The beautiful graffiti wall was painted over in white. Closed sign placed on the door. It’s over. Sad day for Jarrod and Brandi.

Rene decided he was tired of dirty units. He was only bidding on clean lockers. Is there such a thing? Ivy frustrated at calls from home. Darrell wore a t-shirt advertising his new website. Advertisement always stated “Open 24/7. Brandi wondered what exactly was open 24/7.

Jarrod: He’s just saying his pants never close.

Rene without consideration approached Jarrod and asked him if he closed his store. Jarrod was not yet ready to reveal the truth.

This was not a classy move for Rene. At least Darrell knew to stay out of Jarrod’s business.
