A community pool is a lovely attribute to any apartment complex.
The thought of lounging around the pool on a hot summer day is appealing to most prospective tenants.
Of course, there are always those few, lovely tenants, who believe that they should get a rent discount because they don't use the pool.
What they don't know, however, is just how much effort goes into maintaining that giant hole of chlorinated water.
Of course most have pool men(I have about 600 stories about pool men, but we shall save those for later). Some of the responsibility still falls on the apartment manager, and that responsibility usually requires the removal of unwanted items.
See where I am going with this?
Items I've removed from the pool,
-The surrounding pool furniture(on too many occasions)
-A crib mattress
-A dead kitten
-My complex keys, from the deep end, while showing an apartment.
-Two ducks and four baby chicks. But they returned the following day, and the day after that, and the day after that..I finally just called them the apartment's mascot and filed all duck complaints in the imaginary "Complaints for God" folder, along with this one.
-A homeless man
-A homeless woman
-A baby doll(nearly gave me a heart attack!)
-A Blender(the top not the base). Those suckers sink, FYI.
-Beer bottles...lots and lots of beer bottles, because apparently people can't read.
And then, of course, there is always...
