It appears that three soda cans equals a health code violation

Here's one with a semi-long explanation of a situation I am experiencing at present.



Let's say you live an apartment/flat/etc and about two months ago you experienced flooding in your kitchen sink because a sewer line being backup. You call the maintenance crew and over the course of two days fix the prob. That evening when you go outside you find a note taped to your door saying there is an excessive amount of trash and to clean up or else they'd start eviction process. Ok ok it's worded a tad nicer than that, but that was the general point. The thing is you don't believe that statement to be true. All the trash you have is collected and in trash bags (two), tied up, etc and out of the way. And because of the bad rain storms you haven't made a trip to the dumpster. It's not like trash was thrown everywhere with flies hovering, the apartment didn't smell. At most you had out a few empty soda cans and junk mail.

Fast forward to today, two months later. You receive another notice claiming the same thing. First off no maintenance crew or staff as entered your apartment since the flooding issue. Unless they did without prior permission/notice (which I do believe is against policy). It's likely they saw into the apartment through some lose blinds on the sliding glass window, and then all they could see is again a few soda cans, pringles containers (with lids on) and the table that looks a disaster but of paper work, etc and not of trash. You call the office and immediately say you disagree with the notice which causes the office staff person whom you are with speaking to get bitching. You are informed that they'll send out another manager to inspect the apartment to see if it's a health violation. Also the fact you lied and said right now wasn't a good time and being unsure about a time tomorrow made the person even more bitchy.

How annoyed would this entire sitution make you? 1 not annoyed in the least - 10 so annoyed you are spitting fire.

When cleaning/tidying up before the visit you ....

Clean everything to an inch of it's life even organize book shelfs etc.

Clean up but don't go over board because you figure they can't tell you where you can do keep objects you own

Just throw out the little bit of trash and all else stays
4(6.9%)
You do nothing. Everything stays because you really feel as if it's not an issue.

Something else.

Your bedroom is a mess of dirty clothes (and dirty clothes only) but if a person just popped their head in they could make assumptions of it being more. To handle this you'd...

Keep the door shut and refuse to open it because your cat is in there and doesn't deal well with strangers. (which is a lie, he loves everyone)

Keep in closed but push the dirty clothes out of eye view if they instant on looking in.

Clean it just as much as the rest of the apartment.
