I'm shaken and shocked from a conversation with my landlord intercepting me on the dozenth time he's seen me come and go with bike from apartment. This peculiar conversation started innocently but soon he casually informed me that bikes aren't allowed in the building. Calmly offered compromise suggestions such as improving storage security or making an exception only escalated his anger. Within a minute seemingly seething with restrained rage he snarled "You are in violation of building rules, no bikes in apartments, and this is your verbal warning. Bring it in again and I'll give you a ten day notice."
New twist found taped to my bike locked briefly inside fence (as I've been doing for short periods for years blocking nothing).
"NOTICE FROM THE MANAGEMENT OF 5433 NORTH KENMORE AVE.
PLEASE DO NOT LOCK YOUR BIKE TO THE FENCE OR ANY OTHER LOCATION ON THIS PROPERTY.
IF YOUR BIKE IS NOT REMOVED IMMEDIATELY IT WILL BE RELOCATEDED AT YOUR EXPENSE.
IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT IN THE BUILDING -ASK THE MANAGER FOR A KEY TO THE BIKE ROOM.
IF YOU ARE VISITING YOU MUST FIND ANOTHER PLACE TO LOCK UP YOUR BIKE OFF PROPERTY.
THIS WILL BE YOUR ONLY NOTICE.
The smartass in me must point out: "RELOCATEDED"
At this point, I halfway pity the envious creepy asshole landlord. He can't be happy, with such obvious raging neurosis, and penchant for control and confrontation (always wears fake cop clothes).
Does the landlord live in the building?
I think he's just having a little attack of low blood sugar.
A pizza or 10 will fix him right up :-)
Andrew, if you haven't moved out by April, it sounds like you should host the WNBR at your apartment.
