OPs original post relates to the questionable actions of her landlord, she did not ask anyone's opinion or advice regarding her financial decisions. Often times people can feel under "attack" and not just take on board what they wish.
In saying that OP appears (from previous posts) to be quite resilient and wouldn't be bothered much by being told that her input to the rental is dumb.
In the example of the property manager ringing to say that the aircon guy was coming in 10 minutes, I can see how that could be though as somewhat "reasonable" seeing as OP has requested that aircon be fitted and is paying for half of it.
Little bit different to a tradesman or someone else coming to the house for a reason that you haven't requested or have no benefit from.
Also in the fact that OP has paid significant money to get mould removed (which the landlord should have done before the moved in), makes me think that the property manager/landlord probably think they can get push the boundaries and get away with a bit.
This was an extra quote after the fact though, so was unnecessary and an inconvenience. They said they'd have 3 people over asap so I made sure they had access (and they gave several hours notice). This random 10 minute notice guy was a fourth.
ETA: we haven't paid for them to remove any mould.
And whether or not what I say gives context, calling my decisions dumb is not okay.

Wish you moved into my rental property OP!
Sorry just a question, if you go halvies in the A/C, who gets to keep it at the end of the lease?
I'm all for doing what you need to, I think some of us are wary as the landlords have proven themselves to be loose cannons.
I didn't say anything about the money, but I was thinking it may not have been the best decision in a new property, especially given what the LL has now done. We have put a bit of money in to this place too - probably $3k in 2 years for retic repairs because DH just goes and does it, and to put a bigger fire in, fixing the pump and other minor repairs - so I do get putting money in to a rental to make what you want more appealing/achievable to the LL. I just personally wouldn't have put that much in with a place I'd been in 3 months. I think that's why people are scratching their heads. It's a lot of $$!!
Eta - given the info in the post above, that's not so bad! Good thinking with that one.
