Your to lazy

Those troublemakers requesting more crazy apartment notes can thank our anonymous submitter (a GM at a property management firm in Springfield, Missouri) for today’s masterpiece. “One of our resident managers delivered this letter to 115 units at her property, then e-mailed me a copy because she was REALLY proud of it,” our submitter writes. “I got halfway through and realized I had to send it to you.”

IT'S FALL! HERE ARE A FEW UPDATES AND SEVERAL COMPLAINTS!

this no the ghetto

more surprises

Now, for the complaints…

    I suppose if you spend all your time collecting pet feces and returning them to their owners, there is just not enough time left to make real improvements, lol

    Wow. Living in an apartment area, I can truly understand the management’s challenge. I’ve one neighbor that has had an untagged car since they moved here. And any apartment dweller knows the joys of other tenants who treat everything like their own personal dumpster.

    That said… If you are management, before you post anything, make sure it looks good. Strange grammar and oddly placed capitals don’t inspire respect.

    Also, the idea that you have to “grow up” to get out of the ghetto suggests to me that this is, in fact, a ghetto. And she’s tryna get them all out.

    Age or “growing up” has nothing to do with living in the ghetto. Common sense. Sorry but very P&A on this topic. Lived in many complexes where no one gave a damn. I pay rent, therefore I can do whatever I want. Doesnt cut it.

    This is why I’d never want to own rental real estate. Or live in an apartment complex again. Or live anywhere near an apartment complex again. :D

    I love the last part — a nice thing about Christmas and more surprises to come. How lovely, Ghetto Christmas. Your presents will be lying next to the dumpster disguised as garbage. Whee!

    I love these long notes. I like to think that they’re lovingly crafted in an overnight rush of creativity. The fact that it was emailed proudly says it all. Bravo!

    Actually, that wasn’t the major mistake, Jo. They kept leaving the “r” off “YOUR”. I was wondering if the damn key was broken on their keyboard. Also, what the hell are they typing the note on to get random initial capitals? A cell phone? HMOG that note was almost impossible to read.

    I really enjoyed “Mike” reading that riotous submission and deciding the appropriate comment to make was to scold the commenters for …. well, actually I don’t know WHAT he was scolding us for. We think that note is hysterical, ergo we live in heaps of garbage? Quite a leap of logic, no?

    And I have no idea why this is, but even among all the ridiculous typos in this note the thing that made me laugh out loud was right at the end: “The [sic] will be a 1st, 2nd and third place winners.” The random ordinal number style just killed me.

    God this woman is scary, I can see her on her hands and knees in kabuki face mask scrubbing the bathroom floor like Faye Dunaway in “Mommie Dearest”.

    On other hand , she does have a point, although she is kinda racist and crazy. Its not just “the ghetto ” where people live trashy , white folks in trailer parks is just as bad. Dont matter though, you can still have nothing and be clean & use common sense.

    Sounds like this is a timeshare condo type thing & not a perm. residence dwelling. she is the female version of Jack Nicholson in “The Shining” who lives there year round.

    I don’t know about where she lives but in my previous apartment complex if we left furniture in the dumpster we were fined for it.
    Only household trash was allowed in there, furinture and such was collected once a month for bulk pick up.
    She also seems oblivious to the fact that roaches don’t care if your apartment is clean or not. The bastards can live off a peice of cardboard for a month, why would they leave just because you tidied up a bit?
    MANDITORY SHOCK COLLARS FOR ALL STAY AT HOME DOGS! Because god forbid you disturb the s.o.b who’s watching ‘their stories’ at ten in the morning. Also, the idea of this person crouching in the bushes to pick up abandoned poop amuses me for some warped reason. Even if she does return the poo, she still lost that battle.

    every apt i lived in would have to fumigate all the units in a bldg at one time, or the roaches just run from one apt to the other – regardless of how clean you kept it.

    I live near the club/shopping district and suburbanites DO come down here and trash the place. Every weekend and every time some special event is going on – like Nascar or a Ball Game or whatever.

    It makes me really upset sometimes and I’ll actually say to really bad offenders:

    “Hey – we don’t come to *your* neighborhood and wreck the joint, do we? Please don’t throw up on my doorstep…”

    The best part is that it is a nice complex! We never see problems when we visit, apparently it all happens in the middle of the night and magically disappears when we show up. Equally surprising is that no one has called to complain. Had I sent this to another one of our complexes, people would have FLIPPED.

    Lorina~ I spent a good chunk of time living in section 8 housing (dating myself, but WTH) and “ghetto” it wasn’t. Most people were used to having their shit stolen, so kept it indoors. I can’t vouch for the qualityof life INSIDE but outside was fine.
    Now when I got my decent job and moved out to the “nice” apartments… THAT was ghetto. Crap left everywhere, animals and kids running all over. Those people could afford to have a non-working car just sitting around apparently.

    However~ if the manager has so many problems with pets how about not allowing any more pets? I’m betting her turnover is crazy and she will not have to pick up and deliver poop within 6 months. And Really~ how does she know which poop is from Putz?

    I understand there is an impending crisis in the Period supply market–let’s all be careful not to use them up, don’t use a period if you don’t have to so our kids can someday write sentences that end in periods! If you must end a sentence, try an exclamation point instead–we have plenty of those!

    i wish my management had the balls to do a more intelligent version of this.

    my neighbor across the way from me has a small dog that has crapped on my welcome mat repeatedly (it used to be a pretty design; i know have one that reads “feck off” ;) not really. but i should); i scooped it onto theirs with a stick and threatened to sprinkle rat poison on a doggy treat and leave it on my mat. the dog crapping has since stopped. seriously? who lets their dog poop on someone elses mat? i hadnt even met them at that point. now, its war.

    my nextdoor neighbor is loud, which i can sometimes ignore, but they will let trash accumulate for two weeks by their front door; it is a rotting, festering magot daycare and they just dont care. if they have to drive anywhere, they pass the dumpster on the way to their car, so im not sure what the issue is. their cement is stained by their door from the filth. this is supposed to be in a nice part of town, but this place is a dump. i actually dropped my own bag with their collection one time and i doubt they noticed. i put a note threatening to report them to management, lets see if it helps, lol.

    k, now that ive complaigned, this note tickles me, for many reasons already stated.

    I used to live in a run-down bu still fabulous 1950′s character building. There were 6 units and we were all more or less pretty good neighbours to each other. Then, someone moved out and the property manager made the choice to rent to meth users. My neighbours started to move out, and friends of the meth users started moving in. It was awful. I had to call the cops on more than one occasion. My neighbours yelled things like, “The next time you see me, I’m going to be fucking sober!” and “I said I was fuckin’ sorry!” (This is my favourite apology ever.)

    Within 6 months, the meth users and their friends infiltrated the building and we all moved out.
    It all could have been avoided if the property manager had taken the time to find decent people to rent to, and not just anybody.

    A little rearranging of the subject matter would have worked wonders, such as:

    “And there are just may be more surprises That everyone will enjoy. I can always return what your pet leave behind to you. It will be charged to you!”

    “There will also be a Christmas coloring contest Different age groups. They are there for you to enjoy Not to throw trash, cans, cigarette butts, etc. the Dumpster is not that far away.”

    OMG!!! This is too funny! In a way, I can agree with her. A lot of people in my apartment complex don’t realize that other people live there, and that not everyone wants to hear their nasty kids running around in the halls.
    I think she’s a bit too harsh on the pets though. I’d much rather hear dogs barking than kids screming and crying any day!

    Has anyone else had the thought that maybe the author of this note needs a shock collar? I am incensed that anyone would consider suggesting that as a solution to a barking dog. How bad are the complaints, for JC’s sake??
    This note also reminds me of several that have popped up at my current job, where no one is encouraged to talk to the person who is doing something wrong. Everyone gets harangued because of one idiot who flushes paper towels down the toilet. Maybe it should be suggested that complaints about specific things go to those specific tenants who are breaking those specific rules.

    #65- Thank you, Zsa.

    #61- Lorina: I looked into my PAN crystal ball and saw that someone exactly like you would write to say that we’re all a bunch of whiny, entitled snobs who’ve never had a day of financial strain in our lives; that we’re all commenting on PAN via our little softly-lit home offices while the butler is downstairs detailing the Bentley in preparation for our daily shopping spree on Rodeo Drive.

    Surprise! You’re dead wrong.

    I’ll bet you the shirt off of my back (bought for $12.00 at Marshall’s– the first new article of clothing I’ve purchased in a year) that every single PANdemic who contributed a comment on the above apartment manager’s disturbing note has:

    1. Eaten Ramen for days at a stretch.

    2. Had simultaneous full- and part-time jobs to supplement their income.

    3. Wondered how the hell they’re gonna pay for gas for the upcoming week.

    4. Has shopped at Wal-Mart, even though they suck, simply because their prices are cheaper.

    5. Has worn layers and layers of clothing around the house in the Winter because they can’t afford to pay the heating bill.

    Don’t think we’re raking this manager person over the coals because we think we’re above her or anyone else that lives in her vermin-infested complex. We are raking her over the coals because she wrote a PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE NOTE. Hence, the name of the site: PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE NOTES.

    Just a quick explanation about how we work around here. If you think we’re a bunch of snobs, then go to another website and comment there– or better yet, join us and become a fellow PANdemic.

    I once lived in such a shitty apartment that we couldn’t use the bathroom because of the mold that kept growing in and on the wall. By the end of our stay there, to use the bathroom, we’d hold our breath and run in and out as fast as we could. Yet, the manager was a complete bitch and wouldn’t let us out of our lease early unless we took her to court, so we just asked for an extended lease on another unit. So I’m familiar with both good and bad managers… this one sounds nucking futz.

    ok, I read up further back… that was actually pretty stupid considering I have damn good punctuation and spelling, not to mention the fact that I have no children. But whatever.

    #135: Wade, I reckon if I knew what “phail” was it might be a clue as to whether you’re serious. If there’s any doubt, yes, I noticed. Something about the lack of angle or hollowness gave it away!

    My favorite is “this is not a day care.”

    No. It’s where people LIVE. So like, yeah, their kids are going to be around doing kid things. Deal with it.

    Don’t complain about roaches if your place isn’t clean, but if they get too loud you’ll have to get shock collars for them. And then bring ‘em to meet me. What the hell, they can even enter the coloring contest. It IS Christmas, after all – trash-dumped, cigarette-butt covered Christmas in the ghetto. God Bless Us Every One.

    Wow. If you are going to send out a letter like this to however many people, shouldn’t you at least take the time to punctuate? I’m not looking for perfect grammar (though decent grammar is always a plus) and Lord knows I can not spell so who would I be to criticize that, but for the love of god, it’s called a “period”. Use it more than once a month.

    OMG how on earth did this woman manage to became a resident manager? The lack of punctuation and the random capitalization are just the beginning of the horribleness of this letter. Eeek, it makes my head hurt just looking at it!

    I had to re-read each paragraph twice just to be sure this notice wasn’t referring to my current apartment complex. It’s not.. at least I don’t think.. but it definitely could be.

    maybe someone else already mentioned this but really…

    Al Gore knows you printed 115 copies of a THREE-PAGE COMPLAINT.
