I forgot to report on Sorta's Neighborhood yesterday! Silly me. Well, the people down the block, had ANOTHER party. They have them every few months (maybe once a month, I haven't kept track) and it's noticeable because cars in droves start parking all over the place. Usually the activity starts around 10:30pm or later and continues until 4 or 5 am the next day.
This time I recorded the activity on my security camera because one of the cars unloading in front of my house had 5 young males and they had mega beer and other liquor. They were acting very weird and it turned out they emptied 2 cans of beer in the street and left the cans near my phone pole. At first I thought they were doing graffiti but it was only the littering.
So the music isn't very loud, but it's continuous, and it's 3 houses up on the other side of the street. The house is always 'blacked out'. All lights off, a RED porch light turned on, and the party is in the back yard with a tarp closing the entrance so nothing is visible from the street.
The recording I got was awesome. 10:30pm until 4am I have hundreds of cars, coming and going. It looked like rush hour on the freeway! The cars never stopped parking and u-turning and moving all over. Each car had at least 2-6 young people.
I'm sure that most of them are underage for drinking. I think it was a 'pay to drink' party where you pay an entry fee and can drink all you want. They 'issue' you a special colored plastic cup for ID. These cups were all over the neighborhood the next morning, up to 3 blocks away in every direction! Along with the cups were empty or partly empty beer, rum, vodka, tequila, etc. bottles sitting on the sidewalk, in the street and in the gutters AND in the yards of homes along the way.
From the number of cars and people and figuring 5 bucks a head 'entry' I figure these people probably made at least 5k for the night.
So the most fun was the guy who walked down to my driveway from the party with I assume his girlfriend. He proceeded to relieve himself against my hedge at 1:30 AM and again at 2:30 am and then walked back to the party. The first time, he was on his cell phone telling someone else how to find the party! Multi-tasking at its finest. They must put it on facebook or tweet it or something. No way these were just friends of the family.
I have now moved one of my 'video camera recording in use' signs right where he watered my vegetation. I'm almost sure he was the same guy who did this several months ago, only then he was with 2 other males. Ya never wanna give up a GOOD potty place right?
So next time this starts, I'm calling the cops, telling them there is an underage drinking party at that address and save my bushes. All the ground cover dies right in that spot and it frequently smells like urine. I'm pretty sure this guy lives in the neighborhood and knows the spot he likes. So rude.
So the action continues in Sorta's Neighborhood. Stay tuned for another exciting installment next time.
