Ever since Monday, someone keeps knocking on my door real loud and taking off. They do it at all hours of the day and night. They wake me up at 2 or 3 in the morning. Last night they woke me up at 2 then at 5 and again about 9, when I was trying to sleep in a little.
A few minutes ago, they did it again. Only this time I came out of the room and heard someone down the hall so I spoke clearly enough and loudly enough and said that when I catch whomever is knocking on my door and taking off, they are going to jail. A moment later, one of the hookers stuck her head out and said it wasn't them. I told her that I didn't say it was but that when I catch the person, they will be going to jail. Then another hooker stuck her head out and tried to accuse the neighbor across the hall of doing it, which would be impossible without me hearing their door close.
Then the other one said that it came from upstairs and I said, no, it did not! It was on my door and not upstairs. I'm pretty sure it is probably them and she was pretty concerned that I was going to call LAPD. I said no but when I came back in my room, I did call the police station and told the officer on duty and asked what I should do. She said that I should call them every time it happens so they can patrol the halls and run out anyone who isn't supposed to be there.
I think that's a terrific idea! Maybe it will scare the drug dealers and prostitutes out of the building. This morning when I called the police about the Mexican couple who keeps sleeping in the stairwell and having sex in the stairwell, we missed them by a minute but the guy left his underwear in the stairwell.
Something good did come out of it, though. The police caught one of the hookers smoking dope in the hall and took her away! Yippee! I've just had all I'm going to put up with around here.
It should be interesting to find out how people react when I go to court and take out the Restraining Order on my neighbors on Monday. It should be interesting to see how many people disappear from the building when they find out their buddies won't be allowed within 100 yards of me.
