Landlord changed move in date

This might sound minor, but I'm irritated. I rented a cute house starting Oct 15 and I put down a $1500 deposit over a month ago, which includes one months rent and pet deposit. The lease I signed has a start date of October 15th. The lady that is currently living there called me and said she couldn't move out until the 15th and I told her that my lease started on the 15th and that I had furniture being delivered that day. She said that wouldn't be convenient for her. So, I called my landlady and when she eventually called me back she said they had to give their tenant time to move out. I could move in the next day, the 16th and she told me to reschedule my movers.
I know the whole thing is petty because its just a day. The soon -to-be-former tenant has had more than 30 days notice to move, which SHE GAVE. I have waited over 30 days for this place, and both me and the fomer tenant where there when my move in date, the 15th was agreed upon.
Now I have to reschedule movers, reschedule friends. And I guess I feel like they are giving more consideration to the person moving out than me, the person who willl pay them rent in the future.
Help me feel better about this whole thing, because it's a really irritating way to start out a new agreement.
If I'm being petty, please let me have it. I need to find a different perspective.
