“Adam was but human—this explains it all. He did not want the apple for the apple’s sake, he wanted it only because it was forbidden. The mistake was in not forbidding the serpent; then he would have eaten the serpent.” ― Mark Twain,
The woman in the photo above was calling her husband to come and help remove a large buffet hutch that her two sons and husband had casually dropped off outside my patio doors over night.
A noisy commotion began last night about 10 p.m. and lasted about two hours. This ruckus in the suite above mine rattled dishes in the kitchen cabinets. It should be noted that the neighbors themselves are arrogant and a call to on site management is alway key to a solution when dealing with them.
There is a clause in our rental agreement that absolutely forbids tenants from using the apartment grounds as their personal dumping ground. These tenants had been there long enough to know the ropes of being a responsible renter.
It was generally quiet overnight but this morning about 11 a.m. the racket started again. I picked up the phone, dialed the complex manager’s office and made a request asking: (1) what are they doing upstairs; (2) how long will this noise continue; and (3) what are their plans to removing this wooden behemoth from the outer entrance steps?
My phone call for assistance got immediate results. The noise stopped , the woman in the photo called her husband to help her sons remove the mess and the cabinet was carted away to the dump.
Most delinquent tenants place their abandoned furniture beside the green garbage collection container during the night and then skip town hoping that no one will catch them. There is a $250 fine if you are caught .
Sometimes you have to raise a ruckus of your own to ensure that your safety and your fellow tenants safety is assured.
