In fact if you do a job that I’m to lazy or inept to do, I might sue your ass.
A business developer in the Philadelphia neighborhood of Point Breeze is facing legal action after voluntarily cleaning up more than 40 tons of trash from a vacant lot neighboring his local business.
As the old adage goes, no good deed goes unpunished. Ori Feibush says he visited the local offices of the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority four times, sent in seven written requests and made 24 phone calls to the agency asking them to take care of a major eyesore: an empty lot next to his coffee shop was home to more than 40 tons of debris.
A spokesman for the Philadelphia Department of Weasily Excuses said,
“Like any property owner, [the authority] does not permit unauthorized access to or alteration of its property,” Paul D. Chrystie, director of communications at the Office of Housing and Community Development told the paper. “This is both on principle (no property owner knowingly allows trespassing) and to limit taxpayer liability.“
No word on why the city ignored the business owners repeated requests to have the lot cleaned up. Oh, to add insult to injury, city officials cited Feibush for having litter on the lot that he doesn’t own.
Tar. Feathers. City bureaucrats.
Some assembly required.
