    Default Itís time for some humor!

    What were the two funniest things youíve seen or had happen in the storage business? They donít have to be in any special order.

    Yesterday I heard a group of kids outside raising cane, four walking and two on bikes. The four older kids were talking the younger to go up to our gate for something. As I watched on the video monitor one of the boys went up to the keypad and started pressing buttons. We have a panic switch in the office that sets off all the sirens. I tripped it! They were tripping over each other trying to get out of here.

    A couple winters ago we decorated the exterior of the office with flashing rope lights around the eves and dummy doors. It had snowed a couple days earlier and we had about six to eight inches on the ground. Well about 3 am there was a popping and banging noise coming from the exterior of the building. I quickly got dressed and proceeded to go check thing out. As I rounded the corner of the building there was a guy about five feet away (dresses in black) jerking and tugging on a string of lights. I yelled something _@#$%_ and the guy fell over backwards and took off. He must of lost his glasses in the snow because as he ran away he never saw the cable that was stretched across the pathway between our property and the neighbor (about 2-1/2 feet off the ground). He hit it full speed, went flat on his face. Thatís not all. As he was getting up and trying to run (on all fours) and dresses in all black how is he going to hide, I started laughing. He headed out across the street to get away I guess. Well with the snow and about 20000 cars a day that snow was a sheet of ice. About in the middle of the road he looked kind of like a ballet dancer slipping and sliding. What a great crash. I wish we would have had a video cam for that side of our building. By the way, I still have the knife he dropped with a name on Leon.

    This is actually pretty sad, but for some reason I still laugh at it...


    Had a tenant come in and pay her bill; and brought all 4 kids in the office with her. One had to go potty. So he goes to our restroom. They pay the rent, make small talk, I go down to take the over lock off and come back to my collection calls. 20 mins later the boy comes out of the bathroom crying. Im like " oh my gosh"! I totally forgot about him and so did his older sister. So we drive him down to his family and of course they acted like they didnt even know he was gone...

    We come back to the office and I go to clean the bathroom. The little boy wasnt crying cause they left him, he was crying because he pooped so big it wouldnt flush. I swear this thing had to be the size of a football and this kid was no more than 6 years. It had to of cause some massive pain coming out! I felt so sorry for the kid but at the same time i cant not think about the story without laughing
    Youve got to learn to dance before you learn to walk. Ive come to a conclusion, drinking a beer after work leads to a nasty headache in the morning

    The funniest thing I have seen is watching a tenant who forgot his code try to squeeze his body through the gate and he got stuck. I am watching from the office monitors. After about 10 minutes of laughter and placing bets with my husband, and watching him manuevering and twisitng trying to get in or out I finally opened the door and asked if he needed any help? He said call 911! So I did, and he was fined for damaging our gate.He didnt argue, just paid it and left. Moved out the next day.

    On the funny not so funny side ...

    We had a swing arm gate that is about 150' straight ahead. As it was coming down the driver of the 5 ton (still 125' away) hit warp speed to try and sneak under it. This ensured he hit it full on at maximum accelleration thus obliterating that wooden gate arm - it didn't have a chance. Where or where is that ever a good idea!?!

    Funniest things...hmm... I've had a lot of funny things happen. How about a cute thing?

    One of my tenant's 4-year old was very upset one day to find that "Ms. Laura" isn't at the facility every day!! (I get 2 days off). The next time he came by the property with his Mom, he told me how he was upset about it and how I should work every-time he comes by because sometimes I give his FREE golf cart rides! He was so adorable about it.

    (If it is slow enough, and Mom's juggling kids and unloading boxes, I'll offer to take the kids 1-2 laps around the building. The kids love it, and Mom likes the uninterrupted move-time).

    Is there a method to my madness, or a madness to my method?
