Beer Can Tenant! Left $800 in Cans…

By admin

The property manager was surprised to find that his tenant of eight years had left a few things behind…   Actually he left 70,000 empty Coors Lite Cans all throughout the rental.  Imagine wading through 4 feet of beer cans just to get around the rental unit!

Cans piled high!

Property manager Ryan Froerer said he couldn’t even open the front door, it was blocked with beer cans from inside.  Although, the Ogden Utah renter appeared to be the best renter; rent was always paid on-time and he never complained, he apparently had a drinking problem and was a pack rat.

The cans were cleaned up and recycled for a total of $800, hopefully enough to cover the cleaning cost!  Its estimated the the renter spent $540 dollars a month on beer for a grand total of $51,800 during his 8 year rent period.

Though he once stacked beer boxes to the ceiling, and covered his furniture with his spent aluminum friend; this renter has now given up on drinking altogether.

WOW! That sounds like a inflated story, if it weren’t for the pictures I wouldn’t believe it at all. I hope this never happens to me! Although, it would be a great story for the grandkids… maybe?!
