But my stock options came in, and the septic system for Claudia's Surf City went in. My first rental season—yes, without porches—was in 2001. Three thousand a week. Some of those same people are still coming back every year, at $4700 a week. And now there are new people tussling over every week in July and August. People try flattery, tears, cajoling, anger, insistence and persistence to get the week they want. They want to reserve long in advance, as if I would accrue any benefit from that. (Repeat after me: "This is not a time share.") No one has tried bribery yet. I'm waiting.
Sorry, I'm booked for the season.
