Last night we got home late from the final day of SIFF. At about 2am, we awoke to a bizarre “whooping” sound coming from outside (near Aurora). Then it turned into racking sobbing by a woman. She was within 20 feet of our ground floor door. After an hour we shut the window yet could still hear her. The sobbing continued for 3 hours.
We don’t know if it was drug related, drug and rape related or what. Like a horror movie. In all my life I have never heard anything like it. The proximity to Aurora seems to invite a lot of transient life and drug dealing. No one called the police.June 8, 2015 at 2:15 pm #48490
Um, why didn’t you call the police, Sandra?June 9, 2015 at 8:30 am #48493
Gee, Sandra, wouldn’t you want someone to call the police if it were you whooping and hollering,possibly being raped, then sobbing for three hours? If it were like a horror movie for you, it must have been a reality based horror for the individual who was interrupting your evening with that pesky noise pollution.June 9, 2015 at 8:58 am #48495
A stunning irony here – going to the movies to experience drama and avoiding it when you get home.June 10, 2015 at 10:59 am #48508
I am shocked at the apathy of creativeartist11 but not surprised because of the lack of concern for others that currently exists in our society. Why you didn’t actually go the sobbing girl to offer assistance since there was no obvious threat to you due to the length of time the sobbing occurred I will never understand. The least you could have done was call 911. I hope if you are ever distressed in some manner that someone will help you.June 12, 2015 at 7:16 am #48548
Monsters. She was just another tweaker on a bad high. When is the last time any of you did any volunteer work.
Never of course. You sit while you SO brings you money. Maggots, crawling maggots.June 12, 2015 at 8:37 am #48551
“creativeartist” – you started the thread to indicate you heard a victim of a crime crying for help. When people asked you why YOU didn’t call the police, they were met with silence, until this morning, when you decided to attack those people, and their spouses, apparently, with a really weird, some would say creepy, stream of insults.
Please re-read your original post and understand that your original miscommunication of the issue is the reason you are currently feeling victimized.
I suspect this forum isn’t really a healthy place for you to hang around if you’re so offended by these rational and understandable responses. Why not just chill and stay away from the forum?June 12, 2015 at 2:28 pm #48553
Creativeartist11 you only assume that she was on a high because you did not go down to see what help she needed. And if she was on a high then you really should have gone to help her! I do volunteer work all of the time as most of us do but we don’t advertise it, so again you assume something that you know nothing about. Is there something we can do to help you? You sound like you could use some help.June 12, 2015 at 3:50 pm #48556
That is a kind and thoughtful thing to offer. However, I will not offer to help her, and I suggest it would require careful though regarding you own safety,and that of your family, before I would try to help her. She is not reality based. I do hope she receives some help.June 12, 2015 at 5:22 pm #48557
You do realize that calling the police would have (a) helped her (even if she was tweaking) and (b) improved your perceived personal safety while (c) reducing the noise that clearly bothered you, yes? I can appreciate not wanting to run out and help her yourself – that’s why we have 911. (Or non-emergency line, if you prefer.)June 13, 2015 at 10:38 am #48561
@iowagirl: just a point of interest, why do you assume creativeartist1 is female? i see you and frankie assuming her name is Sandra, but to me the “voice,” here and in other recent posts, sounds male, or at least uncertain.
the old “sandramarrion” alias identified herself as a single older female on a fixed income, but creativeartist1 consistently says “we,” as in “we got home from a movie,” and “we just bought a house on Lake Washington.” not convinced they are one and the same.
on a related note, i assumed frankie was female, until another poster recently referred to “him.” of course, multiple people may post under the same alias… the joys of anonymous interweb community!June 13, 2015 at 5:29 pm #48564
I’m a former editor. If it’s not the same person they are doing an amazing job of capturing the exact tone, cadence and voice. I sort of assumed it was a parody character, but now I’m not sure.
I’m a boy, if it matters.June 13, 2015 at 6:05 pm #48568
Actually Runyararo, You can see a post from last month where ‘Creativeartist11’ is looking for a new place to live. She describes herself as a “Non smoking woman (50) who has a fixed monthly income (retired) and a credit score of 835. Non-smoking, one sweet fixed 6 year old cat, loves to make art, volunteer, travel, very quiet and very meticulous. Social, funny,with a masters degree”
If you’re going to shame us for not doing our research, you might want to do a little research, yourself.
Also, this isn’t a school ground or work environment. No one is forcing her to be part of these discussions. The only discussions she is contributing to are the ones she has created, and can delete or edit at will.June 14, 2015 at 12:59 am #48569
“Shame?” Not sure what I said that suggested shame. I was curious to know why these two people thought the two aliases were the same person. I didn’t say anything to you at all, and definitely didn’t shame you or anyone.
Your post about the non smoking woman was the one I was recollecting. I mis-remembered the author. So it sounds like creativeartist1 is inconsistent in her content, though apparently consistent in tone enough for frankie to pick her out. Neat trick!
Your last paragraph seems unrelated to anything i posted, so I guess that’s intended for someone else.June 14, 2015 at 2:02 pm #48577
Our community is comprised of all sorts of folks, I believe we are all doing the best we can with our lives and the issues we’re facing. People post on public bulletin boards for a variety of reasons, sometimes out of loneliness or a desire for connection. We can tolerate that, can’t we? Maybe it’s just the helpful release-valve some of us need to keep going in a stressful world.
It’s a beautiful warm day with a cool breeze, the nth sunny day in a spectacular June. Gratitude for this and so much more! I’m no PollyAnna but I’ve found that focusing on life’s negatives — including discussions of other people’s posts and their personalities — does not improve my own happiness or appreciaton of life. Let’s chat about ideas and issues rather than about other people. That’s my 2 cents as a newly arrived WallyHoodian. Thank you for the welcome so far, and thanks for tolerating my views here.
