I think the official logo for our condo association should be an ostrich with its head in the sand.
Because that seems to be the manner that some of my fellow board members choose to deal with association business.
I sent an e-mail last week to the board concerning the pack rat like habits of our handyman and a few suggestions to make sure this topic doesn’t become an issue in the future.
Do you know how many board members sent a response?
One person out of four took the time out of her day to lodge her opinions and concerns about the safety and security of our home.
That’s just pitiful.
But I decided to take the high road. I decided to send out a second e-mail concerning the subject last weekend and still have yet to hear back from the three who did not respond.
Now we’ve gone from pitiful to trifling.
One of two things is going on: Either I’m held in such low regard that I can’t even get a return e-mail or these three people are just so busy with their lives that they just can’t manage to squeak out an e-mail concerning association business.
But I’ll bet they’ll be the first to piss and moan the minute someone gets broken into.
Or the first to wonder, “How’d that happen” when someone accesses our building with a random front door key or code given out by a former renter.
Like I said---they’re a reactive bunch.
So what do you do when ¾ of your association ducks any type of responsibility for their home and the ones that serve on the board are lazy or so burned out that they don’t give a flying fuck?
