It was raining out yesterday, so when I got home I left my shoes and my umbrella on the rug outside of our condo. Some time during the night we got a letter from one of our neighbors about the 'incident'.
First, they said that leaving wet things on the carpet out there would leave water marks. My stuff was mostly on my rug to begin with, but even still, considering the crap people trudge around in all winter and then drag onto the carpeting, I think it can manage a wet umbrella.
Second, and this was the laughable part to me, they decided to remind us of the condo association rules about not leaving personal items in the hallway. Or, as my neighbor would like to have it, not leaving personal items that I don't like to see in the hallway. Because if they want to be a jackass about it, my floor rug, along with everyone else's, are personal items that should be removed, along with all the wreaths or whatever people have on their doors.
And of course the letter is signed "Sincerely, your neighbors", which is quite helpful, considering there are 8 units on our floor, so in reality it could be any of them, and at the very least it was someone on our side of the floor, so that's three units. But hey, why confront someone on a problem you're having when you can just be a jackass and write a letter and then sign it in virtual anonymity, knowing that we now can't do anything to refute your accusations.
So instead I have to blog about it. If any of you reading this live next to me and wrote that note, kiss my ass. And knock on my door next time.
