Multifamily Living Out Loud

Tv_explode_cup_2 The neighbor thing hasn't really improved. I typed up a letter last night and intended to slip it on his door today. It was friendly, but I was still afraid of making things worse. My brother is of the opinion I should learn to put up with noise, but that if it bothers me, leave a post it signed "concerned neighbor." My friend Leslie thinks I should just knock. I did this evening discover an activty other than sleeping that keeps his TV quiet. I'm not quite sure how to put this in a family-friendly way. Getting some. Alone. Yes, I have to hear "that," but "that" is in some ways better--easier to avoid and drown out. So, I'm thinking a gift subscription to Hustler is in order... :) I'll sign the card "a concerned neighbor."

  1. Haha!! I seriously thought of knocking the ceiling with a broomstick for the same reason with my upstairs neighbor. Do you remember my crazy upstairs neighbor & his REALLY CRAZY girlfriend when I lived in Alexandria??? He actually eventually got evicted because he violated a restraining order that was supposed to prohibit her from entering the building!
