A facility manager told this story.

We had a customer for 8 years...paid over 10K for her storage rents....every time I explained how much she was spending, including late fees, lock cuts and almost auction's she would cry to me that all her baby pictures and baby furniture was in there. I told her we would keep her personals and she could come pick them up if her unit went to auction. It finally came to that....her unit sold for 5 bucks! Because.....There was only 1 photo album in there with 2 pictures in the whole album. 2 plastic bags of clothes and a desk!!!! She paid over 10K to store this stuff!!!! My customers never stop amazing me with their stupidity!

That's what was in there at the time of the auction. There could've been other stuff added and removed over the 8 years she was there. I'm just sayin'.

Could have been, but knowing how this works, there probably wasn't!

Has a facility manager forgot to collect a deposit or sales tax from you?
