It’s never worth it

To set the stage: I’m coming from my brother’s wedding this past Friday. It was a great day – sure, it snowed and was very cold, but it was a good day nonetheless. I’m coming home at about 1:00 a.m.

Witness to the crime: As I’m getting to the second floor of my apartment building, there is a strong scent of pot. My neighbors’ door is open, and I’m hearing an unmistakeable party inside.

Being a good citizen: I call the cops. These particular neighbors had been partying for two nights prior to this night. I’d called the cops about a week ago, and they weren’t able to break up the party somehow, so I hadn’t called again until this night.

The disappointment: The cops show up. I let them in, and wait to hear their knock at the next door. I hear it, then nothing. I look out my bedroom window (where I won’t be detected). Sure enough, the cops left because my neighbors didn’t answer their door. I hear them standing on their balcony as usual.

A small victory: The cops do ticket a pickup truck that’s parked in front of the fire hydrant.

Missed opportunity: At the same time both cops are involved in ticketing that pickup, two men come home in an SUV. They’re obviously having a tough time parking. They get out, and neither can walk in a straight line they’re so drunk. The cops do not notice.
