    The Jaworskis aren’t sure why inspectors, after years of summer seminars, suddenly showed up . . . They recently turned their home into a bed and breakfast. . . .

    The Jaworskis are idiots.Report

  4. Hi Rufus –

    Thank you for writing about my parents. I appreciate it.

    Pat: I don’t understand why you would call us idiots. The two things you quote don’t relate to one another. We are permitted to have a bed and breakfast according to by-laws and zoning.

    So what makes you say that we’re idiots?Report

      @Peter Jaworski, Having dozens of people pay you money to stay at your private house caused no problems for ten years. Then this year, having 72 people pay to stay at your licensed bed and breakfast, which is regulated as a small hotel–in Quebec that’s limited to five rooms, I imagine Ontario is similar–this brings attention from the provincial government. And you’re “not sure why” this happened. I will allow that maybe you’re pretending to be idiots.Report
