Sometimes the details matter...

...like making sure you have the right address...

(AP) DENTON, Texas (AP) - A woman was trying to figure out what to do after a demolition crew wrongly tore down most of her house, instead of one across the street. Francis Howard told the Denton Record-Chronicle that "I don't have the words to say" about what happened to her family's longtime home. The 69-year-old woman, who lives with her son in Frisco, said Monday that the family had resided in the Denton home for 47 years.

Much of the house was demolished April 21.

City records show the house that was supposed to be demolished was ordered in January to be repaired or torn down, due to unkept lawns, outside storage, junked vehicles and failure to secure the structure.

The landlord of the property that was to have been demolished declined comment.

Gee thanks Knapp. Bad enough to see people spin things that silly in the thread where it is being discussed, but to see the same BS spread to other threads? Lovely.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

As the years go by your sense of humor gets smaller and smaller. That wasn't a dig at you, it was just a joke. Haha.

Smell the roses a little, Madison. It's not that bad.

I apologize.

I'm just annoyed by that whole other discussion.

<--- Reminds self that this is the internet, where any idiot with a cell phone can be a troll, be worthless, and just be the idiot they are, so allowing them to annoy me is just plain stupid on my part.


That's no excuse of course, I'm the idiot that allowed the other thread to annoy me, so I'm sorry for snapping at you Knapp. ;-D
