Put Out On The Streets (not me, a neighbor)

August 15th, 2008 at 05:00 pm

Today when I was returning to my apartment I noticed what I thought was moving activity at an apartment. Later when I walked back that way to pick up the mail, I realized it was 4 apartment complex employees doing the "moving," nothing was packed, everything was just being piled up outside, and there was a car marked Constable with a uniformed officer keeping watch.

Ouch.

Someone is going to come home to find they have been put out on the streets along with their HUGE piles of stuff. I'd be willing to bet that if that unfortunate resident could go back in time, they would buy less of that stuff and instead put money in to their Emergency Fund.

So ... How's YOUR emergency fund? If it's not good, what are you doing to bulk it up?

    Yeah, definitely a ringing endorsement for having a healthy emergency fund....

    i wonder how much of their stuff will still be there when they return?

    Scary! But I'm sure it won't be a surprise. I'll bet they knew it was coming!

    In my city, possessions can no longer be put out on the street/sidewalk upon eviction. I guess landlords have to get a dumpster and haul it away or maybe they are forced to rent storage for the stuff!

    I have never seen anything like that, but I live out in the boon docks!! Yes, I have a healthy emergency fund!

    How sad!

    Wow... I've never seen that happen before. What a shock for the person being evicted, and how sad. Hope there weren't children involved.

    I keep one year's living expenses in the EF and a "cache reserve account" for travel, taxes, etc. It sure helps me sleep at night knowing we are prepared for an emergency.
