There is always the "Potential of being watched" in any establishment. However, one must be attuned to the subtle--"difficult to detect or analyze; barely perceptible"--as Old Man Webster defines subtlety. The perception that I was constantly being watched in Apt 123, from July 2010 thru July of 2011, was very real to me and confirming by actions of receiving emails detailing my actions inside the confinements of my personal apartment #123. This suspicion was even further confirming by having an individual mimic my movement. Without being direct, I can only say that this individual always managed to be arriving at the precise time that I exited my dwelling. Is it a coincident, since we shared the same parking lot? According to management, that was a possibility. However, even, when I deliberated went out of my way to park in another location, this individual still found a way to be in that location also. Then that individual would stare me down.
All of my complaints went on deaf ears. I left when my lease was up. Upon leaving that day, I hear that staff member agreeing to a saying by one of his neighbor in his building the following:
“I just she going somewhere where she can play now that she is not being watched”.
It has been 4 weeks past. I am now seeking to return to this place, because, the apartments are the nicest ones in the Calera area (in my opinion). So what is the problem? The problem is that I desire to be living in a great apartment, but cannot shake the inward feelings that if I return, management may be deaf to legitimate complaints I voice. You see, in speaking to management and inquiring of possibly returning. I was informed that even though i was a good renter, they have preservation about me returning and saying the things I said of my 'fear that someone on staff may be unjust'. I informed management of my perspective from a single women view and listening to her inner voices to warn off potential danger. I informed management that I will not make trouble for her staff, but I will continue to report any potential sense of danger. I placed a deposit on the same apartment. Why? I did not want to clean another apartment. No one has been in that one since I left it. Oh well.
Finally, I ran this discussion by my daughter. Needless to say, she was furious that management said that to me. That got me to thinking. Should I be furious also? I usually do not let others dispositions' derail me and have been trained to work with anyone. However, I now see it as the principle of the issues. Even though I have placed a $250 deposit on the unit, I must give this to the Lord. What will this prevail?
I am writing this review so that there will be a record of this for other to see, in the events of unforeseen occurrences.
