The following is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to actual people or events is purely coincidental and unintentional, and hopefully amusing.

Apples and Pears Property Management is a hardworking, mid-sized budget property management service with buildings all over the north side of Chicago. We're grateful that they've chosen to occasionally share their phone logs with us so we can see what life is like on the receiving end of maintenance requests from hundreds of renters!

December has brought some joyful noise to the Apples and Pears Portfolio. Let's see how their tenants are coping with holiday fever!
