  •  I've basically been blessed not to have lived (7+ / 0-)

    in apartments too often---and other than my recent experience; hope not to have anything similar to what I've read so far...

    There are a lot a crazy folks out there....Though I believe 90% are really good folks..

    •  The werewolf had a sad story (4+ / 0-)

      Apparently he'd been a rather brilliant academic, but his physical and mental condition began to deteriorate and losing his mother was a huge blow that he never really recovered from. He has since died, I don't know what from, and left the landlord holding the bag for considerable repair costs in both of the units he'd lived in (water damage, mainly).

      I had another mentally ill neighbor in a place where I lived in Chicago--a paranoid schizophrenic who spent a lot of time screaming at her parents (who were not physically present). She became very suspicious of the guy whose apt. was between hers and mine, and sometimes would get very agitated and emerge repeatedly to body-slam his door and scream at him about his supposed intrusions into her apartment while she was out. She was a deal scarier than the werewolf, but again, it was clear that she was suffering.

      I've lived in a lot of apartments (and still do), and most of my neighbors have been tolerable to pleasant--but even the crazy ones are much preferable to some of the dangerous, evil, criminal ones people have been described in this thread.
