    And yes, the joke was all kinds of wrong! Ewww! But never say never, because someone WILL or has already done it

    Lol DSS!

    Unfortunately we're not game to approach anyone in this building ever, we already have AVOs against a couple of other residents for assault (which followed months of verbal abuse). That's the kind of quality tenants we're surrounded by! Sigh.
    I might ask the council though, thanks - they're already really good with getting junk quickly removed from around the building and street. We already tried real estate and strata but they really don't care about anything that goes on in this building.

    Anyway, DP went and snatched back a couple of his old shirts that had his name on them but they can keep the rest. Hopefully they won't notice anything different! And we'll just be extra careful with what we throw out now.

    wow, just weird. I would simply pick up the bags that you had already binned, and walk around the block and put them in a council bin on the side of the road. I couldn't hack knowing that someone had my old stuff, that was fully intentional for the bin. If they see you and have the nerve to ask you what you are doing. Say excuse me, but if wanted to pass this rubbish on, I would have donated it to the Salvos, plus there is some rotting meat and prawns in there, which I don't not wish to have wafting in my window.

    Seriously, that is so strange. And they have shamelessly added it to their junk pile? I'd feel weirdly invaded.
    Just our of curiosity, are these your neighbours?

    It sounds like hoarding.
    People who hoard think/feel differently about "stuff" than most people do.
    It's complex and not easy to treat.
    It's not much help but for security sake, I wouldn't throw personal papers in a general rubbish bin. Shred them. Protects you from identity theft.
    Is there a building manager you can speak to? A collection of cr@p is also a significant fire risk in apartment buildings and needs to be sorted for everyone's protection.
    Don't even get me started on rodent activity common in hoarding situations!
    As for the marital aids, I dunno! Maybe pop some anti bacterial wipes in their letterbox next time you're walking past?

    I'd totally prefer Cletus and Brandine as neighbours! They seem like innocent, good hearted yokels at least.

    It's such a hazard! Even worse is that 'the pile' actually blocks off part of the corridor so if there was fire, people would struggle to get past. We're lucky that our apartment has easy access to a different exit.
    I shuddered at the rodents but I'm not too worried as we also have the equivalent of this lady living on this floor to fight against those...

    My first thought was they must be hoarders.
    If you report them to the council they can order them to remove the junk.
