While I was doing my second tour in Iraq, my ex had some black man beating on our glass storm door.
Wow. It's odd that you mention that because I was going to mention similar - but I was trying hard not to be *too* long winded here.
It is another issue, nothing that happened to me personally, but has happened "here". I live in a $, "yuppy" area - yet there are alot of break ins
here. It's funny, I was just speaking about this too with a friend of mine - has even worse luck than I do - and she's the one who got me to thinking
about it. Esp. since I live right down the street.
Also, I hear about crime from other neighbors - and - the worst one - a neighbor in my building here - she said she had some guy trying to beat her
front door down- broke the top glass and was trying to climb in - and she was swinging at him with a golf club - AND - on the phone to 911 - and the
guy STILL would not give up and go. This was in *my building* - and somehow - the guy also got in through the lobby doors.
Erg. My apartment cost 400K. And I do not feel safe here AT ALL.
I am going to try to organize people to talk to the management so that maybe we can have dogs. *
I am also *seriously* working on moving. Ah, it's everywhere though - gotta deal.
Ah, it almost makes me think that if I got out of this hardcore urban place full of hardcore assholes as well as criminals - hmmm - maybe that's the
But on the other side of the coin - people are people and it's everywhere.
* ETA - I re read this post and decided that I will TELL the mgmt. that I *am* getting a dog and if they don't like it I'm leaving. I do think we all
should be allowed though too. And, my mind is made up that I am leaving this place anyway. I have *had it*.
