Apartment Life #290


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 have gone on in and around my apartment complex and in my neighborhood in the past 25 years that I'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.  

Update on my neighbor who had her car towed: 

She told me that she hasn't paid rent in 2 months, ever since her car was towed. She said that the manager keeps coming to her door asking her when she's going to pay rent and she keeps telling them she's not until they reimburse her the $800 she paid to get her car out of the towing place. I don't see that happening. 

I asked her why she doesn't just register her car and go to DMV and get her own plates? She said because if she did that she would have to take her car to a mechanic so that her car would pass the smog check because it won't right now. And if she did register it she would have to pay each year to get another smog check and if it didn't pass, more work done at the mechanics and pay more money for the registration sticker each year and she doesn't want to pay the money. It's just that simple. 

So she would rather steal registration stickers off of other peoples cars and steal a license plate from another car that looks like hers so she doesn't get pulled over while driving. She said if the judge makes her hand over the license plate she has, she'll just get another one. Oh and the manager never came by to do an apartment inspection and no other door locks have been changed. So they gave her a line of bull so they could change her locks. 


I looked out my bedroom window and saw this woman sitting here right out in the open hitting the crack pipe. I really don't know for sure what kind of drugs she was smoking but probably meth or crack. I took this picture from my bedroom window and you can see she was across the street. I watched for a few minutes because I had a feeling she was going to pass out there on the sidewalk and I was right. 

A few minutes later she just sorta fell over. A police car drove right by her and didn't stop. Like I've said before, there's no need to call the police, they won't do anything. She slept there for about 30 minutes.

Then two of her junkie friends came along on their bicycles and woke her up. She was having a really hard time standing up but she did eventually gather her stuff and walk away with them. It's not unusual to see people passed out, high, or doing drugs right out in the open around here. I want to reiterate that I don't take or post pictures of these people to make fun of them but rather to show people what it's like to live around here and what I see on an almost daily basis. 

The high this week was 83F/28C
The low this week was 47F/8C

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