    my apartment's appreciation thread

    Discussion started by Abracadabra - Sep 27, 2002

    there's been a fair bit of action over the last month or so in my neighborhood. here's some of the more memorable events.

    - a truck went into the river around the corner from my place. nobody died, which is suprising considering how polluted the fuckin thing is. a year prior to this a bus went in in exactly the same place. pretty crazy.

    - a guy got beaten half to death with a wrench in the middle of the day by a gang of knackers (kids from the council flats a couple blocks away). his head was mangled and you couldn't even tell where his facial features were. he was pretty fucked up. blood everywhere.

    - the bums keep their sleeping gear at the front of our building. the other day somebody decided to set the shit on fire and burn the fuck out of the front of our building.

    - they installed a few surveillance cameras on the building accross the street. nothing major normally, but this brings the count of camers on my street to 8. the fucking street is only 50 metres long!

    - i came back from the convenience store around the corner the other night after getting some milk to find some drunk chick taking a shit behind a car in front of my building. when she spotted me looking at her astonished, she was stupid enough to say "what are you looking at?" whaddya reckon missus'?!

    - every couple of days there is a car with a smashed window outside our building having been broken into and robbed. i think the count for this month is about 10. pretty amazing considering all the cameras everywhere, and the fact that the police station is only 2 blocks away.

    - and just last night the building behind ours caught fire smoking us the fuck out. it took ages for the fire trucks to get there cos the traffic in this city is stupid.


    beats the shit outta living in the suburbs

    i dont know why this is so hilarious to me
    i guess its because i picture some guy in the building setting the crap on fire
    then going back into his apartment chuckling to himself
    only to figure out that he has burned the building
    no hes pissed at the bums for leaving crap there for him to set fire to

    My college is in the ghetto. Half the building is let out as budget acomodation - mostly junkies. The windows have mesh just inside them to stop hurled bricks and shit - and the little gap between the mesh and the window is filled halfway up the window with dead flies. The kids around the place break into cars for fun during the day - I'm talking 9 year olds.


    well, I mean as ghetto as Ireland gets really. Everyone is white tho - I think the black people have more sense than to live around there........................

    ahhhh, reminds me off my old hood.....glad to be away from that crazy shit, 6 years in hoods like that was enough. i'm in no posh shit now, but its nice to not have to chase crackheads off your porch daily and answer to the cops who you are for chilling in your own yard....and to leave the door open w/ out fear of some random fools walking in.....andbe able to leave a cooler or hibachi grill on your back porch and still having it there in the morning......and throwing your trash out knowing nobody going to be digging through your shit.....
