Apartment Life #358

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. 

The pipe right here is the sewage overflow. When the plumbing pipes in a building start to backup and get clogged, the sewage starts coming out of these pipes around the buildings. I called in a work order to let them know it was happening again, because this happens several times a year. They came out the next day and snaked the pipe. Then they came out again the day after that because it was still overflowing. Then again the day after that, they came out again. Three days of raw sewage has been leaking from this pipe and this pipe sits right underneath my bedroom window. 

Looking down at it from my bedroom window. It did finally get fixed but they just left the mess there to dry up and blow away per usual. 

Right on the walkway, near where the drug addicts hang out in my apartment complex were 2 needles, one had something in it. At least both were capped. I used a piece of trash to pick them up and throw them in the trash can. 

Thursday morning my daughter heard a bunch of yelling outside the bedroom window. So we went and looked and there was a huge fight going on in the courtyard right across the street. They were on the ground actually throwing punches at each other. When they got up, a woman had a broom and hit the tall guy with it. Then another man had a metal stick and hit the tall guy with that. The police showed up really fast and the tall guy walked right by the police officer as he was going to the apartment. 

I took this picture from my bedroom window as you can see I can see the courtyard from my window. The police officer was standing over there talking to some of the people that were involved. When my daughter and I saw the fighting there were at least 7 people involved but they all scattered before the cops got there. 

Then another police officer showed up. One cop went around the building where the people were pointing and I'm guessing telling the cops where the tall guy went. The woman who hit him with the broom handle had been yelling at him to give her back her stuff. Who knows what he took but she wanted it back bad enough to hit him for it. 

One cop left soon after and the other officer got paperwork out of his trunk for them to fill out but no one was arrested. Which I'm completely surprised about since two people assaulted tall guy with sticks. The police left a little while later. 

The high this week was 68F/20C
The low this week was 46F/7C

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