PARK AVE CORPORATE CENTER????

http://archinect.com/people/project/22306172/park-avenue-corporate-center/22379454

JUST HOW MUCH DOES THE KING RAT OWN, ALREADY??? And does he EXTERMINATE IT???

This bastard seems to own a rat-shitload of real estate, but cannot reimburse a woman and her CHILD for losses that his negligence caused? My guess would be, if he wasn't such an asshole, he could write a check today!

And just in case anybody has any kind of bad-ass notions...

What Are Defamation, Libel and Slander?

Generally speaking, defamation is the issuance of a false statement about another person, which causes that person to suffer harm. Slander involves the making of defamatory statements by a transitory (non-fixed) representation, usually an oral (spoken) representation. Libel involves the making of defamatory statements in a printed or fixed medium, such as a magazine or newspaper.
Typically, the elements of a cause of action for defamation include:
  1. A false and defamatory statement concerning another;
  2. The unprivileged publication of the statement to a third party (that is, somebody other than the person defamed by the statement);
  3. If the defamatory matter is of public concern, fault amounting at least to negligence on the part of the publisher; and
  4. Damage to the plaintiff.

FALSE. GOT THAT? NOTHING HEREIN IS FALSE, AND IS IN FACT DOCUMENTED AND WELL WITNESSED. AS LONG AS IT IS TRUE, AND IT IS, I CAN KIND OF SAY WHAT I WANT.  

ALTHOUGH, I AM THINKING THAT DUMB ASS STATEMENT ABOUT THE FOOD OR BANANA OR WHATEVER IS A LITTLE SLANDEROUS. ESPECIALLY SINCE IDIOT FRED CUT MY LOCK OFF TWO WEEKS EARLIER AND STUCK IT IN THERE.

ANDREW FULLER kinda hinted along these lines once. So, I just want to make things clear.....

UPDATE!!!

MICHELLE WIGHT GOT A PROMOTION!
SHE IS NOW DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS!

WHAT. THE. FUCK?????
LOLOLOLLLLL.......

I actually FORGOT (or maybe blocked as part of the pain)...

In the telling of this tale, this manifesto, this blog, one pertinent thing about +CHRIS BARRY, Storage Rat King and what a dick he has been regarding this fucking disaster matter (you, or your flunkies, have been Googling yourself, haven't you, sport?).

At one point, during the period when I was having daily frequent conversations with JO ("WE ARE DOING ALL WE CAN!!") LEMACK, who answered the Corporate Phone (although why, I  cannot say; she has a voice like an inebriated drag queen and the telephone etiquette of a chihuahua. I also do not know what the fuck else she does), DEMANDING to talk to the Esteemed <snort> Mr. Barry, to be TOLD by said Jo, "he doesn't want to talk to you! He doesn't feel he has to!" or some bogus shit like that, Mr. Barry offered, via Jo to:

CREDIT ONE MONTH'S RENT. IN EXCHANGE FOR ME SIGNING A WAIVER AGAINST ANY DAAAAAMMMMAAAGGGGE.

Yeppers!

What. Does. That. Say. To. You ??????????????????? (*note: nobody even possibly comprehended the amount of damage there was, at this juncture.)

Something like, I am guilty. I knew exactly what was going on, and that I AM LIABLE! And I think you are a moron so, I am gonna weasel my way out of this, regardless of how much YOU'RE fucked? Because I am the Rat Storage KING, and you are a poor peon! I am the Storage King and I don't have to talk to you, little peon tenant that pays me and follows my rules! Ha HA!

Something like that?

YOU, Mr. Barry, approved, executed the agreement, signed the check for, the extermination, or have the stupid fuck(s) that did on your payroll.  You are in (Cobalt) Commercial Construction and are thus familiar with square footage ratios or some such shit, as well as regulations and potential damage caused by pests. Aren't you? Or is your head that far up your ass? Did you need a loss on the books, and so washed your little manicured pinky ringed hands over the Rogers Park store? Because, after all, there were also people living there, PROSTITUTION and it was run by somebody who was dumber than a rock. YOUR OWN ORKIN GUY said that the amount of treatment contracted for the severity of infestation and SIZE of the space was pretty much useless.

And you approved re-carpeting and painting, probably from your own cheesy Cobalt Construction workers, but were too fucking CHEAP TO CONTRACT A SUFFICIENT EXTERMINATION PACKAGE. LOLOLLLLLLL. Really. BTW-that "guarantee" that Orkin offers is only applicable  when you contract the treatment package they recommend. And, as recent as two weeks ago, there was still mouse shit to be seen all over the floor, from a window! I took a picture!

I don't know, really, what the Canadian dude (JEAN JODOIN) has to do with all of this. Nor do I care. Most Canadians I have dealt with in the past have been kind, upstanding people.Mr. Jodain, however, remains notedly silent and nonchalant. As such, he must also be designated a Rat King and Shithead.

You own a business, you are where the buck stops. CHRIS BARRY is listed as the President on all corporate type documents. AND HAS DONE NOTHING TO ACKNOWLEDGE, RECTIFY OR EVEN ADDRESS, EXCEPT IN AN ASSWIPE LIKE MANNER, this situation.

Thus, Mr. Barry is seemingly not only An Asswipe Shithead and Rat King (or King Rat), he's a COWARD. 

Whatsmore, evidently he and his partner, the (seemingly) elusive JEAN JODAIN are fucking multi multi multi BAZILLIONAIRES, creating trusts and acquiring real property.

 I am not

GROSS, indeed....

Gross Negligence/Willful and Wanton Misconduct

Courts in most states hold that a waiver intended to protect a provider from liability for gross negligence, reckless misconduct, or willful and wanton misconduct violates the public policy of the state. Some define ordinary negligence as the failure to act as a reasonably prudent person would act under the circumstances. Most states distinguish between ordinary negligence and gross negligence and define gross negligence as an extreme form of negligence in which one fails to use the care that even a careless person would use. Reckless misconduct is usually considered to involve more extreme conduct than gross negligence, while willful and wanton misconduct is generally regarded as the most extreme form of negligence.

Wouldn't RODENT CONTROL be a public policy of the state?

REDUX (see below for pics!)

Here is the short story as I posted on YELP: (and incidentally, they, too SUCK.)

This company has no business ethics, etiquette, concepts of truthful facts, or regard for its customers.

This place is SATURATED by mice. They permeated my unit, resulting in $1000s in loss along with grief, inane amounts of time, insane exchanges with employees  and having a LIVE litter IN THE BOX CONTAINING DISHES. What is left smells like a zoo.

I am stressed and exhausted and my 13 year old daughter is devastated. I could not have imagined this in my worst nightmare. It is my personal Katrina. And guess what? NO ONE CARES.

I have lost over half of my things due to rodent destruction and the current regional manager +MICHELLE WIGHT (there have been a few) claims she can do no more after buying me some containers and bags and paying for movers FROM one of their units TO another. I am going to have to sue to recover myself and my daughters losses now, a long and expensive process. And they have had the nerve to ask ME to leave, but I would anyway.

They  have claimed at various times they are not responsible for rodent control in their own building and business. Um, not according to city ordinances and case law.

The problem first became evident in MARCH and they then told me the mice were isolated to a particular area of the building and were being addressed "aggressively" (THIS WAS BY THE THEN REGIONAL MANAGER? PART OWNER? VP? WHO KNOWS, have heard it all). Same thing in April, May, June, July, August and September. Numerous mice were IN THE UNIT before during and after the move, which took over a week to organize and several hours.

I spoke with their Orkin tech who said the treatment they had was in no way sufficient for the property's size or level of infestation. They went the cheap route, clearly. BTW, folks, Orkin does what it is paid to do, period.

The site manager, FRED WEAVER (now fired) so admired by a previous poster, is a psycho; rude, unresponsive, lazy, unprofessional and I strongly suspect illiterate. When questioned about the rodent problem for MONTHS, his response is "it gonna take a minute". This is a site manager?

The corporate number is answered, when it IS, by a woman NAMED JO, who is just as bad or worse. The Owners, +CHRIS BARRY AND +JEAN JODOIN seem to think speaking with customers, the schmucks who butter their pretty crusty bread, is beneath them. The only  decent employee is a girl that works there, who these idiots set up and fired, too. She was pleasant and was sympathetic about the matter.   AVOID AVOID AVOID.

OVER ONE THOUSAND VIEWS!!!

YES! Thank you, whoever you are, and SUCK IT, LIFE STORAGE!
This means that hundreds of people know what shits you are are, you nasty rodent infested, pimping dickheads.

And they're talking.....

Hey, "Classy Lady"!

That was sophmorically lame. And irrelevant. And since it interests you so much, pretty much a non-event. BUT, I have a general idea of who you are. Which is, a dumb-ass, low level flunky of Life Storage.  That stupid shit is as good as you can come up with, and again it is way lame.

So--SCUM-bag, you wanna start a cyber war?

BRING IT, and good luck with THAT.

Because, I remind you that what your company, with you contributing, did is illegal and reprehensible. At the end of the day, they will pay. They can make it easy and try and negotiate, or make it hard and expensive--and damage their reputation MORE.

In addition, please note that this blog is within the parameters of the law (and ethics), as everything alleged here is documented, photographed or witnessed. EVERYTHING. Some even by your former colleagues, who are not only the few in the organization that are honest, but who got totally screwed by it because they are.  As well as your customers.

Besides, now I am sure THEY know. By the way, your video is discoverable and subject to forensics if need be. See, in this day and age they can tell what's been altered and erased.

So, either do what you can to FIX IT, or shove it up your flabbity ass. I and this blog are going nowhere and are grateful you acknowledged our presence.

Peace. Out.  Stephen.

Am I some kind of a nut?

No.

Well, maybe.

Look, I am a single mother with a young teen who has experienced a lot of anguish over this and lost over half of the things my daughter and I owned. It effected my mental state, work, relationships and finances. I would have thought Life Storage, so warm and fuzzy in the media would have righted its wrong. They knew for months about the problem, related problems  and, it's a safe bet, all the other things (e.g., a girl turning tricks in their facility, people living there--it was all on video). And did nothing except get attitude and make a nasty retaliatory move, locking me out of my unit (with my purse, keys and money in it!) when I had a zero balance and a perfectly good lease (read up on successor clauses, Andrew Fuller, 'k?).

Their employee laughed when my daughter spotted a mouse and got hysterical. 

Their "manager", who talked like he had shit in his mouth was either a bigger idiot than I have indicated or taking a cut of something (drugs, tail, or cash). HOWEVER, upper management is responsible for lower (and I DO MEAN LOW!-heh) management. The guy who signs the paycheck....

Their business has no governing body.
They know they are far richer than me.
They can afford to take a loss on one property, so they don't really care if it has a bad rep or not and the residents tenants will continue to pay, as they have no where to go.


They have indicated they think it's okay. And that is the worst.

Make this right, gentlemen, and it will all go away. But until then, the campaign continues....

So, what's up with the FLIES?

Well, put simply, they didn't have wallpaper with mice.
I felt the site needed a bit of spiffing up.
And, where there's mice, there's flies.
Plus they're pretty icky themselves.
