Tis The Season.....For Evictions!!! Fa, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La!
As yes, can you sense it in the air? It is that time of year when we all get togther with our families and exchange presents. We celebrate the birth of our Savior. I love this time of year. The fresh snow, Christmas songs, all the yummy food. It seems as of late, that it is also the time of year for evictions!! A yes, just before Christmas and no home to speak of.....
I have evicted two different households in the past week. They both happened on the 17th of December. The first one, was a bit exciting with the male tenant using colorful words to describe me, while he was on the phone with his wife. As most of you know I am a property manager for a family that owns over 100 homes. We, (the sheriffs & I) woke the people up!! It was a quarter to 10:00 AM on a Thursday.
Now you may think me heartless or cruel to do it so close to Christmas, but they have had PLENTY of chances to pay their debt. Aaah yes, evicting people brings the Christmas spirit alive or at least it reminds of Mr. Scrooge or The Grinch. That is who I am these days. Dashing tenants' hopes of a Merry Christmas!!
The other house had a man, and some of his friends NOT on the lease living there...That tenant came back yesterday and was greeted by me and the police!! It was sweet! Two plain clothes swat cops and a sheriff cuffed him on the front porch!!! I have another home to evict the day AFTER Christmas. I decided to be nice and not evict them Christmas Eve. Ahh yes, Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards Men!!!
