Please Leave Your Front Door Open All Day

A few weeks ago a company, who I presume are acting on behalf of whoever owns the building my flat is in, wrote to me to tell me there would be painters in redecorating the communal areas. There have in fact been painters in and the whole place now smells of wet paint.

I got home this evening to find the following note posted through my door:

Corporate Colours (Decirations) Ltd

In order for us to carry put the painting works to your front door would you please open it tomorrow at 8am and leave it open for the rest of the day.

If you have any queries to our foreman on site, Dean Chapman. He can be contacted on *number*.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

Strangely enough the idea of leaving the front door open all day, while I go out to work, for a company I've never head of, at very short notice, is not one I'm too keen to take up.

I guess I'll ring the letting agents tomorrow and speak to them about it.

Do these people really expect us to happily leave our doors open all day?
