As are you Cobia eh?  sorry :-\

What a mess.
Apologies to the board for creating this hydra~
Oh well......there's no such thing as bad publicity right?

I just sent a message to money, but thought I'd make the same point here as I did there~
if Glendon's video saves one person from dealing with what we had to, then that would be fantastic.

Ya - I know is wishful thinking.  I think I'll count this year how many toddler butts get toasty riding around in the stroller in July and Aug. this year.

Already getting warm in the 85 degree weather.  The crowds have to go down.  If not I'll have to clean the hood of my car so can fry some eggs while waiting for all the looky-loos in July.

Think we can already fry some eggs down here.  ;D

Final final (I know I keep saying that, but more and more it keeps coming up) update~
Don is at the CubeSmart caravan auction as I type.  I called to ask if he'd been blackballed and he laughed.  He said and I quote "Just the opposite.  The district manager walked up and shook my hand and apologized profusely."  He went on to tell me that they would no longer be doing consignment auctions and that there is now more paperwork to fill out ahead of time (sorry to those in a hurry) and that copies are presented to you immediately!

So out of this mess comes some good. 

Oh and it wasn't just Don and the other guy.....we found out a couple weeks ago that there was another issue on the same day with another facility.  Rough day for local buyers and CubeSmart staff.

But all in all~many lessons were learned, procedures changed and nary a bridge burned~

Well glad the policy's have changed. Too bad you had to pay the price.

Wonder if you had not made all the attempts to resolve the issue if they would have realized the problem with the consignment.

So good for you and Don for contributing to the policy changes.  Stardom and all.  ;)

That is good Rockin.  Still a tough lesson to learn but hopefully you learned it well and others from your mistake as well.  I know how painfull those lessons can be.

Cool that they did the policy change. Just seems dirty. That was big of Don to shake hands. Not sure I would have been back, much less been friendly.
