I’m all for having rule of law and order.
I don’t think it would be much of a life to live if things were just simply and totally chaotic.
However, with that rule of law there is also supposed to be some common sense and compassion. I see none of that when it comes to our HOA and their treatment of my neighbor over a minor HVAC situation. What I see is a sweet older lady, who is on her own with a fixed income getting bullied. And what was her crime? The HVAC compressor cabinet outside her home is faded out. That’s right, she is being threatened with all manner of fines and litigation because her HVAC cabinet next to her house is sun faded. So this lady’s reward for making sure the HVAC maintenance happened consistently so it lasted along time is harassment from the HOA? That just sounds too insane to be true. However to my grave dismay, it’s not. I have attempted to reason with the people behind the decision to threaten my neighbor. There was zero compassion or understanding from them. I went as far as to grab my son and go over there to paint the HVAC cabinet. This too was met with derision. They actually want a lady on a fixed income to replace HVAC equipment that works just fine because it’s not the right color. It’s obscene really. So I don’t feel so bad about organizing a protest against this sort of behavior from the HOA. I’m going to make sure that every newspaper, local new channel or anyone else gets the facts about this terrible breach of common decency.
