The one woman from the really bad group home on Stinson (the one with the porch screamers), is back out again. This is the woman who's a real piece of work.
Usually, the cold winter months give you a break from her sheer nastiness. The rest of the time, she's accosting you out on the street, or sits on the lawn of the adult learning centre, waiting. It takes a bit of trickery to avoid her, otherwise, she's right up in your face.
So today, I was caught off guard. She's not due for another couple of months. Instead, I was trapped right in her web of awfulness. And any encounter at all, or even just avoiding her, completely ruins your day.
Don't get me wrong -- I love living in a mixed neighbourhood, and think it's best for people to be exposed to standards of living other than their own. That said, she is a nasty, nasty woman, a black hole of negativity you must resist, and I would be happy never to see her again.
