Who lives here?
This is our garage. No one lives in our garage.
BUT according to the City of Los Angeles, this is a separate unit in our multi-unit house so not only do we pay a separate electricity bill (that's ok) but we pay for separate GARBAGE AND RECYCLING PICK UP. What?
Obviously, we shouldn't have to pay the $31/month to have the GARAGE'S garbage picked up...but the city needs to make sure it's not a residence so in three weeks they will send a guy to take pictures as proof, then we have to chase them down to change our account, THEN they will stop charging us and apparently reimburse the payments we've made. Let's hope.
The surprises never end!
