Susan Hodgson of Atlanta, Georgia was on vacation when one of her neighbors called to ask her if she had intended to have her unoccupied family home demolished. Unfortunately, the call came too late—the home was already a pile of rubble. When the neighbor confronted the demolition crew, they checked their permit and… ooops! Wrong address!
"It's been boarded up about 15 years, and we keep it boarded, covered, grass cut, and the yard is clean," Hodgson said. "The taxes are paid and everything is up on it."
From the Associated Press:
To this day, she said the Atlanta-based company responsible, You Call It We Haul It, has yet to contact her.
The company did not immediately return a telephone message left Saturday. In a statement to WAGA-TV, the company said it is investigating and working to resolve the mishap.
Quite the mishap, indeed.
