Just came home and I get a note saying they will be checking my apartments sprinklers and smoke alarms .
They do this every year ?

Sorry I just don’t like strange men “ sneaking around “ my apartment when I am not home

Piss off the Fire Department and they will shut your business down.

I seem to remember a fire inspection when I lived in Nevada. It's normal.

The fire hose on the hook and ladder truck has absolute authority for full access to your home day or night whether you are aware of it or not.

I don't like them sneaking around my place even when I am home. Is that a district where it's a felony to possess lock picking tools and the cops carry batons, saps, and body bags to take care of vagrants sleeping in the hallways?

It isn't sneaking if they tell you they are going to do it. Odds are they will tell you once they have done it as well. I once walked in on someone doing maintenance without having the least clue as to who he was or why he was there. I just encountered a strange man in my apartment coming out of the bathroom who started chatting me up when I walked in the door. It was a bit of a strange thing until I figured it out. He had changed the furnace filters and was just checking for drips or leaks in the plumbing that might need attending to.

strange man in my apartment ... chatting me up ... changed the furnace filters
What the fuck? Are all you apartment dwellers high on second hand weed smoke or is there a bong in the corner somewhere with a CBD infusion to create a party atmosphere for the whole building?

On the day they inspect, just put your weed and your porn away. It will be fine. And yes, this is normal in some states.

The right to inspect is in your lease.

Primarily to make sure you don't have any illegal firearms or lock picking tools in your apartment. Receipts for all the clothes in your closet. Not joking. There are some extremely "high end" shops in New York.

Nope. I was in college at the time and strange man in my apartment, as explained, was doing routine maintenance. And trust me, he was not someone you wanted to chat up often unless you had time on your hands. He was a fresh outof the oven 12-stepper who was very much into sharing his story, spreading the gospel, yada yada

The Good News of the New Testament has long since been revoked by America's modern medical Establishment which continues to practice Old Testament medicine with medieval instruments.

Date rape drugs and everything. Why isn't the Christian religion practiced as it is preached?

Well Old Testament is pre-Christ so I am not sure it is that Christian, not that it really matters. People pick and choose what they want regardless. Either way, they haven't cancelled Alcoholic's Anonymous yet, and quite frankly, every recovered alcoholic I have knonw to go through them leaves me with the uneasy feeling that they just might be their own special church that just they know the inner secrets of--Mormon 2.0 perhaps. People coming out of their ranks seem very cultish.

I used to go to a church that was an outgrowth of a so-called "Fourth Period" awakening or temperance movement that took place in the 1800s. Protestant Christianity is divided into several epochal revelations or periods of visitation.
  • First Period: Bloody persecution from the Birth of Christ until Christianity became religio licita under the reign of Emperor Constantine.
  • The Millennium: The Dark Ages from 300s to 1300s A.D. were characterized by cruel and hideous medieval tortures in secret catacombs and hidden chambers.
  • Second Period: The Lollards, the Bohemian brethren and the burning of John Huss at the stake. One might say "LGBT" in modern language.
  • Third Period: The Lutheran Reformation, which included Calvin, Zwingli, and many others. An emphasis on (straight) monogamous marriage and family life.
  • Fourth Period: The temperance and sobriety movements of the 1800s to the present day.
