Strange goings on in the upstairs apartment

The people in the apartment above me have been gone off and on all summer. Not too odd as they're students. This last time they've been gone for at least 20 days or so as one of the pieces of mail piling up on the entry way floor is the rent bill. Well about 5 minutes ago I hear some people in the hallway and look out the peep hole. 5 people were there reading some directions and they mention the apartment number and go up to the apartment and go in. 2 more guys come in from outside (one was pissing in the weeds next to the parking lot) and go up. I see one car for sure that's new, a mercedes with Ontario plates. At least one of the people that's been living upstairs is canadian.

This is all striking my as really odd for some reason, especially since it didn't seem like any of the 2 normal residents were with this group, plus they all had some form of suitcase or bag with them and it's 7 people in a 2 bedroom apartment.

They sound like the kind of movers who only take the cool stuff.

So, ask the landlord about your new neighbors. That is kinda creepy.

Look at it this way... at ground zero when it goes off you'll be flash fried before your brain is even cognizant that something is happening

Entertain them with lackluster stories from your local paper.

I noticed today when I left that there is a new blank sticker on the mail box for their name, so the landlord is at least somewhat aware
and only 2 people ended up spending the night
so it was probably just some paranoia, but at the time something didn't seem right

Seems like just cause to break into their apartment while they're gone and start snooping through all their stuff. Just be sure to bring along a fat, nosy guy and and an NRA member/vietnam vet.

It still doesn't seem right.

Maybe you could slip 'em a note under their door (constructed with letters torn from various magazines) that says, "I saw what you did and I know who you are!", and you can sign it, "OW3NED".

That always upsets Canadians in our neighborhood.

THEEK!
