Well, this tested my patience. You never know what kind of moronic crap you're going to face during your day. I think I handled it well, but what's going on here is slowly escalating.
At my p/t job, we're all getting really sick and tired of the Kirby vaccum people that are two doors down from us.
It's like having da hood right next door. :mad:
They've done a lot of things, from parking everywhere they please (double-parking, parking on the sidewalk, etc), tossing garbage all over the place, taking over our private dumpsters, and collecting in large numbers outside, talking smack loudly like they're in high school. Black and white, it's not a color thing. They're all emulating thug-like behavior while dressed in suits.
I have to walk past them to get to our office. So I get to put up with the "hey, babys" the "whoop whoops" and the mean faces and huffs and puffs because I ignore them.
They know our office doesn't like their behavior and know we've called management on them several times because of the things they've done. And in turn, they don't like us and they let us know it.
Today I walked by them to get my lunch at the Gyro place that's several doors down. There's a group of them standing there, looking proper in suits and ties, and they're acting like feral juveniles again. They're in their twenties to maybe even early thirties.
I ignore them like usual, while trying to stay aware. They see me walk by, don't like the fact tham I'm not thinking they're hot stuff, so they loudly make fun of me while I go by. "Yeah, you walk on quickly now, etc." They're mad because they think we think we're better than them.
And then I hear a very loud HOCK-SPLAT in my direction, and they laugh a very taunting laugh.
I calmly walk by like nothing ever happened. But there's a reason I carry my purse crossbody so I can keep both hands free.
After I got my lunch and started to walk by again, they filed back inside their offices. One sneered at me. I told my co-workers, and my boss called management. Management apparently isn't able to set in motion an eviction yet, but she's collecting all their offenses.
