Lists and Lessons

We all know the dangers of multi-tasking. Texting and driving; walking and chewing gum; the list goes on and on. Today’s lesson is that multi-tasking can get you evicted from your apartment as well.

We recently evicted a tenant for stabbing her neighbor during a fight. What does that have to do with multi-tasking? Glad you asked. At trial the tenant testified that when the fight broke out she was so frightened for her safety that she went inside to call 911. All that fighting must have caused her to work up an appetite, though, because while she was in there she decided to make herself a bologna sandwich. It was only because she forgot to put the sandwich knife back down that she found herself back outside in the middle of the fight, waving the knife around and ultimately stabbing her neighbor in the process. Allegedly.

So there you have it. We should all take this as a lesson to slow down and take life one step at a time, lest we find ourselves on the wrong end of an eviction.
