A gentle knock at the door just after dinner. It was the real estate agent handling the sale of the block to developers. He wondered how my moving out plans were going, if he could be of any assistance, basically quizzing me about when I’d be out so the renovator guys can move in. I said it wouldn’t be for a couple of weeks yet – probably mid-July (I’ve got exactly a month today). And – get this – he said the new owners would pay me $500 cash if I was out within 7 days!
Well much as I’d love to be handed $500, at the moment I doubt I could handle that if I wanted to. No, I’ll be out in due course, but when it’s convenient for me, not them.
(Let’s hope their next step isn’t to call in the heavies.)
