The joys of townhouse/unit life

Velveteen Rabbit 21 April 2008 81

I live in Beechwood in Florey, a hive of 130 or so little units all jumbled in together and feel the need to have a fuddy duddy rant and ask other Canberra unit dwellers:

  • What is it with visitors parking anywhere, nay everywhere so you can’t get into or out of your garage?  I am not good at 17-point turns in order to get anywhere. 
  • Why oh why do people continue to stuff the recycle bin/normal bin when it’s overflowing?  And please, can you bag your rubbish so I don’t step on your rancid old sausages when I go past.
  • Why do people feel the need to dump their old tables/fridges/computers/kids in front of the bins?  Are we having some sort of a white elephant stall thing?
  • What’s with the doof doof music till 2am?  Just cos we share a wall doesn’t mean I want to share your interest in Metallica/Britney.  Also if your mates get into a fight, kindly tell them to bleed on YOUR side of the porch.

 Now, I feel better.  🙂

Velveteen Rabbit, sounds like you live where I do in the “New York” appartments in Queanbeyan. although I am lucky as I only rent! and yes happy to stay in the dump just because it is so hard to rent in Canberra and not get treated like dirt by some 22year old property manager, although Zoe the one I deal with does just that! Hopefully there will be huge job cuts in the public service which will make it a little easier to find decent rental accommodation and get some self centered tools out of Canberra!

Yes because your odd hatred of young people and wish list for massive unemployment makes you quite a Ghandi like figure. Not like those self centred tools…

If you own the townhouse, join the body corporate executive committee and have your say in improving the complex. I understand that you can enforce no parking areas through having parking inspectors issue fines if the area is deemed ‘public’ – you will need to talk to the strata manager about it but apparently it can be done.

Time machine would be handy too.

Danman if you knew the man in question you would have never uttered (typed) those words. I feel ill now, thanks!!

I would have used the opportunity to rub one out at the same time 😛

lemaChet – The third had very thin walls, and you could hear *everything* the neighbours said and did…

Like waking up at 1am to hear your weird next door neighbour having very loud, middle-aged s*x…. *shudder* not good to 22 (at the time) year old ears.

Hamilton, did you get kicked out of Quenbeyan for being too civilised ?

Dude, i’m in the market for a few things, can you keep an eye out for the following in your trash pile:

*3 seater sofa – preferably with no urine stains
*One of those old TV’s with the wood panel look around the outside
*A BBQ – bonus if there is a gas bottle
*Any form of food that doesn’t have mould on it, unless its cheese of course!

Cheers.

I am starting to think that maybe you two are actually in love!! The s*xual tension is bubbling off the page!!

I’d wager my life savings if you kept bringing that joke up when nobody laughs.

Mælinar Mælinar 9:48 am 23 Apr 08

Yes, troll. Flap, flap, flap.

Deadmandrinking Deadmandrinking 9:13 am 23 Apr 08

Troll???? TROLL????

No typing can describe my silent, roaring laughter.

Take a look at your comments and shut up.

Mælinar Mælinar 8:17 am 23 Apr 08

@WMD – I note that there is not an admin logo next to your login. What that means is equally, feel free to return to your hole, troll.

flap flap flap.

That wasn’t even funny once, you know…

Okay, maybe a chuckle, but that’s it.

Damn that different font….

el el 6:44 pm 22 Apr 08

No, the font’s different!

I knew you were going to say that, Tap. *rubs forehead* oahhhhhmmmmm

Maelinar..I think this post has evolved from a possibly interesting discussion over the future of housing in the ACT to an example of your utter, utter dear so utter wankery (as usual). For future reference…if you didn’t learn anything from a thread or did not have anything useful to add…uh, don’t comment on it. Simple really! And also, when you say you’re going to go away, then actually f-k off. That’s what everyone wants you to do usually anyway/

CanberraResident, couldn’t help but notice your predictions a while ago covered almost any possible response! Where did you get such foresight? I predict you either will reply, wont reply, be pleasant or unpleasant, take the high ground or have a go at me, etc… lol.
