    He is probably related to the tenant of ours who slept through the glazier's hammering on the door (to mend the window which the tenant had broken)not just once, but three times on three consecutive days.

    When challenged, he (T) protested that he had three mates with 21st birthdays over that 3 day period to whose parties he had been obliged to attend, so how was that his fault?

      Some of our buildings have formal reception areas varying from glass marble and steel to cosy leather chaired affairs, and a long time ago I co-opted televisions in these areas for information on CD, dvd and later, with computers, with direct access.

      A client who has substantial student holdings where they provide the sky and broadband, to save arguments, is installing cheap flat screens in entrance halls or kitchens to post notices over the broadband.

      No more I wasn't given notice. He did ask the IT people to put in one with built in web cams so that he had proof of them getting the notice by their bleary eyed faces starting at the screen

        A hall full of students staring at a webcam? Sounds like a scene from Zombie Apocalypse .

          Oh I wasn't going to push that one... other than the waste of my time I didn't end up out of pocket, and these are actually otherwise excellent, long-term tenants who pay up, look after the property and (until now) give me no hassle, so I didn't want to rock the boat!

            had a very similar situation with one of our tenants who had gone for a w/end away
            they rang in a tizzy saying the locks were broken and their kids were outside the house worried
            immediately went down (this was approx half9pm just before xmas)to find no stray kids and the door locked on the mortice
            no damage no issue, nothing
            tried ringing tenant and kids - no reponse apart from a text saying they'd be back in a minute
            after 30 i left and left the mortice on

            What should we call the Tenant Darwin awards?!
            The Lloyd-Georges?

                  I'd call them The shelter Awards, the Rogues or the Robins.

                  Shelter with no capital S is a generic word so they probably can't sue.

                    I love the spitting contest from floor 11.

                    Like the Tower of Pisa, which landed first - the spittle or the bloke who ran too fast to stay on the balcony?

                      But there are times when an occupier "gives up".. like today.

                      A quick dash to send the property manager away and spare her the experience.
