Every Saturday there's a group of us that meet at my friend Bob's house for
a gaming session. Bob has been doing this for at least ten years (I only
joined a few years ago). Well, for the past month or so he's been
rennovating his house so we've been using the clubhouse in his development
for our weekly gaming sessions.
So we were at our gaming session this evening when two women enter and state
that we are not allowed to be there unless he's rented the clubhouse. Bob
perries that as a resident, he's allowed to be there as long as he doesn't
claim exclusivity and invites the two women to join in the session.
They decline the invitation and threaten to take the matter to the rest of
the Board. They then leave.
Some twenty minutes later they come back, armed with the Rules and
Regulations of said Association. The Rule (#2? I don't recall)
specifically states that any Member of the Board can request residents to leave the
“Common Areas” and said residents have to comply. There is nothing in the
Rules that govern who can and can't use the clubhouse. There are rules to
rent the clubhouse (a minimum of 26 people, maximum of 75, $75 rental fee
plus a $250 returnable deposit, among other things).
So we left.
Associations are eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil I tell ya. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
