The Anatomy Of a Cluster Fuck

Eleven years ago I moved into my Village Woods condo.  On the patio there was a screen stapled to the bottom of the wall, probably so cats wouldn't run under it.  It looked odd so I purchased some lava rocks.

Someone owes me $15!
I placed them in the crook between ground and patio wall and there they stayed for ten years.  Four months ago, I got a nasty letter to "remove the trellis from under the patio wall".  There had been some zealous plant trimming and, well the green plastic just wouldn't do.  Knowing that the lava rocks would spill into the landscaping -- and no longer be mine but 1/126th mine.

Yesterday morning, the President (Herr Valerie Feld) told the landscaper to "get rid of the lava rocks" and today they're gone.

Now there's a clean run from the outside onto my patio for cats, rats skunks and flood water. 

And I ask you why did it take ten years?  Do you know what else has been going on on my patio for 10 years?  Termite Shit!  Termites have been chewing on the patio and balcony above for ten fucking years.  I have called an average of once every two years.  Oh, and they were going to paint the patio floor shortly after I moved in.  TEN YEARS AGO.

You can guess when the painting happened...
