On Today's episode of 'Downstairs Nightmares'...


Secret_lade loses a balcony... And loses her shit!

Beep! Beep! Beeeeeep!!

"WTF?!? Did someone literally pull up the balcony, on the grass, and start beeping??"

Secret_lade is standing in the kitchen, waiting for her coffee finish brewing, when she spies the tell-tale sign of headlights cruising across the backyard.

The Downstairs Nightmares are at it again!

Peering through her doorwall blinds, she watches as the driver rolls down his window have a screaming conversation with one of the Nightmares.

"What the fuck!! Are you going fucking guide back?!? You want pick this fucking thing up right the fuck now!"

Not sure what's happening, but this is gold.

"It's your fucking shit, get it the fuck out of here."

"Oh Fuck You!"

"Don't talk your fucking mother that way...."

Oh shit! Now I'm invested.... bad it's dark out and I can't see the spawn of Mrs. Wolowitz.

From here, it can only go downhill...

Without leaving her apartment, Mrs. Wolowitz has Spawn of Wolowitz pull his truck forward and starts guide him back, I'm assuming the door beneath my balcony.

Only....

Instead of pulling straight back, he's slighty off and hits the support beam my balcony, knocking it right off and into her door wall.

Glass is shattering but my balcony remains in place.

"What the FUCK is WRONG with you morons?!? There is a REASON why there isn't pavement back here!! It's NOT A DRIVEWAY!"

You guessed it! I lost my cool.

"I'm so fucking sick and tired of living above this! You don't need to bother calling the after hours emergency number, I'm doing it right now."

And, I slammed my door shut.

The after hours number is only a voicemail, thank God, because I was livid. It didn't take long for the<b> creepy </font></b>handyman to show up, though.

He was in and out of my apartment 4 times before he came to the conclusion the balcony was unsafe.

Fucktard!

The only thing holding it up is the fact that it's attached to the roof overhang...

Thankfully it's an easy fix for me, they just have to put the beam bac For the Nightmares, not so much. Handyman was peeved at being called out on a Sunday evening, he's still downstairs nailing something up over the door.

Sounds like it could be a week or before they get the door replaced.

Door needs be ordered, approvals need be gotten from the management company, and the neighbors have for it.

Sucks be them!

    There's this 'working farm', a few miles from me. Cows, pigs, chickens, horses... anyway - you get the picture.
    In the summer they'd pull all the animals outta the barn and put them in the fields. Those were separated from the humans by an electrics fence. My daughters and I would challenge that fence.
    YES - I would initiate. But we'd get electrocuted by that benign wire and laugh about it. It was a silly game we'd play.

    Plus... it hardened up my girls. lol 😂
    Did we get a jolt?
    Yep.
    Did we laugh?
    Oh yeah... big time.
    Were we sik for doing it?
    Probably.

    In any case. Lived it. Done that and heck... it was a mild buzz and such a blast.
    In winter, with gloves on - the shock was like a mosquito bite.
    I guess, ya had to be there. It was never dangerous... just stupid, silliness.
    The cows we petted and fed looked at us with quizzical eyes.

    ❗❗🍷🍷😎😂
You guys are hard core!! Lol.

    But I de-activate the fence if the kids' balls flop into the yard.
Do you let them touch it first to let them see if it's on?? LOL

My balcony is fixed, the apartment manager was still here when I got home from work. She wanted to know some of the details of what happened last night. I found out that Spawn of Wolowitz actually LIVES in the complex.

    lol, Over the weekend, my daughter who lives in a a house in a pretty nice neighborhood, took her dog for a walk in the morning only to find the house around the corner from her missing the whole front of the downstairs and crime scene tape blocking off the entire house. The only information she and the neighbors can glean is from the police report. An 18 year old female stabbed the two 20 some year male residents of the house, then went back to her car and rammed the front of the house with it. My kid is freaking out since her boyfriend works nights as a paramedic. I think she'd feel better if she knew it was personal rather than a random thing. I laughingly suggested I come live with them for a while until he gets off the night shift, but apparently her fear of me invading her private space is even greater. lol
It sounds like there is a lot more to it.... People don't just stab someone then decide to drive their get away car into the residence. Something went wrong and the girl was scorned and angry, she was mad at the males. And, my daughter would have done the same thing!!

Right now, I'm kind of sick of the whole neighbor thing. There was a time that I kind of like it, when I first moved here. There was a whole different group of neighbors and a lot of kids living living down our hall. Times have changed.

Thank God I'm not dealing with that too. Smoking pot can get you evicted here since its still illegal federally. (Not illegal per the state.)

    Have you ever considered buying house? With a NACA mortgage you need to show consistent employment, ability to pay rent, and with about $5000 down you are in the house of your choice.
I actually have been giving it some thought, it just feels like such a big step, a little intimidating.
