Call landlady 1 month 20 days ago:
'get the phone company to come fix it if it's our fault we'll reimburse you.'
'uhm but this started the day after your workmen started painting the building.'
'NO NO IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.'
Finally call phone company, schedule appointment.
A WEEK before the appointment, my cellphone rings.
'Hi, I'm here to work on your phone?'
'...You're supposed to be there tomorrow.'
'Oh, well, I was here working on someone else's.'
So the tech determines that NO, there is NO PROBLEM with their phone wires it is the intercom box.
WHO IS IN NEW ZEALAND, SURROUNDED BY CHINESE GOOSEBERRIES AND LONGBEAKED FLIGHTLESS BIRDS.
Landlady gets back.
