Totally O/T: Bad Neighbor and Harassment Claim
So at bf's apartment complex, he lives on the 3rd floor and the building is set up that the hallway/corridor is outside so once you walk out of your apartment you are exposed to the elements. Over the winter a new neighbor moved in on this floor, but is the first apartment door when you reach the top of the stairs of the 3rd floor. There is also a 4th floor to this building. A woman lives there with her dog. Bf's apartment is diagonal from hers, so she is not his next door neighbor or directly across from him, but we pass her apartment every time you come and go. She is not the best neighbor for the following reasons:
1. She leaves her dog on her balcony 75% of the time, that barks the whole time the dog is out there, especially when another dog passes by
2. She smokes a lot of weed which makes the whole corridor smell strongly of weed
3. She will leave her trash outside her door for a day or two before walking it down to the dumpster
4. When she takes her trash to the dumpster she drags it which causes a rip in the bag and leaves gross residue on the stairs and hallway, down the sidewalk to the dumpster
The neighbor across from bf is very nice, he has lived there before bf moved there, he is extremely polite and very rarely home. Every time I see him during the week he is dressed up in a suit. He lives alone, but has a gf who is also very polite. A few months ago when I saw him, he had commented to me that he has been smelling weed all the time, must be the new neighbor. I told him, yeah it must be because it has never smelled like that before. Then about a month ago, when bf and I were coming home as we were climbing the stairs, we heard LOUD banging on a door and we were like oh shit what is going on. Turns out nice neighbor was banging on new neighbors door (which is his next door neighbor, the not the best neighbor). Bf and I said hello to him and he said hello and how his whole place stinks of weed and he has had enough. We went in bf's apartment and have no idea how the conversation went, but we don't think well because then new neighbor slammed his door a few minutes later.
I say all this to give back story. So two days ago now, there was a note on not the best neighbor's door, after 24 hours she had two bags of trash outside her door which said "This is NOT ok. The office will be notified." ....
Well bad neighbor replied to it yesterday morning on the same paper saying "To whomever wrote this and doesn't have the balls to say it to my face... I work everyday and I get things done when I can. I was in a rush. Not that I need to explain shit to you. Give me a day break. One day I leave trash out. Either help or mind your damn business. P.S. If you feel the need to be a KAREN call me (left number)."
Then, someone else responds to these notes yesterday afternoon with a sticky note saying "This is not the first time you have left trash outside your door for 24+ hours. Can attract mice, bugs, etc. Plus it is gross. Not original note writer, but 2nd their note. Plus smells like weed often. Be mindful of your neighbors."
This morning there was a fresh note from bad neighbor on her door saying "To whom it may concern... At this point you both are harassing me. I need names & addresses ASAP. (She left space for two people to write names and addresses). Number 1... You have touched my door and have addressed your frustrations on my door. Over trash... As if I am not aware of the effects of trash staying in an outside enviorment for over a 24+ hour period. I am aware... and not dumb... the trash still goes out regardless. Now the fact you wait till I am not at home to say something....Again...I work...and I STILL DO IT. You both are acting as if I am FREQUENTLY doing this. As if your lives are SO EFFECTED. Understand... Your response wasn't needed. I work come home, and mind my damn business. I don't pester any of you with notes or dumb messages. Leave me alone. The next note in response to this will have a court summons on your door. If and when, contact me and my lawyer. Harrassment is not okay (Left lawyer's name and number). P.S. I've already emailed the leasing manager... She's aware of my response and I sent pictures. So call me if you need. Now ya'll have a nice day :)"
Personally we think the nice neighbor wrote the note because we actually saw him so he was home which is rare and after the last time he knocked on her door, probably didn't want a face to face interaction because he is fed up.
The reason I have all the verbiage is because bf has taken photos and sent it to me. Personally, we find it ridiculous because I can name 10 times she has done this with her trash. No one else in the building does this. If they don't have time, they leave it in their trash cans like normal/clean people until they have time to take it out. Also, bf looked up attorney, her attorney is a criminal attorney so that is interesting. So happy we are moving out of this building tomorrow though, the drama is unreal.
