Seconded. OP, you have no contract with the HOA, the owner does and you should be dealing directly with your landlord, not the HOA.

I concur with this answer.

It's hard not to take this as a snub. I feel this all the time.

To lessen the emotion, I try to ask myself if there could be anything else happening in the background that I might not be aware of.

Was this ASM possibly hoping to test your DS? Or was this the ASM's way of getting your DS to the morning meeting? Is this ASM trying to give your DS more public speaking opportunities to improve their skill?

It's possible that the ASM doesn't have faith in your skill, but is that PROBABLE given your past interactions with them?

I hope that helps a little!

OF COURSE it's the fucking Russians. Why do they have such a blatant disregard for life in that country? There aren't enough Darwin awards to go around.

Yes, particularly if you've filed a lawsuit against the HOA.

I’m referring to the President even refusing to tell the lawyers (including hers) when things are getting fixed and the costs.

President pulled the trigger on the HOA lawyer first threatening litigation stating I’m making up my leaks.

President makes false claims that I block vendors from coming (false) or other lies when the lawyers talk. I’m spending more time telling my lawyer that this BS then getting things actually fixed so we can get rid of the mold and water damage so we can move back in, in the next six months.

Good thing you've got a lawyer then. Best of luck getting this all sorted out.

The HOA escalated to a lawsuit right away? No violation notice?

This is a tough situation for Boards, and I'm of the belief that Boards should work with owners to resolve these kinds of issues instead of being too punitive.

The hard part for Boards is that their fiduciary duty is to the Association, not any individual owner. Maintenance is the primary responsibility of an HOA Board, with the goal of protecting values for all owners. They can be compassionate in that duty, however, so seek a private hearing with them to discuss possible solutions.

Answer: The protests you are seeing are against China's rather harsh zero covid policy. China still maintains a zero covid policy, so if someone tests positive for covid they lock down an entire building, factory, district or even a whole city. This happens in a draconian manner, the people inside don't get to leave.

These protests were triggered by a recent fire in an appartment building in the city of .Urumqi. The building was in quarantaine because on of the residents had tested positive for covid. When the fire broke out, the residents were not allowed to leave nor was the fire department allowed to extinguish the flames. As a result a good number of people died. After this the Chinese government blamed the tragedy on the residents of the appartment building, saying the residents didn't do enough to save themselves.

How big or widespread the protests are is unknown, nobody can verify anything due to the strict control over the media in China. However, these protests are exceptional. Last time China had to deal with something like this was back in 1989.

They don't get marked down as a seasonal item. We sell them year-round unless they clearance out for a new model.

With that many power tools, I'm guessing she was planning to use her five-finger discount before you approached her. Or possibly stolen credit/gift cards. Good recovery!
