Apartment Life: #320

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. 

On Wednesday I heard what sounded like a fire truck drive past my window, it was but it went by too fast for me to get a picture. Then these two police cars showed up.

A few minutes later an ambulance also showed up and then another ambulance showed up but it went by too fast for me to get a picture. They were all at that corner apartment complex across the street. I found out a couple of days later that it was for a domestic disturbance (a couple fighting) in one of the upstairs apartments. One person was taken away in that ambulance. One guy was arrested. 

How did I not know that these 2 inches of horror also known as Palmetto Bugs ...can fly!!! Did you know they can fly? Did you? I found out Wednesday night when one flew and landed on me while I was outside. To say I was not happy is an understatement. The amount of screaming that took place....

Monday night my daughter was walking to her job where she works the graveyard shift. She was on a side street and saw a car swerving towards her so she stood behind one of the tall and wide light poles so it would hit the pole instead of her if it happened to. They raced past, turned around and came towards her again, this time they were shooting a gun at her as they drove by. She heard one bullet hit the light pole she was hiding behind and heard another bullet zoom past real close to her head. They were wearing masks and when they left she called me crying hysterically. She stayed on the phone with me on the way to work and she called the police and made a report when she got to work. The police looked around where she said it happened but didn't find anything. They called her back and let her know that. I don't think they looked too hard. She's fine thankfully. 

Last night around 8PM I heard squealing tires and then a loud bang. My whole apartment building shook! Looked outside to this car overturned and two men running away from the scene. People started running outside and calling 911 on their phones. No one was hurt. 

People were outside taking pictures of the truck before the police got here. But they showed up within 5 minutes of it happening.

The first police car showed up real fast.

And then several more police cars showed up soon after.  My daughter went out there and heard the police saying it's a stolen license plate so the car might be stolen too. That's probably why I saw two guys running away from the accident. 

Then the tow truck came and took the vehicle away.

The high this week was 104F/40C
The low this week was 71F/21C

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