Apartment Life #118

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.

On Tuesday at 6am when I took Falcor out for his first walk I spotted this cart and wheelchair by the apartment that has a lot of traffic. I suspect they deal drugs because of all the traffic they have all day and all night. Plus, people come and leave things like this, other items in front of their door to exchange for drugs. I know this for a fact because one of the guys who used to live next door to me, Jose said that he was able to get a small amount of crack for the old vacuum he left by their door. So I know it's true. People are crazy open about how they score their drugs or where they get them. I think if they bring more clients to them they might get some drugs for free but I'm just guessing about that.

So people will leave items or bring items for them to check out when they open their door. Sometimes people will stand there and bang on the door for a while and they won't open it for whatever reason. So they just leave the junk by the door until later.

Whatever the people in that apartment don't want, they just move away from their door and leave it on the sidewalk. This is the cart and the blankets that had been in the wheelchair. They kept the wheelchair. They make a huge mess a lot of times because there's so much stuff left by their door by people all the time. 


On Thursday the fire truck and ambulance showed up for the older guy in my building. His homeless brother who he let's camp out in front of his door at night in a chair got mad again because he wouldn't let him inside his apartment so he punched him in the face and gave him a black eye. 

I took the pictures from my bedroom window so they aren't great but you can see the fire truck and ambulance behind it. The guy that lives in the apartment won't let his brother in his apartment because he's on drugs and has stolen things from him and even smashed his living room window a few months ago. 

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