During the height of the recent housing bubble an acquaintance of mine accepted an offer of employment at a solar panel manufacturing company. Ms. Lee Fortune purchased a $213,000 condominium near her new employer. Her new home at Triskaideka Lane was to be used as a residence as well as an investment property.
Unfortunate Lee was robbed of her purse and cell phone this morning as she left her residence now valued at $96,000. Ms. Fortune was on her way to work where she would find that her employer had laid her off.
