There are some SERIOUS CREEPS out there! WTF?!

We see it on the news all the time….there are some real sickos out in the world. But, we tend to get a bit comfortable in our surroundings and stop thinking about what could happen to us….

Well, I had a wakeup call that shook me quite a bit and I’m not sure what to do….

I live with my husband & our dog in a one bedroom apartment on the west side of Portland, OR. It’s a nice, clean area of town and I really love it! Our complex is great, we have been here for a year and a half and I have always felt comfortable there. People are friendly and everyone kind of keeps to themselves. But now I no longer feel safe in my home.

I did my laundry late Sunday night. When it was done, I was tired and lazy and didn’t fold my clothes and put them away like I normally do. (I wish I had, I would have noticed the problem sooner!) Monday and Tuesday were busy days and I kept putting my chores on the back burner. I finally got around to folding the clothes last night and what do I notice?

10 PAIRS OF MY UNDERWEAR WERE MISSING!

I tore the apartment apart, thinking I misplaced them, and they were no where to be found. I went to the laundry rom and searched….nothing! The laundry room is right across the hall from my apartment. (Inside hallway like a hotel) When I do laundry, I come back to my apartment and set a timer so that I can grab the clothes as soon as they are done, freeing up the washers and dryers for other residents. I HATE when people leave their clothes in either appliance for hours! So, as I recall, when I grabbed my laundry out of the dryer, they were still WARM!

What does that mean?! That it wasn’t some random encounter….someone HAD to have been watching the laundry room, waiting….or worse, WATCHING ME!! EEEWWWW!!!! My husband is out of town, 4 hours away, for work right now so I am home alone and totally creeped out! There is some pervert in my building stealing women’s underwear! EEEWWW!!! There are other women and children in my building and I am concerned about what might happen next!

I went to the managers and talked to them. They didn’t want me to post a note in the laundry room. They said “We can’t post something that says ‘stop stealing women’s underwear’ but we will be glad to type up a letter reitterating the rules.” WTF?! I WANT the other residents to know what’s going on so people pay closer attention to their laundry, I WANT them to be concerned, they have a right to know! I feel like the management team doesn’t want to ‘scare’ the other residnets or ‘make them feel uncomfortable’….I think that is BULL SHIT!!! As of this morning, there was no letter posted. I hope that there is one when I get home or I will put up my own!!

I barely slept last night…I would doze off for 30 minutes then snap awake at the smallest sounds. I am completely on edge and I don’t like it one bit!!

It’s SICK!!! I don’t know what to do!!
