Flu shot hassle
The wife and I drove to Canton yesterday for the free flu shot clinic. What a process. First they scan your license and ask you a couple of questions. Then you are given a number and have a 15-25 minute wait. When your number is called, you go into another room and are asked questions about allergies, etc. No problem with that except the woman asking another person the same questions coughed into her hand, not her elbow.
Landlords have rights
Re: “Landlords Against Pets” (Nov. 3-9), Your opinion is your opinion but look at it from a landlord’s point of view. Landlords own their property and that means they do all the upkeep and pay taxes on the property. It belongs to them! They can require anything they want on their property before a person moves in. Landlords have rights too and this is one of them. If a tenant claims two people are moving in and several more move in how is that fair? Why shouldn’t they know? It’s their property. As far as pets, that is also a right of the landlord.
