I have HAD it.
The HOA is still refusing to remove the tree on their jogging path (which I use at least 3 times a week), so I emailed the property management company AGAIN (they ignored me last time) and left a message on the HOA’s public Facebook page.
Can somebody PLEASE give me an estimated date as to when the tree that is down on the jogging path off of (Street) will be removed?
I am sick and tired of their bullshit reasons as to why the tree hasn’t been removed after six weeks–they’re a volunteer organization, they haven’t had the time, they’re dealing with contractors, they’ve been spending all their time plotting behind the HOA members’ backs to get a new property management company without telling anybody, there’s been a delay BECAUSE they switched property management companies two weeks ago. Wah. Wah. Wah.
When? It’s been more than a month now and every time I ask, I get told “Soon.” When is ‘soon’? You guys have had ample time to take care of this and you have not. The last time (that I am aware of) that a tree was down in the park off (Street), it took 3 months for the tree to be removed. It really shouldn’t take that long to get a tree removed and you guys have had ample time, volunteers or not, to deal with this problem. This should have been dealt with BEFORE you changed management companies WITHOUT telling anyone. Nobody (again, as far as I know) was informed of the change until well after the fact.
That’s what I wrote in response to their bullshit. And then I went back and took it down because really, I know that I’m only going to get more bullshit answers from them as to when.
I’m sick of fighting with them. I’m actually tempted, at the moment, any to respond with “Blah blah blah BULLSHIT!” but I won’t.
Because that’s immature.
I don’t know what else I can do. Code Enforcement for our town has told me they can’t do anything really because it’s on HOA owned property. So they can’t make the board do squat.
I am so frustrated right now I could spit snails. SNAILS, people.
Because there’s literally (aside from going and moving it myself) nothing else I can do.
I tried emailing the new property management company, but they ignored me which doesn’t surprise me one bit. The old property management company did the same thing a lot of times…you’d call or email and get zero response.
We can’t move…we can’t afford to right now and even if we could, there’s nowhere in this town (aside from the trailer park) that doesn’t have an HOA.
Besides…I love my house. I love my neighbors. But I swear this HOA is draining my will to live sometimes as well as our bank account every year. And for what? We get almost no benefits (other than the pool) from the HOA. We’re paying into it and paying into it and for WHAT?
Two parks, which barely get maintained, a pool that doesn’t get maintained like it should, a security guard who’s never AT the pool he’s supposed to be guarding and a jogging park that they like to pretend doesn’t exist unless somebody complains about the grass and the brush.
So listen to your old auntie, kiddies…don’t ever buy a house with an HOA because they will treat you like garbage and expect you to like it.
