hobos

I’ll be honest, one of my least favorite things about this marina is the amount of homeless or sketchy people hanging around. I know which areas to stay away from by now, but my tactics are not entirely hobo-proof.

A neighbor beat me into the shower this morning so I went to another dock known as the hobo bathroom. It’s open to the public, but the showers require a key for access. As I was showering, a homeless lady came in to the bathroom. At first I thought she was puking, then I thought she was possibly giving birth. The noises went on for sooo long. I could tell something was up, so instead of using the mirrors outside the shower to get ready, I got ready inside the shower area. As I left, I was surprised to see that there was no blood/puke/diarrhea/new born baby to be seen. Just an older homeless lady, unsure of what I would say when she asked me to hold open the door for her. I didn’t even hesitate when I said “no”, and she proceeded to call me a bunch of nasty names. Yep, I really am a bitch aren’t I? Apparently she “just get out of the hospital”. I mean, really.

It amazes me that there are so many people who won’t work for shit, yet demand access to your own personal spaces. And this is just another day in the neighborhood!┬áThe photo below is the least weird thing I’ve seen in the hobo bathroom.
