Foreclosures and Coffee

September 8, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Noah’s Bagels around 9:23 a.m. this morning: Two men are sitting next to me discussing their day. It is obvious they work in construction.

“So what’s the deal with this house today?”

“Well, turns out the homeowners left last week when they lost the house and decided to plug the drains and vacate with the water running.”


“Yep. Turns out it’s common when folks get foreclosed. They want to screw the bank so they tear apart the house.”

Lulu’s Octagon coffee shop three doors down. I just asked for a 12 oz. house coffee.

“Just a heads up we raised our prices.”

“Ah, how much?”

“The coffee will cost you $2.78”

No wonder folks are pissed off.
