Yesterday after I accepted the new job, and started the two week process of closing out my current work. At about 3:00 pm I get a call from a resident saying there is a fight outside and I needed to get back there. I can hear the cursing through the phone! So I get my maintenance man and we go to the back of the property.
We get there and the first thing I notice is about 10 residents standing at their doors watching this group. In the group there are 3 residents, two sisters, and one of the sister's boyfriend, who is 20 years older than her. Then there is a man who claims he is a pastor (I think he is a con artist) and his older sister. These people range from 29 to 65 years old. Old enough to know what they were doing was wrong, especially at the time kids are coming home from the bus stop!
So we go up an have to break it up, I was thisclose to calling the police. They were obnoxious an as I am trying to help one of them threatens to call and complain about me to my bosses at the main office. I told him to go ahead and I will call and tell them how ridiculous this situation is and they will never listen to him again! He is like the boy who called wolf!
I won't go into all of the details because it is a long drawn out stupid story. But it ends with the fight over and me crawling through the bushes looking for someones key (which I never found)! It also wasted two hours of our time!! So yeah...my decision was the right one.
