I was just sitting here in the office with the windows wide open...there's a beautiful breeze and sun is shining through the window. I looked out the window to admire the plants and flowers coming up in my yard and in the neighbors' yards. When I noticed a couple of cars were double parked in front of the house next to mine.
Now I wouldn't have noticed or even minded, except THERE ARE NO OTHER CARS parked anywhere on the whole street
and they were practically parked in the middle of the road. So, I was watching these young men talking to each other hanging out of their windows. Then, one of them got out of the SUV and walked around to the driver's side of the other car. Then, they did the one hand switch. Yes, they were buying and selling drugs.
Now, this is somethig that has been going on for years. Our neighborhood is not a bad one. We have nice neighbors which span all ages. Everyone keeps their yards nice, except for the house down on the corner who we all know (including the police)is trafficing drugs. This activity has always bothered me, but this year it is really pissing me off! Maybe because the kids in the neighborhood are getting to the target age of these drug ppl. Maybe because the next door neighbor's/our friend's two year old is starting to talk and bravely walk away from his parents in the front yard. Maybe because since I'm engaged I have realized that this is where I am going to raise my kids. Maybe because I know the cops know and they haven't done much in all these years. Maybe because I'm just sick of letting this go on and on.
I don't know what to do though. All I know is that I want it to stop.
Thanks for letting me rant. If anyone has any suggestions let me know.
