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.  🙂

What’s Your opinion?

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…
