Topic: Neighbours from hell part 2!
GRRRRRRR, Major GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR in fact!!!!
Not my neighbours but my mums, again! My mum lives alone in a block of tenament flats with 8 flats in the block. There is a common close area that leads to all the flats and my mum is on the ground floor with 3 floors or storeys as you Americans call them I think!
Anyway, a few years ago on the top floor heroin addicts moved in and rented out one of the top flats, neighbours from hell part 1! Just what you do not need anytime and especially not so when you are just 1 month out of the hospital with your second heart attack! And to cut a long story short, it was a complete and utter nightmare to say the least at my mums! Drug dealing all hours of the day and night, druggies coming and going, needles found in the garden, theft from the garden and all manner of mayhem in general. They also did not agree with the principal of having to pay for electricity and thought it best for them to bypass paying for it and break into the elctricty supply to the building and redirect cables etc so they got it for free. Not only did they do this once and got caught.......they did it again and we reported them again! They also cut the cable to my mums TV ariel on the roof of the building and re-directed it into their flat instead of them paying to have their own ariel put up on the roof! And throw in the fact that there were police raids by drug squad and doors getting kicked in and you get the picture of what went on for about 8 months! Not the most peaceful of summers but eventually they had enough and realised that we would not put up with their garbage and they moved out, thank goodness!
Peace reigned supreme for a few years and last summer was a good one bar the rain! You could sit outside in the garden and not have to worry about heroin addicts coming and going all hours! Well, that all changed a few weeks ago and my mum now has a new neighbour. Not a drug addict this time, at least I don't think so but for a change it is some nutter that likes drinking with his mates too much and fighting......
Friday night 2 weeks ago there was a party or so in his flat which ended up in a fight in the close after midnight and Friday just passed again there was trouble after midnight again. This time someone got stabbed right outside my mums front door and it was chaos there that we can all do without. Not sure if it was the guy up the stairs that got stabbed or stabbed someone but we haven't seen him since. Most probably he is in either hospital or the jail for the weekend but this is nonsense that we can do without, again! Friday night was something out of CSI at my mums. Police everywhere, everything cordoned off with police tape, police wanting statements and blood all over the close and wall.
Neighbours from hell part 2, GRRRRRRRRRR.................... Hopefully it will be a shorter chapter than part 1!
