Pitiful Sight

  I live in an apartment complex in Fort Worth.  I been very happy here. The  people in the office do a good job. 
A young black couple and a couple of toddlers lived in the apartment upstairs until yesterday. Because the maintenance man yesterday was tossing their stuff into the trash! 
  It was a sofa, bed and a lot of toddler stuff … I do not think the people moved anything out .. I guess they must have taken a few items.

  This is not the first time I have seen people tossed out like this .. in fact the people before these people had the same thing happen ..except no kids. 
 
   I am not sure how long the apartment people wait before they toss their stuff into the trash.  I suspect not long. 
   Over on Las Vegas Trail a couple of times, I was on the city bus, and I saw people’s stuff setting out at the curb. One time a person was setting with their stuff and I guess waiting for someone to pick them up and their was the apartment security guard standing and watching them.

      I am a bleeding heart liberal so seeing something like the above is upsetting to me.  On the other hand .. I pay my rent .. If other people don’t pay then I would have to pay more.
       I have lived here since 02/08/2011.  When Russ and I first moved in we lived in this building on the second floor.  I forget when we moved down on the ground floor.  But for a long time I never heard a sound from upstairs.  Long time before I saw the young woman that lived up there.  I never heard one sound from up there.  The people after her seem to make a lot of loud noises.  These apartments are build very well.  So I am not sure what people do up there.  It sounds like they are building stuff or jumping up and down. 
         I am glad I do not live upstairs now.  It would be hard for me to get up the stairs.  And carrying something up would be very hard.

I setup a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook in 1982. People connected at 300 baud. Upgrades and new things were done until 1995 when the world wide web was invented. Howard's Notebook was then moved to the web and is still in operation. I been blogging since 1982! I had one of the first webcams online.
