Gorgeous Floors of the Queens Apartment




Though it was disconcerting to discover that one of the subcontractors who was working on our little New York apartment walked off with

Screw Drivers
Pliers
Wrench
Tape Measure
2 Rolls Blue Tape
Roll of Brown Paper
Putty Knife
Wall Scraper
Nose-Dust Guards
Steak Knives
2 Boxes Silverware
Wine Opener
Potato Peeler
and even
The Dish Soap.

It was nice to know that the floors came out so well and the contractor will deduct the cost of the stolen items from his bill.

Welcome back to New York...a city where they will snatch the bottle of Dawn.

Unbelievable!!! Did they think no one would notice??? Sounds like the Dawn was an appropriate choice - cuts grease. But the floors are lovely.

Welcome back to the City that Never Sleeps because everyone's up 24/7 making sure nobody steals their shit.

Hm. Could have been a neighbor... When the door was left open for the floors to dry or sumpin?

I dunno.

Sad though.
