About half the lockers I buy have evidence of drug use.  About half have letters from prison in them.  That should tell you something.

It does tell me something though I would say I don't see it in half the lockers...less than half for me. Mostly I think it's just they can no longer cope for any number of reasons....many of which we have listed.

From Wiki:

According to the "Self Storage Demand Study - 2007" (published by the SSA) one in ten U.S. households now rent a self storage unit. The growing demand for self storage in the U.S. is created by people moving (some 40 million Americans move each year according to U.S. Census data), and by various lifestyle transitions, such as marriage, divorce, retirement, a death in the family, etc.

I especially like the expression about people moving (or sometimes losing their lockers) due to...."lifestyle transitions."
