Apartment Life #354

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. 

Sunday night the police were all over my street and the cross street at the end of my street. The police were shining their bright spot light on their cars right at the bedroom windows all along my street. I don't know what they hoped to accomplish with that act of rudeness but they were also shining the light down the walk ways into the different courtyards. They seemed to be looking for someone.

That went on for a while and then they all left. It was almost 10PM and I'm sure some people were sleeping. Probably not for long with the bright spotlight being shined into their bedroom windows. I'm still trying to figure out what that was about. Were they mad/afraid someone was watching them or filming them from a bedroom window? I know I've been yelled at before for doing just that but I'm inside my apartment, not in their way. So sick of the bullying tactics when people aren't doing anything wrong.


Sunday evening about 8:30 PM  I got so mad when I went outside. I saw two people standing over by the old maintenance shop shooting up drugs. They weren't even trying to hide what they were doing. There are kids in this courtyard, my own grandson walks right by that area when he takes the trash out. So I yelled at them. 

"Are you seriously shooting up right there? Are you f*cking kidding me. There are kids in this courtyard that don't need to be seeing that sh*t. You have 5 f*cking seconds to get your shit and leave or I'm calling the cops. 5 seconds!" Is what I said. Then I took Falcor inside and went back out to see if they were gone and they had split.

So the next morning I sent an email to the apartment manager telling her about the drug problem and how drug dealer is the problem around here. Here is the response I received. 

"Good Morning Mary,

My name is Mayra and I'm the Regional Manager for the area.  I understand your concerns and want to sincerely apologize that you feel this way.  It has been brought to our attention, and we have begun legal proceedings against this unit.  I am unable to give you further information on what the status is or exactly what we're doing, but we are working on getting our unit back from them.  I promise you we are working diligently through the legal process to get possession of our unit.  
Thank you for being a valued resident "

So apparently it's not just me fed up and complaining and they are going to be out of here soon. *does little happy dance* 

I don't know how soon but it can't be soon enough for me. 

The high this week was 64F/17C
The low this week was 31F/-0.5C

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