Attended my very first condominium corp. AGM. People who knew told me it was going to be a freak show, and it was. Angry white men, incoherent mumblers, fact challenged defamers, preening small-town-council wannabe floptards, guys that talked like they were lawyers but weren't, guys who ran for village dog catcher and lost because they were too fucked-up-in-the-head...they all showed. We even had a lawyer that looked like a chubby 15 year old and stammered and sweated when he became flustered, much to the amusement of everyone in attendance. And they actually elected a couple of new board Members! One ran on the platform that there had been no explosions in the building during her previous term. She lost. And I kept flashing-back to my time in student politics, except that nobody offered to drop their pants to demonstrate that they were biologically human. Although I didn't stay quite to the end. My wife tried being friendly, but I said don't engage the crazy people or look them in the eye.
Man, if I'd known it was going to be like this I would have stayed renting. Local politicians didn't give a shit what I thought back then, but the junky down the hall thought I was "really classy".
