    Default 'Funny' Storage Story of The Day

    Here's one for you guy's...just now I had a future tenant come in to talk about getting a unit in a couple of weeks. Right after he left and I was about to go over-lock his future until his move-in day I immediately stepped-out off of our sidewalk in front of the office and found a $20 bill on the group. I immediately called him knowing it had to be his as he just left. I am a 100% honest person and keeping anything like this would never be an option for me; I guess I got a little too smug in my pride for my great character, lol thinking he would be so grateful that I was such a good person. Instead he swore up and down that he had dropped another $20 bill totalling $40! He JUST left, it was right out front of the office AND there is ZERO high wind....he even went so far as to make me look in his future lease papers which were on my desk..
    Just when you think you did something nice for somone, lol!

    Well, I think you did an awesome thing, even if he was a jerk about it. Maybe that is an indication of the type of tenant he will be...PITA. I hope not, for your sake.

    Good job, anyway!

    He should consider himself $20 richer because you're an honest person, not $20 poorer because he may have, at one point in time, had $40 total in his pocket.

    Yup; some people are bizarre.....and I do hope it isn't an indication of how he'll be as a tenant...he did already go on and on about 'I hope this unit doesn't leak all over my furniture'...I will go over in-depth w/out any question so there is no doubt when he signs our no liability sheet at lease time/regarding our non-coverage for leaks, etc. Wish me luck!
