The Painted Lines Saga Continues.

So, as none of you may remember, I was kicked out of Western Home on Saturday Afternoon by an individual claiming to be a manager.

Why? Well they were going to be painting the parking lot lines that night and needed everyone out before nightfall. 

Usually this would be a fine and straightforward request, but the trouble is that friends of mine were kicked out of that very same parking lot for the same reason, weeks earlier.

Yet, no parking lot line painting took place, so I had a great deal of trouble believing this guy (who looked suspiciously like the guy who kicked my friends out).

I left, as it is their right as the owners of that parking lot to kick people out. It is their land after all, despite the few hours notice to move (after being settled in for the weekend). 

So, all last week I was working up all manner of sharp and witty comebacks for when that same individual tried to get me to move (from a non-painted parking lot).

I was going to call him out for the liar that he would be and demand that he come clean as to the real reason why he wanted me and those like me out of that parking lot.

So, as I was approaching Western Home on Friday afternoon I was intently scouring the parking lot for any hint of proof as to no lines were painted, yet again.

The trouble was that the lines looked nice and fresh. Upon closer inspection it looks as though they did paint the lines. 

Not only that but the lot had more than the usual number of RV’s parked here and there (all politely parked away from the front doors).

So, they did indeed paint the lines, and I will give them that. I don’t mind moving to get something done, just as long as you actually do what you said you were going to do.

To be shoved off for such a reason yet to have nothing being done, is an insult. It makes you feel as if there is something wrong with you, that you are an undesirable “social leper” as it were. 

Trust me, I’ve been made to feel like that, and I know others have as well. 

But, they shoved me off to pain the lines, and actually painted the lines . . . and I was not harassed all weekend. So, that’s good (the painted lines saga now ends).

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
