I do believe Aldo said smoking would only be allowed after 9 PM.
Something for everyone - he's got the right idea here.
I agree with johnterrell88, who wrote: "Go outside to breathe the fresh air if you don't like the smoke.... It's for 21 and over so be an adult....either join us or go to the other 99% of the restaurants in town where we're NOT welcome and you are."
Oh, that gravy.......
Another way to look at it from a "landlord perspective": "You're a grown-up - I'm not your daddy." If you own your home, you don't call your mortgage company when your neighbor's having a party. A mature adult will at least attempt to solve their own problems before expecting someone else to step in and fix their life for them. My residents seem to understand that, and it almost always takes care of their problem, whatever it may be. I'm just suggesting that people at least TRY to solve problems with their own neighbors before bringing in "authority figures". I never said I wouldn't get involved if that doesn't work. But then, I was never the type to go running to the teacher if someone called me a name on the playground, either.
I own a number of rental units in Midtown, and I rent mostly to college students. I have been BLESSED with good residents, but problems do occasionally arrive. However, when they do, in almost every case, they have been very successfully resolved by the residents, among themselves. Yes, it's "my house", but it's THEIR home. Except for the roaches, which are a great concern to a good landlord, squabbles and inconsideration between neighbors is best handled without dragging the landlord or the police into it. I know that sometimes a resident has to get others involved, but I suggest not doing that until conflict resolution has at least been attempted face-to-face with the source of the problem. I've found that doing otherwise, in most cases, tends to escalate things unnecessarily. "Revenge" is sometimes attempted in the form of the other party the calling the landlord or the police needlessly to report the person or persons who reported THEM. That's not a good outcome, and it solves nothing.
Didn't the Pippin get sold at auction ?
But then, the Fords are all elected officials......
And it's possible that one day, we might have a Sheriff Ford.
Just thinking out loud.
Tracking sex offenders (thousands of them) would no doubt be simpler if the cops didn't have to respond to "crap calls" such as, "My son/daughter is refusing to go to school", and "My neighbor's dog is releiving itself in y flower bed".
We get what we pay for, and we pay for what we demand. That's where a lot of the (our tax) money and resources are going.
