Cat women, women, and condo associations
« on: December 21, 2009, 10:37:37 AM »
Oh you make me so mad!!!!  :ranting: :cursing: :fistintheair:

So last Wed or Thurs, some cat woman from the 3rd floor took a LARGE bag of cat litter to the dumpster, but managed to leave a clump of cat s**t and litter on every step down, across the courtyard and to the dumpster. I fired the first salvo, pretty reasonable request that whomever is responsible ought go clean it up.

Then we get bombarded by the deniers, one of which, obviously, is feigning outrage. Reasonable Bab? Forgetaboutit. :cursing: Now I'm on a witch hunt.

I start the process of elimination, sending email and making phone calls for two days to sniff out the scoundrel. It turns out only two women on the 3rd floor have cats; someone else on the 3rd floor even said the trail appears (not definitive evidence) to have started at a particular unit. Of course, for whatever reason, no one on the 3rd floor wants to confront one another. But that won't stop them from b**ching about how disgusting it is. Not so interestingly or surprisingly, all four (yep, 4) units on the 3rd floor are occupied by women.

At this point, you're probably wondering, "Bab, why did you get involved?" Some men here might already have figured it out.

So 3 days pass; 3 days of me prodding the women upstairs, 3 days of them denying, and 3 days of everyone looking at and tip-toeing around the mess. If you think one of the women would volunteer to do the clean up, your sadly mistaken. I, alone, got out a shovel and a broom from the basement, and dragged a hose four flights up the stairs in the cold and sleet, and proceeded down, down the 3 flights of stairs, across the courtyard, and all the way to the dumpster. 2 hours.

When I finished, I started hammering :hammer: on the women for not even volunteering to help. 3 days and not one of them flinched! One owner said her neighbor was "hurt" by the accusations. I later heard from the woman whose feelings got hurt. She said something lame about she knows that I don't believe her but she's not going to defend herself any more.   ..-)

I'm not a cat fan OR an irresponsible cat owner fan.  We deal with our own brand of kitty nuisances around here.  I'm not sure I would have given this as much time or intensity as you did, but certainly would have cleaned it up eventually (just like you did) and then posted a strongly worded letter on the stairwell where the defilement occurred.   :))  It IS a defilement too.  Kitty poo/litter is *gag* nasty!

I would have shoveled it all up and then dumped 25% of it at the bottom of each door on the 3rd floor.  That would have been fun to see who starts cleaning then!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Hi Christina!

December 21...and this is the first comment! You really had to do some digging to unearth this nugget.

{taking a bow}  Yep, it's me!  Actually, I don't think I dug too far, Babs.  It's slim pickins in GD.  Let's work on that until I get up to snuff on my tennis conversation skills.  :)~

That's the whole problem you present! While I have absolutely zero (0) respect for your husband, I can't say the same about you.

You're going to mess everything up!

Zero respect eh?  Probably one of the reasons you keep getting bageled when we play.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

EASY! I'll take Christina the Hun's paddle to your ace. I don't even need to check with your pastor.

They're back!

So I go out back last night for the first time since returning and find small, planter box stones all over the wooden deck for someone else to clean up.

So I fire off an email: what's up with the rocks? Then go on my rant and finish strong, with a jab at Judy, the knucklehead who said the cat s**t was too foul for her to clean up.

I says, "The good news is, there is not cat fecal matter involved this time, so clean up will not pose a health hazard."

Then the guy next to me comes out and, of course, we start the cleanup because if those things get trampled on, they can chew up the wood deck. While we're out there, we notice that the remains of a pot are on the concrete below our level. We look up, and one of the women has a row of unsecured pots set on top of the railing. It's pretty clear now what happened. The wind came along and picked one off and deposited it on the ground 2 floors below leaving a trail of debris on my floor on its way down.

So after explaining what likely happened, I says, "Kind of crazy to put unsecured pots on the railing. That's not an opinion."

Now I wait and see who flinches.  ;-()

One of the usual deniers denied it, but took down her pots and cleaned up the mess.   ..-)

Ahhhh, the joys of multi-unit dwelling! :rofl_2:

You've done fairly well to remain civil to the alleged offenders.
Perhaps it's time for some consequences to be associated with these offences (other than your anger).

Once you've figured out who the perpetrator is perhaps a more concrete consequence (other than an email tirade) is in order.

They always deny. The woman who cleaned it up--the one with the row of pots on the rail--said it was likely the pot of the woman who lived above her.

Same as it ever was...  ..-)

You could write a book about urban living what wid all the stories you tell.
Between parking your car/truck and cleanin' up kitty poop you'd have a best-seller in by the end of the year! :rofl_2:
