Just need to vent for a minute. I had my nephews sleep over last night. They are 5 and 7. So kids being kids they play on the floor, run around my apartment, and talk loudly when they get excited. My downstairs neighbor is a grandmother and babysits her 4 grandchildren nearly every day. Those kids are just as loud as my nephews. Anyway, about 10 minutes after my nephews arrived last night this woman starts pounding on the walls, and did so another 30 or 40 times last night. This morning we went out for breakfast, when we came back she pounded on the walls again before we could even get up the stairs. The pounding continued for the rest of the morning. About an hour ago my brother came to pick up the kids and he had his father-in-law with him. So the kids, excited to see their grandfather, begin talking loudly. The woman went CRAZY. She started pounding, yelling, stomping, throwing things, the whole nine yards. My brother and his FIL were like 'what the heck?' so I told them what was going on. I walked them outside and my brother, loud enough for the neighbor to hear said, "Thanks for taking the kids, Kenny. It's just too bad children aren't welcome here." After the kids left I knocked on her door to try to talk to her. She didn't answer, not that I can blame her, she probably knows she was in for an earful. Now as I sit here typing this, I'm listening to one of her grandkids cry, while 2 or 3 more run around her apartment. Does she think I can't hear this? I've never complained to the building manager, but I'm definitely voicing my complaint on Monday morning. Not only about this, but her daughter (who I think is living there off the lease) constantly parking in my spot, and the stench of her cigarette smoke. My brother even said he was going to call the manager on my behalf. Rant over. Thanks for listening. Also, before anyone asks, I practice bass with headphones, and I'm not at home about 10 hours a day. FOOTNOTE: Her grandson is still crying, and she just yelled, "Shut up! What are you, on your period?! Classy, huh?
