  • POUCH Happening – K9 Unit

One officer said, I was here before and I know that pets are not allowed here. But just to let you know they, pointing at the K9’s are officers too. I smiled and answered, I’m fully aware of that. They were here for about fifteen minutes and said they did not find anything they’re looking for. One tenant was here at the same time and heard the officer said they found nothing. He said, I liked it here, I feel safe when the police check your facility and know everything is fine.

  • POUCH Happening – Closed on Memorial Day

    When I arrived one morning a tenant was already parked ahead of me. I parked next to him but stayed in my car. I saw him going back and forth trying to open the office door. So finally I went out from my car and told him we open at 7:00 AM.

    He also said that he was here the same time yesterday. I told him we’re closed yesterday for the Memorial Day and pointed to him the door sign stating we’re closed. I also showed him the big sign for the access hours. at the entry gate

    From being upset earlier he now looked embarrassed so I asked him if he read all the posted signs. He said he lost his reading glasses and can’t read at close range. I told him next time just to call if he’s not sure. He just looked at me again as if he never heard what I said. Then smiling he said, he has a hard time hearing as well.

    He apologized for being early and thanked me for being here on time to help him out.
