I’m sure it made sense to someone, this posting of an apartment complex management’s response to a resident’s complaints. But some conversations, I think, are best conducted in privacy. A sampling of the resident’s itemized complaints — nearly all of them concerning animal waste — and management’s point-by-point rebuttal:

“C. “All grass all around building is full of dog pee (grass on the edge of sidewalks are burnt).”

Response: Instances of lawn areas damaged by dog urine are obvious at the two Second Floor Entrances to the Building, as well as along the two walkway approaches to the Third Floor Entrance. However, we have not found evidence that grass around the entire Building is full of dog urine.”

The entire lawn isn’t soaked in pee, after all. Why, there’s still some perfectly green places left. It’s a little like reality TV, but you can read the rest here.
