Ever have one? I'm sure the majority of you have, at least once in your life. Right now my husband and I have one. Fortunately we are in an apartment/condo and the company who we rent from has other units available in the same complex. This weekend we will be moving about 100 yards away to get away from this guy. Often times with nutty neighbors it is impossible to deal with them in a rational way because THEY are not rational. This is exactly the case with our neighbor.
We had received a letter in the mail from the Homeowners Association about a complaint from a neighbor regarding our excessive noise at late hours. Well, since my husband has to get up for work at 7am we generally aren't up real late, 11pm is around when we go to bed. My husband went down to ask if they knew anything about the letter and of course it had nothing to do with him. As most of you know, I'm unemployed and so obviously I'm at home all day. I spend most of my time sitting on the computer but of course I do household chores too. Now, I'm 5 feet tall and though I could lose 5-10 pounds I certainly don't think I'm overweight but according to our neighbor I walk around all day like a herd of elephants. So over the past few days I have literally been tip-toeing around so as not to disturb them below. Apparently this was the guy's only complaint about us and that is not excessive noise and nor is it in the late hours. Oh and I should add that he believes I'm doing it on purpose to pi$$ him off! Like I said, NOT rational.
While it is a pain to have to pack everything up and move from a place that I really like to another because of someone else, my husband and I both agree that life is too short to be in a situation like this. Why be unhappy and always worried about being harassed by the HOA and the nutty neighbor? Moving what personal possessions we have is a small price to pay. With my mother-in-law(who is 81) coming to visit in May it is also a better idea to not subject her to any of this. One funny thing is that despite the other unit we are moving into being slightly smaller than the current one and in between as opposed to on a corner as we are now, it is MUCH nicer as far as the interior goes.
