The maintenance guy can be a real thorn in my side. I have talked to the owners in the past. He actually threatened to quit at a meeting. I was not out there but was in my office with the door closed so I could hear somewhat. I guess he walked out and she (owner) came out and got him and they got things worked out. He is the first maintenance guy since I have been here that has really gotten anything done. But you are right, I can't trust him. This is where a major issue with me comes in. I do not do well when I am being yelled at all the time. I don't think he talks to my bosses. I asked her (owner) one time if he said anything about me and she said no, he would not do that. I am like family to the owners. They have kinda of adopted me. I think he tries to get and keep me on his side. He is a contract employee so technically, he has more to worry about job wise than I do. He says I worry too much and make everything a crisis. The problem is, I don't know much about the things he does so when he explains something to me, I do not know if he is telling the truth or not. I know how to do my job, although he does like to tell me how to do it sometimes. I have taken a new practice in when ever I do an entry inspection with a new tenant, I am now taking pics. I do it because as much as I would like to, I do not remember everything I see so when a tenant moves out, I may or may not remember if a spot was there when they moved in. The maintenance guy asked me what I was doing and I told him. I don't think he understands.
As far as the keys go, I do not know what was given to him although I know he has masters. I just wish there was a way I could find out what was really going on. He is not going to tell me.
Thanks for listening and your support!
