Those Lovely Neighbors Upstairs

POST #    1269

I seem to have new neighbors upstairs and they are already on my bad side. First, I get a note from them asking me to keep the volume of my television or radio lower in the middle of the night because they "are unable to sleep with its current volume." What?!? My TV isn't that loud. And what is the middle of the night? 3 AM? 4 AM? Well, I'm never up at those hours, so that can't be me. And if 1 AM is considered the "middle" of the night, then they need to stay up longer.

Then, in yesterday's insane deluge, the "man of the house" pretty much went apeshit. He called the building super an "idiot" because he didn't speak English and was sweeping the water out of the hallways. Sweeping seemed logical since there was so much water that a bucket, which the goon was calling for, could never hold all the water. Then the jackass starts yelling, "He needs to call a construction crew, the fire department, anyone! I'm calling the police." Uh...yeah, I'm sure that's what you're supposed to do when there is water all over the place, call the police.

- "911, what's your emergency?"
- "Yes, my building is leaking, and the super is not putting buckets down."
- "Is your life in danger, sir?"
- "No, but my precious, precious walls. And he's just sweeping the water out of the hallways."
- Click.
- "Hello?"

Ah, gotta love it when people overreact.

Maybe your neighbor is related to my clomping upstairs neighbor.

Hey, sorry about the neighbor, we all have them. Yes, I am in South Florida. Great, Hurricane Charley hits on the left, Frances comes in on the right and it looks like Ivan is coming straight up the middle.
