I've been in the pool all of 6 times this year.
Because when it isn't full of families and screaming kids, it's locked for 'invisible maintenance' (IE: Supposedly they're Doing Something to it, but there's no one there, and it stays Mysteriously Locked until 'family time' rolls around in the afternoon).
I'm at the point of wanting to strangle everyone in the pool (why aren't you using the pool in the back where your apartments are located, folks? You know, the bigger one that's meant for the kids and families? The one right next to your two, three and four bedroom apartments...unlike the single and two room ones up front where I am and most of the residents are single adults and couples?), and taking a bat to the office management.
Yes, I'm *that* frustrated. For the past three weeks, whenever the pool has been clear of said kids, and I've gotten dressed to swim and walked over, the pool has been locked up. Every Single Time.
I'm just hoping once school starts, I'll have a better chance at it before it gets too cold to swim.
And yes, I realize I sound like a selfish, spoiled, bratty little bitch, but when last year I didn't have this problem, and that pool is the only free and non-heat stroke inducing exercise I can do right now, and I've been dealing with this for two months...I'm getting just a LITTLE peeved.
