Heading out to the dumpster around 12:30 this afternoon, I saw yet again that our paving crew is awol.
They did suddenly reappear on Tuesday, after that mysterious absence of three/four days, worked at a remarkable pace, covered a lot of ground — paved the back of the complex, right side and right front areas and, amazingly, paved the front entry area.
The project was to have been completed yesterday morning, with only that morning set aside for "sealing/striping" because all areas were to have been paved by then, except they were not and the crew was once again no-shows.
I don’t have to worry about moving my car any longer as they got to me on Tuesday, as I surmised they would when I saw how fast and furious they were working and had proactively moved my car out of the way. However, I just talked to another resident who’d one morning got awakened early, by a neighbor, to move his car, as the crew had shown up and his car was in the work area. "How was I to know" said he inasmuch as nothing has been according to schedule, but said he was grateful to be alerted before a tow was called in.
My guess is, that in the chaos, an assist by a neighbor happened to more than a few residents.
As of this morning, there is still the left side and left front areas to be paved, so I’m guessing that, when I head out for tomorrow's workout, I’ll see the crew present and rushing to finish what’s left to be done before the weekend; but who knows as evidently they’re being paid by the job and not by the hour.
At any rate, I feel comfortable enough to cancel my car storage cube — with 17 days remaining, before I get charged for another month.
All this start, stop, showing up, disappearing, paving at warp speed to make up for lost time begs the question of work quality. Should it look like this?
In other news, while out and about a few days ago, I met the resident that moved into the upstairs across-the-quad corner unit — the bad energy unit. He was on the walkway coming in as I was going out, so I didn’t get to converse with him, ask him how he liked his unit, etc. I just introduced myself and welcomed him to the quad. He seems a personable enough little fellow, no physical ailments insofar as I can see, so I guess so far so good for him.
I’m not convinced there’s not something weird going on with that unit, so I’ll continue to keep quiet about what I’ve seen and continue to observe.
And now this just in ...
|Oh please do it. Sue him again.|
