However, the lady combatant felt that I was Beelzebub in the flesh. It was absolutely clear in her mind that the world wasn't big enough for the both of us.
The lady was smart. She thought fast on her feet and in general had a good command of the English language. However, as you read her string, it became increasing apparent to me that something else was bothering her. Every time I disagreed with her, she went ballistic. So, I started throwing her red meat bait. She took it every time. Every time she took the bait, she added more venom to the bite. The more bait that was tossed out, the more ravenous she became. She should have now demonstrated her bizarre approach to discussion issues. It's my way or the highway, Jack. Sometimes very smart people make poor decisions because of personal agendas or personality quirks.
I probably should not have done what I did. But, she seemed to insist on her crusade to save the world. And, I made a mistake. I reported some formula when calculating the rents to be charged in the proposed Cheisa Road project that were not accurate. It is true that rents are bracketed based on income. Each of four brackets must make at least a certain amount of monthly income, but can not exceed a certain amount of income. It was my understanding that the rents were based on the average Rowlett family income of just over $83K per year. That, too, is accruate. The average family income sets the basis for calculating the rents. However, I misreported the formulas. I have been informed that 15% of the project will have "market rate" rents. Other levels of income will range from $24K a year (which suits Social Security couples) to $48K per year for Workforce populations. I have oversimplified the equations, I know, but the exact numbers are known by the developer, not me. I don't manage these apartments for a living. They do.
So.....here we are. If you've been reading my blog, you know what I think. If you read the emotion packed Facebook string, you know what the apartment opposition thinks, or doesn't think.
All I want is for you to think.
