I am really ashamed at where I live. My neighborhood is going to pot. I mean a piss pot at that.
Today I called again about the abandoned house next to me. Nothing has been done. Nothing will be done either as long as the tenant keeps paying for the satellite dish and their rent. Its disgusting how its been left. Equity told me today that they can't give me any information about the place. I stated quite firmly that I didn't request information about the place but that I am reporting that it has been abandoned. They don't care as long as they get their money.
It was so much better when the Army owned the housing on the installation. They only own the land the housing is on. Its really irking me at how the tenants think that they can just get away with everything.
I spoke with Tianana at Equity this morning. I complained about the neighborhood violations. She laughed. Nice how she thought it was so funny that our neighbors leave their trash and recycling cans out on the sidewalk for 5 days past the pick up date. She asked me for house numbers. I gave her two right off. All I had to do was look to my left to see the ones that are doing it every week. This place is looking like the slums.
If you are going to live in a house with a lawn you need to take care of your rental. I'm sorry but I don't want to see your trash out on the sidewalk and watch you drive up and just ignore it. Really does it take that much effort for you to wheel your trash cans up to your house? If you wheeled them down there I'm sure you can bring them back up.
I don't want to see you walking your dog off its leash and letting it shit on the sidewalk and walking away without picking it up.
I don't want to see you driving 40 in a 20 mph zone. Yes, even the buses violate the speed zone.
I don't want to see you working on your vehicle, or friend's vehicle in your garage with the door open or in the driveway letting all those toxic chemicals spill down in the drain way to get washed into the storm drain.
If you drop your paper, can, bottle, wrapper, or food container pick it up. Don't leave it there for the raccoons and crows to chew on.
I think my neighborhood needs some major extermination of the violators. I'm so sick and tired of following the rules that I signed off on only to have my neighbors decide to not follow them. You've been warned. I'm turning all of you in. I tried to live with a cohesiveness and happy go lucky but not anymore. I see it, I report it. The housing office is going to have to get off their butts and start ticketing the offenders if the neighborhood is going to listen.
You can't be the wishy wash parent that only applies the rules when you want to. You have to be the firm parent that keeps the rules enforced
