Do you know what DV tags are? Show some respect and help her out.

my next door neighbor happens to be an old lady with DV tags on her car. management has told me that she's supposed to call maintenance to take her trash out.

the upstairs people are young, just trashy.

there is no excuse for this type of behavior! the old lady next door FINALLY took out the trash that had been sitting out there for 9 days last night... so what does she do? puts a big bag of trash out the next day.

ive been complaining about this since i moved in. its disgusting. its a health hazard.

when the upstairs neighbors took out their trash a few days ago, they left a trail of an unknown liquid going all the way from their apartment upstairs to the dumpster.

can i call the city on this? if not, then can i call anyone or am i stuck living next to disgusting slobs til my lease is up?
If it’s a health hazard call the City Code Compliance. They will deal with management to comply
with the regulations with the young & trashy residents upstairs. The City will take action and the
issue will be resolved.

If the elderly lady needs assistance & you cannot offer to help on a regular basis. Have the
others living there to join & everyone share to help her.

It looks like maintenance is not doing their job.

You complain that the neighbors are "just trashy" yet you say just "no" about helping an old lady take her trash out? *smh* Wow. Sounds like you are in a place where you have wonderful opportunities to learn some life lessons.

If you are next door, how hard is it for you to take a few extra steps to take the trash down? Especially , when your already going down stairs. Guess it doesn't bother you that much to help out a veteran. Guess it's just the difference between generations

I have handicapped neighbors and go across the street once a week to drag their trash cans up towards their grarages, not because they are vets who served, but BECAUSE I AM PHYSICALLY ABLE TO!!!!! It is called being a neighbor to those that need assistance, and RESPECT to those that served! YOU do not deserve to be a neighbor to either!

Maybe you could sell some of your numerous cars you brag about and buy yourself a house. Still can't buy class though.

When I was a kid growing up in the Bronx in a 5 story building with no elevator, there was an ancient woman living on my floor (the 4th) who was an absolute gem of a person. She was so kind to us kids, so loving and sweet. We ALWAYS helped her carry her groceries upstairs (16 steps per flight) and she always insisted on handing us gobs of change which she had all over her house. She was adorable, truly adorable. Even if we said no to the change, she was just so happy to hand us like handfuls of coins. And she was old, I mean she must have been at least in her 80's.

Take down the lady's trash. One day you will be old if you're lucky.

When I was recently in a rehab hospital I got to the point where I could get around without assistance and routinely refused help opening doors sometimes. One day I refused a visitor's offer of assistance. He turned to me and said "You know when you refuse someone's act of kindness you are denying them a blessing". I thought about that long and hard and concluded "who am I to deny someone a blessing?" Since then when someone holds open a door or holds the elevator for me they get profusely thanked and I'm oh so serious about it. There are a boat load of people out there that have no qualms about showing kindness to those less fortunate than them, I see them everyday.

Here's hoping you sleep well at night after dissing someone disabled through no real fault of their own.

God Bless all you saints out there, YOU know who you are.
