Apartment Life #305

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.  

The police helicopter was flying over the parking lot next door where Cal Ranch, the strip mall and the supermarket is. The police never showed up so I don't know what they were looking for. 

I've told you before that the supermarket, Cal Ranch, the liquor store and the the dog training place is right next door but I wanted to show you I mean, right next door. I'm standing in my alley right next to my apartment building. Right on the other side of the block wall separating my alley from their parking lot is Cal Ranch, the supermarket, liquor store, dog training place ect. 

There were two police cars across the street from my apartment complex along the path that I walk Falcor. But they were just making the homeless people move from where they had set up their tents. 

The Mormons have been hitting my street really hard the last couple of weeks. They aren't getting any new people wanting to go to their church or talk with them for long around here, so they've started getting a lot pushier in the last few days. They stopped me 4 times over 3 days and I finally had to get rude and tell them to leave me alone. I was nice the first few times and said I wasn't interested. 

I've heard them right outside my bedroom window doing the same thing to some of the older people around here and they don't want to take no for an answer which if this one lady's daughter hadn't come outside to get rid of them I was going to say something. 

This guy in the truck had just gotten home from the grocery store and was trying to get out of his truck when these two guys ran up to his truck and stood right near the door so he couldn't get out and couldn't close his door. I heard him say he had a bag of frozen food he needed to get in the apartment and they finally backed up and let him out and then proceeded to follow him back to his apartment. But he was smart enough to not them them inside and when they wouldn't leave he ended up slamming his door. He was mad. 

Then yesterday I was out with the dog and I hear, "Hey!, HI!, Hey!" And they both ran from across the street screaming at me. I pulled out my tazer before I turned around because I just heard footsteps running up behind me. I yelled at them and said they almost got tazed that they shouldn't be running up behind any women. He totally ignored what I said and started on his spiel about how he wanted to talk to me about Jesus Christ. 

Me: "Are you serious?, This is the 5th time I've told you I'm not interested. You bother me again I'm calling the cops for harassment. You should find another neighborhood to bother people." 

Him: "Sorry" And they left to chase after someone else. Talk about pushy, damn. 

You want to know something funny? When I'm in my bedroom reading on my Kindle, I set this mirror on the window sill so that I can see the street but the people can't see me watching them. LOL If I see something interesting then I look the window and take pictures. If you click on the picture, you can see the two Mormom guys in the reflection of the mirror and no one has any idea I'm watching what's going on around here. 

It's a really small mirror and when I walk by outside I can't even see it unless I'm really looking for it. 

The high this week was 56F/13C
The low this week was 40F/4C

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