I yelled at the kid upstairs... His parents better hope they dont come talk to me about it....
I live in an apartment style condo on the ground floor. I have patio doors that lead to a decent size deck space and then it is grass. I was standing outside and all of a sudden a half eaten apple flies past me, following by two full and unopened things of yogurt. I look in the direction it came from and there was this kid, maybe 10-12 on the second floor balcony of the units to my right. He purposely through them in front of my yard area and not his.
What did I do you ask? I yelled are you kidding me? Then I went inside got a grocery bag, went outside and picked them up and marched upstairs to their door. I knocked and the kid answered. I asked if his parents were home and he said no, I then handed him the garbage and said "here's your garbage, you should know there is a bylaw in this city that makes it illegal to throw things off of a balcony and it is also against the condo board rules, I suggest you do not do that again" he said ok and I went on my way.
What would you do if you were me? If you came home and your kid told you what he did and what I said? No one has knocked on my door yet, but rest assured if they take up an issue with it I will let them know that moving forward the police and condo board will be called and they can be homeless.
My kid plays out there, what if he had gotten hit with something flying from up there? I dont want ds playing in a bunch of garbage, thats disgusting and unacceptable.
