I guess that's the point. It's no big deal any more.
The point is these Hollywood types (and such) are driving up my rent.
Thankfully, my landlord allowed me to renew my lease a while back.
I begged and crawled, but I'm a very good tenant.
My rent has gone up however, a good bit.
My salary has not.
My last "raise" was a gift card for a free meal at Popeyes stapled to my contract.
But I'm not complaining. That's more than I've seen in the past five years.
When I went down to my landlord's
I met the guy who now lives below me.
He was paying a full year's rent in one fell swoop.
Who has that kind of money???
Oh, wait, lots of people.
He works in the film industry, it seems....wafted in from Hollywood.
It's all good for the city, of course. It's not the city it was ten years ago, and for that I am grateful,
but, sheesh, I'm just trying to not be driven back into the suburbs by all this gentrification.
