Apparently enough people in my apartment building have complained enough times that the entire building is going to be exterminated tomorrow.  Thank goodness!

There was an almost non-existent roach problem until the Skanks and Nasties moved in below me.  I've been here over 4 years now, but it wasn't until a few months after the S&Ns moved in that the problem began.  They were also the ones to leave trashbags on their balcony for days before finally taking them to the dumpster.  And I think they skipped out on their lease a couple of weeks ago, or perhaps they were evicted.  I kept seeing notices for unpaid water bills on their doorknob.

Regardless of where the problem started, I'm sick of it and am glad to have the entire building nuked tomorrow.  I hope they spray the fuck out of the place.  Then I'm going to have the apartment guys come and caulk around all the plumping fixtures and holes in walls...anything where a buggie could come through.

Oh, and I made chili tonight for dinner.  I'm about to go have some.

that was the biggest issue i had with living in an apartment. if one person is nasty, then everyone else suffers. we're pretty anal about not leaving food out, dishes or trash sit because of years of apartment living. since we live in a cemetery, the gound is often diturbed, leading to a nasty ant problem every spring/summer. we've got the extermination down to a science. i know many people in gated communities (who aren't dirty) who have rat problems because of where the develoment was built. the wildlife that lives in an area before the housing goes in, will often find a way to live the same area among the houses.

"The Skanks and the Nasties" sounds like rival gangs, only gangs made up young, moneyed trash. Paris Hilton would be the leader of the Skanks, and Lindsay Lohan would be a Nasty.

Anyway, I am glad you will bug free very soon.

what a lovely point catboy makes. i can picture them having a showdown with their little pussy dogs that wear clothing.

when you're a skank you're a skank all the way from your first cigarette to your last dying day la la la la

interesting that I started singing this one since the title of your entry started me with "chicks and ducks and geese better scurry..."

some people do random acts of kindness... I do random acts of vocalization
