Apartment Life #271

This is a 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 24 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 24 years here in a weekly blog post. 

My daughter was outside and she spotted a car crash. Here's the video she took of it. 

The police showed up and were making sure everyone was ok.

But it sure looks like the cars are totaled.

There were two cars, this red one and the black one in the video. Looked like both people were fine though.


If you follow me on FB or Twitter (@scarymary66) you might have seen me mention the new lady and her kids that just moved in. She had 2 small kids older is maybe 7 while the younger is probably 4. Well, she's made quite the impression on everyone around here. Her youngest has been seen outside several times in nothing but his underwear. The kids run around unsupervised all the time. The youngest almost got hit by a car last week when he ran into the street and a car had to slam the brakes to stop from hitting him. No supervision at all. And the kids are loud, screaming while running around. Open door and window season is just around the corner so this should be fun. Maybe the kids won't be outside so much when it gets cold. People tend to stay inside when it's cold around here. 

Last week I noticed that she had two large packages delivered and left outside her door while she wasn't home. Most people around here know better and she found out why. Later that day I noticed the packages were gone while I was walking the dog. I walked around the corner and saw the boxes hidden by one of the bushes. They had been opened and the empty boxes left by the bushes. The lady got home a little while later. So I'm guessing that one of the local homeless or druggies saw the boxes and took the and stole whatever was inside. I wasn't about to take her boxes and save them for her. People get accused to stealing for doing things like that. Plus it's a lesson about the kind of neighborhood she just moved into. Most people ask a neighbor to keep a lookout for packages and bring them inside if they aren't going to be home because of just this kind of thing.

The high this week was 100F/37C

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