Lakewood Woman Blogs About Apartment Building's Empty Pool



The pool at Mayfair Apartments in Lakewood was not filled with water or floaty toys or fun-loving games of "Marco Polo" this weekend. And that is very sad, because it was blisteringly hot outside.

One local blogger decided to take management to task by drafting a tale of the "worst pool party ever." And it's a woeful yarn. The temperature was skyrocketing on Saturday, and it was clearly a perfect afternoon for a dip in the pool. But things went wrong as soon as she arrived: "Currently, there is a giant crater in the back yard with about two inches of last year’s stagnant piss water in the ‘deep end’ near the drain."

We appreciate the prose, even though the issue at hand is most dire. Leaving an empty pool to roast in the sun is borderline criminal shit this deep into June.
