Getting called by a renter to plunge a toilet

The renter had a plunger too

I get free rent because I live in my grandmother’s rental house. I do deserve to have free rent because I am now the on site fix it guy. My grandmother refuses to spend any money and won’t hire any repairs out. So anytime a toilet breaks, a sink leaks or a stove won’t work, my grandmother thinks she needs to fix it. I have taken all those duties upon myself and it is awful. The renters all live in the same building as me. So they are constantly knocking on my door with different repairs. I get to install new tile in a bathroom one day and then the next day mount a new shower head. I don’t mind helping out older women or new female renters. When a guy my age can’t figure out how to get his stove to turn on, I get a little angry. The most recent call I got really irritated me though. I had a renter knock on my door in the middle of the night complaining that there was something wrong with their toilet. I got out of bed and was anticipating a major toilet repair. I figured there was leaking water, the toilet falling to the side or maybe a septic tank concern. Nope, the actual issue was that the toilet was clogged. The renter had a plunger too. So I got woken up to plunge the renter’s toilet. I only did it because I thought that there might have been a major clog or drainage issue. Of course, it was not that at all.
