I knew I lived in an area of town that didn’t have a good address, but I thought everyone knew where the area was.
I didn’t want to go outside after dark, and that was when I got home from work half the year.
I hated going outside during the daytime because my home was in a rough part of town. A single young woman didn’t want to be alone on the streets. Normally, my fiance would come to my apartment and take me wherever I needed to go, but he wasn’t available. I placed an order into the cannabis dispensary and made it for delivery. I had seen several delivery services in our area, so I thought the cannabis delivery driver should know where to go. An hour after the appointed time for my cannabis delivery, the delivery driver still hadn’t arrived. I called the cannabis dispensary and asked them where he was. I almost laughed when she told me he was lost. He was new to this area and knew nothing about my side of town. He was going up and down streets looking for my address, but afraid to ask anyone. He didn’t even want to roll down his window. I gave her directions so he could get to the house and told her I would come outside so he didn’t need to get out of his car. I thought I was scared living in this neighborhood, but the cannabis delivery driver was worse than I was. The older ladies who lived in the surrounding apartments laughed when I told them about the cannabis delivery driver. They said they would walk with me whenever I wanted to go out.
