Allison Read: October 17, 2016 Letter

Since I have started learning about Narcissistic Abuse, I have been re-reading the many letters and documents I received from these Adult Tenant Bullies to help me.  This is another letter I re-read and saw so much more in there than I did then. If you take your time and read slowly, you can see the insults and gaslighting. It it total emotional manipulation, trying to make me feel responsible for their personal comfort! The nuances of this letter can’t be missed anymore!

Writing out these things, and what I remember how I felt at the time, even now, is helping me release my anger over it and it is what I need to do to finally get past it all!

I have never seen a letter written by a tenant like this, it is very disrespectful and makes Allison Read sound so arrogant. This letter was submitted to Landlord and Tenant Board for the hearing held Sept 26, 2017, as it shows their refusals of access, very openly, yet, Allison & Kory Read claim it was taken out of context. How?

I was happy to ignore these tenants during the year that followed and pretended they didn’t exist. I knew as long as they were still living there, there was a chance, but I ignored it and moved on and did my job. When I got the Maintenance request in Aug 2017, I was prepared and didn’t care how long it took to get done, I was giving them 48 hours notice of entry, for everything, and even more if I could.

I was determined to not give them any more things to complain over. Every time I had to deal with these tenants, I became anxious and distrustful, as their actions and words affected me that way. I allowed these Adult Tenant Bullies to get to me. Over time, their constant insults, emotional manipulations, and suspicions, got to my psyche and it took forever to get it all out of my head. For so long, their words of condemnation, was like a rollercoaster, going round and round, with the words on repeat. I don’t get that anymore, thankfully! Even my anger don’t stick around like it use too!

Over time, I came to see it didn’t matter what I did, how many rules to the T I followed, they would still complain over something. I do hate their use of “it appears” in their documents, as you know what follows is their own suspicions, not facts they can prove. Kory & Allison Read are very opinionated people!

I am forwarding this email to inform you that I will not be allowing you access to my unit ( 303 ) on October 18, 2016 as you have request to once again look at replacing the window that you have not been able to fix since I first requested it in or about September 2015.

Once again you set the time and the date for your convince, and once again you failed to show up as scheduled.

They were refusing access. How can it be out of context? Of course, she would make it sound like I was responsible for contractors not showing up. That sentence is their way of blaming me for a contractor’s child getting sick and having to reschedule an appt.

In the future I will inform you when I will be able to allow you access to my unit regarding the window. As this is not an emergency issue, there is certainly no sense of urgency that would require it to be done immediately which would inconvenience me and family..

This sentence, and others like it in others letters and emails, is why they were evicted. Allison Read is clearly telling you here that the window repairs are not as important to her as “inconveniencing” her and her family over them. Yet, a year later in the hearing, she claims it was an emergency and how upset she is it didn’t get done?

That is what this letter is all about really, Allison Read is being a Bully and tell the property owners how it will be, according to them.

They claim that the building staff are certified Fire Safety Inspectors so there was no need for a Fire Safety company to check them again. Yet, once they did get into this unit, they found the smoke detector, disconnected? No wonder they didn’t want anyone to check, they knew it would be found. No one understands how dangerous this could be!

They did have other smoke detectors in the unit, but none of them were hardwired to the building fire safety systems, like the detector they disconnected. I appreciate that if they had a fire, their other alarms will go off, the building alarms will not, as the detector was disconnected. All apartments have smoke detectors that the owners and management maintain and replace as needed. All these detectors are hardwired into the building fire safety systems, if there is a fire in a unit and causes the smoke detector to go off, after a few minutes of smoke, the whole buildings fire alarms will start to notify other tenants there is a fire in the building and they have to evacuate. If a tenant disconnects the smoke detector and there is a fire, the other tenants will not be notified, unless someone physically pulls a fire station in the hallway. 

These smoke detectors are a very important part of a Buildings Fire Safety systems and there are fines that can be levied against tenants for disconnecting them, by the Fire Marshalls. No one cares if they had 20 other smoke detectors around, you don’t disconnect the one that came with the apartment! If you have a issue with it, tell the staff. If not, it is on you as a Tenant.

This was just another excuse for Allison Read to be a Bully!

I have given you access to my unit on 3 separate occasions already within the last month and half, and each time you have made no attempts to try and accommodate myself or my family in regards to the time and dates and if they worked for us or not.

I am too old to play these childish games with you Stella and Louie, and as before, I will not play them with you. If anyone wants access to my unit for the bathroom, in which you started and did not finish since I first moved in back in June 2015. I will except a few dates to choose from, and I will choose from these same dates and times to let you know what works for me and my family.

This is Kory & Allison Read’s issue, Control. They sound like they were doing the owners a favor, for allowing what they have. They didn’t OWN that apartment, they rented it.  They also make it sound here that I am responsible to ensure that they are accommodated over when entry would be needed, which goes against everything I was trained in for the Residential Tenancies Act.

After I read this letter, I even called the LTB to double check to see if the rules had changed that much and I didn’t know, and the man laughed when I read that part out to him. There is no requirement in the RTA stating that I had to accommodate these tenants like they expect here. I was not going to force myself do as they wanted, just to keep the peace and keep them off my back. 

Allison & Kory Read did expect me to do the things here that they demand. as they felt entitled to it. It didn’t matter to them that I wasn’t required to do any of this for them, they still expected it and if not, letters like this, was their response.

Just more evidence, written by these Bullies, showing how Narcissistic they are!

It also again appears to me that you are also deliberately screwing up dates in hopes of again trying to get into my unit alone with someone being there. I am not sure what your fascination is with getting into my unit unattended?

What are they hiding, that they required to be home all the time? Good thing Kory Read couldn’t keep a job, otherwise they would have expected us to work evenings and weekends for them to get any access to get anything done! They had a dog, that they used as well to their advantage, as no one will enter an apartment with a dog loose and going mad with barking. I wouldn’t and they knew it.

If you are not happy with my decisions, that I have made in this email. You are more than welcome and within your rights to take this matter to landlord tenant board where I will supply all of your documents and evidence of yourself and Louie trying to get me and my family out of the building.

This is a threat and I took it as one. They are saying here that we are welcome to take this matter to the LTB, but if we did, be prepared for their reactions. They were threatening to kick up a stink, if we dared to file with the LTB on them for refusing access.

It is just what they did too, and had a hearing scheduled for Oct 31, 2017, but dismissed it. They thought that they would do better with Divisional Court, until they learned they couldn’t get at me that way, and went to HRTO instead.

When I read this letter now today, I see the threats expressed within. I also see the emotional manipulation, implying I am responsible for their personal comfort and convenience. 

Today you once again failed to follow up with your contracts to ensure that everything is in place for today. As my partner was a super attendant for many years, He has informed me that he has NEVER had ANY contractors or pest control cancel out on him on the same day they were to arrive. And yet conveniently it has happened to me and my family twice within a months’ time at the hands of Stella and Louie.

Allison Read states that her husband, Kory Read, was a “super attendant for many years” and never had a contractor cancel an appt. I doubt very much if Kory Read ever worked as building staff, otherwise he would know the difference. If Kory Read worked in rentals at all, he would know he wasn’t allowed to do what he did!

Yes, I can control contractors and I cancel appts deliberately, just to piss these tenants off? Why would I put myself thru that on purpose? This letter is idiotic as far as I am concerned and I thought the same at the time. Once again, I am made out to be this powerful woman, who can control other people and situations!

Obviously you are not capable of, or just don’t care about what myself and family have planned for the week enough to following up with contractors and informing me in a properly, professional or even in a reasonable manner of any “sudden” changes. So from this date forward we will work together to ensure that things are done properly and respectfully of everyone schedules and rights.

Pure emotional manipulation! In all honesty, no, I didn’t care about what herself and family have planned for the week, it isn’t my job to care what tenants do in their personal lives and I didn’t need to do so. When I read this last paragraph for the first time, my reaction was emotional, as they intended, but a Tenants personal plans are no concern to me and I really don’t need to care either. By trying to place this responsibility onto me, Kory & Allison Read are projecting!

It is ALWAYS someone else’s responsibility, never their own!

This entitlement, like I have nothing better to do in my job than pay attention to them and their lives and keep track of their personal schedules so I can arrange repairs around it, is also why they were evicted, Tenants can’t demand these things in a rental building! “Sudden changes” are just that, sudden, and not my problem if Allison Read didn’t like how I informed her. I don’t need to answer to these tenants on how I deliver information to them! Besides, no matter how I notified them, they complained about it anyway!

No matter what I did, or didn’t do, Allison & Kory Read would find something to complain about! I was not there to “respect” their personal lives and plans they make! They didn’t pay my salary, nor did have any influence over how I did things required of me. They had no authority, period, over me and how I did my job.

This letter below, show me so much about the character of the writers. The Narcissistic traits I see of entitlement, personal judgements, emotional manipulations, and so many demands and outright suspicions they express here. A year later, when we did file for the eviction based once again on refusing access, this letter with the ones from 2017, were included so the LTB Adjudicator could see the history. It worked. Kory Read standing there and telling the Adjudicator how it was to be, also helped!

Kory & Allison Read evicted themselves and then turn around and blame everyone else, claiming we made them do it. Such total lack of accountability I ever saw, even giving away the rights to ensure their personal comfort being met over entry, for whatever reason! 

I deliberately gave them 48 hours notice that time on Aug 24, 2017, and they still denied entry, so the LTB saw that no matter what I did, they would refuse to allow it and would use it as an excuse to thrown more verbal abuse at me. They claimed I didn’t give proper notice, so I refused to allow them to make that claim anymore and deliberately gave them more time, to see what they would do. As I thought, they still denied entry, so the claiming not getting proper notice, was an excuse like everything else.

When I read this letter for the first time, it did cause a lot of emotional reactions, as they claim I am responsible for these Adult Tenants personal comfort while they lived in the property, and it  was ridiculous. The way they write, they “victimize” themselves and imply it was someone else’s responsibility to protect them and their rights, as she states So from this date forward we will work together to ensure that things are done properly and respectfully of everyone schedules and rights. 

In reality, this letter is telling me that from this date forward, you will do as I say, otherwise you are welcome to file with the LTB but if you do, be prepared for what I will do as a result. 

This letter is a THREAT and I took it as one.

Their whole smear campaign is a result of me not accepting their abuse of me and allowing them to dictate to me on how I did my job. You can’t help but see it in their actions. I didn’t do as they wanted, so they are seeking their retribution by smearing my name on the internet.

I also have no doubts anymore that I will prevail either. I have up and down days, but they are fewer than before and the hopelessness is gone. I have a lot of Hope these days and know I will be okay. Whenever I doubt myself, I just think of how far I have come already, and I know I can keep going. The hardest part, is over. I have reconnected with myself and my own emotions and have rebuilt my self-esteem and confidence in myself, and what I can do.

When I feel I am getting overwhelmed, I just go sit in my backyard, among nature, and absorb the tranquility I find there, and it eases me.

I went out yesterday, had some errands to run, and as I wasn’t going far, I took the bus. I like taking the bus these days, as I meet new people every time! This is my life now, I have become very social, and talk to other people all the time. I strike up conversations with everyone I see these days and it feels AMAZING! I have plans made for the weekend!

I was downtown yesterday, checked out the outside patios set up for the Downtown Pedestrian Mall they do every summer here the past couple of years and saw one made almost completely out of driftwood! It was very cool to look at! I even sat on the waterfront for awhile and watched the boats. There were quite a few, it was hard to see the narrows, but I love the smell of the salty, fishy, air! I had a great afternoon on the Waterfront, speaking to random people, even met a couple from Austria who are tourists here and helped a newcomer find the bus she needed.

I feel very safe here, as I know I am. I have been living here now almost 2 years and no one bothers me over this situation, it is only within myself that it still exists.

It is only within me that all this is still a problem, everyone else has moved on with their lives and it don’t affect them, not even my hubby. The only person who was psychologically affected so badly, was me, and it is I who is responsible to get over it and move on with my life. I will do what I need to do, to be able to reach that point and move on and ignore them, completely.

My fear of doing that, is that if I ignore them, they will continue abusing my name online by committing more fraud with stellareddy.com that I already caught them doing. So I will monitor for my name, every single day, until these domains are no longer registered for use!

I am forwarding this email to inform you that I will not be allowing you access to my unit ( 303 ) on October 18, 2016 as you have request to once again look at replacing the window that you have not been able to fix since I first requested it in or about September 2015.

In regards to the fire inspection dated for October 19, 2016.

The previous super attendants ( Angie and Chris) have already performed this same fire inspection ( smoke detectors ) in or about June of 2016 changing the batteries. There is no absolutely no need for a second inspection in my unit within a 4 month time period.

I have given you access to my unit on 3 separate occasions already within the last month and half, and each time you have made no attempts to try and accommodate myself or my family in regards to the time and dates and if they worked for us or not.

Let us also not forget that you actually serve me an N5 form that you knew was deliberately false and misleading in an attempt to again bully/scare me into bowing down to your wants and needs.
It is also once again obvious that you are deliberately trying to in convince/bait myself and my family into getting a negative response in an attempt to try and build a case against me so you can try and have us removed through the court system like you did with unit #302.

It also again appears to me that you are also deliberately screwing up dates in hopes of again trying to get into my unit alone with someone being there. I am not sure what your fascination is with getting into my unit unattended?

If you are not happy with my decisions, that I have made in this email. You are more than welcome and within your rights to take this matter to landlord tenant board where I will supply all of your documents and evidence of yourself and Louie trying to get me and my family out of the building.

I am too old to play these childish games with you Stella and Louie, and as before, I will not play them with you.
