You know how sometimes you figure the person you are negotiating with will realize that you are dead serious about your position? And, you know how sometimes they don't seem to be bending to your will but you are sure it is only a matter of time? Well, I believed my landlord would recognize that the construction noise and vibration (now, two sites within 200'....the 20 story building going up and the re-facading of the building across the street-----from which bricks fell off the building and through the roof of its next door neighbor) entitled me to pay very little rent. After all, how much rent would you pay to set up an office in the mouth of a dental patient having a cavity drilled?

My bluff to move out turned into our moving out of the office. Really, it wasn't a bluff...but, I was willing to talk. Now, we are gone (or, we will be by 11:59 tonight). I will not miss the construction noise (whistles, jackhammers, saws, drills....though I will miss the 20 story high tower cranes). I will not miss the lack of parking, the arguments over spaces in our buildings lot, the traffic congestion, the odd elevator, the blasting music from the spin-cycle place downstairs, the frequent closing of Fern St.

I intend to be un-office challenged within the next 30 days. In the meantime, I remain available for or email and we'll figure it out.
