Happy Birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JIMMY!

TODAY, MAY 25,  IS JIMMY'S BIRTHDAY.......

YET ANOTHER YEAR GONE BY......

THIS MORNING AT 9:30 AM, I WAS SHOCKED OUT OF A DEEP SLEEP, BY SOMEONE BANGING ON THE FRONT DOOR OF MY HOUSE, WHICH IS NEXT TO MY BEDROOM WINDOW....

THERE IS NO DOORBELL THERE, SO HE MUST HAVE USED A ROCK, OR SOMETHING, AND I THINK HE BANGED ON THE WALL OF THE HOUSE, NEXT TO THE DOOR.........HE WAS THE MAINTENNANCE MAN, AND KNOWS THAT THE DOORBELLS ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HOUSE.

I AM REALLY FED UP OF ALL THESE HAPPENINGS, THAT TAKE PLACE IN THIS COMMUNITY...IT IS SUPPOSSED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST GATED COMMUNITIES IN THIS AREA, AND WE PAY CLOSE TO 1000 DOLLARS PER MONTH HERE.........

I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE HAD SUCH THINGS HAPPEN IN THE PLACE I LIVE.....I GIESS THIS IS WHY THEY CANNOT KEEP RESIDENTS, AND PEOPLE ARE MOVING IN AND OUT ON A CONTINUAL BASIS........

SO, I JUMPED OUT OF BED, STILL HALF ASLEEP, BUT SHAKING ALL OVER FROM BEING AWOKEN WITH THE BANGING .....I WAS EXPECTING A DELIVERY FROM FEDERAL EXPRESS, AND THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE THEM, ALTHOUGH THEY GO TO THE OTHER DOOR, AND RING THE BELL.....IF ANYONE KNOCKS, IT IS ALWAYS A NORMAL KNOCK, NOT SUCH A BANGING.....

HERE I AM, STANDING THERE IN MY NIGHTGOWN, FACING THIS YOUNG FELLOW, WHO MUST BE IN HIS 20'S............WEARING A CAP AND SUNGLASSES, WITH AN ATTITUDE ABOUT HIM............."T'M THE MAINTENANCE MAN, AND I'M HERE TO PUT UP A NEW FRONT DOOR."...(this house is only around 5 years old, mind you.)........there was no notification from the management that new doors were being put up......

PRINCE, OF COURSE, WAS GOING WILD BARKING FURIOSLY THE WHOLE TIME.........PRINCE WILL ATTACK, AND HE WILL BITE, IF HE HAS TO..HE IS A VERY TERRITORIAL DOG, AND DOESN'T LIKE STRANGERS COMING TO THE DOOR.......AND PRINCE WILL NOT ONLY BITE, HE WILL ATTACK, AND GOES FOR THE NECK OF THE PERSON, AND WILL TRY TO TEAR THE ARM OFF............PRINCE IS THE BEST THING FOR ME SINCE JIMMY IS AWAY.....HE IS ACTUALLY A GUARD DOG...AND I, THE OWNER, MUST PROTECT PRINCE FROM ACTUALLY HARMING A STRANGER............PPRINCE IS THE CUTEST DOG YOU'VE EVER SEEN, BUT HE DOESN'T PLAY AROUND WHEN IT COMES TO PROTECTING ME.......

NOW, IF THIS YOUNG FELLOW THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO LET HIM IN MY HOUSE, AT 9:30 IN THE MORNING, HE MUST BE CRAZY..............FIRST OF ALL. I WAS SHAKING SO BADLY FROM THE SHOCK OF BEING WOKEN UP LIKE THAT, I FELT LIKE I COULDN'T CATCH MY BREATH, AND I MAY HAVE A HEART ATTACK..........

I TOLD HIM, I AM SLEEPING AND SICK........HE STOOD THERE, GLARING AT ME, WITH AN ATTITUDE, AND FINALLY HE SAID, HE'LL COME BACK ANOTHER DAY..........

MY FIRST INSTINCT WAS TO CALL THE OFFICE.......HOWEVER, WHAT I HAD TO TELL THEM, AND MOST LIKELY SCREAM TO THEM AT THIS POINT, WAS NOT FIT FOR A DOG, AND WHEN I WOULD BE DONE WITH THEM, BELIEVE ME, WITH THE LANGUAGE I WOULD USE, THEY WOULD WANT TO THROW ME OUT..........

SO, I TRIED TO CALM DOWN, AND LAID ON THE BED....I WAITED FOR JIMMY'S CALL. AROUND 11 AM HE CALLED.......I EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO HIM..........SO, HE CALLED THE OFFICE.

SO, NOW I AM WAITING TO SEE IF HE RETURNS TOMORROW..........I HAVE PUT UP A SIGN THAT READS, "PLEASE DO NOT KNOCK ON THE DOOR.  SICK PERSON RESTING.  PLEASE RING BELL ON BACK DOOR......."

LET'S SEE IF HE PAYS ATTENTION......

WE ARE VERY UPSET ABOUT THIS PLACE, WHERE I LIVE........THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING HERE.....

THEY ARE SUPPOSSED TO SEND A 24 HOUR WRITTEN NOTICE TO THE RESIDENT TO INFORM US IF SOMEONE HAS TO BE LET IN THE HOUSE FOR MAINTENANCE...........WELL THEY NEVER DO, AND THE ARE FOREVER COMING TO YOUR DOOR...AND I AM A LATE SLEEPER, BECAUSE SOMETIMES I'M UP UNTIL 6 OR 7 AM, READING OR WATCHING TV, AND I FEEL A LITTLE NERVOUS AT NIGHT TO SLEEP, LIVING ALONE.

LAST WEEK THEY WANTED ACCESS TO CHECK THE SECURITY CODES ON APPLIANCES....AGAIN, THEY CAME WITH NO NOTICE AT 9AM.  THE WOMAN NEXT DOOR IS SICK, AND IS NOT HOME A LOT OF THE TIME...WELL, I HEARD THIS SECURITY MAN OPEN HER DOOR, AND GO IN......DOES HE NOT REALIZE , THAT ENTERING THE PREMISE OF SOMEONE IS AGAINST THE LAW, UNLESS IT IS A MAJOR EMERGENCY?...................I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND THES PLACE........

TWO WEEKS AGO, AT 8AM, THE ROOFING MEN CAME, UNANNOUNCED, WALKING ON THE ROOF...HAMMERING, STRIPPING IT...SOUNDING LIKE THEY WOULD COME THROUGH THE ROOF..........BANGING ON THE ROOF....

LAST YEAR, I HEARD SOMEONE KNOCK TWICE ON MY KITCHEN WINDOW....IT WAS DARK OUT.  SO, I CALLED SECURITY.....SECURITY CAME, AND SAID THEY DIDN'T SEE ANYONE.  NOW, THIS SECURITY MAN CALLED 911, AND THR POLICEMAN CAME TO MY DOOR, AND ASKED WHY I CALLED 911...I TOLD HIM I DIDN'T, THAT SECURITY MUST HAVE........I MEAN, I THINK THAT IS WRONG............IF SECURITY FELT IT WAS A CASE DOR 911, THEN HE SHOULD HAVE SPOKEN TO THE POLICEMAN.............I WOULD NOT CALL 911 UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY...I THOUGHT IT OS THE JOB OF SECURITY TO CHECK ON THINGS.............I THINK EVERYONE HERE IS NUTS!

ALSO, LAT SUMMER, I PARKED MY CAR ON AN ADJOINING PARKING LOT, WHICH I CAN SEE FROM MY LIVING ROOM WINDOW.........NOW, THIS IS NOT ASSIGNED PARKING.  SECURITY ACTUALLY CALLED THE COPS ON ME...........INSTEAD OF SECURITY EITHER COMING TO MY DOOR, OR CALLING ME, AND TELLING ME TO MOVE MY CAR, THEY ACTUALLY CALLED THE COPS FOR THIS!.........I WAS SHOCKED WHEN A COP WAS SENT TO MY DOOR BY SECURITY.................I HAVE GOTTEN TO THE POINT THAT I HATE THIS PLACE...........I CANNOT MOVE UNTIL JIMMY CAN HELP ME TO FIND A NEW PLACE AND MOVE..........

THIS PLACE HAS MADE ME SO NERVOUS, I AM ABOUT TO LOSE MY MIND HERE..............

A HOME SHOULD BE A PLACE OF PEACE AND QUIET.....THAT IS HOW I LIKE IT................JIMMY WILL GET ME OUT OF HERE, THE FIRST CHANCE HE CAN.....TO MOVE TO ANOTHER HOME, MAYBE CLOSER TO HIS JOB.......

AND ABOUT THE PHONE LINES, I WOULD UNDERSTAND IF THEY WERE CUT ON THE GROUND, WHERE THE LANDSCAPERS WORK...BUT, NO.  ALL 3 TIMES, THEY WERE CUT INSSIDE THE MAIN BOX, OUTSIDE OF THE GATE, OUT OF VIEW OF  THE ENTRANCE SECURITY CAMERA........SOME PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME THAT IT IS THE GARDENER'S WHO ACCIDENTALLY CUT IT.............NO, CAN'T BE.........SOMEONE HAS TO KNOW HOW TO OPEN THE PHONE BOX, AND HAS TO BE SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW WHICH WIRE IS MINE......

WELL, I HAVE A NOTION WHO IS DOING IT.  HE WILL NOT HURT ME, BUT WILL GO TO ALL MEANS TO TRY AND MAKE MY LIFE MISERABLE...........AS HE HAS DONE IN THE PAST 3.2 YEARS.......YOU WOULD BE SHOCKED TO KNOW WHO WE THINK THIS WORK IS BEING DONE BY..........I AM SHOCKED MYSELF........

BUT, HE WON'T GET AWAY WITH IT.........I WILL GO THROUGH ALL MEANS TO HAVE THIS PERSON CAUGHT AND PUT IN PRISON.....

I'M WAITING FOR THE WIRES TO BE CUT THE NEXT TIME....I ESTIMATE IT WILL BE AROUND THE SAME TIME NEXT MONTH........IN THE MEANTIME, WE ARE GETTING A NEW PHONE LINE PUT IN, THAT WILL BE JUST FOR JIMMY AND MYSELF TO COMMUNICATE.......

NOW, IT IS ONLY TO PROVE HE IS THE ONE....AND HE WILL HOPEFULLY BE PUT IN PRISON FOR IT......

<FONTCOLOR=#040080 size="4">THERE ARE A LOT OF EVIL PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD........UNFORTUNATELY.................

So sorry you live in such a community where people have no respect for your privacy. I know you'll be happy when your man is home with you for good. I wish you all the best of luck, and please be careful.

With someone cutting your phone lines...don't you DARE let anyone into your house without prior knowledge!!  I'm so glad that your dog is so protective!  Just be careful! Can you tell I'm not too trusting of people coming to my door?  I've had weird stuff happen, that's why.

Nope they can come and go from your house anytime they want. That's like HUD they can come in and do or fix stuff while you're gone I know been there done that. As long as they have a key to get in you don't have to be home either when they come. You learn alot just from living on hud like that. As long as you never sgined anything stating that they can't come in like that then in a place like that they can even without notice!

I know when maintance comes here they can come so without notice, but they leave a note if I am not here explaining what they did and why they came in.  But we get community newsletters telling us ahead of time of most of those dates.  I would definately move as soon as you can.  You can always start searching online until Jimmy can help, that way you can narrow the search down a bit.

FRAN, I AM SORRY THAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH ALL THIS. IT IS ALWAYS SO MUCH EASIER WHEN YOUR LOVED ONE IS WITH YOU.
YOU WERE RIGHT, NEVER LET A STRANGER IN YOUR HOUSE. ANYONE CAN GET A SECURITY OR MAINT. OUTFIT, WITH SOMEONE ALL READY CUTTING YUR PHONE LINES YOU NEED TO USE  EXTRA CAUTION. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND USE CAUTION FRAN.
YOUR RIGHT ABOUT ONE THING, THERE ARE A LOT OF EVIL PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD. THEY LIKE TO SINGLE OUT WOMEN ALONE, SO BE CAREFUL.
I WOULD CALL THE OFFICE AND TELL THEM YOU ARE ILL AND NEED A 24 HOUR NOTICE WHEN THEY ARE SENDING SOMEONE TO DO ANY KIND OF REPAIRS. YOU CAN ALSO REQUEST THAT ANY REPAIES BE DONE IN THE AFTERNOON IF POSSIBLE. YOU CAN REQUEST THAT FRAN, I HAVE IN THE PAST WHEN I LIVED IN THOSE TYPES OF PLACES.
LOL, NOW I LIVE IN MY OWN HOUSE IN THE COUNTRY AND I  AM THE MAINT. PERSON.
TAKE CARE SWEETIE AND PLEASE TELL JIMMY I SAID "HAPPY BIRTHDAY."
