Crime on the Blue Line is a Headache for travel in Oak Park, IL especially with the World Series on the way!

Just as you thought it was alright to ride the blue line CTA trains again from Oak Park, IL to downtown Chicago, now another crime spree:

I know first thing you will say is that “hey that’s Chicago not Oak Park, IL but considering that the Blue line runs through Oak Park, IL at least three times you should be worried about such a criminal element coming to Oak Park, IL. If they have access to the blue line it would be foolish to believe that they would stay upon that train within the Chicago metro area waiting to be caught. Although I am saying “they: and “them” we are dealing with criminals obviously that are very violent you will beat the shit out of you while robbing you.

The imaginary boundary that exists in Oak Park, Il will not protect it or its residents like this from crime spreading here nor will safeguard residents going into the city. We cannot just look the other way we have to be diligent when going into the city and around the areas near the blue line stops here in Oak Park, Il. I say that because criminals usually try to stay very close to their avenues of transport or escape so if they migrate to Oak Park, Il for a change of venue then all the delusional hippies might get knocked in the head for their money or some idiot kids walking while paying attention to their phones could get those items stolen easily.

When one thinks of this type of possibility you can easily get nervous or even overreact but again all that is needed is to be alert and realize that you are in the real world even though you are in Oak Park, IL. Don’t fool yourself and keep alert this may f up your drinking plans for the World series but it is better safe than sorry.

24 hour Parking stickers in Oak Park, IL

One of the biggest problems in Oak Park, Il is of course parking. Second to that then is getting the sticker for your car in person, and do not do what I did and try to fall for their pure bullshit campaign of attempting to get the coveted: 24-hour-park-anywhere-in-your-zone sticker! I did once and what a fool was I! The line reached out the door of the municipal/village building, and I was there at 6am in the morning trying to get the elusive 24-hour sticker. Again this is Oak Park, IL spreading the illusion of a sticker that normal residents cannot get. In fact, my neighbor works for the village and he has a 24 sticker on his car, I have also noticed a few people with 24-hour stickers wearing clothes that have an Oak Park departmental logo on them. Meaning, they, the owners of the vehicles with the

Again this is Oak Park, IL spreading the illusion of a sticker that normal residents cannot get. In fact, my neighbor works for the village and he has a 24 sticker on his car, I have also noticed a few people with 24-hour stickers wearing clothes that have an Oak Park departmental logo on them. Meaning, they, the owners of the vehicles with the 24-hour stickers, work for the village so employees get first come no one served??

At this point like any sane person, I am trying to get the hell away from such craziness and away from here if I can. Hopefully, I am wrong and some residents who do not work for the village or have no relatives that do actually get this elusive sticker but everywhere I drive I see automobiles with either a “Night” sticker or a “Day” sticker (or even both) that’s it, making this 24-hour sticker very unique.

Why would the village even sell these stickers when it goes against some of the parking rules in certain areas? When it puts a spotlight on the stupidity of having the streets clear but for one or two cars at night?

When I paid for my sticker the cashier made a joke that “Oak Park is known as No Park, but that’s not true…” I am starting to think she was lying to me! Because if the lack of these 24-hour stickers are an indication of anything it just emphasizes the lack of common sense for zoning, and parking restrictions in Oak Park, IL, plus it shows that there is preferential treatment for a select few. Obviously, by all the other opinion pieces out there, I am not the only one that thinks this a mess, comment as you like.

PS: I would like to really know if someone who (again) not related to a city worker got one of those 24-hour stickers!

Fu(king Rude kids stepping on my feet in Oak Park, IL

I see that there is a spike in crime around Oak Park, IL so I wonder why do parents let their kids walk around without teaching them to focus their attention upon their environment instead of their I-pad or I-phone? God, I sound like my father! But you have seen tons of these kids just walking down the street, oblivious to the world around them. I drive down the street and these kids are simply walking across the street nearly getting hit because they (and the driver) are not paying attention.

In a time when grown adults are getting beaten for their electronics on the Blue Line “L” you would think the parent of Oak Park, IL would tell their kids a thing or two about the world. There is no need to racially profile because color is not equal to the deciding if an individual is a criminal or not. Just a couple of minutes of telling these kids that they need to pay attention as they walk down the street, so that their kids do not become a statistic.

I had one kid walk straight down the street towards me, I walked a little left so did they, walked right they walked right, all the while looking down into their I-phone. Of course ,they nearly walked into me, as if they saw me for the first time, my first thought was if this was a scene out of a movie I probably just got pickpocketed! But no alas they did not even know I was there. I have seen kids walk down the street with their parents having to tell them to look up or pay attention.

I have even been stepped on by a little teenager in the Walgreens on Lake street because the little girl was skyping on her phone, I mean come on! I know it’s your status “symbol” but there is no need to: 1. Step on me, 2. Be skyping about your private conversation in a public place loudly, 3. Step on me 4. Not pay attention to your immediate environment and 5. Step on me! Now, I am all about social media but I do not want to get a beat down because I was that easy a target, or that I made the device that enticing to some nutcase.

Now yes, you should be able to walk down the street without worrying, in theory, but with the way Chicago has become crime central, who has nine lives to put that theory to the test? Parents in the area need to tell their kids to put their devices away and pay attention especially to people who are just walking down the street or are walking down the same aisle in the store as they are. I doubt this would happen because the residents, the parents of these special mini-mes are drinking the Kool-Aid Oak Park, IL is serving.

Believing that this is one of the safest places in the area and probably the world is not reality nor does it not help these young’uns to enter the real world. All this acceptance of false safety, acceptance of public display of one’s wealth or withdrawal from the rest of one’s immediate environment just leads to increased chance for their children to become a crime statistic. At the end of the day, I hope these kids learn their lesson the easy way, instead of the hard way, and quit stepping on my ass.

Am I alone seeing the kids of Oak Park, Il walking around focusing on nothing but the electronic device (I-phone, phone, I -pad, etc.,)? Have you been stepped on or ran into but these little omniscient gnomes of travel?

Oak Park, IL …hey I am Witch so what?

I know a lot of people read my stuff and go “what a bitch!” but you know what? -Who cares because I am just saying what I know is true about Oak Park, IL and I will not apologize if my experiences and something like proven facts smack their bias right in the face and derailed the “pretty picture” they want to paint for Oak Park, IL.

I have heard a couple people mention how correct I am. They too have mentioned how much they hate the bullshit that is presented to them by the delusional idiots here. So if they want they can simply buy me the following shirt: https://www.teepublic.com/t-shirt/621208-basic-witch me and my peeps will gladly wear it we do not care.

I thank you all for your support and for reading my blog about my crap experiences and viewpoints about Oak Park, IL but I would like to hear from you as well!!!! Comment all you want really!

Listen I am too damn lazy to delete stuff and sometimes to edit my own crap, so say what you want!

Where to go in Oak Park, IL to watch the Chicago Cubs win?

So if the Cubs win the World Series are people in the Chicago going to riot I just want to know not because I want a free television (lol) but I wonder what that means for Oak Park, IL? Is everyone going to jump on the bandwagon or what? It’s a shame I do not know where there are some local places to go around here to enjoy the games but again when there are no real businesses that promote such “activities” what you are going to do?

Well go elsewhere, of course, tons of spots inWrigleyville, and all around the city to go to hang out and have a couple of drinks watch the games and get into shape for the eventual meltdown if this IS the year. Unfortunately, because there are no real places that one can go to in Oak Park, Il for these type of things, because it is so quiet, like a crypt ha ha.

Hopefully, I will not get raped, mugged, or simply just jumped coming off one of the cta lines out here in Oak park, Il, after leaving a game, but of course that can “happen anywhere” unfortunately it should not happen here, but alas there is a possibility that it might, a chance that it might. If the Cubs make it to the series I am ready to take that chance and hope that I do not have to park too far away from a train stop on a dark dimly lit street (tons of those in Oak Park, IL).

I guess my main complaint is the lack of Cub “fever” here or venues to play in, I would like stuff to do here that I do not see tons of kids, or pretentious behavior just adults and some fun times. Jesus, sheer boredom on a stick.
