… and how it pertains to real life.
- You are part of a community, like it or not, big or small, populated or wooded, and you can either be a good part or a bad part.
- Paying your dues to the association is part of being in the association’s budget so that your neighbor’s fence gets repaired with some of your money, and your backed-up sewer line gets fixed and your floors replaced with some of my money when the poop hits the Pergo.
- Everybody wants a package of comfort that is packed with varying sizes of the same items: Security, Financial Stability, Quiet Hours, Nice Neighbors, Cleanliness, Rules.
- Not everybody, in fact, most people, won’t do much to reinforce or model that behavior.
- There is always, always, always a neighbor who everybody thinks is crazy and is probably legally crazy, but they always think everybody else is crazy.
- I wish the people of the association were all doing so greatly that there were no issues financially or physically to deal with, but that will never ever be the case.
- The amount of work to be done is inverse to the amount of money to pay for that work.
- The priority of the work is perceived by whomever needs their walls to stop leaking.
- The priority of the work is determined by whomever holds the checkbook.
- Never never never ever buy a condominium older than 10 years.
