Apartment Life #366

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. 

On Tuesday my daughter was on her way to work and she saw some woman passed out by the bus stop she waits for the bus at. She checked on her to make sure she wasn't dead and she wasn't. Just did too many drugs. This is quite normal to see in my neighborhood.

The police showed up this week one night and went to my elderly neighbors door. I thought maybe she called police on drug dealer because I spoke too soon and he's not gone yet!!! He told me that he doesn't have to be out until the end of the month. They have all their stuff moved out and his wife is at their new apartment but he's sticking around to deal drugs and have all the druggies over to his empty apartment until they change the locks. 

Anyway, I found out the next morning from my elderly neighbor that her daughter came over to her apartment after a fight with her husband so she went to her moms apartment and called the police on him. No one was arrested. She was mad at her daughter for doing that though. She said she should have called from her own apartment, she only lives 2 buildings away and they (The daughter and her husband) fight all the time. She said her daughter has been in jail 5 times for fights she's had with her husband. I don't know how many times the husband has been in jail but it's been a few.

So in an effort to prettify the front of my apartment complex , the three maintenance guys spent the entire day digging holes, pouring concrete, so that they can install these flags. There's also new leasing posters up on the office wall trying to get new tenants in here since we have so many vacant apartments.

It would only take a prospective tenant about 10 minutes of walking the grounds to see the graffiti, at least one of the trash cans full of bullet holes, drug addicts sitting all over the property, some days there are spent needles on the sidewalk, not to mention the gunshots that we hear at least once a week in the neighborhood.

But sure, put up a few flags and a new leasing poster and hope that we get a few new tenants that will Overlook all of the other stuff. If anybody is interested in living here, I can definitely put in a good word for you. 😜

Speaking of spent, dirty needles, of course I found one near drug dealers apartment this week. I will be so glad when he's finally gone at the end of the month.

So I watched a drug deal go down right in front of my bedroom window. This guy in the white truck pulled up waited for a few seconds, and a guy that we know as long-haired guy, come running over to his truck. The guy in the truck gave him something, probably money, and then I watched long hair guy run back to drug dealers apartment was only in there for not even 20 seconds, and then ran back out to the guy in the white truck. Long haired guy gave the guy in the truck something, he checked it, gave long haired guy something, probably drugs, long haired guy checked it and then they parted ways. The entire drug deal took less than two minutes. So drug dealer is still at it, probably will be doing this until the end of the month. 

I had a video of it but for some reason blogger won't post it so I just removed it. 

The high this week was 95F/35C
The low this week was 57F/13C

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