Crotchety Storage Lady is an animated story created by Rebecca Parham.


Rebecca Parham's mother explains her story of her and the Storage Lady.


It was about 1980 when Ann had her first experience with storage. She and her husband, Mike, got all of their stuff and drove it to the self storage within three towns of them, so she got out and walk to the office to go to the self storage. The self storage wasn't furnished much.

She approached to the front desk and saw an open door, where there was a room that the manager was in (the storage lady). The manager lived in the office. She got out of her room, ask Ann, leaned over the counter, looked through the window at Ann's moving truck and said that she is going to need a 12-by-28. Ann had to fill up the paper. However, she needed a pen, which cost 41 dollars and 50 cents. She also needed a lock, which cost 5 dollars.

The units are in the last building on the right, behind the gate on the other way, and the manager has to lock it at 6:00PM. Ann needed to hurry up in this case, because it was 5:30PM when this was happening. Her payment was due to the 12th, and if she didn't pay, the manager would sell her stuff.

Ann signed in the contract, the manager gave her a copy of it, Ann wrote her a check and that was pretty much it. She went into the truck and her husband ask what did she get. They drove the truck all the way to their home.
