I live in Glendale, and you know what THAT means! ARMENIANS! LOTS OF THEM. However, I feel that my block is special. I just graduated from college so i'm still living with my parents; thus, i live in a pretty nice neighborhood where there not just ANY Armenians, but WEALTHY Armenians. I'm constantly surrounded by them...all day...all night. and i say all night, because my house is on the corner of two streets and has recently become the hang out spot for various 16 year old Armenian couples, who like to park right outside my house and make out/have sex/drink beers/smoke pot(if they're cool) in their cars. Oh by the way, how does every Armenian teenager own a BMW? It's astounding really. I had never seen so many damn BMWs, until my parents moved to Glendale. Anyways...it's not that i don't like Armenians. I've never had a negative experience with one, and i fucking love Zankou Chicken. And i'm definitely not against making out, having sex, drinking beers or smoking pot in BMWs. I love all that shit. But when the 16 year olds start leaving their empty beer cans all over our front yard and then proceed to race their friends in their speedy little beamers in our residential block, waking up the entire neighborhood with the sounds of loud engines and screeching brakes, then i get a little pissed.
All of this being said...i'm not going to do anything about it, because
1. if i called the cops on them, they'd probably retaliate on my parents' house by teepeeing us (or something else a 16 year old would do) and the thought of my parents cleaning up toilet paper is just sad
2. calling the cops is a total pussy move, because cops just suck in general, and
3. i really dont care THAT much.
so thats what came to mind when i starting thinking about my block.
