- A few years ago, Lenny thought dipping his toe into the real estate market might shore up his retirement funds. Exactly 3 days after his closings, the real estate bubble burst thereby ensuring Lenny will be working well into his 90's.
- When Lenny and his wife went on a trip with us, Joe and I got a lovely room overlooking the Alamo with a couple of courtesy water bottles. Lenny got a first floor room overlooking a brick wall with damp, smelly floors and courtesy mold.
- Lenny decided to update his kitchen a couple years back and purchased several big-ticket appliances. Because they were not ready to be installed, he put off opening the boxes. When he did open them, several were damaged and the store refused to exchange them because of the delay in reporting.
Lenny did get that snowblower, and of course it has not snowed a lick all season long. Hardly a flake. It's January in Chicago and all the kids are begging to go sledding and we got nada.
So thank you, Lenny. Thank you for saving all those who might have perished while shoveling heavy snow from their driveways. Thank you for not making me late for carpool because I didn't allow enough time to scrape ice off the minivan. Thank you for saving us hundreds of dollars in salt bags. Had you not purchased that snowblower, why just imagine the misfortune to us all.
I am so grateful for all the bad luck you apparently absorb. I sincerely hope the year improves for you. But if it doesn't, could you please just not come anywhere near us?
