Re: Are we doing too much or not enough about this?

Speaking of small places to live...

s/ Seeking advice from Trolls and Smug Armchair Experts! /s


Here's my awkward homeless question of the year:

What am I suppost to do to keep the same guy from sleeping, smoking in our building's vestibule every other night?

Background: It's a 4 unit building. We'd rather not lock the exterior door if we can avoid it since we'd have to move the doorbells.

The same guy quietly sneeks into the front door late at night (I still hear him), lays below sight of the windows and sleeps.

Not such a big deal (no harm, no foul), but...

[Trolls and hyperbolic homeless advocates, are you ready? ]

Some residents are afraid of him. Oh, and ..
HE SMELLS THE DAMN PLACE UP WITH HIS SMOKE / BODY. TALKING VOMIT INDUCING ODOR HERE.

His visits require a serious on-your-knees cleaning before I go to work: Cigarette ash removal, scrubbing / bleaching of the tiles to remove the foul odor, etc.

When calmly approached about the problem, he becomes belligerent: Today I was called a racist (yay!).


I don't want to call the police. What eles can we do?



Please, no useful advice sought! The answers I want should include some or all of the following:

? Shaming (best if it involves gentrification somehow)

? Racist / Classist accusations

??Completely useless advice

? Shrill armchair advocacy for homeless/mentally ill

? An indication I should pack up, sell the building and move to the suburbs (this one is vital)
