Yeah fuck that lady who owned the locker.
Her people are starving and she's hiding rolexes and 14K bottles of swill in storage ?
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, of that there is no doubt (we won't get into how and why that came to pass). There are still wealthy and privileged Haitians on teh island as well as abroad and it seems this dude is one of them


Haiti is one of the most corrupt countries in the world probably want her stuff to begin with .
Did you even read the article? He's a dude, a Sorbonne educated banker/lawyer and was Haiti's former Consul General of Haiti in Montreal. It seems he was reassigned to the US and then to Geneva for a position at the UN so he had put his things in storage while moving to a different continent. This guy wasn't the everyday run of the mill dude in any country so I dunno why your weird attitude towards him.


Also to add,she was so well off apparently she "forgot" she even had all this stuff .that's why it got auctioned off.
Now I don't know about you but if I had that kind of swag in my locker that's something in would keep on top of.
And why was it even in a locker ...hmmmmmm
Looks like the storage company pulled a fast one on him. That's what insurance is for I guess

Yeah I read it ,I conflated the dude who owned it with the lady that bought it because I was reading it while thrifting and talking someone .
Okay I'll give you that .
And yeah just because he's fucking Sorbonne educated blah blah doesn't mean shit. where do you think that money came from,that fucking country is in shambles .you steal and then invest,but you steal first and if you don't believe that you are naive with a capital N .listen you will not convince me that this guy or his family didn't scam their way into a fortune one way or another ,and if you think otherwise I got a bridge to sell you.
BUT you are entitled to your opinion ,as am I.
Now Im gonna tell you where my opinion was shaped .I was born in 1974 in Poland ,while it was still communist .
So Iam very well versed in privileged cunts getting rich while in government positions while the rest of the people sufferered.
So my "weird opinion " is my REAL world experience ,I lived it.
I saw tanks during martial law in the streets in 1981 ,what did you see.
Your neighbour on your block and his Renault?
Dude please .
As far as him getting shafted ,no lol.
I'm friendly with the people that run my storage facility ,"100 percent of the time the blame is on the management "while they fuck up and scramble to get their shit back because of their irresponsibility.
I'm not a cynic ,I'm just a realist .
But again you are entitled to your opinion .

Apologies for the horribly staged pics, haha. But check out this bad ass drop leafff wheeled bar cart by Heritagggge. Obviously both sides have the drop leaf option but I didn’t have time/space to do a proper staging.
I kind of already know the answer to this, but did people just become giants in the past 50 years? I feel like a lot of this true vintage stuff is 1/2 or 3/4 sized of what the modern day offerings are/would be. This thing is pretty small. My 3 yo daughter was asking if it was for her to put her dolls in, haha.
