I couldn’t believe the video when I saw it. A viewer emailed me, fired up after watching a maintenance worker go through nearly every cabinet in his apartment.

You can see and hear the guy closing doors, even dresser drawers.

The worker was in the apartment to check the dryer vent, but based on the video, he never even entered the laundry room.
