A note from my apartment complex

When you live in apartment complexes you get notes from the complex to all of the residents. That's normal. However, I'm willing to bet that you've never received one quite like this final paragraph in our last public note from the office.

"Back to domestic issues. Recently, there have been residents arguing in the parking lot. You know who you are and we know who you are. This kind of "Low Budget" Juvenile behavior will not be tolerated. So next time you decide to act like a fool, when you finish go back into your apartment, pack your stuff and leave. This isn't the place for you. If you fail to do so we will put you out. There are hard working residents, families, and "real" people who don't want to deal with you or your drama. We don't either..... "

For the record, we have no idea who they are referring to. And we like our primarily Hispanic apartment complex. The note, though? Man... it's just hilarious. Why is "real" people in quotes? What exactly IS "Low Budget" behavior? If this person knows who they are, why did we all receive their personal reprimand? I better stop, but I just think it's so funny...

Ha, he stopped short of saying "white trash." He's referring to that stereotype though.

They're Hispanic? THAT'S hilarious then. I needed that context because, on the surface, this just looks like a classy apartment complex telling some of the low-brow, public-arguing types to not annoy the quiet rich old folk.

Also: You took the words out of my mouth about the leg toning. I was swimming and only swimming for two weeks and lost most of the tone I'd gotten from jogging. So I'm making myself jog at least twice a week.

Swimming is so much easier though! You get your heart rate up and instead of being pounded into a hard surface, you're stretching and gliding. *sigh*
