Going to vent for a second. We have a condo... right now any way. We pay our mortgage and have a $235.00 HOA fee monthly. Which pays to keep up the grounds around our home, the playground, the trash and the pool. It has increased from $175 to $235 over the course of the last 4 years because of morons that rent a condo and eff up the area or throw furniture into the pool or graffitti on the playground. IT MAKES ME SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ANGRY!!!!
Kellen and I walk to the mail box almost daily and then I usually will let him play on the playground before we head home. Today, there were 5 kids with a DOG in there (using extremely foul language) with the door proped open!!! (The key must be used to get in and out). Kellen of course wanted to go in and there was nothing stopping him from walking in. I let him go in and touch the water, and then on our way out I closed the door behind us. I locked them in, so they will either have to find someone with a key to get out, or climb out. Either way, they weren't supposed to be in there and I was so frustrated! The key to the pool gets damaged then those that actually pay their HOA have to pay for it!!! Uhhhhh!!
