We had a showing today. Hurrah!
Sigh. Apparently someone left lots and lots of expensive hockey equipment somewhere it could be stolen (they referred to the storage area, but I know our storage lockers and they're just not big enough to hold everything they described, so I'm inclined to think they left it lying around, quite frankly), and, well, it got stolen. They have chosen to handle this by absolutely plastering the building with signs about their stolen items, and how they can't believe someone who lives in this building would do such a thing.
Answer me this: would YOU be inclined to buy in this building?
Stephen was going to go around taking the signs down, but we got behind on cleaning and ran out of time. It would've taken forever, anyway.
I'm sorry this douchebag's stuff got stolen, I really am. But? In addition to my doubts about how well-secured these items were, there are better ways to publicize your losses anyway. Plus, if I want to be one of Those Kind of Condo Owners, you're not allowed to post signs in the building without approval from the board, which he did not have.
It's not as bad as the time the dogwalker got trapped in the elevator, but it's a close second. Right behind this is, of course, the hurricane we had this weekend, preventing anyone from coming to our open house.
It reminds me of that Simpsons episode when Homer has to go back to work at the nuclear plant because Maggie comes along. You know, when Burns hangs the sign in front of his desk? "Always remember: You're here forever."
