between a rock and a COLD place.

"turn your oven up to 500 degrees, open the door and heat the house for the evening." yes, our landlord actually offered THAT helpful suggestion when we called last night to tell her our furnace was on the fritz.

john and i had different reactions to this dialogue. i immediately pointed my internet browser to westlaw and began researching tenants' rights under iowa law, while john paced around, offering some choice words about our landlord and her whole damn family, to no one in particular.

while she may not have solved our immediate problem, at least dear landlord did offer new options for facilitating carbon monoxide poisonining, burning down our rental house and creating a new plotline for a trailer park boys episode.
