I grew up in affluent Fairfield County, CT. We were not one of the very wealthy families in the IBM town, but we certainly never lacked for anything. My first experience of LACK wasn't until after I'd moved out of my family's home at a pretty early age. There were times in my life (I'm … Continue reading Pooooooor
Fourth of July. My husband and I thought we'd go out for dinner with two other couples we're close friends with. It's my non-treatment week so I feel pretty good. We picked a place and a time and to our surprise, the restaurant was closed when we got there! So we tried a second, and … Continue reading Criminal Masterminds – Trailer Park style
"They're lyin', your honor, my home is CLEAN!" Someone actually said that in eviction court. Under oath. https://youtu.be/3lr7D5lGR5k https://youtu.be/vJnIwf9FZNM https://youtu.be/mR1Jnl3BPJo The home was beautiful when they moved in. I will never understand how someone can choose to live like that. I'm amazed the HVAC worked at all with all the garbage stuffed down into the … Continue reading “My Home is CLEAN!”
Even after six years there are times when I look around and ask, "Are you kidding me?" I suppose boredom would be worse. I wouldn't know. I've got no experience with boredom. When you live in a single-wide mobile home space becomes really important. Use it wisely because it's limited. When you can gain some … Continue reading Sticky Fingers versus Secret Squirrels
Why? I ask myself that single word question over and over, every day. Why? Why would someone do that? The world just never ceases to amaze me. In the field of Property Management no single object inspires the question of why more than the humble toilet bowl. The first time I cleaned an empty mobile … Continue reading Mystery of the Serial Sh*tter
A picture is worth how many words? Lots. We got one of the rental properties back today. After poking our heads inside we called the former tenant and asked when he was coming to get the rest of his stuff. He replied that he'd gotten everything that he was taking. Yeah. Go ahead and watch … Continue reading Monday Morning Maggot Meeting
So, I don't know if you've heard but there's this thing going on right now called Covid19. It started out much like the first Friday the 13th movie - just a flash in the pan, a low-budget nothing. Sheltering in Place was supposed to be a two week long deal while they either got a … Continue reading Covid and Liabetes
Even I shrieked in terror. Seriously. Someone was showering with these creatures. My husband questioned what sort of foul adhesive was holding those creatures to the shower wall. Sincerely, isn't getting clean the point of taking a shower? How do you accomplish that in this? Are you going to complain about the landlord on social media when you don't get your security deposit back? … Continue reading Attack of the Hair Creatures!
Sometimes I post our available homes on Facebook groups, like, "Homes for Rent/Sale in Whatever County". Sometimes. I would probably do it more often except that nearly every time I post, some random former tenant will start tearing up the thread, accusing the company of having evicted them for absolutely no reason. For no reason. … Continue reading You May have been Evicted Because….
The next time you rent a home, I'd just like you to do something. It'll take just a few minutes, I promise. Walk into the empty home. Take out your camera or phone and take some pictures of the empty home. Smell the empty home. Does it smell clean and fresh? Take off your shoes … Continue reading It Ain’t Winnie the Pooh!
