Another Episode Of Stupid North Minneapolis Home Repairs! (Today, We Visit Exotic Venice, Where Venetian Blinds Were Invented!)
Photos By John Hoff
Here are some pictures I took in North Minneapolis of a "stupid property repair," these involving venetian blinds...
In the top photo, the brackets for the blind were already in place, but along comes Mr. Slumlord...well, his name was almost certainly Kevin T. Freeman...and he has a blind which is bigger than the brackets. What does he do? He just kind of jams one side of the blind into the bracket.
Then, perhaps, he muttered something like, "Good enough for renters."
In the bottom photo--which, yeah, I know the image is crap--he didn't bother with brackets at all...just screwed the blind directly to the window frame.
Bad slumlord. BAD BAD BAD!!!!!!!
Did all those generations of Venetian citizens toil away pushing boats through the streets, waiting for one of their own to invent the clever venetian blind...just so you, Kevin T. Freeman, could do...THIS?!!
