  1. When tenant Randy left 721, he left a 3-section “sectional” couch; for further details on that, comment here.

  2. Property owner Lucy wants to donate the couch to sober-living manager/owner Charlie provided he will pick it up for free.

    • Lucy wants to coordinate the pickup with the existing tenants.

      • but Lucy doesn’t have the tenant phone #s

        • The property manager has the tenants’ phone numbers, but would charge for disposing of the couch, so Lucy decided to handle it herself.

        • Lucy told me property manager Don didn’t really want to give her the tenant’s cell #s, probably because he understandably didn’t want the property manager to side-track him and work directly with the tenants.

          But Lucy did remember that I have tenant Thomas’s cell # (yes, I got it when I first met him & we dialed each other, quote(Thomas XXXXXX (XXX) XXX-6994 – mobile, 3/2/12 5:02 PM 6 weeks ago 0 minutes long)) so asks me for it.

          I replied I would have to ask him first as I suspect Thomas may not be comfortable with me giving his cell # to his property owner, for these reasons:
          *One should not just give out somebody’s personal contacts w/o there permission. Indeed increasingly today, people are private with their personal contacts and especially don’t them given out in business contexts. Many people, including me, do not casually give out my cell #s to businesses and many agencies.
          *Even more, when I asked Thomas for his # so he & I could hang out, I said this would be nothing to do with me being related to the property owner, that I would be “cool” on that, so he agreed. And why did I say this? Understandably & from my personal experience with house mates, many tenants would not want to have as a same-age-group friend someone who is closely associated with their property owner, as they wouldn’t want potentially anything they do in their residence to get back to the property owner as to avoid the case the property owner might overreact. Yet now on the very first time I contact him using his personal #, it would be on stuff dealing with the property owner! –effectively going against my promise. He may then understandably not like that, putting me in an uncomfortable position to handle this matter, even if it’s just a small one, as it conflicts what I just promised him.

          Lucy did not get this logic and was simply quite angry that I would not just just give her Thomas’s cell # because she was the property owner & I was the tenant, but I still refused.

          So, initially (mis)seeing this matter as just a small thing, and telling me so, Lucy just asks me to SMS him a message. I agreed. Yes it was still awkward for me, but I wanted to help her, and at least then I could help without seemingly without having to give out (nor ask to give out) Thomas’s personal cell# on a business matter.

            Me: Owner Lucy heard from tenant Randy that 1 of the 3 sections of the sofa have been taken by a tenant. The retriever Charlie will need all 3. Are they all there? 11:27 AM
            Thomas XXXX: Hey mike sorry for the delay, we ar actually utilizing the 3rd piece of the sectional, which is a small portion. Upin leaving randy offered us the couch [|] to keep or sell, and we accepted. But utilizing it in the group home would be a much better use for it. We would like to keep the one piece for the rem[|]ainder of our stay here which is only through may, at which point you could take the final piece. I will have the garage door unlocked, let me know if t[|]his is ok 3:56 PM
