I live in one of the only neighborhoods in my city where street parking is still free. No meters or permits. So we have people who live in their vehicles parked bumper to bumper right in front of our first floor apartment windows.
I'm not trying to knock someone who is already down on their luck, and I am quite poor myself. But I resent the following: I have to keep my shades drawn so they don't stare into/case my apartment.
Most of the vehicles don't have mufflers so they sound like motorcycles starting up at all hours of the night. These vehicle-dwellers are often loud, especially the guy who sells drugs out of his old, shitty van.
Then there are the handful who like to use our back yard as a toilet! When confronted and asked to leave, I was told to go fck myself. I called the police but they ran away before the cops showed up.
I pay a hell of a lot of money to live here, over 80% of my monthly income. Aside from the landlord being one step above a slumlord who likes to jack up the rent but not make repairs, we have to put up with people living in vans and trucks ten feet away from our windows. We have had three burglaries in the building in as many months, and this is not a 'bad' neighborhood. At least it wasn't, until the bum caravan rolled in to town. It makes me so damn angry!
