Apartment Life #69

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.

A couple of months ago the police parked their cars at the end of the street, and they stood in the middle of the street stopping every single car that tried to drive down our street. They made that car across the street pull over to the side of the road and she was there a while answering questions and showing her paperwork. 

Everyone that came out of their apartments and got in their car was also stopped before they could get off our street. I took these pictures out of my bedroom window because the police at the end of the street were also trying to talk to people that came outside. So Ken went out to walk the dog and he talked to them. They said they have had so many calls to this street and the apartment complexes in the past year that they decided to have a heavier presence here for a while. They're found a few stolen cars on this street too so there's that. They were checking to make sure people had up to date car insurance, drivers licenses and car papers. They also drove by and it looked like they were running all of the license plates. 

I didn't see anyone get arrested and no one seemed to have a problem talking to them. Maybe most of the people around here are sick of the gun shots late at night being fired into the air, the drug dealers and domestic disputes or the idiots speeding down our street.

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