Apartment Life #350

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 25 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 25 years here in a weekly blog post. 

I heard a bunch of voices arguing and shouting and the next thing I knew the fire department was here. It's a bad picture because it was at night and the fire engine had all of his lights on so it made the picture really glare. But you can kind of make out the front of the fire engine. The fire fighters went to the apartment 2 doors away from mine and the woman that lives there was taken out in a stretcher. 

Those bright lights were the ambulance.

I tried to get a better picture of it with my Kindle but it wasn't much better. I can't take night time pictures with my phone, they just don't come out very good but you can kind of make out the back of the ambulance with the door open in the back in this picture. The lady was taken to the hospital but even though I at first thought it was a domestic disturbance I am probably wrong since the police never showed up. I don't know if the shouting was because she got hurt or had a medical problem but that seems more likely. 

Our power went out for a few minutes when the electrical crews were working on the electrical lines. 

One day I will get a better camera but for now this will have to do. lol I was walking Falcor Monday morning and heard the police helicopter flying around. I looked and they were over my apartment complex. You might be able to see the little black speck in the sky, that's the police helicopter. The police never showed up so I have no idea why they were flying around. And yes, that's me talking.

On Friday I watched UPS pull up across the street and start unloading at least 8 big boxes and 2 smaller Amazon boxes and stack them near the street next to the laundry room. That is not an apartment door that is the door to the laundry room. 

I watched several people walk by looking at the boxes. 2 different pick up trucks pulled over and stopped right in front of the boxes for a few minutes but no one got out. 

Then I watched this guy walk by a couple of times and glance at the boxes. If they were his wouldn't he have known they would be sitting out there? Wouldn't he know that he was expecting a bunch of boxes and just right up to the pile? He didn't, he was walking by and turn around and walk by glancing around. lol Then he went into his apartment that is downstairs in that building and got a small dolly and started loading up the boxes. 

He stood there a few minutes not even looking to see if his name were on them and started loading them up. 

Then he pushed them over to his apartment. I mean, he's in a downstairs apartment. If these were his boxes wouldn't he have requested UPS leave them by his door? I hope these were his boxes. For a minute there I was telling my daughter I thought it could be a sting operation where the police leave a bunch of boxes outside and see who comes to steal them so they can tackle and arrest a bunch of thieves. That would have been exciting. LOL 

The high this week was 57F/13C
The low this week was 34F/1C
And it's been raining most of the week.

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