    Leisure World of Maryland-bring your own TP

     
    POINT BLANK©:
    LEISURE WORLD: INSIDE/OUT

    Bring Your Own TP

    Leisure World of Maryland is the age 55+ senior citizens resident community located in Silver Spring, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC.

    This week, the "Greens 1" high-rise condo apartment building General Manager, printed and taped notices on the ladies and men's bathroom doors of the residents community room:

    NOTICE!

    May 20, 2014

    Missing Toilet Paper

    “To all users of the Building One Party Room Restrooms:

    Toilet paper no long will be provided until the person who is stealing the toilet paper stops. On average one to two rolls are stolen each day.

    The toilet paper roller has been broken at least two times, because the person stealing the toilet paper rips the roller out of its holder.

    Please advise your neighbor to “bring their own” until this
    activity ceases.“

    As an employee of the Leisure World of Maryland Corporation, Inc., the "Greens 1" Property Manager states, “At least 70% of the occupants are over 65 and the median age is 75.” Reporting a $3+ MILLION Dollar operating budget, he recently completed a $2.8 Million exterior facade restoration project and is responsible for a $3+ Million roof replacement project starting in 2014. He is responsible for all contracting, financial operations and close at hand working with the board of directors.

    “SIGNS” OF INCOMPETENT $3+ MILLION DOLLAR CONDO MANAGEMENT:

    One is left wondering why, with a $3.5 MILLION DOLLAR BUDGET, management chose to intimidate, embarrass, and demean senior citizen residents by denying them toilet paper in THEIR community party/game room, rather than solving the issue by spending $39.10 for locking toilet paper containers?

    UPDATE: The community expressed outrage after reading this report late yesterday which resulted in the Manager being instructed to remove the BYO TP notices. Today newly printed notices were taped to the bathroom doors:

    Please Note!

    This restroom is for the use of our residents and their guests.

    Please do not take toilet paper out of this restroom, because that will create serious inconvenience to those who need to use it.

    Also, do not break the toilet roller equipment.

    Thank you.

    Locking toilet paper dispensers were installed today.
