When Leah came over yesterday (after a job interview--day off) she went right to the office to complain about the sidewalk not being shoveled. The office girls gave her the same song and dance, so she asked for the manager. He repeated all the same stuff--complaining that the residents had ruined a door in the other building that cost him hundreds of dollars to replace....on and on. Was not going to shovel. Said that the doors were so close together that people could use the other door in case of an emergency/fire alarm. Nothing Leah said seemed to knock any sense into him, either. Even tho she brought up that the doors on that particular end of the building are NOT right next to each other--at all.
She was still hopping mad when she got to my place. We were appalled! They expected people to use the door at the end of the building!? You'd have to come down the stairs and, instead of using the exit door right in front of you, turn around, open the hallway fire door, go back into the burning building, making your way down to the far end of the possibly smoke filled or burning hallway to get out? Ridiculous!
Leah left the office and took her camera and went all over outside taking pictures--hoping that they were watching and wondering what she was doing that for. We had discussed getting ahold of the firemarshal as the next step.
Here's the fire door/emergency door/exit door at the end of the stairwell on my far end of the building.
They have just shoveled enough so that you can open the door, as they claim is all they are required to do.
