>A tenant called yesterday to complain about bees hovering around their space. All I could think of was that scene in Tommy Boy where they are trying to get out of a speeding ticket..”Bees! They’re sting crazy! Your firearms are useless against them!”
Most of the time we just get calls about tenants being too hot, or too cold in their offices. Once in a while, we’ll get the, “We just fired an employee and need to re-key the suite.” Yesterday, it was all about insects.
We got another call from a tenant complaining about fleas in their space. This incited a debate about whether or not fleas could be carried and/or transferred by humans to other humans. I think it’s possible, but not probable.
Maybe a homeless guy wandered into someone’s office one day and took a nap on the couch in the reception area…then you could catch fleas. Although, I think it was just some idiot bringing their dog into the office without anyone else knowing. I’m amazed at how many people bring their pets into the office like it’s no big deal. We don’t allow animals in the building, but apparently these people just don’t care.
We actually had one prospective tenant claim that his/her doctor gave them a note saying that they needed to have their dog at work for THERAPY purposes. This was not a service dog helping out someone who couldn’t see or reach certain things. This was Rover the family dog.
