Well, here we are into another year, and I already see signs that little has changed. It seems there is a rash of tagging going on in our neighborhood, which makes me glad I don’t own a shed in the backyard or a picket fence, since those seem to be the latest targets. You can literally go down the alley each night in a row and see a new tag that’s been appied, crossed out, or a new colour. I reported it to the police for what good it does me, but what we need is a task force that goes out there with paint to cover all this crap up. I know it’s not my problem, but I would like to have a nice neighborhood.
“So why not move?” you might ask? Why should I move? I have a larger place and decent neighbors….it’s the stupid kids that blow through and deface all the places that ruin it for others. Yeah, I feel like I want to hook up a Wagner power painter with a backpack full of Kilz paint and just cover it all up, but…..realistically, it’s not my problem – but think about that….that might be the general problem in the area. Everyone says it’s not their problem, and yet the problem stands unless someone, or some people do something about it.
and don’t tell me it’s cuz of where I live, because I’ve seen it happen in other parts of town too. The problem isn’t the area – it’s the select few parasites that try and ruin it for everyone else.
