Jerry Springer, meet my neighbors

I live in an apartment complex close to campus.
The people who live in the apartment above me are usually quiet, or at least quiet enough not to bug me.
Last night, at 3 a.m, they were stomping around, yelling loud enough to wake everyone on the block, which they continued in the hallways and then outside where they could still be heard quite clearly. This went on for twenty minutes or so. It was bad enough that the cops had to be called and get involved. To people like this, all I have to say is...WTF???? Where's Mr. Rogers when you need him?
I think the apartment above me is cursed. The tenants before these two gems moved in were a gay couple. I'm not homophobic. My uncle is gay, and I support gay marriage. However, I didn't enjoy hearing them moaning loudly at odd hours of the night (and day).

Anyone else have any delightful neighbor stories to share?

Proverb of the day: "Choose your neighbors before choosing your house."

Our neighbour is a psycho.. Once he almost smacked my brother in the face because he parked his car in front of their house.. Luckily my brother does the martial art-stuff so he saw it coming and ducked, but still.. Not quite normal I'd say.
Once he pulled a cyclist off his bike because they made some remark that didnt amuse him..

And previous weekend, my brother had a big party in the garden here.. They were pretty loud, but not annoyingly loud and after midnight they turned down the volume of conversation and the music.. At around 2.30am my brother rings me up: someone had put, on the mat, right in front of the door, a HuGe pile of horse-shit!! Now, there's no way to be sure, but the neighbour is our prime-suspect!

Hey Sxy...yikes! Sounds like one scary, psychotic dicksmack. Makes me think the neighbors I just complained about aren't so bad.

I used to live on an Air Force base, where you neighbors all knew your business. The woman next door would send her kids outside to listen to conversations if a guy came over to my house.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Hi Daphne...ugh...nosy, snooping neighbors are the pits, especially getting the kids to do the snooping. I think I would've been tempted, while the kids were snooping, to randomly throw in words like "cunnilingus" and send the kids home asking, "Mommy, what's cunnilingus?" Mighta put the kabosh on that nonsense.

My neighbor tried to convince me that the garage under my apartment was mainly for her use and she had a freezer set up down there when I moved in. Makes sense, right? She is renting a big house and I'm renting a tiny little apartment over its own garage. My lease even states that I'm renting the building.

My landlords were bright enough to move her freezer over to her house before I backed out of my lease (sigh). She and I get along now for the most part because I've learned when it's best to just avoid her.

Hey Real, at least your landlords took care of it...I'm starting to get the feeling that Avoid thy neighbors would make a better commandment.

At another house I lived at, our dog used to go outside and do what dogs do, so we'd clean it up, of course! But, our next door neighbour was convinced that our huge dog was laying these teeny little turds on her lawn, and that we were refusing to pick them up, so one day she picked up the steaming piece of crap and threw it at my Ex!!! Hit him in the face...OMG. He called the cops, and guess what? They DIDN'T charge her with assault! And the cop even looked at it, and the size of our dog, and said, no way, that's a tiny dog's poop...!!!

We moved shortly thereafter, and don't even ask me about the drunk in the basement, there, who used to sing and yell about the Nuns at odd hours...!!! LOL

Wow at the poop flinger...what a piece of work! Here's hoping her shit hits the fan more often than at the drunk...I don't imagine he could carry a tune in a bucket. Sounds like a weiner.

My neighbor across the street had a big family style party to celebrate her 70th. Ballons, music, barbequed shrimp and chicken, beverages, entertainment for the great grand kids... A good time was had by all (based on the laughter). When the family members left, everyone was hugging.

One person was driving a pick-up with a boat in tow. As he was backing out, he backed into the SUV of another extended family member. The propeller of his boat significantly damaged the SUV. The driver of the pick-up stopped, cursed, and then drove off! No note, he did not go inside and find out who owned the SUV - hye didn't do anything. And this is how he treats his family member who he just hugged.

Hey, I like your blog. Stop by and check out my blog (leave a comment if you do so I know that you were there).

Hi Bambi, thanks considerate of him. At least it's not your neighbor that's crazy, but her family member, who I imagine doesn't get invited over too frequently anymore.

My one neighbour is an elderly woman in her late seventies who always locks herself out of her house, her son gave me a spare set of keys, so if I am at home I usually have to let her in at least twice a day!

SleekIcilyVarix replies on 6/14/2006 3:49 am:
lol...cute. Sounds like a funny lady and a minor inconvenience. At least she's consistent, right?

I have a solution: Why dont u move up there the next time it is vacant and then no more crazies will live there.

I could, but knowing my luck, crazies will move into this apartment instead. The curse would just move and the only difference would be is they'd be below me instead of above me.
