Probably the time I misstepped and hurt my ankle. Nothing was broke but it still took six months to return to normal.

All I remember right now is when I fell off a ladder twice. In both cases, you are introduced to overwhelming feelings of helplessness presented in a surreal way. I remember wondering how it would all end on the way down

Dropped the front door key and it slid between the decking...and gone.

Even when I listed 'hazardous' properties, no accidents occurred....unless you count the time the 'investor' looking at a untidy foreclosure opened the refrigerator. Six wraps of duct tape stopped a recurrence.

Now, when it comes to murders, assaults and criminal misuse, well that is a different story. The 'family plan' attached to the refrigerator offered by a local bails-bondman should have been a clue.

Just reading your story made me shiver, Nathan.  Never any "accidents" but the tenant turned the heat down when they went away for the holidays and the pipes froze and burst... flooded the entire 4-plex.  A tenant from the 4-plex across the parking lot called me when they saw water coming out the upstairs windows.   Big bucks for the insurance company to relocate tenants and renovate that building.

A deceased young man. My listing was partially vacant, and one of the sons would drop by once in a while and sleep over when really tired because of distance to work. One day, checking on the property, I found a young man, but not the son, a friend of the son, deceased from an apparent drug overdose.
