  • Nowhere else to go

    While checking my voicemails this morning, I got a call from a former customer begging me to let him rent a storage unit, as he has no where else to go.He has been evicted from his home and is living in a nasty old RV with his wife and 2 children. I evicted him when he rented with us because of excessive loitering,. His family was using our restroom to bathe and shave, and their RV was parked in our parking lot several days in a row and overnight.They would leave garbage all over the place and you could hear them fighting. Not to mention his language- I'm no prude, but this guy could make a trucker blush- he would LOUDLY drop the F bomb every other word, right in front of other customers.This guy was unstable at best. I had to call 911 to report him after he called me whining about his life and his wife leaving him and how he didn't think he could go on, maybe the world was better off without him, or better yet his wife. The reason I felt compelled to do call 911 was because he stopped by earlier that week to show off his new "piece" tucked in his waistband. I'm a firearms lover, so it's not that the gun scared me, its the person who had it. You don't go out flashing it to everyone bc that makes me think you are irresponsible and probably should not have a weapon of any kind- and especially when you talk about offing yourself or your wife.Good grief, this guy- I cant even today. He keeps calling and I keep letting it go to voicemail. No way in hell am I going to rent him anything.I would not even send him to a competitor, he is just too much, and dangerous to boot.

    Hoo boy. Yeah, that would be a hard NO for me as well.
    Even duct-tape can't fix stupid. But it can muffle the noises.

      Based off past history and the calls and hopefully all of it is documented, you may want to get a no trespass order on him and family. You don't even want him showing up at your doorstep after the calls are done. If you like guns, hopefully you have one for protection. This guy is another drug addled entitled moron.

            I do, and I have a CPL - even offered to send them a copy of my certificate of completion for gun safety and use course-but my employer is adamantly against us carrying on site. They have given me pepper spray and a panic button to use in an emergency-but honestly right now if things get worse I may reconsider carrying. My life is more important than the job.I hate that it could come down to it. People are acting like fools out there. Our Sheriffs dept has issued a notice to the public they are not responding to any calls that fall outside certain categories to limit exposure to their deputies. I wish they would not have put that out there, its like inviting petty criminals to do what they will, leaving poor homeowners and business owners to defend themselves.

            Here is their Facebook notice to Kitsap county residents:
            Kitsap County Sheriff's Office

            March 13 at 8:13 PM

            COVID-19: Sheriff’s Office enacts temporary changes.

            The rapidly changing informational and medical environment concerning the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has compelled the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office to implement certain changes to patrol operations, reporting procedures and community services.

            These changes involve taking precautionary measures aimed at reducing exposure to the COVID-19 virus for sheriff’s patrol deputies, detectives and support services specialists as well as protecting the public whom we serve.

            Effective immediately:

            (1) 9-1-1 calls: for calls received by Kitsap 911 that are considered lower priority incidents based on reporting criteria, Kitsap 911 public safety telecommunicators will ask the caller if the report can be made using online reporting methods.

            Low priority reports are those incidents not in progress with no suspect information. An online report may be filed at:

            http://www.kitsap911.org/online-incident-report/

            Note: If the incident being reported is not listed under the Incident Type column, use “Other – Misdemeanor.”

            If a caller requests to have a patrol officer contact them, the 9-1-1 call will be dispatched to a patrol officer for triaging and response.

            (2) Non-injury, non-blocking motor vehicle collisions: these may be handled by telephone to assist with exchanging information and instructions on self-reporting using the Washington State Patrol Online Motor Vehicle Collision Reporting (OMVCR) format.

            OMVCR may be accessed at:
            https://fortress.wa.gov/wsp/wrecr/OMVCR/

            (3) Sheriff’s patrol officers will respond to civil standby or “keep the peace” requests only if decreed in a court order.

            (4) When responding to a location where people reside or work, sheriff’s patrol officers may first make contact by telephone to arrange for the reporting person to meet officers outside to facilitate social distancing (at least six feet). This will allow the responding deputies to assess the situation and take the appropriate course of action to resolve the incident.

            (5) Currently, sheriff’s offices are open for business. If you are sick or experiencing flu-like symptoms or have recently been exposed to someone with the coronavirus, we ask that you do not enter sheriff’s office premises.

              I'd tell him you have nothing available, it should be end of story, you don't need that kind of behavior on your property.

                  Uggh, he just would not stop calling. I finally answered the phone after listening to several voicemails and said Paul,The answer is no, please stop calling.We are very busy today and the last time we spoke I handed you an eviction notice that made it pretty clear you are not to rent with us again. He says, yeah I know I was just hoping...To which I interrupt and say OK I have to go but please stop calling. Some people just dont have a clue...

                    I would bet he calls again. This is when the phrase, "NO MEANS NO!" comes in to play in a big way.

                      I do not think it is the end of it. He may try to overnight in your parking lot - park after your closed and leave before you open. Make sure you have the necessary signage at your parking lot to support you if the police get involved. If he calls back, begging, etc suggest local camp grounds or beach camping to help him move along - this way it appears your helping, instead of a 'NO' which presents him no options.

                        Regarding not being able to carry on property, some property owners and management teams will not let you carry pepper spray either. And as a matter of fact, I prefer wasp spray. It hits the target from 10' away and you don't have to get close to "get it in their eyes" like pepper spray.
                        Throw kindness around like Confetti - But don't get glitter in your eyes!
