Okay I understand.
Thank you.

I've been fortunate to only have lived in apartments for a couple of years, and never in a multistory complex.
Wait - there's difference? Doesn't multistory complex consist of these very apartments you talk about? It's like you say apartment is sth. else in America, not little flats people live in within the same building. Strange.

The apartments I lived in were all on one level, 5 or 6 units. There were no upper floors. Across the street from one of them was an apartment complex - lots of apartments, think about 5 levels. In the big cities there are apartment complexes with 20 or more levels, and sometimes several complexes jammed together. Not very nice at all, especially if the electricity goes out or  there 's a problem with water pressure.

I gather floor is synonym with level. Anyhoo, when people spit in the streets. They walk casually spitting. Perhaps they should carry plastic bags to spit. Vandalism, esp. lame stuff like "[random guy/ girl name] I love you" written in random street buildings like garages. Maybe best to say it to face, else it looks like buncha chickens anonymously publishing their feelings to garage walls.

Oh, spitting ! A BIG pet peeve! There's no need for it. Gross!

I almost wish our graffiti was along the lines of "Sherri I love you." Most of it consists of gang symbols. Or the obnoxious guy who goes around spray painting " ACHOO! " on public buildings.

Hey, NOLA, did you know about trend "vocal fry"? People say it's teen/ youth thing, adult commenters say it's annoying to hear it. What puzzles is to see it dubbed "trend". I tried to do it but it's really pain in the neck, difficult. I figured it's people who naturally talk that way, i.e. regardless age.

I've heard it but didn't know that it was called "vocal fry."
 I find it a bit annoying. I hear it mainly from some young women giving interviews. Are they doing it on purpose? Anyway, RR, please don't try to imitate them . That's not how regular American women talk

To me, it's annoying if indeed they do it purposely. Better stay with real voice, fry doesn't add coolness, it sounds like choking.
Speaking re: American, is New Orleans city with too many traffic jams? Will you tell?

We have some traffic jams, but they are not usually that bad. It can be slow in our interstate or bridges during the "rush hours" - 0600-0900, and 1500-1800 - when most people are going to or going home from work.
But it's nothing like you see in places like Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta , or along the East Coast between Washington, D.C. and Boston.

Dots dots dots dots dots. "What............eh....well.......it's nice.........". "LMAO", "ROFL", "af" (?), "lololololololol", "AMG" (?), "lel" (?), "OML" (?), "xX [username] Xx" (?), rating tales differently going by its title/ narrative "5 out of 10 cookies", "3/10 weird vampires", "2/10 sharp teeth", to tell few.

Recently seen Karen Carpenter/ The Carpenters documentary; thing that really made I cringe is tacky fruitless "real events' envisioning", by actors that don't even the slightest look like real people they play. "Karen" is simply bad. "Richard" is bizarre to say the least. Ditto "parents" & everybody else. It's good this film included interviews with Dionne Warwick & few people who knew Karen well, f.ex. neighbors. But, it's ruined by the above. Wish it been exclusively family & friends interviews, Carpenters' music clips, Karen's & Richard's interviews, i.e. real footages.
