“Seems like a major flaw in the system that when someone moves the new tenant is just screwed”

“Dear PoPville,

Having a horrible experience with the DC parking portal! The previous occupant of my apartment unit didn’t update their address, so I’m unable to get a visitor permit. Two of their operators told me I had to (somehow?) get in touch with this person to get them to change/delete.

Now, a third operator asked me to upload my lease to my portal account so they can verify. Seems like a major flaw in the system that when someone moves the new tenant is just screwed and has to jump through hoops.

Update Ok; finally got them to change after I uploaded my lease and was on hold for 30 minutes. I’m now, finally able to get the permit. But insane that I had to jump through so many hoops.”

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
