Feeble. More like "I got this note from Chad. He sold his garage to a guy who collects interesting things, and is going to let him use my stuff".

But the crux of this is the complaint is not "That's no way to run a storage business". The complaint is "that's a dick move to pull when he invited me to keep all my stuff in his garage, and got rich as a result".

The better analogy is that Chad got rich by selling the well-stocked garage to someone else. The new owner didn't get rich by hosting your stuff, in fact they have paid good money for the privilege and now want to find a way of making that money back.

Facebook is in the hole for one billion dollars on this deal and so far haven't made back a single cent.
