The ceiling light in my kitchen burnt out today. I have a shitload of regular bulbs so I went up to change it out but it's some weird kind of bulb I've never seen before in my life and I can't find one online anywhere, just the fixture. Now I have to get my landlord up here to replace it. I actually had a little panicky moment when I realized this because my faucet is leaking as well and I accidentally burnt my counter with an insanely hot glass pan about a year ago. Why haven't I brought either of these issues up to him? Because he's a cop. He's not a dick or anything, he's actually a really nice dude and I'm not violating my lease in any way but I don't want a cop in my apartment for hours fixing shit so I've been putting off mentioning these things to him. I know I have to say something but this shit is giving me anxiety. God fucking dammit.

Unless the entire place smells like weed or is wallpapered in pedo images I'd say you're perfectly fine.

That said I don't like calling the landlord to fix shit either, in my case its because I feel like I need to pick up all the crap lying around and either organize it or shove it into storage.

Exactly! I feel like I have to deep clean my house just because he's coming by. Dusting the tops of doorways and shit. So god damn stressful.

Apartment maintenance guy here, trust me, me/ my coworkers/ city inspectors couldn't care less about how cluttered your place is, we see so many apartments every day it's not even a thought that crosses our minds. Working in a college town means I've seen it all; so long as you have nothing horribly filthy or destroyed you have nothing to worry about.

I'm guessing your old bulb is a candle base bulb (has a threaded base like a regular 60w bulb, but smaller in diameter with a similar or lower wattage), or is a compact flourescent/ CFL (different wattage bulbs have varying pin connector arragements/ form factors)? Can't be sure without more info. Landlord may help you with this, or may not, since it's not exterior/ located in a common area of the building.

Depends on the landlord but he may be understanding about the countertop, maybe not. For the worst case scenario I'd expect the price of a new countertop to come out of your deposit; best case scenario he chalks it up to regular wear and tear, decides not to charge you for it, and that's the last you hear of it.

A leaking faucet is something any landlord will want to know about ASAP if they're the ones paying the water bill. To repair a leak can take as little as 10 minutes; if the faucet needs replaced, it may be an hour.

He will be aware of these issues by the time your lease expires, so being forthcoming now is a very good idea; landlords don't like it when tenants let maintenance related issues build up so the sooner they are disclosed the better. He will appreciate it and should have no problem addressing the issues and working around you to get them corrected. Just hide all of your illegal shit before he arrives
