance notice if someone is coming to my house. I may be asleep or in the shower or whatever. I think it is totally rude for them just to show up at my door because i always like to be prepared for company. You are not in the wrong on this. That is poor business when they knew you wanted to be called first to begin with. You are not rude at all!

They should call! I have had a few issues with my house so it's needed some repairs. The landlord of the maintenance guy always calls at least an hour before they come here. It's nice so I can make sure my kid isn't running around in just a diaper and I can at least put on a bra!
