New Santa Ana Rule: Please Do Not Defecate In The Elevator

An Irvine, California-based property management company was forced last week to remind tenants in a Santa Ana housing complex about common rules of decency. In a letter mailed to each unit, the manager urged tenants to "please be considerate" by using trash cans for trash, keeping noise down at night and monitoring unruly, screaming children playing soccer in the building's concrete courtyard. But that was not what caught our attention. The manager's final request was, no joke, "And please do not defecate in the elevator." He went on to threaten that further elevator defecating would require installation of surveillance cameras to catch the public poopers.
