Bid on the Guard Shack

Don't write to my friend Chris by mistake. He totally takes to heart the e-mails that are sent to him in error.

From an e-mail exchange I can only assume is among a bunch of condo committee members that have nothing better to do than think about how to move money around:

Jane writes:

Well, guys, the bid from AR reads like this:

Repair damage to Guard House at Front Entrance, including moving building back to original footprint. Repairing damaged wood and door jambs. Repairing damaged metal roof. All material and labor included. Does not include painting. $2800.00

Talk to me.....

Connie replies:

I really think this is an expense we do not need. I just can't see the value in putting that much money into the Guard House. Just my opinion........

Then Chris adds his two cents:

I wonder if we'll think much of Connie's frugality when the mole people finally emerge from their underground sugar caves with their pet chupacabras and birkenstocks and find us vulnerable to their attacks because we didn't spend the extra money on a guard house. If anything we should be digging moats. I for one will not be a part of Connie's recreation of the Munich agreement.

Then the real Chris--the one who was originally supposed to be included--answers:

Hello All: I am not sure who Chris at (my buddy's e-mail) is and why he replied to correspondence concerning the guard shack. My email address is (something else). May I suggest that we utilize another, new, email concerning this matter.


Someone didn't like a non-committee member weighing in on their all-too-important decisions:

You have way too much time on your hands. This was not nearly as clever as you think you think it was. The "guardshack" is decorative and does not actually have a guard in it. Go back to sleep moron.

Luckily, I have located a picture of the Guard Shack to further educate Chris.

Although I really think he has a point about the underground sugar caves.

Does it concern anybody else that they believe a guardshack should be for aesthetics only? When will this puppetry of security theater end people?

Maybe the guard shack would still be in good repair had the HOA not let it fall victim to the mole people's vandalism.
