As he's cleaning up, I walk over to look at the sticker. 1) It's BIG, UGLY and has BRIGHT RED writing on it. 2) His boss told him it had to be RIGHT NEXT to the handle of the door, not down subtly in the corner, and 3) The sign reads: Balcony Weight Not to Exceed 1,500 pounds.
I'm thinking, "No shit Sherlock!" Now, if you saw my balcony, you'd know that having 4 people on it would be pushing the limit of being comfortable.
I asked Jason why the sudden need for a sticker to tell me something so freaking obvious. He said, "Well, another tenant was storing things out there--very heavy things--and his balcony started to cave in. And, he's suing the apartment complex."
It's a good thing Jason didn't know the guy's name.
Once again, when common sense fails us, we head to the legal system. It's got to be someone else's fault that I'm a huge giant dumbass, right?
