Landlord - Tenant In Phoenix
Numb with the indifference of uncaring, cold-hearted
people, playing God with government money.
Deciding to advise one not to pay rent, yet won't
put it down in writing - won't commit to telling the
Leaving a family of four stranded with no where to go.
A kind-hearted neighbor offers her vacant house to
move into - rent and security to be paid by the city
of Phoenix - only no one will answer or even return
calls so they can settle in for the holidays.
Northeast justice court - it's judge - ordered them
to move out by 1 p.m. the next day - not even giving
them 24 hours - and they were disabled!
Thanks to a kind-hearted neighbor offering to rent
her home, and other neighbors, with teenage daughters,
helping them to move everything out and into the house
Still nothing - no calls - from the city of Phoenix, Landlord/Tenant and Thanksgiving is over.
They had no gas or electric to cook with or keep warm,
but city employees had a nice vacation - never once
thinking of them or how they were faring without their promised help.
Numb from the indifference of uncaring cold-hearted
people, they are still alone in their misery, with no
hopes in sight and Christmas is around the corner.
All thanks to the city of Phoenix.
