Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

The Things Apartment Folk Will Do To Prevent The Inevitable

Posted 10-25-2022 at 08:30 PM by case44

Maybe you have someone like what I'm about to describe in your apartment complex. Provided, of course, you live in one instead of a house.

The powers that be at your writer's complex are trying to finish up a striping project in the parking lot. Now, that can't be too much to ask, is it? Well, as it turns out, one resident still can't move his car out of the same space he'd been parking in since..............well, I can't remember the last time he or she had that car out of that specific spot. For some reason, for as many weeks as I can remember, that car has never left that spot. Next to it is an unpainted space divider stripe. That's right, unpainted. All the others, if not most, have already been repainted with a beautiful, fresh shade of white. One that I know of still hasn't.

Come on now, it's not like people haven't been told or warned ahead of time that certain parts of the apartment complex were going to receive new coats of paint at a certain time. Even a map of the complex with the dates and markings appeared in the leasing office group's e-mail to the residents. Your writer knew. Other folks knew, too.

But not one in particular.

Doesn't that just drive you crazy?? When a resident can't cooperate with all other residents, it just muddies up the waters. Things, then, don't get done. What should the rest of us do in the meantime? Invite evil demons to beckon the car? Flick a booger on the driver's windshield? Beg the leasing office to fine the guy (or gal)?

Look, I know it's between the office folks and the resident in question. I get that. There could be something going on that maybe we don't know. Whichever the case, we just need to convince this resident.......

......to just, pretty please, move your car to another place in the parking lot? Just for one day. I promise we won't throw eggs. We promise....

    I know the feeling. Just that last space and the one person you want to move doesn't. Maddening.
