OT: Is it too much to want good neighbors JUST once?
I live in a quad-plex (or whatever the hell you want to call it) Thank merciful God the walls are not super thin like the last duplex I lived in, because my neighbors are screamers. It's just how they communicate, talking just isn't their thing. I can hear them screaming at each other, and I can out some of what they're screaming but only because my house is very quiet most of the time.
For the first few weeks we lived here I thought that they had an extremely ill behaved dog, which would have been odd since this particular housing doesn't allow dogs, but I know many people think rules are for chumps so it wouldn't have surprised me in the least if they DID have a dog. The main thing screamed is "GOD DAMMIT LUCY GET THE FUCK DOWN!!!!!" "NO, NO, NO LUCY!!!!!" etc. Ill behaved dog is a safe assumption...right?
Nope...it's their kid. :-/ She's not even 2 and they spend ALL DAMN DAY just screaming at her. I ran into wife and kid outside one day, so I know she's not a dog, she's a toddler. If they're not screaming at that kid, they're screaming at each other "I FUCKING TOLD YOU TO DO THIS" "GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM ME!!" etc. They yell at each other equally, and at the kid all the time. The kid also spends a good portion of her time screaming, and kicking walls.
I don't know if I should complain about them, or say something to them, or just keep on ignoring it like I have been. I don't know HOW they're not bothering the people on the other side of them, maybe they're loud asses too...who knows. I'm too old for this shit.
Is it too much to hope that when that guy gets out in a few months that I get some good neighbors? Probably... I'd like non-crappy neighbors just once... just one time. It doesn't matter if I live in housing or not, I always have at least one super shitty neighbor. :-/
