blows the old gate shut

Blush! I'm embarrassed to admit it, but this happens with our front fence gate. I've been trying for years to get our landlord to pay to have the entire fence and gate painted (it's chain link, and will need to be scraped, too, before painting). Although he's quite wonderful about repairs and upkeep about everything else around the building, he's resistant to this for some reason I cannot fathom. Then there's also trying to get my apartment building mates to close the dang gate when they leave or enter. Sigh. I got home just in time with my loaded shopping cart a couple days ago to see the gate slam shut in the wind and shower the walk with rust flakes. Less to scrape, I guess, once I talk the landlord into doing something about it all. LOL!
‘til next time, keep dreaming,
