From Wikiquote Jump to: navigation, search To work for a living certainly cannot be the meaning of life, since it is indeed a contradiction that the continual production of the conditions is supposed to be the answer to the question of the meaning of that which is conditional upon their production. ~ Søren Kierkegaard A man who works at another’s will, not for his own passion or his own need, but for money or honor, is always a fool. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Work that is pure toil, done solely for the sake of the money it earns, is also sheer drudgery because it is stultifying rather than self improving. ~ Mortimer Adler The only difference as compared with the old, outspoken slavery is this, that the worker of today seems to be free because he is not sold once for all, but piecemeal by the day, the week, the year, and because no one owner sells him to another, but he is forced to sell himself in this way instead, being the slave of no particular person, but of the whole property-holding class. ~ Friedrich Engels Work makes one free. ~ Lorenz Diefenbach Being busy does not always mean real work. … Seeming to do is not doing. ~ Thomas Edison Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom. ~ Albert Einstein The reward of a thing well done, is to have done it. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson The world is full of willing people, some willing to work, the rest willing to let them. ~ Robert Frost One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. ~ Elbert Hubbard A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both. ~ L. P. Jacks 99 hundreths of all the work done in the world is either foolish and unnecessary, or harmful and wicked. ~ Herman Melville It has become an article of the creed of modern morality that all labour is good in itself — a convenient belief to those who live on the labour of others. ~ William Morris Let the future tell the truth and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine. ~ Nikola Tesla We live in the age of the overworked, and the under-educated; the age in which people are so industrious that they become absolutely stupid. ~ Oscar Wilde Towards this fine honor of a trade converged all the finest, all the most noble sentiments—dignity, pride. ... In those days a workman did not know what it was to solicit. It is the bourgeoisie who, turning the workmen into bourgeois, have taught them to solicit. ~ Charles Péguy

Work is sustained effort to achieve a goal or result. Labor is effort expended on a task.

  • No single event has influenced the history of labor in Illinois, the United States, and even the hifhissx. app pandoraworld, more than the Chicago Haymarket Affair. It began with a rally on May 4, 1886, but the consequences are still being felt today. Although the rally is included in American history textbooks, very few present the event accurately or point out its significance.

  • When we see a great man desiring power instead of his real goal we soon recognize that he is sick, or more precisely that his attitude to his work is sick. He overreaches himself, the work denies itself to him, the incarnation of the spirit no longer takes place, and to avoid the threat of senselessness he snatches after empty power. This sickness casts the genius on to the same level as those hysterical figures who, being by nature without power, slave for power, in order that they may enjoy the illusion that they are inwardly powerful, and who in this striving for power cannot let a pause intervene, since a pause would bring with it the possibility of self-reflection and self-reflection would bring collapse.

  • A rational, moral being cannot, without infinite wrong, be converted into a mere instrument of others’ gratification. He is necessarily an end, not a means. A mind, in which are sown the seeds of wisdom, disinterestedness, firmness of purpose, and piety, is worth more than all the outward material interests of a world. It exists for itself, for its own perfection, and must not be enslaved to its own or others’ animal wants.

  • The consistent anarchist, then, should be a socialist, but a socialist of a particular sort.

  • Though thousands of people indulge themselves in it regularly, and even develop a taste for it, there is no doubt in my mind (and that of scientists whom I employ to prove it) that Work is a dangerous and destructive drug, and should be called by its right name, which is Fatigue.

  • I spent a busy day today, but got little done. This is because I am at last becoming perfect in the art of seeming busy, even when very little is going on in my head or under my hands. This is an art which every man learns, if he does not intend to work himself to death.

  • The capitalists soon had everything in their hands and nothing remained to the workers.
    • Friedrich Engels, Principles of Communism (1847)
  • The costs of production of labor consist of precisely the quantity of means of subsistence necessary to enable the worker to continue working, and to prevent the working class from dying out. The worker will therefore get no more for his labor than is necessary for this purpose; the price of labor, or the wage, will, in other words, be the lowest, the minimum, required for the maintenance of life.
    • Friedrich Engels, Principles of Communism (1847)
  • Personally, I have nothing against work, particularly when performed, quietly and unobtrusively, by someone else. I just don't happen to think it's an appropriate subject for an "ethic."

  • Every employee in an undertaking, then, takes a larger or smaller share in the work of administration, and has, therefore, to use and display his administrative faculties. This is why we often see men, who are specially gifted, gradually rise from the lowest to the highest level of the industrial hierarchy, although they have only had an elementary education. But young men, who begin practical work as engineers soon after leaving industrial schools, are in a particularly good position both for learning administration and for showing their ability in this direction, for in administration, as in all other branches of industrial activity, a man’s work is judged by its results.

  • To follow and demonstrate the path of Truth, Simplicity and Love is man’s supreme duty and the highest Yoga. Diligent work is a quality of this path, for laziness is death on earth.

  • A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation.

To himself, he always appears to be doing both.

  • Jesus ... combines all duties (1) in one universal rule (which includes within itself both the inner and the outer moral relations of men), namely: Perform your duty for no motive other than unconditioned esteem for duty itself, i.e., love God (the Legislator of all duties) above all else; and (2) in a particular rule, that, namely, which concerns man’s external relation to other men as universal duty: Love every one as yourself, i.e., further his welfare from good-will that is immediate and not derived from motives of self-advantage.

But working for a living cannot be the meaning of life, since it would be a contradiction to say that the perpetual production of the conditions for subsistence is an answer to the question about its significance which, by the help of this, must be conditioned. The lives of the other class have in general no other significance than that they consume the conditions of subsistence. And to say that the significance of life is death, seems again a contradiction.

  • In the early days of the world, the Almighty said to the first of our race "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread"; and since then, if we except the light and the air of heaven, no good thing has been, or can be enjoyed by us, without having first cost labour. And inasmuch [as] most good things are produced by labour, it follows that [all] such things of right belong to those whose labour has produced them. But it has so happened in all ages of the world, that some have labored, and others have, without labour, enjoyed a large proportion of the fruits. This is wrong, and should not continue. To [secure] to each labourer the whole product of his labour, or as nearly as possible, is a most worthy object of any good government.

  • It is better, then, to save the work while it is begun. You have done the labor; maintain it—keep it. If men choose to serve you, go with them; but as you have made up your organization upon principle, stand by it; for, as surely as God reigns over you, and has inspired your mind, and given you a sense of propriety, and continues to give you hope, so surely will you still cling to these ideas, and you will at last come back after your wanderings, merely to do your work over again.

  • Adam was created righteous, acceptable, and without sin. He had no need from his labor in the garden to be made righteous and acceptable to God. Rather, the Lord gave Adam work in order to cultivate and protect the garden. This would have been the freest of all works because they were done simply to please God and not to obtain righteousness. … The works of the person who trusts God are to be understood in a similar manner. Through faith we are restored to paradise and created anew. We have no need of works in order to be righteous; however, in order to avoid idleness and so that the body might be cared for an disciplined, works are done freely to please God.

  • It is always necessary that the substance or essence of a person be good before there can be any good works and that good works follow and proceed from a person who is already good. Christ says in Matthew 7:18: “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.” ... The fruit does not make the tree good or bad but the tree itself is what determines the nature of the fruit. In the same way, a person first must be good or bad before doing a good or bad work.

  • Labor produces marvels for the rich but it produces deprivation for the worker. It produces palaces, but hovels for the worker. It produces beauty, but deformity for the worker. It replaces labor by machines, but it throws one section of the workers back to barbaric labor, and it turns the remainder into machines.
    • Karl Marx, “Alienated Labor,” Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts (1844), The Potable Karl Marx (1983), p. 135.
  • What, then, constitutes the alienation of labor? First, in the fact that labor is external to the worker, that is, that it does not belong to his essential being; that in his work, therefore, he does not affirm himself but denies himself, does not feel well but unhappy, does not freely develop his physical and mental energy but mortifies his body and ruins his mind. The worker, therefore, feels himself only outside his work, and feels beside himself in his work. He is at home when he is not working, and when he is working he is not at home. His work therefore is not voluntary, but coerced; it is forced labor. It is therefore not the satisfaction of a need, but only a means for satisfying needs external to it. Its alien character emerges clearly in the fact that labor is shunned like the plague as soon as there is no physical or other compulsion.
    • Karl Marx, “Alienated Labor,” Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts (1844), The Potable Karl Marx (1983), p. 136.
  • When we have weighed everything, and when our relations in life permit us to choose any given position, we may take that one which guarantees us the greatest dignity, which is based on ideas of whose truth we are completely convinced, which offers the largest field to work for mankind and approach the universal goal for which every position is only a means: perfection.

  • He that would enjoy life and act with freedom must have the work of the day continually before his eyes. Not yesterday's work, lest he fall into despair; nor to-morrow's, lest he become a visionary—not that which ends with the day, which is a worldly work; nor yet that only which remains to eternity, for by it he cannot shape his actions.
    Happy is the man who can recognise in the work of to-day a connected portion of the work of life and an embodiment of the work of Eternity. The foundations of his confidence are unchangeable, for he has been made a partaker of Infinity. He strenuously works out his daily enterprises because the present is given him for a possession.
    Thus ought Man to be an impersonation of the divine process of nature, and to show forth the union of the infinite with the finite, not slighting his temporal existence, remembering that in it only is individual action possible; nor yet shutting out from his view that which is eternal, knowing that Time is a mystery which man cannot endure to contemplate until eternal Truth enlighten it.

  • It is assumed by most people nowadays that all work is useful, and by most well-to-do people that all work is desirable. Most people, well-to-do or not, believe that, even when a man is doing work which appears to be useless, he is earning his livelihood by it — he is "employed," as the phrase goes; and most of those who are well-to-do cheer on the happy worker with congratulations and praises, if he is only "industrious" enough and deprives himself of all pleasure and holidays — in the sacred cause of labour. In short, it has become an article of the creed of modern morality that all labour is good in itself — a convenient belief to those who live on the labour of others. But as to those on whom they live, I recommend them not to take it on trust, but to look into the matter a little deeper.
    • William Morris, "Useful Work vs Useless Toil" (1885); later published in Signs of Change : Seven Lectures, Delivered on Various Occasions (1896).
  • It is of the nature of man, when he is not diseased, to take pleasure in his work under certain conditions. And, yet, we must say in the teeth of the hypocritical praise of all labour, whatsoever it may be, of which I have made mention, that there is some labour which is so far from being a blessing that it is a curse; that it would be better for the community and for the worker if the latter were to fold his hands and refuse to work, and either die or let us pack him off to the workhouse or prison — which you will.
    Here, you see, are two kinds of work — one good, the other bad; one not far removed from a blessing, a lightening of life; the other a mere curse, a burden to life.
    What is the difference between them, then ? This: one has hope in it, the other has not. It is manly to do the one kind of work, and manly also to refuse to do the other.
    • William Morris, "Useful Work vs Useless Toil" (1885); later published in Signs of Change : Seven Lectures, Delivered on Various Occasions (1896).
  • In his discussion on slavery Aristotle said that when the shuttle wove by itself and the plectrum played by itself chief workmen would not need helpers nor masters slaves. At the time he wrote, he believed that he was establishing the eternal validity of slavery; but for us today he was in reality justifying the existence of the machine. Work, it is true, is the constant form of man's interaction with his environment, if by work one means the sum total of exertions necessary to maintain life; and the lack of work usually means an impairment of function and a breakdown in organic relationship that leads to substitute forms of work, such as invalidism and neurosis. But work in the form of unwilling drudgery or of that sedentary routine which... the Athenians so properly despised—work in these forms is the true province of machines. Instead of reducing human beings to work-mechanisms, we can now transfer the main part of burden to automatic machines. This potentially... is perhaps the largest justification of the mechanical developments of the last thousand years.

  • Looking for work in order to be paid: in civilized countries today almost all men are at one in doing that. For all of them work is a means and not an end in itself. Hence they are not very refined in their choice of work, if only it pays well. But there are, if only rarely, men who would rather perish than work without any pleasure in their work. They are choosy, hard to satisfy, and do not care for ample rewards, if the work itself is not to be the reward of rewards. Artists and contemplative men of all kinds belong to this rare breed, but so do even those men of leisure who spend their lives hunting, traveling, or in love affairs and adventures. All of these desire work and misery only if it is associated with pleasure, and the hardest, most difficult work if necessary. Otherwise their idleness is resolute, even if it spells impoverishment, dishonor, and danger to life and limb. They do not fear boredom as much as work without pleasure.

  • Pride in one’s work carries with it a determination to accept the demands imposed by that work: in the case of philosophy to follow the argument where it leads, in the case of history to discover what actually happened, in the case of literature to explore to its depths a particular theme. In consequence, this sort of pride demands freedom: it has to be laid low in any authoritarian State. The historian, in such a system, has to conform to official interpretations of the past, the philosopher to dogmas, the writer to stereotypes of human action, the craftsman to “production-schedules.” More subtly, attempts are made to lay pride low in a consumer’s society: the film-director, the novelist, the craftsman are called upon to produce “what will sell” at whatever cost to their pride in workmanship.

  • These bygone workmen did not serve, they worked. They had an absolute honor, which is honor proper. A chair rung had to be well made. That was an understood thing. That was the first thing. It wasn’t that the chair rung had to be well made for the salary or on account of the salary. It wasn’t that it was well made for the boss, nor for connoisseurs, nor for the boss’ clients. It had to be well made itself, in itself, for itself, in its very self. A tradition coming, springing from deep within the race, a history, an absolute, an honor, demanded that this chair rung be well made. Every part of the chair which could not be seen was just as perfectly made as the parts which could be seen. The was the selfsame principal of cathedrals. … There was no question of being seen or of not being seen. It was the innate being of work which needed to be well done.

    I placed an order for a bracelet and charm on December 7th and received an email confirmation the next day. The receipt showed my items with two different email addresses to contact with any inquires. The receipt stated that the charge would appear under Siam Trading online. The receipt also said shipping would take 7 to 14 business days and I would receive an email to confirm shipping. On December 20th, I sent an email inquiring about my order. I received an email stating that the email was undeliverable. I tried the other address and received the same notice. I then went to the website and sent inquiries 4 times on their live chat request and was never contacted. I decided then this must be a Bogus online store.

    My 15 year old son purchased what he thought was Pandora Jewelry Charms from Pandora Online Store. The charms were advertised as genuine Sterling Silver Pandora Charms and were even marked .925 indicating the silver content. What he got was a silver plated pot metal charm that had the finish coming off within 6 weeks. When I contacted the company I was told for what he paid for them he should have known they were imitations. I have tried to get my sons money back repeatedly but the company only offered $15 USD back. He purchased 6 charms @ $10 USD each plus shipping. I talked via email repeatedly with Lucy and have not received any further satisfaction for purchasing their cheap imitations. DO NOT BUY FROM  Pandora Online Stores they are fake. Purchase from reputable U.S. based companies who will sell you the genuine product and not a fake.

    Heron Walk Apartments ripoff Jacksonville Florida
    I have lived in Heron Walk Apartments (a gated community) for about nine months now. My husband noticed the buildings were too close together and not enough parking spaces before we signed our lease. He went on to ask the leasing agent if there was enough parking for everyone, the leasing agent assured us parking would not be an issue. He also said in fact we write down your tag #'s and we keep them on file in order to keep up with our tenants. We also notice that there was a dip on the sidewalk. My husband went on to ask if there was any flooding, the leasing agent replied that there had not been any flooding reported. As a result of insufficient parking, residents were forced to park along the sidewalk or on the other side of the apartment complex. One night we parked along the sidewalk because there wasn't any parking left and our car was towed away costing us $125 to get our car out. We went to the office to report it and they just told us that it was our fault for parking illegaly and that they couldn't do anything about it. Also there was issues with flooding, which we have pictures as proof and cars were being broken into because the gate broke down three to five months ago and to this date it still does not work. We reported all of these issues and not one of them was addressed!!!!!! Our car was towed for the second time and my husband out of fury blasted all the windows to our apartment. The cops came and we admited to it, we are willing to pay for all of the damages. The apartment complex evicted us and in the letter of eviction they are specifying that even though we dont live there any more, we are liable for the 5 months worth of rent that were left over from our lease. We gave them a letter detailing the reasons why we should not be liable for those months and we have not heard a response back, we told them that we are going to pay for the damages. We have no problem with that. Edna Jacksonville, FloridaU.S.A.

    Ji feng dianzishangwu Liexiao PANDORASEM.COM Scam. I ordered some Christmas presents claiming to be genuine Disney Pandora what I received after paying £80 was complete rubbish. Not a single Disney or Pandora charm was delivered. I'm so angry they refusing to give me my money back. It's not even worth £1.00 what they have sent. China Internet
     I ordered some Pandora charms off the website after emailing them and being assured it was genuine Pandora. I placed an order for £80 which they took straight from my account plus more. After I placed the order I received confirmation that the items I ordered would be delivered within 10-15 daY's. After waiting almost a month and me sending numerous emails to them and them not responding I finally received my parcel 5 weeks later. I was truly upset and shocked when I opened it to find that what I ordered is not what they sent. In fact it was complete tat. Not a single thing was Pandora. Not one. Not one of them was what I ordered either. I ordered a Minnie mouse charm... They sent me a broken motorbike. I also ordered a safety chain for my bracelet ... They sent me a horse charm. I truly am gutted. I have requested yet again another refund and have had no response again surprising. I'm so upset as they guaranteed me it was real. Now I don't know what to do. I can't believe how much of a scam this is after they promised me it was real. I feel so stupid.

    Wasseem El Wardany of Pandora Contact Center Stopped Paying and Started Ignoring Other
    I am a call center campaign broker and I referred Wasseem El Wardany of Pandora Contact Center from Egypt a support based client with very rare PRE-pay and good terms in exchange for a modest royalty. He was paying me on time then suddenly Wasseem stopped responding to me from pay day till now while his client admitted she had spoken to him that day proving his blatent and deliberate avoidance. She then ignored me. I would not work with such a people who would spoil their name over a small amount of money. They were given clear warning and plenty of time to respond before this post. And now it can never be removed. Very foolish indeed.

    Anitvirus 2009 - Pandora Software - Meyrocorp I bought the antivirus 2009 to protect my computer from the irus and all i got was a fraude. I trusted the company and now I do not trust any company. I was lied and taking advantage of. Internet
    I was taking advantage of when I signed up to get and Antivirus 2009 via internet. After paying the Pandora Software, thesystem only worked the first month. After that I tried to contact  them via phone but all I got was a voice mail.      I left several messages and never got a call back. It was not until today that I looked for the registration information and asked my daughter to check on it that we notice that I was ripoff. How companies like this exist and they get away taking advantage of people? I was ripoff by Antivirus 2009, Pandora. I was taking advantage of and I would like for them to be caught so they could pay for what they did.

    Pandora-Software Antivirus 2009 Virus attacked my computer, antivirus 2009 was on my google page saying it would clear the virus, paid the amount and did nothing to my computer New York New York
    I was on my computer one day (10/19/08) Whenever I tried going to a website where I have visited many times before, it kept switching me to a different website. After trying many many times I almost gave up. I went to google and underneath the logo it said something about Antivirus 2009. I ignored it once, because I wanted to figure out whatever was attacking my computer. I got other pop ups saying I needed to get some sort of anti viral program for my computer. I pressed scan to scan my computer for any viruses, it scanned my computer and it said I needed to purchase Antivirus 2009 to get rid of those viruses. Many many pop ups kept coming and coming, and so I went back to google to see if the Antivirus 2009 program ad was underneath the logo. I thought that the Antivirus 2009 was a legitimate program because it was supposedly sponsored by google. I purchased the program with my debit master card, and the virus went away. Thinking that I solved the program. No where on my computer could i find the Antivirus 2009 program, and I got worried. But since the virus was gone, i figured it worked out just fine. I told my dad about what I did, because he was having the same problem on his part of the computer. A couple weeks later, the same thing happened, and that is when I figured out that something was wrong, and that I might have got jipped the 49.95 Antivirus 2009 program, and 1.50 activation fee later when I looked at my bank statement the 1.50 was actually $1.48 foreign processing fee. What is that? I was thinking to myself. So i figured I lost that $50+ until I found this website and thought maybe I have the chance to get these people in trouble for putting viruses on peoples computer and making them pay the money to supposedly get the fake virus off. This isnt the first time I have heard about this. After this happened to me, it happened to one of my family members, they did not purchase the program though. Monica Oregon City, OregonU.S.A.

    Meycorp --- Pandora Software,Meycorp AntiVirus 2009 --Computer starts acting weird, program offers to delete them for 49.95! the program deletes from your computer after payment goes through your account. Internet
    I got a pop up for antivirus 2009 asking if i wanted to scan my computer. I said yes, and something installed... every day i got on... it said it found more threats. I ignored it for a while and my computer started beeping, getting a blue screen, and shutting off!! So I figured it was trying to crash and payed the 49.95 so the program would remove the viruses or whatever. all the transaction says this... CHECK CRD PURCHASE 11/16 33622746058 (and a bunch more numbers...) I can't find them anywhere online. They don't exist!! NOW a couple days after the payment cleared through my account... the icon on the desktop is gone!! I can't find it anywhere in my computer and I ran a scan with my old antivirus and it's finding a bunch of viruses... i think i just paid 50$ to mess up my system... ughhh!! I hate whoever is doing this. Don't let it happen to you. If it has, please let me know how you're dealing with it. Idk what to do.... Winglesshalo Monterey, CaliforniaU.S.A.

    Pandora Bay Selling fake Pandora jewelry Internet
    Pandora Bay is claiming they are a certified online retailer of Pandora jewelry. The jewelry they are selling is not real Pandora. As soon as I found out they were fake I called my bank and reported them. My bank reversed the payment and blocked them from getting any money now and in the future. Pandora Bay sent the products anyway and are now harassing me for the money. I have repeatedly ask them for their address so that I can send them back but they are refusing to give it to me. They are continuing to harass and threaten me if I don't pay them. They can have their fake products back.

    Pandora Software invaded computer with a bogus security issue program Nationwide
    Pandora invaded my computer 12-7-08 - I mistakenly down loaded their site believing my computer was having a security problem - sent via charge card $51.45 - then discovered their system was bogus - their e-mail address was bogus - their service was bogus. Their program wrecked havoc with my computer until I was able to perform a System Restore. Contacted my bank but they inform me my money is gone. Am filing a police report tomorrow re this internet fraud. This site should be completely shut down - all they do is steal your money! Ell Westbrook, ConnecticutU.S.A.

    Pandora Pandora charms, Pandora Jewelery Complete Joke-No communication, NO customer service, No satisfaction, No refund........ Copenhagen, Denmark Nationwide
    My wife ordered a PANDORA charm for our daughter as a Christmas gift.  The order was placed in mid to late November and we paid $10.00 for shipping (of a tiny little charm-ripoff!) to make sure we had it here my Christmas.  We ordered picked out the design we thought she would like and paid for it all up front just under $50.00.  The charm never came, the order never showed updated and shipped on their site....nothing. We sent email after email asking for a tracking number or an update-nothing. We called and left messages......nothing.  Finally 1 day before we celebrate Christmas, a box shows up......from Pandora......its not only the wrong charm, but it is defective! Nothing close to what we ordered. Still, no answer, no response and no refund from this joke of a company.  Don't waste your time or money folks, this place is a joke!

    Blue heron 621 Gull Reef Cynthia Fraula-Hahn, Susan Herrick Dirty condo Internet
    Condo received a negative report on vrbo, and vaction rental after we booked. I emailed to find out what was going on. The property manger assured me that it was clean and it would be clean upon our arrival but to call the cleaning company if it was not clean. After that other views from the past appeared. Look at the dates. Upon arrival the furniture was so dirty that blankets had to be put over them in order to use. Dust was thick all over. Vents were moldy and dirty. All area codos were booked and I did not call the cleaning company because they had not cleaned after I had called weeks before my arrival it just did not seem feasible to waste my vacation time telling the cleaning lady how to clean (obvisouly my mistake). I did take pictures and sent to property manager, Susan, and owner Cynthia. The property manager called me a semi-nut but the owner was very apoligetic and said she was shocked to read and see the pictures. That she had no idea. She then set an email stating that she would take care of all the problems with the condo but she was not legally required to do anything for me! So we were stuck in a nasty condo. The view is not worth dealing with the property manager or the nasty environment. Go with now two dirty reviews and stay away!
