Apartment Life #48

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.

We've lived in this apartment for 20 years and we've gone through at least 9 apartment managers that I can remember. About 15 years ago we were friends with the manager we had and she asked me to take some pictures for her and email to her since she didn't have a phone or a camera. The camera I had was a POS and didn't have a flash so the pictures aren't great but they do tell a story. The manager evicted this couple and their 4 kids because people were complaining about the fights, the noise, the cops always being at their apartment and about people constantly knocking on their door all hours of the day and night...staying for 10 seconds and leaving. We suspected they were dealing drugs. So they got evicted, left a huge mess, damage and then fought the eviction in court and wanted their security deposit back. So she used these pictures to show the judge why she refused to give them back their security deposit. 

This is the room where all 4 kids slept and it was a mess. There were bunk beds and a crib in this room. There was a newborn, a 1 year old, 3 year old and a 5 year old. 

This was the kitchen.

The living room.

The front door had been kicked in a few times so the door was broken in several places. 

Most of the walls had holes in them. This looked like someone had kicked it a few times. 

There was so much stuff packed into the kids bedroom, there was hardly any room to walk around. 

But the worst thing we found was the lock on the outside of the bedroom door. The manager said she was going to point that out to the judge. I don't know if he sent children's protective services to their new place or not though. I can only hope so. About 2 weeks later they came and packed their stuff up and left with it.

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