Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

One thought on “Your long video for the day.”
  1. My last residence was a low-end apartment complex, one step up from a crackhouse. I lived there as a single mom supporting two teens. There were a lot of multigenerational families there, seniors, and college kids living there. The complex had a similar arrangement with a tow company. I can’t say whether or not the tow company followed all the rules, but they were predatory. I saw many neighbors or guests of neighbors screaming because their car was towed because their parking decal had fallen from the window or the guest parking spaces weren’t clearly marked. We all want to be able to park near the building we legitimately rent, and we don’t our parking areas to be misused, but this was not right.

    The same apartment complex had rules for how many potted plants you could have out front (two). I once got a warning for having a holiday wreath on my door two days after Christmas. The complex was notorious for charging ridiculously high “clean up” fees after people moved out, and most of the residents were too frightened to challenge

    The owners did not respect the residents. They treated them like garbage. Before I moved, they repainted the exterior of the buildings, including the walkways. We were instructed to move everything off of the walk, which we did. A neighbor walked their little dog past my door and it left a rather sticky present that the neighbor didn’t clean. I didn’t want to smear it into the concrete and or have to wash it away (second story, not so easy), so I removed what I could and was going to wait for it to dry so I could remove the rest. Before I could clean it, the painters came and painted over the dog poop. Seriously! We also found several bugs and occasionally a small lizard painted into the wall. Classy.

    When my youngest graduated, I moved far away to an area where I could afford a small house of my own. It’s old, it needs work, but it’s mine. I will never live in a rental again. They will have to carry me out of this place. Landlords have a right to have their property treated with respect. Tenants have the right to have their property treated with respect. Too often, the respect is only one way.
