When I was telling someone recently about our neighborhood (100% pre-planned community, super strict HOA, zero tolerance for variations in exteriors — you have to apply for a permit to plant flowers if they’re visible to the public, etc.) they laughed and said ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I THOUGHT THAT WAS A JOKE ON WEEDS ABOUT THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD. It’s not a joke. I think the Weeds neighborhood is based on ours.
Anyway, the latest update: we got a phone call last night from the police department to warn us that TWO cars had been broken into last night within the city limits! Police were unclear if the two burglaries were related but were calling ALL RESIDENTS to remind us to lock our car doors because both burglarized cars were unlocked and had iPhones in them, which were stolen.
I can relate. I have some celery that is doing that Neo-in-the-Matrix thing with my dental floss.
