Unbearable Man Refuses To Share Hallway Key With Neighbors In A Dangerous Neighborhood

Living in an apartment complex can come with its own set of challenges, especially when it comes to neighbors. A man, who we’ll call ‘Trent’ shares his story about refusing to share keys with neighbors.

“So I recently just moved into my new apartment complex less than 60 days ago,” Trent said. “There are only 4 units in my complex, two downstairs and two upstairs. I reside downstairs in the second apartment.”

“Everyone here has lived here for at least 5 years whilst the oldest resident has reside here for 8,” Trent continued. “Everyone knows everyone and has been good friends with each other for as long as each one has been a resident. Everyone in my building has children besides me majority are single mothers, I am the only man.”

Hallway Doors Left Unlocked

Trent says there is an unspoken agreement between the rest of the tenants that the hallway door is to never be locked. Other residents do not lock the hallway doors, however, Trent has been locking the hallway door since he arrived. “From my knowledge no one in the building has a hallway key just the keys to their apartments. The cost to replace a key is $70 for each quoted from my landlord.”

“Each time I leave and come back from my complex I always lock the hallway door. My neighbor that works night shifts has arrived home for the past couple of weeks to a locked hallway door which is a surprise to her given that the door hasn’t been locked for years.”

“Apparently everyone lost their key their first year or so living in the complex,” Trent says.

Knocks In The Middle Of The Night

“I will hear continuous knocking and banging until someone comes to open the door,” Trent said. “The first few nights I woke up and got up to unlock the door. After the first week, I stopped getting up to unlock the door.” Trent said that if one of the neighbor isn’t home or doesn’t wake up to come to the door, the person outside will knock and bang on every window and yell until someone comes open the door.

Request To Leave Door Unlocked

One of Trent’s neighbor recently asked him to leave the door unlocked since it has always been that way. “I expressed that because we live in a dangerous neighborhood, rated one of the top 5 most dangerous in our city, I feel more safe knowing strangers can’t enter the building,” Trent said.

“While she understood my concerns, she assured me that no one ever comes here but residents and invited visitors and my safety is not in jeopardy. I had to beg to differ.”

Neighbor Asks To Borrow Key

Trent’s neighbor then asks him if she can borrow his key so she can make a copy and others can get a copy as well. “I politely declined because I wasn’t comfortable with that. She offered to pay me to make a copy myself in which I also declined.”

Cold Neighbors

Recently Trent’s neighbors have been cold to him and he is confused why. “For the past week my neighbors has barely spoken to me. We usually say good morning to each other and chat a little or just a hi and bye even but not even that nowadays.” Trent also notes that a woman who usually comes to share goods with the neighbors recently stopped coming by his apartment, which makes him think they are upset with him.

Others Don’t Agree With Trent

Others weigh in and say Trent is at fault. “You live in a dangerous neighborhood and are making it so your female neighbours are trapped outside at night. You aren’t participating in letting them in despite knowing you locked them out. And you refuse to get them a copy of the communal door key even though they are happy to pay for it.”
