Colour me baffled!

I spoke with the Property Manager again, and asked about the meeting next week. He mentioned it might be easier to have the meeting without the volunteers or the Property Managers involved.

We had been talking a while about complaints, and how to resolve them, when he mentioned that they wanted to stop volunteers from bringing cats into the estate. I told him that none of the volunteers I knew wanted to do that - they did not want to have to feed more cats, sterilise more cats and spend more time and money. They just wanted to manage the ones already there. He was quite pleased about that.

After 15 minutes of this, he said that if there were any sterilised cats caught by accident, he did not see why they even needed to be sent to the AVA for his own zone, and that he would release it back to the volunteer caregivers directly. At this point, I said that this was exactly what we were asking for! He said in this case that that was great as he did not see this as being unacceptable to the town council at all.

Now I'm left wondering what just happened here - we've been meeting over the last few times to discuss what exactly? And what did the Difficult Property Manager say? I sent an email to clarify what the Difficult Property Manager had said to me.

Is a difficult property manager a pathological liar? That will surely mean the sack!

that's good news !

But first of all the difficult property manager must be able to follow instruction from top managment...

If she still insisted on doing things in her own way then things will be back to square one...

I don't think they really sack poor performers in the garmen service.

My SO who used to be in garmen svc donkey years ago, thinks that sometimes the lower ranks are not cooperative due to internal politics, or as a way to shake the higher ranks out of their stupor. :-S
