Grrrr! I was just handed a notice from management.
According to *Someone*, I was SEEN smoking in my apt. through my Kitchen Window, and smoke was coming out.
1. I live in an upstairs unit, so IF smoke WERE coming out my window, it would blow into the air and dissipate before anyone on the ground would be able to see it, especially since it would be only ONE person smoking ONE cigarette at a time!
2. I NEVER open my kitchen curtains for the exact reason that I "DON'T WANT PEOPLE LOOKING IN MY WINDOWS!" (The NERVE)
This is why I stay on the second floor, it's too high for people to SNOOP! Most *old* people can't/won't come upstairs!
That was the first complaint on the notice.
The second complaint..............Same weekend, mind you!
My *Guests* were ringing doorbells and knocking on doors of other tenants AND this happened approximately *20 TIMES*!!!
And during the day, so they would be sure to be seen and heard!
If that wasn't enough......................my guests were ALSO "DIGGING IN FLOWER POTS" of the tenants!
The only *GUESTS* I had this weekend were my son (age 34) and his son (age 10) and once they arrived here, they didn't go back outside until they left! (and WHY the hell would my kids want or need to go digging in someone's flower pots?)
Now, if this isn't ridiculous enough, these complaints were apparently Called in, but when I questioned the manager about it, all of a sudden, they were "WRITTEN COMPLAINTS"! Funny, this was Monday MORNING. I'm supposed to believe *someone* from this complex went to the manager first thing this morning and signed in a written complaint on my week end activities! And they were able to deliver a copy of the complaint at 11:00 a.m. to me! ARRGGGHHH!!!
Supposedly, the only way I can *refute* this complaint is by a written denial of my own! You can bet, I did EXACTLY that, too! It will go in the envelope along with my rent check and will be picked up on the 3rd!
I have lived in this place going on three years now. I don't spend time with anyone who lives here except my very next door neighbor. I even wait until nighttime to go pick up my mail or do laundry because I don't want to get familiar with them, I am not a very *social* individual (in person). Maybe that is the reason people make up stuff, maybe they think I'm a snob or something?
I can't change their ways of thinking, I guess. But would I even WANT to?? I keep myself to myself and I don't think any of my business should be anyone else's.
Ah well.....................guess I just wanted to unload a big gripe that makes no sense at all. Do you have neighbors like this?
