Storage Horror’s: The End

July 24, 2019 | Lifestyle | No Comments

Moon border

       Now for the moment you have all waited for, the real tea of working in storage. Let me tell you about all the horrible situations I had to go through on a daily basis. Well not all, but some of them. This one is a long one since I will end the series here, but I promise its worth it! I included pictures! 

Moon border

       Let me start by saying that when you initially go in to apply, interview, and start there they mention that it will be light cleaning work. Which meant you had to clean the office, the restroom and the units and you think to yourself really how dirty can it all be. They don’t tell you that you will have to deal with the most disgusting situations, nor do you get trained to deal with them, they just throw you into it and you gotta hope for the best.

      The people who rented at that location, and the passer bys were the most vile, I had ever encountered. Finding pee at this location was the daily norm. Bottles overflowing with urine, the smell alone would nauseate you. You would find pee on top of belongings, box’s and all you had was gloves and pray that none would fall on you. Nothing was safe, you had to assume that everything had pee! There was no way it could be tea or any other liquid. You would find it in ziplock bags, and the worst of it all would be when I found it inside a kids pencil box. I’ve had pee all over me and I would die on the inside. People pooped inside trashcans too!

       The worst of it all, is the poop. I had to go in to work fearing that it would be another shitty day. You don’t get taught how to deal with this, you don’t get warned, you’re just expected to do it with gloves and what ever your wit can think of. Naturally I couldn’t even deal with it, I was puking inside my mouth and of course always got chewed out for not doing it. 

        There was a day in which my coworker and I had to deal with it and we had never been subjected to such grotesque work.  We both agreed to do it together, since we wouldn’t dream of doing it alone. We had to get smart, we decided we would get a broom and push it all into a container. Safe to say, we tried but couldn’t finish the job, and then I vowed I would never attempt to do that again. Tough Shit because we had chronic shitters to deal with. They would do it anywhere! in the halls, in the corner, in the parking lot, anywhere! It was a real nightmare! Someone had suggested that the best way to deal with it is to grab it all with cardboard, but for that you’d have to get up close and personal. No thank you!

        This job should really provide a disclaimer, or at the very least the proper training for the job! You can find pee in these images, and I used to have many others.

        At another location, they had a woman who would always clog their toilet. They banned her, all for her and her daughter to show up at their parking lot demanding entrance. The worker who found them had to witness the mother crouched down with a paper bag and you guessed it, she was taking a shit! But thanks to this encounter, I got to hear my favorite quote that came from the daughter. “If you’re gonna treat my mom like an animal, she’s gonna shit like one!” haha the best thing I’ve ever read of an encounter for that company and I will never forget it.

Moon border

       I have another poop story for you guys, and I think this one is probably the worst one. So we would always have problems with our toilets/plumbing. People were always shoving things down the toilet that they shouldn’t like a towel, socks, etc. This all eventually caused our sump pump to stop working. It was out for weeks, almost months and we had to deal with so many pissed off customers. The basement where it was located, smelled terribly. I hated being down there and I felt bad for the customers that rented down there.

       It got to the point where it started to leak and you guessed it, shit and piss everywhere. At first the leakage was small, but then it started to go into the units next to it causing the clients things to get damaged. The higher up’s did not want to tell the client the truth. His very expensive and vintage comic books were ruined, his couch ruined, and everything in there was probably ruined. He was told that it was just a leak, shady shit.

      As luck would have it, it kept happening to the point where the truth had to be known. To a point where we were ordered to close off the basement, it was deemed unsafe to enter. The leakage was worsening day by day. Not even people who were hired wanted to deal with the horror’s they found in the basement.  There was shit and piss everywhere, I will never be able to free my mind of the images, the smell. 

      Higher ups forced me and others to go down there and attempt to clean it, when it was deemed unsafe and after hours. No protection other than the thinnest face mask, and gloves. No other protection, other than a warning to try and not get any on you. Only vacuums and mops to assist in the cleaning. 

      I did as much as I was able to, at the end of it all, my will had died. I told myself that I could not put up with the things I went through on the daily. I went to my coworkers apartment that night and drank and tried to forget. Her and I took a stand and told higher ups we would never do that again, when it was unsafe, and we wernt trained or prepared. 

      The sump pump kept leaking and the legal team for the company advised us not to get near it, after being forced to do it before. The company had a cleaner come in once and never again. The person in charge said why higher someone when we were there and could do it for free. A terrible idea, but I nor my coworker helped out as much as it was hinted for us to help out. I’m traumatized.  

      These photos are when the issue was just beginning, it only got worse, thank your eyes that I didn’t get a photo.

Moon border

       Drugs were a big thing at that location, and again we were not warned, prepared, or trained. You would constantly see the tiniest ziplock bags all over the floor. You would constantly find needle caps and the worst, the needles. You never knew where they would be, and there was the constant fear that you would accidentally get pricked.  You had to clean the units and that’s when you would fear it, with the thinnest gloves.

       In the photo below you can find some of the needles that were found in an abandoned unit. Some where in bags, others just laying around, with other drug paraphernalia. The facility had no bin or procedures on what to do with them. When reaching out to higher ups, they said to just put them in a box, in a room until they say other wise. They remained there still when I left, someone could very well harm themselves and get sick.

Moon border

         Everything that could go wrong with that place did. Their elevators would always stop working, customers would get trapped plenty of times. Their gates never worked to keep the facility safe. Their office doors didn’t even have the proper mechanism to help it close safely. It slammed on my finger cutting into it, it was agonizing pain. The AC stopped working for over 3 months and we were forced to work in the blazing heat.

        The photos under are the makeshift things we had to do to keep slightly cool. A small AC unit that couldn’t even cool half the office, everyday we had to pull this in and out. One day that I did, the wind forced the door shut on my finger. I still have a bump/scar from it, and I was forced to work through the pain afterwards. 

       Peep my stitches and my Frankenstein finger at the end too, luckily I didn’t lose it!

Moon border

      In continuation to things constantly breaking, let me tell you about one of the biggest hazards and safety issue. The staircases in the facility are unsafe. The wheels are coming off, they wobble when you’re on them and they are falling apart! Especially after higher ups had a worker modify them when it is not OSHA approved. It got to a point where someone actually got hurt! They were lucky that it didn’t turn into a big thing. Higher ups did nothing but hide the really messed up ones in units, or try to make the rest of them less noticeable but still kept them on the floor because buying new ones was way too expensive.

Moon border

       Safety was a huge issue, there were incredibly violent characters. I have had people threaten me countless times, I had called the police more times than I can count. I have had a man walk into the office and close the door behind him without saying a word. I have had people come up to me and tell me they were planing to hit me if I called the police. I have had to see a man run from another into our office because he was going to get stabbed. These are just some of the instances of many. 

       Let me tell you about two of the most notable situations. This one I happened to see on the surveillance camera, before I had started working there. An elderly man on the floor on his back, unable to get up to his walker. Another man starts to beat him, drag him and abuse him for a while. The man grabs the one on the floors shopping cart and pushes it into the elevator and leaves with it. He then comes back and drags the old man into the elevator, he then grabs his walker and starts beating him with it. It shifts to another camera view, now they are at ground level and the altercation is still happening. Plenty of people just pass by, until someone finally decides to chime in and call the police.

       Occurrences like this happen often, the place has no security. The only security shows up at 10/11pm sometimes, to just peek through the floors and leaves. They don’t properly check the floors. The employees serve as the security from 9:30-6pm, but that leaves the other hours open. Employees can’t walk the floors constantly with all the other work they have to do. Plus they are short staffed, two people or 3 if you’re lucky to take care of all 4 floors. 

       Security camera’s are limited and are only at certain areas that do no good with security. The higher ups don’t want to pay for more camera’s or security so everyone who rents there is basically unsafe. Employees can’t even carry anything for self defense.

       Another instance is when I got called, after hours. I had to go to work in my PJ’s because the police were called. This wasn’t the first time. I arrive at the scene with trash all over the floor and a man on the floor, shirtless with his gut hanging. Apparently he had slashed the tires of all the vans, and buses because he thought they were going to kidnap his girlfriend. All these cars belong to people who rent there. This man had a track record for violence. He had put dents into unit doors, in fits of anger. He constantly had domestic disputes. This man was just a ticking time bomb for worse to happen. 

Moon border

       Let’s end this with a bang and continue on with safety. Theft was a big part, it constantly happened. There was people who would use make shift fishing poles to fish items out. There was an incident where a man broke a woman’s car window’s, stole her phone, wallet, etc. He then claimed that he thought it was his aunts car. 

       The worst one by far was done by a woman named Alicia, she looked perfectly normal. She committed a series of thefts, for months. Units were broken into, locks broken, and replaced with new ones. Things went missing and were found in other units. We knew it was her but there was nothing that could be done unless she was actually caught in the act. 

       The lack of security and the lack of cameras made it very difficult to catch her. It went on for months, and we constantly had to deal with the customer’s who were affected. It didn’t help that the locks they had used were easily breakable, it didn’t help that they had no insurance or the least amount with valuables stored and stolen.

      Countless nights were spent trying to catch her in the act, I had to go after hours. The cops would not arrest her or place her under a tress pass warning unless she was caught in the act. Eventually our late nights paid off and she was caught stealing more items and was arrested. Apparently she does this as a profession, island hops and always gets away with it.

Moon border

        That is the end for now, thanks for reading this really long post and enjoying the pictures. This place should really be shut down, it’s a hazard. If you ever get offered a job there, flee! Make sure you check out the places you’re looking into renting! I probably have PTSD from working at this place. 😪

Storage Horror’s: The Tenants (Pt. 1)

July 10, 2019 | Lifestyle | No Comments

Moon border

       Hello everyone, I’m back with more storage stories! In this part I will tell you about all the crazy people I encountered working there, these are some of the most notable one’s in my memory. I can’t fit everyone so it’ll be broken down to the next blog.

       The storage facility I worked at was made up of 4 floors, the ground floor being the parking lot where you can store vehicles. The Basement that is non climate controlled (it’s fuckin hot!) and full of spiders. Third floor that has all the businesses and decent people. The second and fourth floor both have ground units, and units above those that require a stair case to access. These two floors hold all the questionable clients due to the smaller upper units that are easy to afford. 

        Let’s start off with people I’ve encountered that did not rent with me. There was a woman who every morning was found with a tent in front of our door. Asking her to move was always a huge fuss. I once was the first to get there, I saw her tent and naturally went to go look for her. The tent was empty, she shouts at me “Get the fuck away from there” Granted that it is way too early to deal with this crap, I told her that she was the one that needed to go away.😂 She giggles and says “Oh haha ok” She was such a weirdo, my other co worker always got into shouting matches with her. But the one who really takes the cake of crazy, is who I named “Marble nipples” I have plenty stories about this woman. 

         So marble nipples, is a small old shriveled woman who has lost all her marbles. She hangs out by the storage facility almost every day, and grumbles while flailing her arms at people. I’ll start with the story as to why she gets the name. A client walks into my office and informs me that there is a woman passed out on the side of the building, whose exposed, the client is naturally worried. I got worried to, who knows what can happen to this woman while asleep.

          My dumb ass, decides to go check and there she is. Asleep on a chair, next to her shopping cart, with her bikini top pulled down to expose her chest and there they are……The biggest nipples I had ever seen, as big as marbles. 😂 The name just stuck after that……I woke her up and she grumbled, and I asked if she needed medical help. She declined, I went back inside and next thing I know she’s fuckin picking up my plants from the root. I had to call the police on her and the poor young man was telling me he hopes she goes into someone else’s section because he’s tired of dealing with her ass.

          These arn’t even the worst of them, she would legit throw her cart into my parking lot in hopes that it would hit one of the cars, I always had to go get her and escort her out. She even once walked up to my managers car putting something on her windshield wipers, I went outside to confront her and she ran. I caught up to her enough to hand foam pieces back to her and demanded she take them with her. Even so this still isn’t the worst one.

            The reason why she is so horrible to deal with is the reputation she has built for herself, she comes with a warning. Never get close to this woman, you never know what she is going to throw at you. You could be lucky enough to get water thrown at you or it could be worse. I’ve seen a customer stand by her not knowing, at the time I didn’t either and I was talking with another client. She then comes closer to the man and dumps a liquid on his white shoes, lucky for him it was water. The man I was talking to advised me that he has seen her throw worse at people. 

        I didn’t really believe she could do worse until one day a man who rents a parking space came in. He was furious and I had no idea why, until he told me that someone vandalized his limo, he showed me photos of his limo full of stickers. I offered to look at the video but there wasn’t much I came up with. A couple weeks after he came in again with another video and photos, this time it wasn’t stickers…….it was piss and shit. I really wish he didn’t show me, it was horrible! I looked at the surveillance and behold, it was marble nipples! In the video she’s walking on the side walk while pushing her cart, she turns to look at the limo but keeps walking.

       Marble nipples decides to stop half way, with a cup in hand and walks up to the limo, she then tosses the contents of the plastic cup onto the limo.😪 Beware if you ever see an elderly woman in a bikini top who grumbles, she’s armed!😂

        Gym Birthday Suit, that is really his name on his ID. He was a strange man who we had no choice but to rent to, on his first day he was wearing a jump suit and a hello kitty back pack. On that day we didn’t rent to him for the simple fact of not having identification, but he came after with the papers needed. This man always wore outlandish outfits, crazy striped pants with holes, a Dracula cape, and the best one a bunny suit from a Christmas story. He stored the craziest things in his unit, trash, strange outfits, mannequin heads and other body parts, weird statues and so much more. I noticed because he would always leave his unit door open, he had so much that he couldn’t even close it anymore. There was a time where he left all his things outside in the parking lot and was upset when most of them were taken including his machete. (scary) He also went through a phase where he would steal our fire extinguishers.

Moon border

             Michelle, my first encounter with this woman was when I had seen her with her boyfriend. He was obviously an abusive toxic person, you can just tell by the way she would act around him. She would wear long sleeves and shorts, in this heat there is no way she could be cold, she was hiding her bruises. One day she came into my office crying, asking me if there was any way we could deny access to her now ex. I obviously wanted to help her, we changed everything needed to keep him away from her, I also offered my help. I let her know that at any time, if she needed me to help her out of a situation she just needs to give me a signal.

            She went back upstairs to her unit and I saw her boyfriend come into the parking lot. I could see him on camera, attempting to get access and got denied. You could see this man start to get mad and paced everywhere as he got on the phone. He then came into the office demanding to know why his code was not working, I went on to tell him that he was not on the account, there for I could not give him any information. He stormed out and got in his car, she came down rushing to his car and then became the shouting match. He got off the car and followed her, it really looked like he was out to hurt her. 

         Of course I was ready to intervene with a call to the cops, but he went back in his car and drove off. After this I felt for the girl, eventually she forgave him and there they were together again. Until they got into their next altercation. My office phone rang, it was her crying asking me to come up and help her, I rushed to her aide to find her inside her unit.

        She was 6/7 feet off the ground on the top unit, she told me that he had left her up there and purposely moved the stair case so she could not get down. The floor was filled with items that he spread out all over, and he left our cart untended in the parking lot for anyone to take.(They cost over 700) After she was calm, I told her he no longer had access to the facility, next time I saw him I was going to have him escorted out by police.

         Time passed and I saw this small innocent woman change, she was now a junkie. Always falling asleep, even while having a conversation, and she would get irritated randomly. She started loitering in her storage unit for hours on end hogging one of the very few stair cases. She would also close her unit door, to more than likely do drugs. While her young son of probably 3/4 played on the ground level. When I’d ask her to open her door, it was always a battle that never ended well.

Moon border

       Now on the drugs topic there are so many situations, and people I encountered that abused. I’ll talk about two for this one, Yong and Kuntz. Yong was a man who seemed normal to begin with, it didn’t start until after where everything started to unravel. Ultimately we had to stop renting to this man for his over the top stunts. I caught this man with a fire going on in his unit, him and his girlfriend were smoking crack. I had to call the cops on him on multiple occasions. This man was already known for being on drugs, violent, and you never knew what he was going to do.

        On my many patrols, I saw him sleeping with his girlfriend on top of a table, I tried to wake them up with no success. They were obviously already strung out. No one could wake them, the cops had to come and wake them up. He was arguing with the cops and resisting. Yong was notorious for bike theft as well and apparently he also had warrants. Eventually we were able to kick him out, and never heard from him again.

        Kuntz, A woman I had not heard of until the name was brought up to me and I found it hilarious. There was no other way to describe her, but a CUNT. She was another junkie, the manager even caught her shooting up in the restroom and denied her any future access to them. Kuntz had track marks all over her body and was always a pain to deal with. 

        There was a time where her and her boyfriend, he looked perfectly normal and in tune with his senses. They both decided to attend an auction, and even bought some. She thought it would be a good idea to place all the items/trash into an empty unit so that they wouldn’t have to deal with it. We brought it to her attention, so she did the next big thing and left all the items outside the elevator and in front of the dumpster gate. A terrible idea with the people that pass by the facility, the following morning the items and trash were scattered everywhere. Kuntz was pissed when we called her, told her we saw the surveillance after she tried denying it was her, and told her she had to come in to clean it all up or we would charge her a cleaning fee. Instead of cleaning it herself, she made her boyfriend do it, it was still satisfying to see them clean it all up.😂

Moon border

         I’ll end this with Pikake, the storage prostitute. She was a quiet woman who was also paranoid. She constantly brought different men up to her storage. She’d run into our bathroom, with a tooth brush in hand without a word. You could hear her spitting in our bathroom, her mouth was full. haha I even found a box of condoms by her unit, so at least she was being safe. She was even caught giving a man a blow job in the parking lot. Thankfully, I never caught her in the act. 😂

       Elfen Lied is one of the gems I watch again every couple years, a classic.👌🏻 I recently re watched this series a couple weeks ago, and although I’m sure most of you have already seen it, there are probably the 1% who hasn’t. So this is for you babies! I love the series, things get fucked up really quickly, it’s a super dark anime. A lot of feels are in this series. If you like seeing blood and limbs chopped off, this is a series you’ll love as much as I do. 

       A huge con for me with the series is the relationship that Kouta and Yuka have with one another while being cousins. It still grosses me out to this day!😒

      If you choose to watch the English dub as I do, know that it is really cringy. How ever, I had mentioned to someone before that a lot of older anime’s don’t sound so great, and I feel that a lot of them have a lot to do with the audio systems we had back then. (So I can’t really blame the voice actors) Like Fruits Basket, I didn’t think the voices were that great back then but the new adaption sounds amazing, with the same voice actors.

      In what ever language you prefer, you should still watch this classic beauty of a series. I re watched the series on Hi Dive on VRV, It is phenomenal!👌🏻

        No trailer for this one because I really wanted to share the opening song instead. The music and the video are stunning!👌🏻

Magical Girl Apocalypse

April 1, 2019 | Manga | No Comments

Parental_Advisory

      Magical Girl Apocalypse is an action-horror manga written and illustrated by Kentarō Satō. The manga has 16 volumes out with a spin off series Magical Girl Site. A twist on the typical magical girl story that begins with Kii Kogami, a normal high school freshmen who becomes bored of his same old routine. He wishes for more excitement, but as they say “Be careful what you wish for”.

      As Kentarō gazed outside the school window, he still longed for a more entertaining life. What he witnessed that day was something truly terrifying, a teacher confronting a sweet little girl. With a swift hit to the head, the teacher’s head exploded. Kentarō quickly makes his way to the restroom to gather himself, but when he returns he finds that his classmates met the same fate.
       Magical girls like the one he had seen before are now terrorizing the whole world, killing everyone in sight. Now he and other survivors must do everything they can to stay alive and find out the events that lead to the devestation.

 

       Magical girl apocalypse was a rare find at one of my many Barnes and Noble adventures. My boyfriend was the one to pick up the manga, I wasn’t interested until he showed me a photo of the brutal carnage that was inside it, I was instantly won over. There are 16 volumes out now, but I only have up to Volume 9. 

       I loved this manga in the beginning but when reaching a certain point in the series, I began to get bored and lose interest. I personally feel that it was being dragged out way too much, and the ending should have been at an earlier volume. I have mixed feelings when it comes to this series, I have likes and dislikes, but I do feel you guys should check it out and see for yourselves since the series was good enough to get a spin off.  One really cool thing, was seeing all the different Magical girls and their powers. You guys will really get a kick out of them!

 

Murciélago

March 18, 2019 | Manga | No Comments

Murcielago

Parental_Advisory

      Murciélago, is written by Yoshimurakana and published by Yen press. It is a gruesome, sexually explicit manga about Kuroko Koumori a former mass murderer. Kuro has a death count of 715 people since childhood and struck a deal with the police to be their hit man. It’s safe to say that Kuroko enjoys her job. She along with her partner Tozakura Hinako hunt and solve cases that are too much for police to handle, ones that involve other serial killers. In this series we follow along as they encounter and fight different killers, sometimes with the help of new friends/lovers. These girls are a force to be reckoned with, which makes every battle exciting.

      Kuro is a deathly skilled fighter, intelligent, perverted, and a sucker for a pretty girl.  She has a girlfriend Chiyo Yanaoka, whose father is a yakuza boss, strong in her own right. How ever, this does not stop Kuro’s overly flirtatious ways. They both clearly have feelings for one another more so than just sexual interactions.

Kuro-Murcielago
       Her partner in crime Hinako is a bubbly high school student, who has a need for speed. She loves anything with an engine, is childish and a bit of an airhead. Through out the series we find out that there is more to her than we originally thought, a possible darker side.

      This manga is not for everyone, it has explicit content, nudity, sex, and gory murders. If you’re old enough, enjoy yuri, don’t mind sexual content, and can handle gruesome deaths, then this is the manga for you. I’ve enjoyed all the volumes that have been released so far. Vol. 1-9 are already in stores, and vol. 10 is set to come out in April. The manga comes wrapped in plastic which is always a good sign for me. Murcielago is written and drawn beautifully, I hope it continues to be exciting as it has been. Don’t worry, it’s not hentai, nothing too outrageous is shown.

I was hesitant on watching a anime about idols, singing and dancing. Totally not my thing. Despite my hesitation I decided to give this anime a shot and was pleasantly surprised. Zombie Land Saga is not your traditional idol anime. I could not wait for each episode to air, all the songs were catchy, I needed to know what happened to these girls. The show had tons of comedic moments and heart wrenching stories, I found myself laughing and shedding a tear. I even have my favorite girl out of the bunch, Saki. Episode two has one of my favorite moments as well, that corresponds to this picture of Sakura. Here is hoping we get a season two soon, I need more!
