a week to regret

Friday last week, a neighbor drops dead in the hallway outside my door.
Saturday, I get woken by Police, cause it wasn't my neighbor, we have no idea who this woman was.
Then I find out that another neighbor died Tuesday, his body found Saturday. [ ripe doesn't begin to describe the stench the heat caused ]

Today, I'm told a senior citizen tenant is refusing his medication, so it looks like another deader before next weekend.

anyone want my life?

Just who have you upset recently?

Sounds like at the very least you should go and apologies to them if not actually beg for them to forgive you.

It sure sounds like you're lucky - whoever is trying to kill you is a bad

shot and keeps missing. In that situation you have to develop a morbid sense of humour or go crazy. Take care friend, take good care.

Seriously though, I can sympathise with you as I've been there.

During the mid 1970s I was a member of Her Majesty's NSW Constabulary and working from a station in one of the older working class areas - many houses originally built pre-gas and were later fitted with gas. Many of the very old residential houses had a lot of old people who'd been living there for decades. The winter that year was very bad. During the middle three weeks it was extremely cold. As the most junior person in the station I got the 'key holder' calls - person not seen for some days and the key holder needs to enter to check if they're OK, but it's done under police supervision - usually the officer opening the door and being first to enter. In a five week period I handled one or two on each shift, usually the person was dead, sometimes for some days - not nice at all. I had a real hard time eating meals for some weeks as the smell was very hard to get rid of - I lost enough weight to worry the shift supervisor and got shifted to traffic duty for a month.

Looks like it's your turn in the wringer.

I think I'll pass. Mine suddenly seems remarkably good.

Sorry about your week. I feel kinda wimpy for complaining about mine now.

Hope your weekend is better!

Sorry for all that happening to you

by jck In reply to a week to regret

I've been dealing with a lot of crap the past 5 months, both with me and immediate family.

Life sucks for me too, bro. Hope yours gets better.

Time to move or hire a body guard

by mjd420nova In reply to a week to regret

Where I live, about thirty five miles south of Oakland California, The criminal element has been creaping south for the last fourty years and has reached my neighborhood. Random shootings, carjackings, robbery and general thugery has overtaken the surrounding area. So far nothing has happened on my street yet, it is a dead end with only one way in or out so that may put it out of the realm of an easy mark and a quick getaway. Farther north in Richmond there are nightly shootings and hopefully it will remain safe here for at least a couple more years before I can retire and get the **** out of California. I do protect myself and home with a guard dog outside and a guard kitty inside. My weapons are loaded and kept near each door. I have no young children in the home and each member is well versed in how and when to use them. May you be blessed in not encountering any further mishaps in your proximity.
