The Long, Hot, Cramped Summer

Earlier this afternoon, Kris told me that it’s National Dry Martini Day. I could really use one.

If it pleases the blogosphere, the urban bohemian would like to submit the following images into evidence as Exhibits A and B…

5-23 letter from condo board
Exhibit A: May 23rd letter from the Condo management company advising that due to the rodent problem in the basement, we’d need to clean out our areas in the storage room and keep those things in our apartments for a short time.

6-19 letter from condo board
Exhibit B: June 19th letter from the Condo management company advising that the Board of Directors is going to close the storage room until further notice.

[PDF here. I’m making CS3 earn its keep on the first day out.]

So right now, I’ve got an apartment full of stuff. I’ll take a picture later because it really looks like a crazy person lives here now. I was able to get a handle on the clutter and mess a little while ago, but now I feel like I’m right back to where I was and I don’t have the back-up of a storage area to keep stuff. FUN.

I’m really gonna welcome that drink on Thursday night. I should probably find my way to one tonight, too.

    I wonder if these folks have considered that the rodents just might have taken up residency in the boxes that were located in the storage units and now they’ve all be relocated to the people’s apartments. EWWWWWW.

      That was my first thought; they’re solving the rodent problem in the basement by moving the rats into people’s apartments. Crafty!

    The jury would like to applaud The Board’s gratuitous usage of the word ‘horrendous.’ The Board’s usage of capital letters is, however, significantly less impressive…

      And even less impressive than that was their lack of copy editing.

      After extensive discussion, the board as concluded….

      (Emphasis mine.)

    All the more reason why I refuse to have more stuff than can fit into my apartment (though I have the option of getting storage in another part of my building at no additional cost).

    I say toss the stuff from the previous tenants, but as to the owner’s stuff, you’re probably stuck. Did you use the bike storage or was it always in your unit?

  4. Hmmm…any way you can rent an off-site storage unit, then bill it back to the condo board? Seems only fair to me.

    I second Brian Gluckman’s suggestion. Also, a dry martini is in order.
