I feel so tired. Disappointment is draining my energy. Last week I turned in my white laundry to get cleaned and all my clothes came up missing. Today I went to Clothing Distribution to get my clothing and the laundry lady gave me the runaround. She told me to file a grievance against my building officer. At the end of the day, I still have no socks or towels. My grievance will take from two weeks to twelve months to be heard.
