My friend Mark has gotten himself into a world of bother over a tongue in cheek job advert he ran in Hawick. He was looking for a part-time manager with "the guts to kick someone between the legs as we evict them and their two-year-old child onto the street." -ouch!
Borders Council have slammed it as "despicable."
There are two sides to every story, and before you pass judgment, please check out Mark's blog called appropriately enough, www.twotalk.net for his take on the events.
They say there's no such thing as bad publicity. I hope it's true in this case. It's certainly raised the profile of Caduceus Investments Ltd. And maybe the reputation of being a hardball will help in his line of business. He'll probably get his rents paid on time.
I've been meaning to tell you about his blog for some time, and this seems to be the perfect opportunity. It's quite an entertaining insight into how a property company operates. And now Mark has been crowned the Last of the Red Hot Capitalist Landlords. (Waxed moustache and top hat optional).
PS. The part-time manager's post has been filled. Sorry, if you fancied a bit of nut kicking.
