Whore-der, Part 3, & Letters from a Storage Locker #9: HOTmail

So, where we last left off we had cleaned out the storage unit (Captain Trashbag conveniently threw everything into boxes and bins to get out of there), out of the facility, and moved it all to the warehouse.  There really wasn't that much left, but the bins and boxes that were left were very labor intensive.  Mainly filled with letters, paper, cards, that sort of thing.  Because of gift cards, money, not to mention my affection for letters, I don't like to just throw that stuff away-- you have to be thorough... but it takes time.  When you only have 24-48 hours to clear out a storage unit, time is not a luxury.  So, we moved it.

Trisha and I did some digging at her house late one night  (she lives right around the corner from the warehouse, so it's super convenient) complete with some pizza and the LSU game, that's where we were able to compile the letters you'll see below...

and then there were the rest of the bins and boxes we had to go through at the warehouse:

As always (at least with THIS unit), be warned that there is extreme adult material here:

At the warehouse, the very first thing we found, was porn.   Click here to see it.


 A letter (there are a BUNCH of these---  just fast forward through this blog to the second half):

A random plastic bag, yielded:
 Random things, including a belt, and a TON of condoms.

Another filled make-up case (this has to be the 7th one).  Again, it makes me cry to throw it away, but I don't want to give anyone herpes.

THIS, I'll be keeping for myself.  Little stick on nail templates so you can paint designs on yo' nails.   Oh, and there's a Fleur de Lis.   ROCK ON.

Oh lord... here's something for Brian, if he wants it.   PENIS PUMP!  Didn't want you to feel left out, Bri ;)

Another bag of randomness:  (See all the additonal condoms?  I wish we would have counted, we would have had probably close to 500)

Finally something of interest.  Probably a "John"'s (it had some initials in it not hers, and some business cards inside also not hers),  but it's sterling silver!   At $34 an ounce for silver (Sterling is 92.5% silver, so a little less than that but still)--- that's not too shabby.  This thing is heavy, too!

A container of quarters:

Trish holds an excellent Rasta blanket:

Mo' money, just of the foreign variety:   (We have SO much foreign currency now, but hardly enough of any one thing to exchange it!)

Ugh.  A Jeremy Shockey jersey.  I love the boys in black and gold (even the former ones) but what he did to us at the Saints/Panthers game was pretty reprehensible.  It's not Falcons or Cowboys though, so I'll permit us to keep and sell this one :)

A list of how much money she makes a night. $1200 in 7 days is not too shabby!

I found about 4 of these... each time was the same.  Trying to figure out how to spell "glamorous" -- don't you listen to the Fergie song?

A bank envelope filled with condoms!   (She must have stole the bank envelopes from the ATM, there were a TON of them and they all had different random things in them)

A rubber glove filled with keys!  Makes perfect sense!

A well packed box of electronics... the first actual well-packed box that actually makes sense!  (Note about this:   The front of the unit was all crazy miscellaneous random things in boxes that claimed they were something else from the outside.  They were unorganized, disheveled, and full of crap. The back of the unit was all well packed boxes that contained all of one thing, like a normal person might do if they were packing up their home:  "shoes",  "electronics", etc.   It also looks like they were moved from the other storage facility that she defaulted on.  The only thing that I can think is that she packed the older boxes for the first facility before she had the drug problem-- and after she moved the stuff to this facility she kept adding additional boxes when high-- that's why there was such a difference from front to back.  You really can see not only a lot about someone's life, but also the progression of someone's life from doing this.)

 Another well-packed box... Stripper clothes!  If you're friends with us on Facebook you already know that Trish and I had a field day trying stuff on!  Here are some pictures from our stripper fashion show:







You can't see because of the lighting, but this is a naughty nurse outfit.  It actually says on the front "a kiss will make you feel better"


Brian looks like a creepy lurker in this photo!

And of course, more porn.  Click here to see this one  (they are all lesbian titles).

And... bunk beds. RANDOM.  I'm not sure if there was a red set AND a wooden set, but the red ladder still remains.  The wooden set has all of the pieces (we think).  But it is SUPER nice, solid wood.  If anyone is interested in buying it, please let us know before we sell it at garage sale this weekend.

There was also an antique looking chair:

Another picture of the chair.  I was too lazy at this point (after loading and unloading and reloading the van with other stuff), I didn't feel like taking the clothes out of it :)

In a 5 gallon tote, this is what ended up being good:   Part of a shoe, a box of crystal hairpins, some darts, and a Burberry wallet.  Oh, also notice the meth pipe & pipe cleaner.  But we threw that away, of course.  It just goes to show, you never know what's going to be good or bad in any unit.  What are the odds that a drug pipe and a Burberry wallet would be together? Insanity.

This list (of which I was very careful not to picture complete phone #s), is a page of her list of "Johns" - I know that because they are marked with "Jon"  next to their names!   I also enjoy what Brad's partner is listed as.

More porn:


A traffic ticket.  But on further inspection, it's not a traffic ticket at all (shows what *I* know!).  It's actually a ticket that our lady received for "relative to theft"


The rest of these are letters.  We'd post them like we normally do, typed out as "Letters to Storage Lockers" but there are so many of them.  You also have to see them in their original handwriting because many are written in a cracked out kind of way.  Some have pretty drawings.  Some are just insane.  There are also some pictures at the bottom which I promise you will want to see.  This girl wrote all over EVERYTHING.  Her friends wrote all over everything.  They wrote things that were important (love letters, eviction letters, I'm mad at you because you sold my cat for drugs letters),  they wrote things that were seemingly unimportant (lyrics to songs, the word glamorous over and over), they wrote Bible verses, they wrote strange instructions.  They wrote EVERYTHING.   This is only 1/10th of the paper in the locker.  We may publish some more soon as letters... we may do another post in the near future on a slow day.  But, the best ones are here, so enjoy!


This one is basically her friend / ex-lover to get out of the apartment.  I especially like the part where she provided a <   >  for her to put her "things in" -- not sure how literally we're supposed to take THAT!


An address to write to a friend in jail-- and specific instructions to not be "incriminating":

Paperwork from a trial where someone she knew was arrested for shipping Meth via Fed Ex.  DEA caught him!

Her list of what the customers paid in a night, and what she got to keep from each customer:

A letter from her boyfriend in prison.  He's written her a poem and colored it with skittles so it smells like candy-- it also glows when you hold it up to the light.  I gave this picture to Trisha's daughter because she thought it was cool.  I'm super glad I did, because when I found this letter several days later, we were able to go back and look at the drawing.  It actually DOES smell like skittles and it really DOES glow when you put it up to the light.  Once I get a picture from her of it, we'll post it on the Facebook page.




 I LOVE how every single time we have a person who's incarcerated they always write letters to their "boo"  and demand money.    They ALWAYS say "if you loved me, you'd send money!"   --  I SO wish someone would write them back and say "if you loved me you wouldn't have done ___ and ended up in jail and then sent me a pathetic request for money!"

Another instruction in the PS to hold the picture up to the light.


 Some very colorful randomness.

A list of strip clubs and escort services that she wanted to apply at:

Another love letter of sorts:

Page 2:

 More randomness:


After the phrases "Fiya connection"  and "a real <3 Story"  I stopped reading:


I REALLY hope she's talking about a plant, here:


"I wana love you like 4:30 AM"



Lost Bookmarker!  Bad Bad Bad!



 And poetry:



It's finding goop in a shitty situation... of course!



"I need a real teaching job"  - Oh, Lord.  NO YOU DON'T.


Ooh, typed letter.  Classy.    (Let me just say here that there are LOTS of female names that are appearing in this unit-- none of the ones in this one are our girl's name.  I don't know if she used aliases or she had a bunch of lesbian friends as well and ended up with THEIR stuff.. it's a mystery.  Still good letters either way though!)





 #22??   This letter was to TRACY PORTER?!   Shut up!  :)


 If my Bible was THIS pretty, I'd read it all the time!

Here are some pictures of our tenant.  She was really AMAZINGLY beautiful.  She could have been a great actress too-- she clearly could do a variety of different looks, girl next door, sex pot, even naughty librarian :)

Her and presumably a girlfriend:

She captioned the back of photographs:

 And another one:


This is one of the greatest series of pictures we have EVER found.  It's a shame we can't show you the man's face, but we didn't buy HIS locker, so we feel a little bad about outing him.   You need to know THIS about the pictures:
1) They were in some kind of romantic relationship, he wasn't a John, or at least HE thought they were in a relationship
2) He had kind of a shrine set up to her
3)  These were his photos and he wrote on the back of them, captions, which I guess she ended up getting the pictures later.


So they start out with our girl wearing one of her little saucy outfits:

He asks her to take off her heels for a leg photo, which she of course does:

now, the next thing you know... you see him, in ladies clothing, including makeup, earrings, and red fingernail polish--- and he's kissing her feet:




and licking her shoes.  OH MY.



The best part...  (as if that wasn't amazing enough)... is the caption on the back:

  " Me kissing my ex-girl's shoes and feet - she had really pretty feet and legs"

 TELL ME THAT's NOT CREEPY!

This particular guy also had a picture of a picture of them-- ie, there's a picture on his nightstand of the two of them, and he took a picture of THAT, and on the back, he writes:

"Tracey & Me at Chris & Randy's party... We just got back together and made love 2 different times that night"   With an exclamation point AND a heart.  Oh my goodness.



Oh, and here are some of our girls favorite positions-- she had these ALL OVER, but these were marked as her favorites.  There were more but I just pulled the ones out that I thought had the best and funniest names.



A list of the songs she wanted to give the DJ to dance to at the strip club:

This is actually pretty sad-- she had a daughter in her 20s, who had her own child, and I'm assuming their relationship isn't great because the daughter lives in another state.  There were 2 or 3 birthday cards that were sealed and addressed but never sent to her.  So, her mom (our tenant) meant to send cards but never did.  I feel for the daughter.  They were actually very sweet cards, too--  she TRIED--- but trying isn't good enough, especially when it comes to your children. Enough on my commentary, here's the card:

And the back of the card:

Another things to do list... but someone was VERY unhappy with Jenn!

Another letter:


So, that's the end of this one, folks.   Between the bunk bed, the quarters, the foreign currency, the citrine, the dancer clothes and shoes, and the electronics-- we definitely made our money back and then some.  It's very sad, but you can't let it get to you.  I wish this girl the best and I hope she gets her life back together.  I feel bad for taking amusement at some of her... rougher musings and writings-- but that's what you get when you take tons of drugs.  Stay off of drugs, kids!  THIS is total proof!  If only there weren't so much explicit stuff in here we could totally show you!

Until next time...

  1. I think it's horrible that you've exploited this person in this way, but trotting out her personal belongings for public view.

    You're disgraceful.

  2. To Anonymous:

    Way harsh. I feel bad for the tenant, but the choices she made got her where she was. She isn't a victim.

  3. I won't agree or disagree with either of you, because we welcome readers of all kinds no matter WHAT their opinion. But in our defense, I will say that this person had every opportunity to a) not store their stuff b) pay the bill before it went to auction and c) even after the fact, save their stuff, because it was a bid/hold. Even at THIS POINT, they could ask me to remove this blog (or contact the facility and ask for these things back) and we would submit, even though we don't have to. I will also point out that we've gone through every measure possible to not reveal last names, phone numbers, or faces of those who had nothing to do with her not paying her bill. But, feel free to disagree, and keep this discussing moving! We love comments of all kinds.

  4. A couple comments, first the group of tools pictured in the first or second blog about this locker appears to be a set of lock picks though it is hard to tell with them bundled up like that.

    Second, victim or not, choices made, or feeling that you have no choice, the past tenet does deserve some respect and compassion. I was always told that any personel papers and photos should be dropped off with the manager of the unit to hold and return to the tenet, and my understanding of the law is that you are buying the "real" property rather than the personal property.

    As far as her having every opportunity, often the only other opportunity is to just throw her stuff into the trash or store it and hope she would be able to do better before it WAS thrown into the trash. Shit happens, take it from someone who is twice your age and with four times your real life experience, sometimes you reach a point in your life where you feel you only have one option left and it is a shitty one but you do the best you can.

    Yes, she was probably a prostitute and a drug addict but does that make her a person who is not entitled to a little compassion? Since you are from the south I assume you know who Mary Magdalin was since most southerners are raised in a church of one kind or another.

    Your pictures on her costumes and the other real items are fine, It is your pictures of her pictures and personal papers and writings that I have a problem with. If you didn't want to go to the trouble of returning them to the manager then just throw them away, you don't have to make her obvious pain and suffering public.

  5. Just so you know we DO always return personal property-- if you read this blog (and not just this one post) you would know that... occasionally we may take pictures of letters or personal documents before returning them. Sometimes (in this case) we are told by the facility that the tenant has already indicated that they have absolutely no use for the documents/pictures and have stated that they will not come and get them after being called-- in that case we can do what we want with them. Look on the bright side-- maybe this way instead of being gone through by some kids who go through the storage unit dumpster or just plain destroyed, this way, the things MAY actually help SAVE someone else from the same fate-- this lady may serve as an example to all of us that all CAN be forgiven-- just like the Mary Magdalen that you were so interested in mentioning.

    Thanks for reading!

  6. LOL, she hasn't been forgiven, especially by you. I have a feeling that you would have thrown the first stone reguardless because you feel that you are without sin and that she was nothing but a drugged out whore, it is in the title of the blog. Yes, you did take enjoyment from reading and posting her writings which translated into enjoyment in her pain and suffering. Yes, you bought the unit and you have the right to open and read everything that is in it. As I said in my first post what I have a problem with is you unnecessarily making it public by posting pages and pages of them on the internet.

    You have no idea as to when or why she became a drug addict and prostitute just as you have no idea of the relationship she had with her daughter so you have no right to judge her one way or the other. Her daughter may love her as much as she was apparently loved and would have loved to get the birthday cards from her mother. The daughter may not even know where her mother is because her mother is ashambed of her situation and doesn't want her to know.

    The only people reading your blog are people like me who make their living by combing through the wreckage of other people lives. I could tell stories of the suicide or the army sgt. who died in Afghanistan and I ended up with his life in a 10x20 locker and his wife and daughter have little but memories.

    If you had read the letters more carefully, you would have realized that Jon was his name and the addresses and phone numbers were of his family where she could get in touch with them and him. He wasn't a "JOHN".

    As far as saving her or someone else by making her pain public, kind of makes me think of the Spanish Inquisition where they were determinded to save someone's soul even if they had to burn them at the stake to do it.

    1. You are totally right! It's someone named Jon's contacts. We just re-read that today.

  7. .You're totally right, upon re-reading this (today) anonymous is right and it was a reference to someone named Jon's friends and family. We stand corrected. You can totally see how we could get to that assumption, though, right? We think about this former tenant often and hope she's doing well and gotten her life back together. We wish no one harm, we most of the time hope that it's awareness for them & others. All the best to her for future...
