Ever wonder what it’s like to manage a self-storage facility? The current edition of CBC Radio 3’s online magazine features a wonderful multimedia feature entitled Self Storage. Featuring an interview with self-storage landlord Hal Spradling, the piece also offers a dozen powerful photographs of abandoned storage lockers and their contents. Folks who rent self-storage units default their possessions if they default on their payments, and most items are put up for auction. A look into a job I’m glad I don’t have.
Be sure to turn the volume on your computer down, lest you disturb co-workers with the CBC’s streaming audio.
