Are condo owners wimps? Real condo board complaints EXPOSED.
In an effort to preserve their 300 square feet of paradise, some condo owners can be a bit...eccentric, to say the least. Today, Ric argued that many are wimps, who can't manage even the most basic household duties.
(He also spoke to The Gazette's housing reporter, Allison Lampert, on how Montreal's booming condo market is becoming one that is less advantageous to sellers. You can listen by clicking play to the right.)
Here are some real complaints made in a Montreal condo association Facebook group (some details have been omitted or changed to protect the lazy):
--Why are the colours of windows in phase 8 two colours, brown and grey?
--How can I change the light bulb under my fan?
--Does anyone know how to "seal" a countertop? It is recommended to be done every couple of years on the countertops.
--Can construction start at 6am? They are redoing the sidewalks on Irene and they started really early...
--Where can I buy a dish rack?
--How do I install my air conditioner?!
--Thanks to the person in Phase 3 who hacked my WiFi for the last month and has been stealing my bandwidth, making Videotron charge me an extra $50 in fees. Just so you are aware, your trace is still in my router's logs. Will know who you are soon enough.
--Why do people think that when you put old furniture on the sidewalk it will disappear like magic?
--What cell phone provider works best in phase 5: Bell, Rogers or Telus?
--Can’t someone tow the clown in the white Volkswagen who partially blocked the garage?
--The weeds growing on the front lawn are hideous!
--Thanks again to the person(s) who stole our meat, rice and wine that was in the Chalet refrigerator yesterday ... That was our dinner!
OK, maybe some of the complaints are perfectly valid.
