    The Dominica Blacklist

    Did your cleaning person steal from you? Were you grossly overcharged for a service? Did you send your clothes to the laundromat only to have a piece or two of your nicest garments stolen? Have a landlord who charges you outrageous prices yet refuses to fix anything?

    Make your fellow Ross students aware of who they can trust and who they cannot.

    This should be a sticky.

    I'll start off with Rosie's restaurant on Lizard trail. A few days ago I went to eat there and had a meal clearly priced from the menu at $20. After eating the lady there lets me know that the meal is $30 because she supposedly gave me more food, even though I didn't ask for it. I paid because I saw a few locals looking at me angrily. It appears that there is a reason that only locals eat at Rosies'. I spoke to another student who ate there two weeks prior, and apparently the EXACT SAME THING happened to him.

    Let this be a warning to any Ross students.

    I would suggest that anyone thinking of living at the Jenner Amour Beach house really think about. The person in charge there is the laziest person i have ever in my life seen. Not to mention if you want to study at home, they will be sitting outside yelling at each other every day. Also, the rent is insane even though the place is a very run down. You can ask them to fix things in the place and she will be so nice and say that she is on top of things. In all fairness i guess it can take more than two semester to install a screen door or spray for bugs, or fix lights. Any way i suggest that no one every live there. Also electricity is outrageous there even though i am home only to sleep. Also just to let you know the person who runs this place also runs flamboyant and frambillia.

    hm i've actually had a good experience at new avies, minus the internet situation. though at least for me, the internet has gotten better recently. every time i've had an issue with my apt, it gets resolved immediately, with the landlord/lady/management person emailing or calling me to make sure everything is alright. my cleaning lady is awesome too...she leaves me greetings, notes, and sometimes even fruits! as far as the water goes, mine actually gets pretty hot with the water heater on...so you might need to get yours checked out. also, the water is brown everywhere after it rains. at least we have water. many apts get no water at all during/after heavy rain.

    i've noticed that people either love or hate avies. the only thing i'd really complain about is the internet situation, which seems like they're trying to resolve, though i don't know how successful that will be yet.

    Heh, you have too much faith in them. They know what the problem is (connection being split a hundred ways). They know how to resolve it. They just don't want to.

    I agree, I have talked to the owners several times, and they told us there are two internet connections between 15 people. They charge us over 50 a month, 30 people, for two DSL lines? Something tells me that the two lines do not cost 1500 EC a month...They are just doing that to make more money off of us..

    any way to get your own dsl line without going through the landlord? split it with maybe 4 others near you (private wireless or something) and would be lot faster

    Off the Avies topic, definitely on the blacklist is the Old Skool transport. Do not take this transport no matter how desperate you are. The driver is a total jerk, very anti American and a mysogynist. Beware! He will even stop in the middle of the street to yell profanities at you.

    *Subway

    Apartments-
    *Avies
    *Jenner Amour Beach house

    Same here. I've lived in new Avie's for 3 semesters and I still think it is the best apartment around campus. My AC was broken and they fixed it the next day no questions asked. Also, they spray insecticide outside of the apartment regularly and I have no bug problem at all. I can even leave a bag of sugar out overnight and not worry about ants.

    The blacklist is a good idea but that rough draft is too general. There are only so many restaurants and apartments around campus. Pretty soon you'll list all of them.
