Apartment Life #36


This is a new weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 20 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 20 years here in a weekly blog post.


Back in 2016 we had a neighbor who lived right next door to me. We didn't get along because she was hooked on heroine and did some really stupid things. She played her music really loudly and would pass out in her apartment and leave the stereo up really loudly for hours. 

So she wanted to put out chairs and tables and a garden in front of her door but since her door was right next to mine, we shared the space in front of our doors. She asked me on more than one occasion if I would remove my bbq because it was in the way of what she wanted to do with the space in front of our two doors. I refused and said she could have half the space same as me. My bbq in that picture sat directly in front of my door. All that space on the left hand side all the way over to the bush was hers. But she had to invade my space. Big mistake.

She filled both of our spaces with chairs, a dog house, a table, and so many potted plants that there was no room at all in our space for anything else. She put some of her plants so close to the back of my bbq that you can see in this picture that they got burned when I lit my bbq. I hardly ever used the bbq but she pissed me off so badly that I bought two huge bags of briquettes and bbq's every single day for 2 weeks. It burned all of the plants that were directly touching my bbq and scorched the wood table she put on the right side of my bbq. She also couldn't keep her door open for the 3-6 hours that I was bbqing each day because all the smoke would blow into her apartment. I slow cooked a couple of roasts in the bbq for 5-6 hours a couple of days and she was really mad that she couldn't sit in her chairs out there. 

If she had just stuck to her side like I told her too, I wouldn't have had to go to bitch mode but she had no one to blame but herself. She ended up being evicted when she didn't pay her rent for 2 months. Spent too much on heroine I guess.

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.

  1. Omg! So hilarious! I wonder if I'd have the guts to do this if I ever came across this type of behaviour from my neighbor!

    Go you!

  2. We didn't get along because she was hooked on heroine

    Hey, I've been a heroine addict ever since I saw Sigourney Weaver in Alien. Seriously, how did she react to the BBQ warfare? Did it ever occur to her to move her stuff out of your half?

    1. She never moved her stuff. Her addiction got really bad and she just stopped taking care of any of it and it all died. It was all thrown away when she got evicted.

  3. One has really no idea about human nature unless one has experienced life in an appartment complex.
    It's in a place like this that you develop feelings like hatred, contempt, and become very realistic about people.

  11. I don't know how you put up with these people. I would go insane. I don't deal well with people. Even out in the country, I had a guy tell me I couldn't put a barn on my own property, because "it would ruin his view". There was no view. He moved before we finally got around to building the barn, but we put it exactly where we wanted it.

  18. Did she ever say anything about it? That's funny! It's only common courtesy to halve the space like you suggested. Crazy people!
