Okay, I've floated between fits of rage and bouts of hysterical crying over today's events.
I know I've said this before, but if you're considering opening your own brick and mortar shop, please, please, please do not do so if the building is in the process of being sold. I met my (almost) new landlord today and I've never met a bigger asshole in my life. I won't get into the insane details here, but I'm now considering getting out of my lease for the space in Troy and starting all over again from scratch. Half of me wants to cut and run. The other half wants to stick with it and fight this guy 'till the end. If I choose option two, though, it might mean three years of total hell dealing with this man. It pains me to even call him a man. He's a prick.
Does anyone here know the repercussions of stepping out of a lease? It was signed on Monday but no money has been exchanged yet. No work has been done in the space so it's not like they can hold that over my head. There's nothing in the lease stating anything about backing out. Can anyone help me? I'm about to totally lose it here.
Sexist pigs will be the end of the world, mark my words.
