I haven’t written about my awful renter neighbors for a while …
It doesn’t look like they’ll be leaving anytime soon, much to my dismay. Well .. unless they’re having trouble paying the rent again, that is. Hey, I can hope!
I am worried about them though! We’ve heard from friends of ours that used to live in the same apartment building as our renter neighbors (a few apartment buildings over the last several years) that they often don’t pay the rent or their bills and they have a history of drug abuse.
I’m pretty sure the stories about them using illegal drugs are true as they often look out of it when we see them on the street, especially lately! They also look older than the ages they told us they were when they moved in in September. They’d told us they were 31 or 32 but man, they look like they’re 10 or more years older, especially lately!
Every time we talk with the guy next door his eyes are slits and red rimmed and he seems confused or out of it. My husband and I don’t talk to the woman next door very often, but when we do she’s pretty much the same.
I feel bad for their kids. They have three of them – all girls and the youngest is about 2 years old. I’ve actually never even see the 2 year old, but my husband just saw her for the first time this week. It can’t be a good environment for them moving every few months because of unpaid bills and or rent and with parents that stay up all night possibly doing drugs. The best thing they can do for themselves and their kids is to perhaps check into a good drug rehab.
Anyway … if they manage to keep paying the rent they’ll be our neighbors until August, but I have a feeling that they’ll either get kicked out or move out before that. Remember how they were stealing my internet bandwidth in November because they must have had their cable canceled? Well, They are on a satellite TV and internet system now (Bell) and I’d bet $100 but that that will be cut off soon.
Do any of you have undesirable neighbors? Ones that concern you or ones that make you concerned for their kids?
