They’re Gunning For My Vehicle

The Overlook in Antioch is an absolutely horrible place to live!!!!!  I have had issues left and right w/ parking, because when I get home at night, there are no spots available near my apartment, and I don’t feel I should have to walk a ways, by myself, in the dark, in Antioch, to get to my apartment!  My solution to this was parking on the sidewalk, and getting up early in the morning to move it, and once in a blue moon, there would be a green tow sticker on my car, so I figured I’d just have to beat them to it LOL!  Now, apparently they planted Monkeygrass (which look like freakin’ weeds) in the little square foot and a half of non cemented sidewalk where I park, and now want to charge me 54 DOLLARS for running over weeds!!!!!!!!  Last Monday, I went out to move my car, and there was one of the maintenance guys taking a picture of my car, and advised me there was a paper in my windshield wiper, of which said I was breaking my lease agreement supposedly, and was fined 50 for not parking properly!  I went in to bitch out the manager, for the umpteenth time, and she was no help whatsoever, she did waive that fine, but still hasn’t given me a solution to the problem, except to park way down by the mailboxes!

Last Thursday, I had to go run a load of laundry early in the morning before I left for work, and when I came back, there were 2 spots open next to each other, but there was a big o’ van in the way which prohibited me from manuevering into one spot, and I figured I was only going to be there for an hour, what could happen!!!  Except that I get stickered, of which have graduated to orange, which, I guess means you get fined, because they want $50 for an hour of lousy parking, only bc I couldn’t move w/out hitting the van, and I’m sure he wouldn’t appreciate me hitting him, nor did I wanna damage my nice vehicle!  That day, when I went in to bitch the manager out, she said the owners wouldn’t let her waive the $50 fee, and I asked for a to call these owners, and will be doing so on Monday, but what a load of crap, because they can’t supply sufficient enough parking, that I have to pay money…..BULL SHIT!!!!!

On Friday, when I left for work, at 10ish, of which they would’ve stickered my car by then, I see a black truck parked on the side of the road, and there wasn’t one green or orange sticker on that truck!!!!!  What a load of crap!  And the one time I did park my car on the side of the curb like that, and I moved it early enough, the manager knew I parked it there!  And I don’t know any of the people that work there by name!!!!

Needless to say, I love my new roommie, but I officially told her on Friday to start looking for a new roommate!  Can’t wait to get out of there!  And how sad is it that I’m afraid to leave, or am forced to stay away from home longer bc I don’t wanna lose my spot, or can’t find one!!!!!!  It’s just not fair!

So, for those of you that don’t know, I have now moved into what I perceive as “la ghetto” otherwise known as Antioch, TN.  I like the apartment, it is nice, and love my new roommate, but I just hate the area it’s in!

Within the first 24 hours of my moving in, my couch was stolen!  When I moved in, the girl who I was replacing still had her stuff there, so there wasn’t any room to put it in the apt, so we left it in the breezeway, and I had to go to work that evening, and in that time, she was supposed to move her shit out, and move my couch in, but she didn’t!!!!  Now, my roommate was gone all weekend, but when I got back from work on Friday night, the couch was still there, and when I left for work the next morning, it was still there, but when returning around 8:30 that night, the damn thing was gone!!!!!!!!!

I have to work late on Sunday and Monday nights, till Midnight, and I can never find parking!!!!  I am not about to compromise my safety walking in the dark because I can’t find nearby parking, and I can’t run fast if I think I’m being followed! So one night, I got home from work, and decided I was gonna park on the sidewalk, and then I’m getting ready to leave the next day for a job interview, and I got a big ol’ bright green tow immediately sticker on my car!!!!!  I was pissed!!  I went in and bitched the little guy out that works there (it’s his own fault, when he asked how I was, I told him I was pretty freakin’ pissed, (but I think I was nice enough to ask how he was in return), and he went to go speak to the manager there, and she called me in her office, and basically made it sound like she could care less.  She said she’ll look into the parking issue and see if all the cars there belong there, but I know there are plenty of “baby mama’s” and “baby daddy’s” that are there and don’t belong there!  It’s just horrible when you’re exhausted after a long day and can’t go to bed because of parking!!!!  If anyone knows anyone looking for a roommate, with ample parking, LET ME KNOW!!!!!!
