I just called the cops on my neighbor
« on: June 10, 2006, 12:12:23 AM »
ok...i got home from work... and took puppy outside for smokey and wine (SMOKEY AND WINE FOR ME BITCHES)... and she nosed her way into the neighbors apartment.   so i called at the door but didn't want to go in... (maybe he was on the toilet or something).... so i yelled for puppy and finally grabbed her 4 feet inside the door when she came over... I then shut the door. (the worry is that somebody left their apt unlocked in this neighborhood and left the door blatently open.)

Soon after I knocked on the donwstores guys door and had him come up with me to 'check it out' and make sure it was ok.... we didn't see anything amiss... and shut the door...... now being midnight and him not having returned, I got a bit skittish and called the cops to come look.  the came, they saw and they left.   nothing amiss... but did notice the door when shut doesn't latch unless deadbolted... so it may have just been an issue of leaving quickly, but i was still worried.... trying to be a good neighbor and all... i called the cops to come look.

at least he isn't dead or something.... but now i feel foolish.   but would have felt worse if something happened and i didn't call someone.

bah... i'm stupid and happy all at the same time.

That was a very good thing you did!  My neighbor across the hall was quiet for a good week..and he never goes anywhere...his bike was downstairs and he didnt have an auto.  I ended up calling my landlord after a bunch of us tried knocking and calling. Turns out he died the day before. I guess he had cancer and passed away. I felt horrible and wished we had called earlier!  I hope everything is ok!

I would have done the same thing.
My neighbor is a little older lady, and we have agreed to look out for each other.

i don't feel so bad now... at least i know he isn't dead there.

and the apartment complex maintenance guy came to look at it... but didn't have a key to lock the deadbolt... he said he'd try to find one, but i don't think he's coming back tonight.

ah well, i'll talk to them tomorrow at least if it's still unlocked.... i did everything i could tonight.  (though his big screen tv would look smashing in my apartment)... just sayin.

But he's a nice guy and if it was me, I'd want the same courtesy.

and especially since i am poz, if anything ever happens to me healthwise, I'd want somebody to check on me.

well, i'm not his friend... that's just it


but i'd expect this same level of due diligence of my neighbors if they ever found my apartment door open.  I have no personal ties to this person... and could frankly care less, but if he was sick or injured and i didn't do something, i'd feel guilty.  Or for the same matter if I left my apartment open for any reason, I'd hope my neighbors would try to protect me and my property.

People in my neighborhood do that all the time. Most of us would rather be safe and have nothing found wrong than do nothing when someone needed help. You did the right thing DingoBoi.

However, knowing you I suspect your little mind had some other motive. Probably a good shaboinking is what you really wanted! You shaboinking him or you being shaboinked by him or both (versatile) ::)

I know a horny DingoBoi when I see one!

Regardless, more people should help each other like you just did to your neighbor.

And just what would you have done if you had looked in and found this ol' Boy naked except for a leather Harness  on his hands and knees , with an open tub of Crisco next to him  and swatting himself on the ass with a jockey whip ????

update:  he's still not back yet.... I've never known him to go away for a night or two... but i've only lived here 6 months

his door is still unlocked... i'll be stopping in the office tomorrow to make sure they deadbolt it.

since it was reported to the cops and they contacted the office.... they are legally responsibile for losses now.

they sent out a guy but he didnt' have a key... I was hoping it'd be something simple like just forgetting, but he's not back yet.

2 nights away from home... for me that raises suspicions.

well, i'll get his door deadbolted tomorrow with the key by going to the office. 

i'll probably also request they call his 'next of kin' list to inquire about his whereabouts.

maybe he is staying at a partners house, or away for the weekend?

yes, could be.. but i've never known him to go away in my tenure here... of course, it's not like he'd tell me if he was, i just noticed it now.

but I just don't imagine somebody leaving their apartment unlocked (especially if they are going away for an extended period)

tomorrow to the office and i'll get them to lock it with the master key.

i really think something is wrong more than the normal plausible issues.... but there's nothing i can do about that.

but i can secure the apartment... well.. actually i can't, but i can make sure the people who can do it.

you sound like a thoughtful neightbour dingo

As for theother stuff- I gave a few of my neihbours my phone number. We had a guy who was hanging outside for a night, he was buzzing buzzers and shining torches into the ground floor flats. When the police came he scarpered

So we all gave round numbers, so if anything happened we can contact each other- I feel more secure now  :) Might be an idea to pop a number through the door for him?
