New Owners

I caught a ride back to the apartment after work as I had some items to bring back. The car park (Parking garage) is located in the basement level and you have to drive down a ramp but now before some guards will stop and double check things. Honestly how or what they are checking for I don't know.

I immediately noticed that the guards were wearing new uniforms, then I realized that I didn't recognize any of the guards at all. I knew this wouldn't be good.

My suspicions were confirmed when I spoke to Chris. Sure enough they tried to stop her this morning in the lobby and she just walked right by them. I think they got the point.

We went out to lunch later and when we returned and walked past the guard station I could hear one of them mumble something about checking her purse. We got some strange looks from them as we kept on walking by.

So we asked our faithful receptionist about the change of guards and she said that the bank and apartment building is now owned by the government. Our apartment building is attached to a high rise bank headquarters,

Today the power blinked and the new owners conducted a generator test, one of our pet peeves. I wish they would tell us when they are going to do that.

It will be interesting to see how things play out with this. I know one thing, it only reinforces Chris' desire to move to another apartment building.

More on that later.
